We braved the filthy weather conditions last weekend for WELKS champ show in Malvern, and were rewarded with an extremely small Veteran Bitch class, where Ellie came 2nd and qualified for Crufts 2013!! OK, it was a very small class, but the judge could have chosen to withold. His write up said she was a size bigger than the class winner but still undeniably female, and was good to go over on the table, but didn't like the floor surface (quite a few dogs didn't). So not a bad write up. In the Good Citizen class there were 2 bitches and the other one wouldn't move at all, so she won that class. Here's a nice picture of her showing off her posh championship show rosettes!

You have to get 1st, 2nd or 3rd in various classes at a Championship dog show. Which classes are qualifying classes differs (or used to, not sure if it's changed) depending on what band your breed is in, so more numerous breeds have more awards that can qualify you. Of course she won't get anything at Crufts, she's a nice girl but not the top quality required for that, but we will be proud to be competing there anyway. And yes, I show her myself, nearly all dogs are owner handled over here, it's much more fun! :th-up
