To my mind, those Cardigan puppies who are of the best type spend the first 12 months or so trying to get their bodies together & gaining control of
their legs; they are not neat, put together dogs as youngsters.
They spent some time in 2005 getting to know the show ring, managing to win a class in group each & earning some points towards their titles.
In 2006, all being well they will be seen around some of the show circuits.
Both Annie & Marty are tested clear
of PRA, therefore this litter is clear.

|May, 2006 (18 mths old) - my faith in these 2 puppies has been justified; a little more maturity is all that is now needed.
Who would’ve believed it!!? I gained my title before my uppity brother; and I won a
Class in Group or two as well.
On a lovely day at Canowindra Agricultural Show I happily said hello to the nice judge,
Mrs Arthur, and was given my challenge; that gave me those last few points. When it
came to the BOB bit I found a lady I had never seen before on the end of my lead. Her
name is Leslie; she owns those little hairy dogs - ummm Shelties, I believe.
Anyway, I put my head up, my tail down, my best smile on & just zoomed around that
ring, Mrs Arthur gave me Best of Breed. Jude was not impressed!!
I missed out in the group, but I think it was one of those hairy Shelties who beat me, so I
guess that is OK - they are rather nice.
The next weekend, the same nice Sheltie lady showed me for BOB. I put my tail up, my
nose down & gave that ring a good vacuuming.
After all I am entitled, I am now a CH!!
Gave the judge and all those watching a good laugh & put a smile back on the face of
brother dear; he got Best of Breed.
I hope Pam still takes me to shows. It is much more fun than staying at home with the old
girl & my crabby mother.

- Jude is now Ch Cwrt y Ci Dark Ofthe Moon.
Last weekend he went Best of Breed & Runner
to Best in Working Group to leave him 1 point
short of his title. Today, a very hot, humid &
uncomfortable day, he again won the Dog CC to
give him that final elusive point.

a family (2 legs) of his own

kids of her own
