Wallingford, Saturday 18th April 2015
What a great time we had at the Wallingford heat. The very first, ever, heat of the Cup. It was great to see so many dogs enjoying jumping 550mm, with many breeds and grades represented. There was a very happy atmosphere, although the competition was fierce – and there were some truly awesome performances. Thank you to Judge Hilary Bowden for setting a challenging but enjoyable course. Congratulations to the qualifiers Sarah Young, David Elliott, Jenny Kimber, Lee Windeatt, Jill Lowe and Janice Short.
