Monique Anthony writes news of the fabulous (nearly 14 years old) Oliver:- Oliver had fun today at a Barn Hunt trial in Portland, CT. He was in the Senior class and had 3½ minutes to locate 4 tubes containing live rats hiddenin hay bales. With bales piled 3 levels high, 3 dirty litter tubes (without rats) to trick up the dogs, and many hiding locations, it was a very challenging course. He had already qualified twice in this class at trials a month ago. He ran round finding rat after rat after rat and qualified for the 3rd time earning his Senior Barn Hunt Title. There is a possibility he is only the 2nd dog in the country to earn the RATS title but that hasn’t been confirmed yet.
Congratulations to everybody!

Best Dog there was Amhard Freebooter with Romainville Ellie taking Best Puppy. In Finland Gleann Queen Size Girl got her last CAC to become a Finnish Champion. Best of Breed at that show was Mudmax Muddy Waters. Sweden saw a very successful weekend for the MacNally Kennel woth Mac Nally Donelee taking Best of Breed one day and Mac Nally Dougal and MacNally Deidre both getting their Swedish Championships.
America saw the big Montgomery Cluster weekend that this year was made even more special by the inclusion of Morris & Essex. This show is only held every 5 years and is a throw back to the days of “proper”. Hats are worn and outfits are encouraged. There are exhibitions of memorablilia and it is considered a show so very worth a visit. Already it is possible to do so online. It was a superb weekend for Ch Coleraines Mandalay Royalty as she took Best of Breed at three out of the four shows and was Best Opposite Sex at Montgomery. At Montgomery Ch Rainbow Springs Dermot showed how some Glens just get better and better as he took Best of Breed at 10 years of age (after taking BOS at Morris and Essex and Hatboro). At Devon Ch Daulton’s Hunter Green was Best Opposite. There were new Champions and Grand Champions made and the whole weekend took place in very dog showing suitable weather to boot.
