13/06/2014

A very sad day as we had to make the decision to say goodbye to our beautiful Mopi (Messano Jitterbug) following a short period of ill health - she would have been 13 in a few weeks.
She was our smiley, waggy tailed alarm dog - who considered it her duty to alert us to anything and everything that passed our house!.... Messano is strangely quiet.
Although she was a very successful show dog, it was not her favourite place to be, and once she gained her Kennel Club Stud Book Number she was retired. Due to a very high hip score Mopi never had puppies but always enjoyed looking in the whelping box at everyone elses.
Never happier than when everyone was here, she was Joshua's favourite, of course he is too young to understand that he won't see her again.

Lots of nice dogs and a very nice committee. Would have been more enjoyable if we hadn't got the worry of 2 day old puppies at home, but they were ably looked after by our daughter Emma, who moved in for a couple of days.
My Best of Breed was Stormerick Bobby Shafto JW and Best Puppy was Largymore Luis Espinosa For Ashiqua, who won the final 2 points for his Junior Warrant on the day. Julie also thought my Best Puppy worthy enough to award him Best Puppy In Show. Best In Show was a Weimaraner  Khamsynn Carry On Cruising To Moorpoint JW ShCM.
