1958

My first ever entered show was Crufts Dog Show in 1958. Bobby (Light Cavalry of Ladypark) was unplaced in a very large Puppy Dog Class. The judge was a very famous all-rounder Mr L C Wilson. But Sandy(Birchboughs Baron pictured) did get placed in a Class. The next show for Bobby was the East Anglian Collie Association Sanction Show. The judge was Mr P Dell. Bobby won a Reserve prize. I was over the moon about that and fixed the card over my bed. This was actually the second show that this society ever held. Now Miranda is the secretary of the Society. We had to wait until May for Bobby’s first Best of Breed. This was at the East of England Ladies Kennel Society. The judge was the very famous Joe Braddon. We had no more significant wins during this year.
