The hottest day of the year, so far (I know, another one), and we were back at the Three Counties Showground for the Three Counties Championship Show.
Despite the heat and the lateness of the hour, Lily acquitted herself well and we left with First Post Graduate Bitch and Best Bitch courtesy of Mr Ken Andrews
Once again proving that the Universe loves Podengos, the hottest day of the year, so far, saw us in Bath for the Championship Show and the PPCoGB Open Show.
Thanks to everyone for making it a great day.

An extremely successful year in the show ring for Lily, relatively lightly shown through the year, she still managed to take home one Best in Show and three Best of Breeds.
On Saturday the 14th May, 2022 at the NPPA show, Lily was awarded Best in Show by Vitor Veiga (the man who literally wrote the book!), his closing remark - "bitch with excellent quality and faultless in action". Lily was 11 months old.
On Friday the 10th of June at Three Counties, Martin Sanders made Lily his Best of Breed, placing her over the Crufts 2022 Best of Breed - "This exhibit caught my eye on entering the ring. Has so much to admire all through"
On Monday the 15th of August at Bournemouth, Sue Ergis made Lily her Best of Breed from what, admittedly, was a small entry, but you can only compete against what turns up.
On Saturday the 10th of September at Richmond, Leila Karkas awarded Lily Best of Breed - "Excellent proportions, smooth bitch with excellent shape of head, good expression & ears. Good body, neck, topline & angulations. Moves very well. BOB"
Let's see what 2023 holds in store, we would hope to get Lily mated later in the year, but until then we will be out and about at a few more shows than last year meeting up with friends old and new - see you in the ring...
Watching 'This Farming Life', career change to Sheepdog maybe?
