Susan and Monty have just come back from a win at the Royal Melbourne Show, the biggest dog show in the southern hemisphere. Together they were awarded 1st Place in the Junior Dog Class for Welsh Corgi (Pembroke). Congratulations to them both.
Monty has managed to get his first big win, just after his first birthday. On Saturday at The Oak Championship Show Monty took out Best in Breed for Pembroke Corgis. All in all a good day out by the airport.
This has given both Mrs CannibalRabbit and Monty a nice confidence boost, and recognition of 6 months of hard work showing. Only another 92 points to go until he gets the Champion title.
Monty and Mrs CannibalRabbit took out Best Minor Puppy in Group 5 at the Berwick All Breeds Kennel Club show on Sunday (13-Feb-2011). They were also awarded Reserve Corgi Dog. Congratulations to them both, the hard work is beginning to pay off.
Group 5 is the working dog class. Winning the group meant that they went on to compete against all of the other best in group Minor Puppies (6 to 9 month olds) in the show. The photo below is a moment in the Best Minor Puppy in Show ring when the judge’s concentration was elsewhere.
