Most exciting news is the addition of Gino....a special boy Tara's first born to the beautiful Darcy, we only had one but she hasn't let us down, he is featured on the cover page and also has a page of his own now too :-)
Gino went to two open shows last week to dip his toes, at Blackwood he was BOB & BP and went on to PG1 under Mr David Everington, we never made it to BPIS as the BIS and RBIS were both puppies!
Next up was Ponurdulais where Gino was again BOB & BP, this time he went on to Group 2, PG1 under Mr Hughes and RBPIS under Mike Vines so off to a great start! :-)
At City of Birmingham Gino was well placed in his breed class under Linda Miles (Llanstinan) and then triumphed in the huge Puppy Stakes class of 51 under Mrs Jill Peak. He was beaten by the lovely Boston for the best of the day.
Dillon held the side up at WKC picking up his third RCC under Mrs Chris Oatridge and still not two years of age!
Exciting litter plans coming soon!
