2014 so far….

Hi everyone, it seems I have been neglecting the site for a while!!! I have a Gemswin Flat Coats and Border Terriers facebook page and most of my posts tend to go there!! Check it out!
Anyway…what a tremendous year
January saw the arrival of our liver litter Gideon X Halle, 6 wonderful babies who have all gone to smashing homes, we have kept Joss here ( Gemswin Disco Inferno) who is a sweetheart, her father Gideon gained his Show Working Gundog Certificate and his Junior Warrant which qualifies him for Crufts for life!!!
March saw an excellent Crufts for the combined Gemswin/Broomsward team, Finn gained a 2nd in Junior, Hugo a 4th in a huge open class and Gideon thrilled us by winning the working class.
April saw Ida ( Hugo’s daughter) Rainesgift Bide Your Time win Best Puppy In Show at both the Flat Coat Society and the Scottish Flat Coat Clubs championship shows
On May the 3rd we very sadly lost our wonderful Lily, our little scruffy black terrier, rescued from Wales we think she was about 18 years old, we miss her terribly, she was such a sweet character
In June I had the pleasure of judging Flat Coats in Norway, some fabulous dogs and wonderful hospitality
July saw the showing season hotting up and Neve, Neville, Finn & Evie gained their Crufts qualifiers, at Leeds show Hugos son Samson ( Rainesgift Time To Pretend) won the reserve CC
Baby Joss entered her first few shows with 1sts at Leeds, Paignton and Best Puppies at two open shows locally
As August draws to a close we can reflect on a damn good year so far!!!
