Mildred appealed immediately and so was chosen to stay at Kastrian. She entered the showring at six months and we are very pleased with her progress.

At just six months, she was Best Puppy under Lesley Nesbitt, Puppy Group 1 and Reserve Best Puppy In Show at Honley Canine Society Agricultural Show under Eddie Webster.

 

This was supposed to be a picture of Mildred with her cup for RBPIS but she had other ideas.

 

At seven months, Mildred was awarded first place in Minor Puppy Bitch at Paignton Championship Show under Wilma Reid. The following week, she had third place in Minor Puppy Bitch at National Gundog Championship Show under Alan Crossley.

At eight months, she won Minor Puppy Bitch, Best Puppy Bitch and was awarded Best Puppy In Breed at the Welsh Kennel Club Championship Show under Janetta Fairbairn.

At twelve months, we went to Goyt Valley Gundog where Mildred was Best Of Breed under Graeme Hughes and Third Best In Show under Val Grant. A couple of weeks later, we heard from The Kennel Club that Mildred had been awarded Junior Warrant.

We are absolutely delighted and extend our sincere thanks to the Judges.
