Muddy Good News!
This weekend seemed to come and go in a flash, we were at the Richmond Championship show, which is Crufts qualifying breed show. Again the weather left a little to be desired, and unfortunately turned the show into literally a bit of a mud-bath, with us all covered in mud from walking through it, and nearly all vehicles having to be towed out!! Fortunately though, judging was able to be moved indoors as it was far too wet to be outside!! Still, all good fun!!
It was lovely to get the chance to meet up with all our friends again and also catching up with Jan who is Kiah's breeder, as we don't do that many breed shows we don't get to see them that often. Kiah loved meeting up with her 'own kind (!)' and it is nice to see how all the pups and dogs turn out if we haven't seen them in a while.
We were first in the ring at this show, and Kiah was entered into the PostGraduate bitch class, and was one of three, she showed amazingly well even if she wanted to run a little bit faster than she should!! Kiah looked ever so pretty with her beautiful shiny red and black fur-coat, and is now also the proud owner of a lovely dark brown rolled leather collar which we bought for her at the show. The even better news is that Kiah qualified for Crufts 2009 with 2nd place in her class!! Well Done Kiah!!
