We had a fantastic day at Crufts 2013! Barak, for the second time, won his class at Crufts. This time he won Veteran Dog and then was awarded the Reserve Dog Challenge Certificate from a fantastic entry with dogs coming from all over Europe. Porenn, at her first Crufts, won second in a strong limit class. Thank you to Ann Gates (Eagleridge) for a truly memorable day. Critiques can be seen on their pages.

Over the last month we have been sent some lovely photos of Barak and Porenn at Crufts. Thank you to everyone, especially Claire Jones (Runestone). Along with the beautiful photos taken of our hounds throughout the year, in and out of the ring, by Claire Parton and Lena Piehl (Kiromol) we have a fantastic record to keep.
Thank You.

August 2013
At the Hound Association Championship show Barak was back in the ring and had a great day by winning Veteran Dog. He was then awarded Best Veteran in Breed and represented the breed in a parade of Best Veterans. This was a great honour and Barak loved strutting his stuff in the big ring. Porenn also had a great day by winning Open Bitch and then the Bitch Challenge Certificate. A really wonderful day at one of the nicest shows of the year. Thank you to Breed Specialist, Gill Lawless, for thinking so highly of our hounds and giving us a day to remember.
The next day we went to Paignton Championship show where Barak won Veteran Dog under Hound Specialist, John Walton-Haddon.
At Bournemouth Championship show Porenn won Open under All-rounder, Frank Whyte.
The next show was the Welsh Kennel Club Championship show where Porenn won second in a strong Open class under Hound Specialist Mrs P Wells.
The final show was the Scottish Kennel Club Championship show. Porenn won a super Open class and was then awarded her third Challenge Certificate, which makes her a UK Champion. The judge was Breed Specialist, Sue Simper. This award means so much as the same judge gave Bethra her first CC and we are delighted that she thinks so highly of both of our girls. We are very proud to have bred two champions from just two litters and all of their top awards have been awarded by Breed Specialists.
