Colkeririn's Sunlight (Kamba) and Colkeririn Indigo Lightly at Lonaza (Lana) had a fabulous day at W.E.L.K.S. 2015 on Saturday, 25th April. The sun managed to keep shining on our youngsters who both showed their way to excellent placements under Breed Specialist Liz Storey (Kiromol). Kamba won the 9-strong Limit Class and went on to win the Reserve Dog Challenge Certificate - his second RDCC in two consecutive championship shows for him (we didn't get to Hound Assoc Scotland) and Lana placed 2nd in her well stocked Limit Class, placing behind the day's BCC winner. Here's Lana standing for her judge's critique - we are so proud of her and Jane.

Kamba's show career since leaving the Junior Class has been a real thrilling journey. Still at only 21 months, this is Kamba's 4th class win and 2nd RDCC under Breed Specialists at Championship Show level (in only 8 Champ Shows we've attended - where he's placed in the cards at every show):
Gillian Mitchelson (Voortrekker) 1st PGD Hound Assoc 2014
Sue Campbell (Nyassa) 1st PGD LKA 2014
Gill Lawless (Faahac) 1st PGD and RDCC Crufts 2015
Liz Storey (Kiromol) 1st Limit and RDCC WELKS 2015.
Under 2 more Breed Specialists he's been placed 2nd:
Gill Hutcheson (Gabisa) 2nd PGD Bournemouth 2014
Charlotte Strickland (Voortrekker) 2nd PGD Richmond 2014.
We are so grateful this first class group of ladies with so much combined experience and knowledge of our breed appreciate Kamba, so much thanks for keeping us smiling on our journey! Although we can't attend every Championship Show in the year, we are looking forward to what has started out to be a really exciting 2015 for us!
