Annual Gundog Import Register Special

The 7th of May saw the Barbet Club of GB hosting the annual import gundog register breeds match at Birmingham National Championship Dog Show at Stafford Showground.

This event took much planning and preparation, but thanks to a fabulous team all ran smoothly and the sun even shined for most of the day!

Our judge was the lovely Carole Wood (Marada) who has had over 50 years involvement in the gundog breeds.

The match is split into 4 categories Puppy, Open (for adult dogs), Special Champion (for dogs who are Champions or have three or more BOB BOS wins at UK Champ shows) and Veteran for dogs aged over 7.

The atmosphere both inside and outside the ring was fun, supportive, and absolutely lovely. There were cakes aplenty and many smiles.

Our winners were :

Best Puppy – Westaway’s Portuguese Pointer Nancy, Reserve Best Puppy Fox’s Portuguese Pointer Pendragon

Best Open – Gorian and Henry’s Portuguese Pointer Raine, Reserve Best Open Blair and Spencer’s Korthal’s Griffon Olive

Best Special Champion Taylor’s Portuguese Pointer Raine and Reserve Best Special Champion Gorian and Henry’s Portuguese Pointer Bonito

Best Veteran Blair’s Korthal’s Griffon Sage and Reserve Best Veteran Finch’s Portuguese Pointer Hallie

Thanks so much to everyone for help, support and entries – this event will be held again next year, but hosted by a different club, it is well worth entering.
