Seahaven Mingles

Rookie has been such a lucky boy lately!

First of all, over Crufts we stayed up near Carol with the lovely Libby (Seahaven's Olympic Vindicat). On the Friday we enjoyed such a beautiful walk in Westonbirt Arboretum. Bushes to sniff, dogs to play with, puddles deep enough to swim in- what's not to love?

THEN...... Rookie's sister Megane came down to Cornwall for a holiday, so her mum and dad brought her up to Rookie's moor and he showed her around.

NSDTR Club Championship Show

Well, the Toller club champ show was a huge success this year!!! It was a lovely venue, a sunny day and some rosettes to take home :)

L-R Eve, Milly, Cooper & Tegan - all Seahavens

First in the ring out of our lot was Cooper (Seahaven Galactic Storm) with Dawn. Although they didn't win anything, Dawn handled really well and Cooper looked gorgeous. During the lunch break was the Junior Handling. There were 4 entries in the 12-16 age group and Tasha had 1st (handling Cooper) with Eleanor coming in 3rd (handling Eve).

After the lunch break were the bitch classes. Eve (Seahaven Parish Bell) went really well and won the graduate-bitch class. Then was post graduate-bitch, both Eve and Milly (Seahaven Red Andromeda) were entered in this and they both came out with rosettes (Eve had 1st and Milly had 3rd). The last class of the day for us was the special working bitch class. Eve was entered in this and out of strong competition, gained a second place to the dog that got Reserve best bitch. It was an enjoyable day and all of Seahaven did us proud!!!

Cooper and his funny drinking habit!

Crufts 2015

Finally home and starting to get a bit more organised after Crufts this year.  After showing on the Thursday, we drove home and then travelled back on Friday finally arriving home in the early hours this morning. 

Cooper - Seahaven Galactic Storm

The dogs did us proud as usual, and it was fabulous to catch up with the Seahaven's who we don't get to see too often.  The highlight though was Eleanor being shortlisted and then placed in the YKC 12 -16 handling, one of the youngest in this age category she really contended with the more experienced and older competitors.

Large Munsterlanders

Maddie - Paddockridge Madelaine at Seahaven - unplaced in Veteran, but she had a blast in the ring!
Trio - Seahaven Borrowed Heaven - VHC in a strong Limit class, then 3rd in GC.
Megane - Seahaven Celtic Cariad - Res in PGB
Uma - Seahaven Bouquet of Roses - sadly not placed in this big class, but so lovely to see her at Crufts.

Bron - Seahaven Gloriana 3rd in PGB
Milly - Seahaven Red Andromeda VHC in Limit and then 3rd in GCB.

A fabulous Crufts again for team Seahaven, sadly a few missed dogs who couldn't attend who had qualified.

It was lovely to catch up with the Seahaven gang at Crufts. Looking forward to the Toller club show. Double dose of Tollers in one month, brilliant! Here's Mills chilling on her bench. x
