Well! WELL!! Taken me a couple of days to get sorted with putting something on here but here it goes. Our trip to Manchester Championship Show at Stafford on Sunday was in parts a foggy jaunt but we had a blast! Angela’s homebred Chanangel Yorkshire Rose (WSS) was beautifully handled by 13 year old Granddaughter Elizabeth to gain the BPIB award. Nothing in the Group but they never put a foot wrong. The three generations of handlers along with friend Sharon Barkley competed in the Breeders Stakes and came out top of the shop with the Chanangel WSS team and we look forward to competing at Crufts in the Breeders competition final. My day was complete with the final CC being awarded to our delicious diva in the form of Cora (Calvdale Hot Pink JW ) whom several thought had been made up long ago. Well there you go. She is now and is another of the successful kids sired by Sh Ch Calvdale Night Court who incidentally we can now confirm is OD/Pro Plan Top Stud in ESS for 2019. Thanks to our judge Breed Specialist Marian Stowe for the crowning CC and for thinking so highly of her. Thank you to the good friends who supported us and her on our journey from Top Puppy through to the accolade of Show Champion (subject to KC confirmation). To Kelly, Sylvia and Marian a huge thank you. She is a challenge to show but love the bones of her and so pleased that she gained her title after you supported her. We will now turn our thoughts to a possible litter in 2020 if plans can be made. Well done to Jackie and Dave on BOB with Rafferty and to Celia with her puppy.
