Celebrations are in order as we are thrilled to share our news in from the Bath Championship Show 2015. Jane and Lana (Colkeririn Indigo Lightly at Lonaza) have today won the Limit Bitch Class (of 11) and gone on to win the Reserve Bitch Challenge Certificate under breed specialist Janet Parker from Rejan!
This makes a hat-trick of Stud Book Number wins this year for the 3 Indie x Bhali litter mates who have gone into the show ring - all before they are 23 months in age! We are so proud of Jane and Lana and wish we had been there to celebrate with them in person.
A Reserve Challenge Certificate carries the following wording which a judge has to sign their name to: "Having assessed the dogs and penalised any features or exaggerations which I consider detrimental to their soundness, health or welfare, I am clearly of the opinion that <<Colkeririn Indigo Lightly at Lonaza >> (Name of exhibit) owned by <<Ms Jane Hawkins, Mr John Smith and Mrs Kim Hodge>> (Name of Owner/s) is of such outstanding merit as to be worthy of being awarded the Challenge Certificate should the Challenge Certificate winner be disqualified.
Lana won the biggest attended class of the day (10 with 1 absentee) and won her RDCC from a bitch entry of 50. The overall entry was 84 Rhodesian Ridgebacks.
Congratulations to all the winners of the day!
