Ellie who is 13 months old and having a bad hair couple of weeks was placed 2nd in the Papillon Open class.
Marnie was entered in two classes today her first class was Any Variety Toy Minor Puppy where she won 1st in the class. She then challenged the Pug who won the Puppy class for Special Best Puppy in Group which Marnie won. She then got 2nd in Papillon Graduate behind Tootsie (who won Best of Breed). We did stay for the Special Best Puppy in Show which was won by a very nice Bearded Collie puppy and a Norwich Terrier reserve. Marnie showed well considering we arrived at the show at 9am and the BIS was judged at 5.30pm.

WELL DONE "ABBEYTON TO SWEET TO KISS AT BONMESHAY"
At Richmond championship show Tootsie stepped into 1st place Puppy Bitch and then danced her way to BEST PUPPY IN BREED.
judge Hilary Byers (Chappell)
Well done also to her owners Anna Fraser and Gillian Graham
who prepare Tootsie to perfection each and every time.
1st: 2114 Miss G FRASER, Mrs A & GRAHAM Abbeyton To Sweet To Kiss at Bonmeshay NAF
Absolutely gorgeous girl, who still has very much to offer I’m sure, an outstanding head and expression, super level topline and a gorgeous tailset. Won this class on her excellent movement. Delighted to award her BP Really liked her and would like to see her as an adult.
Ellie attended Richmond Championship show 8th September 2006.
She was placed 2nd in Puppy Bitch being beaten only by her litter sister.
As this was only Ellie's 2nd champ show I was very pleased with how she handled the 10 hour bus journey (yes I went on a bus) to the show. She never stopped wagging her tail, trying to say "hello" to everyone and of course the usual when showing on grass, me trying to keep her nose off the ground became a game to her.
Well done Ellie, you made me realise that there is more to showing than the perfect pose. Fun does come into it. xx
