Windsor is one of my favourite dog shows with the venue at Home Park sitting beneath the gaze of Windsor Castle.
It is surely one of the finest places in the country to hold a show and with the Union Jack flying at full mast above
the Castle one can only think the Queen was looking down on the proceedings at some point. The weather was glorious, fine and sunny but with enough breeze not to be too overpowering for the dogs.
We picked up some fabulous awards
in the breed classes and I finished the day with the proud job of handing Bannonbrig Al Fresco in the Group for Julie Carruthers who still isn't back to running form just yet. It was an absolute pleasure and we were all thrilled to see Basil make the shortlist
of ten dogs for the final four top honours in the Gundog Group being judged by Carole Coode of the famous Warringah Labradors.
The journey home was not quite so enjoyable with major disruption due to the closure of the M40
so after a quick stop off to grab some pizza it was back to the snail trail of traffic and eventually home after 1am the next morning. Good job we were in good spirit it's after such a super day out!
