Working Qualifiers

We now have our Buddies Yearling Stakes finalists from the Working group. Qualifiers were held at the Working and Pastoral of Wales show in Builth Wells on Saturday 21st April.

Judge Graham Hill selected Boxer, Casemates Gandalf, whose pet name is Bertie, as the winner of the Working dogs class.

Bertie is owned by Eileen Kelly and has been a consistent winner during his young career.

Joining Bertie at the final is Bernese Mountain Dog, Padicky Starr Studded Skye, whose pet name is Starr.

Starr is owned and bred by Diane Spencer and handled by Diane’s daughter Paige. Diane and Paige were delighted with Starr’s wins and told me how she had got her final point for her J.W. at the show. Starr is from their first home bred litter which makes the experience even more exciting.

Starr and Bertie will join the existing finalists from Toy, Terrier and Hound groups at the Buddies Yearling of the Year Grand Final at Thrumpton Hall in Nottinghamshire on Sunday 3rd February 2019.
