Mr Gibbs out on his first shooting day.
He found it very exciting being out with both his parents & passed the test with flying colours.
Finding & flushing a cock pheasant, watching Bambi run by, closely followed by 2 hares (very interesting...)
& completed the day with 2 retrieves on duck, one of which was alive.

We had a very long day at Crufts with judging not finishing until 6.15pm....
Having collected Mr Gibb's awards for being Top Puppy in the gundog group 2015 he then won his first junior class
whilst Ziva won a strong limit class followed by the RBCC under Joy Hartley.
Since arriving from The Netherlands she has been to 8 shows
winning 7 firsts, 2 best puppy awards (one being Crufts 2015) & 5 RCC's.
Well done to all Dixon & Dexter's progeny we are proud of you all.

Many thanks Annette for asking Daniel to handle your beautiful girls:-)

Daniel & Marples with Pointer judge Mrs Joan Huxley

HPR specialist Barbara Stamp judged our breed with CC's for the first time.....
Her critique reads as follows:-

1 Hargreaves’ UK/INT SH CH/NL/VDH CH Ghyllbeck Rapax,
Fabulous well known boy. I gave him BOB last time I judged him and the remarks remain the same.
He is the epitome of a Large Munsterlander. Now at 7 years I’m sure he will continue to win CC’s well into veteran. DCC and BOB

********************************************************************************************************

What a fabulous day at Blackpool for the Ghyllbeck kennel with 3 generations showing 3 breeds who all turned out to be in
different rings at the same time, making the task of taking photos a little more challenging.....
After a consistant run of 6RCC's from her last 7 shows our beautiful import Ziva took her 1st CC with Best of Breed under Val Grant.
Nanna & Louie made their first appearance in the showring taking Best Puppy, Best junior & Best Dog under Mr Juha Kares (Finland)
