Jas’s first outing as a Junior.
Judge Mr J W Hartley
Crufts 2013 will go down as one of the best days of my life. Jas or Crumpsbrook Jasmine to give her her proper name was amazing. Her first time at Crufts and she behaved impeccably. It is a long and exhausting day by the end of which she was shattered, bless her, but she shone in the ring when it mattered. As regular readers of my blog will know she has grown rather erratically which meant her show results have been mixed, but what a time to get it right.
I really did not expect anything from the day apart from the usual fun of going to Crufts, how wrong was I ! Jas was awarded first in her puppy bitch class. I have never been as nervous as I was this day. Perhaps it was because so many existing and future Crumpsbrook Munster owners were there routing for us. This made the occasion unbelievably special, to be able to share it with you all was such a highlight.
After winning her bitch puppy class she then had to pull out the stops again to compete against the winner of the male puppy class. This class was right at the end of the day. She was able to relax and sleep, which is unbelievable in that atmosphere, and my friend Marcelle had brushed her to go in her first class so we kept the winning formula. Pete, pictured having a Munster hug off Jas woke her up then Marce titivated her coat and in we went.
She loved the moment and showed her socks off , what a star. Mrs Sommerfield, the judge, decided Jas was the Best Puppy in Breed. WOW.
A special thank-you must go to Carol Saunders without whose Tanzenbach blood lines Jas would not be so special.
GO CRUMPSBROOK !
