Wow – not sure 2019 could have started much better!
At Manchester, our first championship show with CCs, BOB under Patsy Hollings was Ch Lecibsin Ukas to Elbereth, and the RBCC was Elbereth Suvituuli JW, and Uka was shortlisted in the group under Lynne Salt.
Moving onto Crufts, where Pat Patch judged the breed, Uka won a strong open dog class, and baby Sampo attended his second show ever to win Junior dog with Selina. Star of the show was Elbereth Lumenlumo at 13 months of age winning JB and Post Grad bitch, and then topping this with the reserve CC!
Pup of the Year (POTY), was held for the first time, with the Top Winning Puppies at each show being invited to compete for the title, Tom Mather awarded POTY title to Elbereth Tuulenpoika JW
