We had a good journey, not many people are mad enough to be on the road at this time of day, and we arrived just before 8 am giving time to change and settle in. We were greeted by wonderful sunshine that lasted all day, quite a change from most of the shows that we have attended this year.
Judging started promptly, and all the young handlers looked very smart going into the ring. Tasha handling Tilly as Trio is on maternity leave, and Eleanore with Maddie. Both Eleanor and Tasha gave creditable performances, and Tasha was delighted to be short listed. She gave such a lovely smile when asked to stay in the ring, but sadly wasn't placed. I was very proud of all of the girls (dogs included!).
Both Tasha and Eleanor really enjoyed the experience, and Richmond really do make the junior feel that it is their day.

Being 'down south' gave us the oppertunity to meet up with the seahaven clan in that area. We were delighted to catch up with Yoshi, Nutmeg, Megan and their families. They were all looking fantastic, and coped well with the show conditions, and all of the children!
In the breed classes Tilly gained a VHC in her class, and Maddie gained a 3rd in Limit in the LM classes.
