Where to start?
We've had such a busy time recently that it's hard to know where to begin. All the pups have gone bar one - and Kilbarchan's Anika Ridley is staying here for the forseeable future. We wish all the luck in the world to Tom and Freddie, Denae and Ekimmu, Mia and Basse and Kirsten and Aja. There have already been some super photos and we look forward to many more over the years to come.
Emily and Ace went to Gent in Belgium. Ace won his Junior class, whilst Emily won Intermediate and then took the Res CACIB and Res CAC. Later we discovered that the CACIB winner was already an International Champion so the award passed down to Emily - which was very nice, but now means that she cannot be entered at the Club Limit Show which is coming up in April.

Then it was on to Crufts, and here the gang really excelled themselves. Poor Emily was left behind as she had come into season, but we had 1st
places in JD, PGD and VB with Ace, Tomas and Gloria, whilst Pamatka was 2nd
in OB to the eventual BOB, and took the RBB award. Erik was VHC in a very strong OD class that contained four champions, so all in all a great success.
It was lovely to see so many friends from overseas at the show.
