25th July - Leeds CH Show

 

Another good weekend for CH Newlin Kestrel JW ShCM which saw him winning the CC and BOB at Leeds Championship Show from judge Ann Phillips (Lanesend). Interestingly Ann previously awarded Kes' father the CC and BOB the last time she judged.

Kizzy attended the day as a spectator and had a go at the Kennel Club Good Citizens challenge. She seems to have taken to obedience better than showing and passed with flying colours. This achievement means that the father and daughter team of Kizzy and Seamus have both passed their Good Citizens tests.
