What a challenge!
The Irish Red & White Setter Club of GB recently held its annual Challenge match in the Cedric Ford Pavilion at Newark Show Ground.
Open to Irish Red & White Setters who have achieved a Challenge Certificate or Reserve Challenge Certificate and puppies who have been placed first, second or third at a Championship show with CCs on offer, the match attracted an entry of 20 dogs.
Best in Challenge was Sh Ch Spyefire Able Seaman to Wroxham, owned by Eileen Walker and bred by Suzanne Humphries. Reserve Best in Challenge was winner of the Special Puppy class, Karen Lockwood's home bred dog Lockenna Olympic Flame. The judge was well known IR&WS breeder and exhibitor, Eleanor White (Castlefenny).
The event was well supported by Club members, enjoying the relaxed atmosphere of a social event combined with their favourite hobby - showing dogs!
Grateful thanks go to the sponsors, James Wellbeloved, Purina Proplan, Dorwest Herbs and Seven Seas and also to Martyn Ford who acted as Master of Ceremonies and kept the spectators entertained throughout the day.
