Final Championship Show of 2012

My show year has come to an end. Today at Bull Breeds All Breed show I entered four chesapeakes.  Three of them are Irish and UK champions and the fourth was competing at her first championship show aged seven months.This is the final championship show I plan to enter before next Spring as Thursday heralds the start of pheasant season and it becomes very difficult to keep condition  on the dogs during these months.

Our breed judge today was Ms O Murray from Ireland. She awarded Best of Breed and Green Star dog to Ir Sh Ch UK SH CH Riverrun Agus Avic( Mossy) . Reserve Green Star Dog to Ir Ch Int Ch UK Ch Penrose Nomad( Chester). Green Star Bitch was Riverrun Caution To the Wind ( Uisce ) and Reserve Green Star Bitch was Ir Ch Int Ch UK Ch Arnac Bay Winota ( Winnie).

This is Uisce’s first green star.

Mossy then went on to win Group 2 under Ms S. Walsh from Ireland.

It has been a phenomenal year. Marked with sadness through the loss of Breeze this time last year but finishing with her sister’s arrival in the show ring this year I feel incredibly blessed and humbled.

It is time now to draw breath, ease back and wade into the woods for the Winter where we will stand patiently waiting for the pheasants to come. And they will come. The real stories , my friends, are just about to begin….
