Sh Ch Calvdale Softly Softly JW now in his 10th year having turned 9 earlier in the year, Twist was once again competing in Veteran. It is the third consecutive year he has taken part in the Veteran Class at Crufts and it is the third consecutive year he has won it – we  call it consistency!

A huge well done to Jo and Geoff Cunliffe with Sh Ch Calvdale My Girl heading a quality line up in the Limit Bitch class.

Calvdale Swag took a 2nd in Post Graduate bitch and Calvdale Diamond Heist taking a third in  Special Junior.  

Calvdale Above Suspicion owned by Mr A & Mr A Niven was the winner in the Kennel Club Good Citizens class and also a very pleasing 3rd in the Veteran class.

Calvdale All For You owned by Clare Newlove took a VHC in Special Puppy Bitch. So once again we took part and we took placings through the classes with the various dogs that had qualified.
