It isn’t that often a ringside is in agreement but yesterday around the Glen of Imaal Terrier ring at Crufts, just before the finger was pointed for Best Bitch, there was an audible sense of people feeling a new star arising. Judge Alan Small picked up the psychic surge and there it was: Bitch CC Crufts 2017 to 14 month old Wickholm Breaking Dawn handled by 12 year old Emily Sage. Then it was Best of Breed over Gleann Cotton Cody who certainly wasn’t suffering from jet lag as he had flown in the day before. The two Reserves were Jeonty Lola May of Wickholm (dam of Breaking Dawn) and Golden Spurs. Best Puppy went to Sigrid Helga at Pantcottage.
There were the overseas visitors, there were the long distance drivers, there was the excellent Bring and Share with more stuff than ever before, there were the photographers and the admirers but the day belonged to Emily and “Lola’s Girl” Breaking Dawn. We were all very proud!
Many congratulations to all the above and all the first prize winners below
