Hi Dave
ok spill the beans on the Gordon FT - I have my reservations about some of todays Gordons in the field. Penny Darragh's ones are ok and one or two but it seems to me they have lost the ability to cut through rough ground. They rocking horse over the top of it and wear themselves done in no time.

Your observations??

We were represented at the CLA and managed to come away with a trophy for the best stand ah well recognition where you can get it!

Thanks for the feedback on HD stand. They are all quite new to the outdoor events (I have done the Royal Highalnd Show for years) and they like a bit of encouragement.

Think you might have been talking to either Pauline (she does assessment for us) or a lady with a double barrell name ending in Lamberton who is one of our speakers)

They didnt make their volunteers pay from the Southern Society did they?
You get an allocation of passes for every stand and then we pay for the other peole we bring in. When I changed the format of our stand at RHS two years ago I had about 20 hearing dogs over the four days along with my team. We paid a discount price for the tickets but we paid for them. I would be inclined to say thanks but Iam busy. Volunteers give of their time and their energy (in your case your skills)the least they can do is pay to get you in!

Hi Evie - getting really excited now it is only 2 weeks to Jarnos big day!!! and then at Gundog Breeds the following week! Hope you are well and are going to Setter and Pointer. I am busy making a patchwork benching rug at the mo. Have been doing some roadwork and using a high stand to feed him on it seems to be doing the trick

Take Care

Hi Margaret
look forward to seeing you at setter and pointer. You can say hello to Irish CHAMPION Dalriach Infamous Grouse!
Fergal ran his qualifier in the Wicklow mountain trial yesterday and passed.

Hi there, Thanks for the invite, but I really don't have anything to show at the moment, try again after February I will be open for open shows then, the more the merrier, haven't really done that many open shows since I have been up here, but will have to start, (the two girls are now retired), so only have one to show in the future, Who is the judge????
Dee and the gang

Judge is Carol Moore Gadhelic Gordons. I am just trying to make sure she has a good entry of Reds and IRWS/ she is a good judge and she has agreed to travel from Wales for most of the gundogs and the group.
Can you pass this on

Hi - yes Margaret put up a good arguement for it - so have entered Caley (dog) as Islay (bitch) has just been spayed and i dont think she would be ready in time. However i do warn everyone i have never shown before and it could be hilarious !!!

Hi Evie - panicking a bit about it but also looking forward to seeing the other IRWS owners and dogs. We are bringing both Caley & Islay although we have only entered Caley. See you then

Will it ever be that warm again?..........See you at Crufts?

Unfortunatly no Crufts this year!
I am not a great show-person anyhow and have normally just gone when I have worked there.
Pity, I would like to meet up with some more people on this site in "real life". That would be my reason for going...have fun! :-)

Hi Ossian,
I notice that you have given Rosey some information about trainers/behaviourists in Scotland. I have a specific problem with one of our girls. Its only when she is on the lead and another dog comes towards her - she barks in its face. In a formal show or obedience setting while "working" she doesn't do it, but outside the ring or round the hall, she does. Otherwise she is a sweetie, loving and eager to please - very obedient. I live in Angus. Many thanks if you can help.

Thanks Ossian. I've been trying different solutions, unsuccessfully for about two years. Any help will be welcome.
