The Celtic Winners Show March 17th 2012 – a day to remember !

Posted on Wednesday, March 21st, 2012

After returning home from Crufts on Monday 12th March it was all systems go in order to prepare for the The Celtic Winners Show on Patrick’s Day.  We were absolutely thrilled to bits with the results on the day with Bulabos sweeping the boards.  Breed judge on the day was Mr. Paul Lawless. 

Our baby Niamh aka Islamorada Ruby Tuesday at sixteen months old takes first place junior bitch and JCW’12, she then went on to take the green star and reserve best of breed behind Robbie making her CW’12.

Our lovely Mia aka IR CH Islamorada Amazing Grace is first place Champion Bitch and reserve green star.

Robbie aka IR CH Lanebern Black Magic, IR Jnr CH, CJW’11 takes champion dog class, green star dog and best breed and CW’12. He then went on to be shortlisted to the final eight in Group 2 by Mr. Willie Dobbins. 

Mirrac aka Opdyke’s Midnight Miracle on his first outing takes green star and reserve best of breed and CW’12. 

A very big thank you to both Mr Paul Lawless breed judge and Mr Willie Dobbins group judge for thinking so highly of our dogs.  It was a special day and one to remember.

Saturday 10th March 2012 was the day for the Saints in the ring at Crufts this year.  Breed judge was Mr. Robin Searle.  Although we had three qualified for Crufts this year, Robbie, Mia & Hemlock, we only travelled with Robbie who was placed fifth in Open Dog.  Although the result was disappointing we more than made up for it with the great fun we had having a meal, a few beers and lots of laughs with friends. A very tiring weekend but so enjoyable. 

 A big thank you to our very good friend PJ O Rourke who travelled with us for all his help over the weekend and making the trip such a good laugh.

 Roll on Crufts 2013 !
