I have many people to thank who made this possible. Lindsey and Roy Maynard for allowing me to use Boris, GB CH Chinnordale Cue Card. I will be forever grateful.
To the Judges who awarded him his CC’s – Ms Mandy Macdonald; Mrs Sue Pounds Longhurst and Mrs Lynn Kipps .
To Mrs Carol Henry, Mrs Anne Falconer and Mrs Freda Morriss-Gargett for his RCC’s.
To John Savage and Anne Ennis who have supported me from the very beginning as a young child who had a passion to show her dogs and who now look after my dogs to allow me attend the shows. To Orlagh Murray who has shared in every step of Cillian’s Journey and has on occasions taken him to shows I couldn’t attend.
To Pat and Bill Wheel who entrusted me with Caoimhe, “Riverdance Spring Azalea” all those years ago, who started this line. I also have to say a huge thanks to Joanne Gerhold and Margaret who have always had a space for us and kept an eye on the dogs for us. We have really enjoyed your company. To all in the UK and Ireland who have made us so welcome and cheered us on at the shows, your support has made a difference, we have had the most wonderful time. To you all THANK YOU!
Lynn Kipps Critique:
Well, this boy had to be my ‘Bestest’. No matter when I looked at him, he still had everything in the right place. He just walked into his perfect stance. ‘Simple as that!’ A picture of balance, moderation, power and beauty. I’m not writing what the standard says he should look like ……… because he does. He and his owner never stopped smiling. This dog’s attitude is a glowing example of: “Having the desire to please his owner”. His fantastic construction powered him round the ring smoothly, elegantly, powerfully. He never put a foot wrong so for me, so he had to win this class, be my Best Dog and in agreement with my co-judge Ray Strudwick be Best of Breed. In the Group he was a great representative of our breed.
