Round up of News 2014-16

It's been a busy few years at Cloudbuster.

Riley - Renvall's Life of Riley, held his own in the show ring, winning out of Post Graduate, and several Limit class placings including 2 first prizes. He also won an additional 3 Reserve Challenge Certificates under Ken Warrington - Midland Counties, Pauline Bentley (Shanibar TT's) - South Wales and Phil Thirlwell (Myrlea TT's) - Border Union in 2014.

 

At Liverpool Kennel Association Open Show, Riley took Best of Breed and the Utility group under Ian Blackshaw  then went on to win Best In Show under Stephen Cox.

 

2014 was also a good start to a show career for our young prospect Morgan - Cloudbuster Ice n'A Slice.

Morgan qualified for Crufts on his first outing. He then took a small break from the ring to grow his coat, and came out at the Tibetan Terrier Association Championship Show under Susan Carr (Salishan TT's), winning 2 classes and being declared Best Puppy Dog.  

 

Along with Morgan, Riley also saw 2 more of his offspring qualify for Crufts on multiple occasions.

Renvall Thistle Do Nicely & his sister Renvall's Lupin For Love both qualified on their first outing, City of Birmingham, under David Wallis (Manorfields TTs).

This pair also won both the minor puppy classes at the Tibetan Terrier Breeders & Owners Club Open show under Ana Prevel (dog judge) and Jan Reynolds (bitch judge).

 

 

We were also pleased to see the arrival of Delilah - Cloudbuster Next Top Model and Riley's beautiful black daughters Candy & Bubbles.

2016.

A quiet year for us on the show front.

Riley appeared just once - at Boston Ch Show under breed specialist Steven Green, where he won the Reserve CC.

 

Back home, Gertie presented us with 7 beautiful puppies sired by Joyberna Red Hot Chilli, and their daughter Cinders - Cloudbuster Cinderella stayed to keep the other dogs on their toes!
