Impala Chase the Sun to Vardenais
gained her third CC at Blackpool

AT BLACKPOOL, under judge Dick Terry, the first tailed Miniature Pinscher Champion since the docking ban came into effect was made up.

Impala Chase the Sun to Vardenais, owned by Aileen Coull, gained her third CC after being awarded her first CC & BOB as a Junior last year at Richmond under Caroline Roe and her second (with BOB) from Peter Jolley at Manchester this year. Beth also has a RCC, awarded at South Wales in 2008 by Bob Hernandez. She was bred by Sue Burns and is by Ch Impala Johnny Angel JW ShCM (last year’s Top Sire) ex Ch Hawksflight in the Pink at Impala, Top Min Pin 2003.
Her litter brother, Impala Always the Sun, was the first tailed Min Pin to be awarded a CC since the docking ban came into effect and her litter sister Impala Follow the Sun to Hillspan has a RCC. She is not, however, the first tailed Min Pin to become a Champion - this honour went to Donald and Heather Smith's Ch Marxmin Turbo Tail at Tubize in 1995.

At Windsor Championship show, Nick Connell handled the very first black Lakeland Terrier to win a CC, when he showed Miss M E Whitehead’s bitch, Stanstead Take A Chance On Me under breed judge Mrs S Holroyd. The bitch was breed by Mrs D Graham.

As far as docking tails and ears. i see nothing wrong with it.  It is just like an operation on a human, and I have two big operations, within  a few days I was ok.
I have seen a Dobe with out ears or tail being docked, ugh! 
If it was up to peta/hs/rspca, and other ar organizations, we would not be able  to own animals at all.
