Today is Emily’s first birthday, and she celebrated it in style by winning the Puppy Group at South Wales Kennel Association.
There were six other lovely group winners in the final, and BPIS went to a stunning Australian Shepherd, but Emily was by no means disgraced, and gave Cesky Terriers some excellent publicity. What made the win even more memorable was that there was also a special award for the winner of the Terrier Group given by Ann Cadogan in memory of her late husband, Bryn. The last time that Bryn judged my dogs he gave RBIS to Emily’s grandmother, Gloria Kvitko, so I hope that he would have approved of judge Frank Wildman’s choice of Emily to win on this occasion.
