Congratulations to the Wales International Gundog Retriever Team at The Game Fair

Congratulations the Wales International Gundog Retriever Team on their achievements at The Game Fair.

The Wales Retrievers walked away with the Northern Goldsmiths Retriever Team Trophy, which dates back to the first Game Fair International in 1978.

England were overall worthy winners with a total score of 1,090, followed closely by Ireland with a total of 1,086, Wales finished on 1,052 with Scotland on 1,003. 

Wales Captain, Alan Rees, came out as the first competitor to go over the track and established a formidable benchmark of 116 out of a maximum 120.

To add to the suspense, four dogs tied on 116, which resulted in a run off for second and third. For the first time during the competition the judges set a test using the full length of the arena for an unseen retrieve over three fences, into the woods, with no shot. Sadly, one dog failed, and the end result placed Les McLean of Scotland in second and Alan Rees in third.

Just to let you know that Mirren and Skye are both doing really well on CP21. Mirren hardly itches at all now and they both eat up every drop every mealtime. Skye's coat is looking much better as he was a wee ragamuffin when we got him, and we didn't think mirrens coat could be any shinier but it is!
