Darlington Championship show was held at Newby Hall last weekend. Exhibitors must have been so glad that the weather was much kinder this year, the sun shone and the ground was dry - so different from last year's sea of mud!
I don't think that many club members made the journey south and the main successes came from the gundog group.
Katie's Lara was placed 2nd in her Puppy Bitch class. It seems to be a case of 'always the bridesmaid' for Lara as she's had a few such places at this year's champ shows. Fingers crossed for a 1st at the next one!
For one club member, this Darlington was definitely one not to be forgotten. Elizabeth was chuffed to bits when Asher was 2nd in Limit Dog class and then went on to take the RCC! The excitement didn't end there, however, because Bronni then won her Open Bitch class and took the CC and also Best of Breed! This was Bronni's second ticket so keep your fingers crossed that she goes on to get that all important third.
Congratulations Elizabeth and Katie - keeping the HPR flag flying!
