Moulaidh aged two wins her second CC and goes BEST IN SHOW at Berkshire Downs and Chilterns GRC Championship Show Nov 4th 2017 Judge Angela Cooper
Moulaidh (Gaelic for Little Treasure) aged 7 months
Moulaidh has exceeded all our expectations. She has the confidence her mother lacks, and a combination of the best of both her parents' conformation, plus she is a delight to live with (when she isn't eating TV remote controls!)
Moulaidh went Best Minor Puppy in show at her first outing, qualified for Crufts at her first Championship Show and has not looked back since. One of the many highlights to date was winning Best Puppy in Show, Best Bitch and eventually BEST IN SHOW at the Golden Retriever Club of Scotland Open Show at the tender age of nine months under respected judge Dr Antonio Lopez Noguera (Ria Vela kennel Spain) Huge thanks to him and also to my friend and handler when my knees play up, Paula Hill, pictured below
Moulaidh gained her Junior Warrant before her first birthday and is now concentrating on Championship shows (and possibly the odd Breed Club Open) Thanks to the many judges who have appreciated her and to fellow exhibitors for their camaraderie and support.
**UPDATE IN JUNIOR**
Moo continues to be a source of pride and excitement. The photo here courtesy of Maria Saarnit under whom she went BOB (subsequently Group 4) at 13 and a half months. So far in Junior she has won her classes at Driffield, Gundog Society of Wales, Midland Counties, Berkshire Downs and Chilterns GRC, Gundog Breeds of Scotland and LKA. She was shortlisted to the last four for the CC at Berks Downs, was closely considered for the RCC at Gundog Society of Wales, and ended the year winning the RCC at LKA! Thanks to all judges concerned for appreciating her as much as we do.
The icing on the cake is that she is showing promise as a worker also, and we hope to progress her training this winter season.
