CardosoComment

What an amazing weekend for Petitelion Kennels.  Friday 7th - 9th October 2016 we entered Mr Bear, Miss Scarlet and Winning Wicket into the FCI International CACIB Show and TKC Championship Show at Goldfields, Johannesburg. 

Mr Bear and Miss Scarlet were awarded excellent, Best of Breed and a CACIB on Friday at the FCI Show.  After a long hiatus Winning Wicket strutted his stuff on Saturday and performed as if he had never left the ring.  He was awarded Best of Breed and a Champion Certificate on Saturday and a CC went to Miss Scarlet.  We are so proud of them.  

After a long two days in the heat we had a cool Sunday in more ways than one;  Mr Bear came to the fore and was awarded Best of Breed and his CC.  

A big thank you goes out to the Australian judges, Mrs Liz Hindley, Mrs Ulla Greenwood and Mr Robert Lucas.

    What an amazing month PetiteLion Kennels had when we went to the Sasolburg Kennel & Century Terrier Club Championships!!

    It was bitterly cold in the early morning when we arrived in the Free State, but thankfully it warmed up to be a very pleasant day for all. Firstly, we have to thank our judges Capt. RJ Du Plooy, Mrs JM Heneke and Mr Peter Nancarrow who - with great patience and fortitude - judged our dogs. We learnt so much from the judges; they really just want to help you get the best out of your dogs, so their advice is really appreciated.    

    We also want to thank Marozelle Botha who so gracefully put Winning Wicket through his paces in the Junior Handler ring and came a hard-earned third.  It's never easy walking a dog you only get to see every couple of months.  Thank you!! So without further ado, here are the results (drumroll please):

    -

    PetiteLion Kennels decided to end off with a bang and we entered our dogs into the FCI & TKC weekend at Goldfields in Johannesburg.  What a load of fun (and drama) we had. We had International judges, Leyda Perez of Columbia, Pauline Suhr from Australia and we had Marion Gregg, Roy Gregg and Eddie Patterson from one of our favourite places in the world - Ireland.  And of course our ownInternational All Breeds Dog judge Patricia de Coning of Sunny South Africa who so freely advised & assisted all of us around the toy ring - Thank you.   

    It was such an honour to be judged by such experienced and friendly judges.  They made our three day stay enjoyable and all worth the while.

      What we enjoyed the most was the interaction with the judges over the whole weekend.  The judges critiqued our dogs and were willing tochat to you afterwards as to how to improve on your dogs or the handler's ring behaviour.  This is something that we found extremely informative.  We met lovely dog owners that travelled from Durban to compete in the Toy group, congratulations on their wins and we hope to see you again!! We look forward to the next show! 

      August Championships!

      On the weekend of the 1st to the 2nd of August we went to Kwazulu Natal and entered the Zululand Kennel Club and KwaZulu Natal Junior Kennels Club Championships Show respectively. We want to thank our international judges, Mr Mike Leonard, Mr Kerry Lee and Mr Rajiv Shandily for recognising our dogs' potential.  

      Miss Marozelle Botha with Zentu Winning Wicket of Petitelion Kennels and Miss Liza Marie Botha placed 3rd and 4th in child handler.  Well done Marozelle and Liza Marie!

      Blade Hunter of Petitelion the American Staffordshire Terrier received two CC's and then went on to win Reserved Best of Breed.  Durban was a good starting block for our kennel. 

      Goldfields Championships

      Our next championship took place at the Goldfields Kennel Club, their 97th Annual Championship Show 2014 held on the 4 August 2014.  

      Blade Hunter went on to win: 
      1st Junior Dog & CC
      1st Junior Amstaff
      1st Junior Terrior Group
      & Best of Breed

      Thank you to our Judge Mrs. Carol Larkin for recognising Blade Hunter's potential. Mrs Larkin has many years judging experience locally & abroad. She is best known for her Terrier speciality, particularly Bull Terriers and is very active at club and provincial council level.  

      Wicket went on to win a rosette for reserve CC.  This means he as the potential to be a champion.
