Thought I'd share this little video - taken on my friend's i-phone (thanks Andrea!) - of my daughter, Niamh, in her first ever junior handler's class.  Not even 2 years old!


The bitch she is showing is of course my lovely Aneira (Jingles x Molly), and judge is Michelle Briggs.


I was so proud of her, and we had such great fun!  Thank you, too, to Michelle for being so patient with my little one.  She is normally extremely shy around anyone new, so I was half expecting her to cry or run away lol but she did great!  She now expects to go into the ring at every show, whether there's a class for her, or not.


She was the only one in her age class (under 7s), so she won a lovely blue ribbon.  First of many to come, I hope!!

Niamh's comment about the whole occasion was this:

'Neira's a bit pully."

Very, very cute and clearly a champion in the making!  I haven't been online for a while but this caught my attention.  Not only do we share a love of IS but my daughter (age 6) is also called Niamh, obviously we have great taste, lol.

Hey Melinda, I missed this one.  Great to see another child handler in the making!  Aniera was so lovely and gentle!  cheers, Cheryl
