On Saturday 27th May our new member of the team Endeavour Morse vom Storkenbusch – “Indy” (Ch. Mallorn’s Silver Surfer x A Sense of Pleasure’s Pepsi) was entered in his first show. By coincidence the Belgian Labrador Retriever Club in Ardooie was the first opportunity where he could be shown.
Indy was entered in Baby class at 4 months and with that the youngest competitor of the day. He was shown before judge Becci Hodge, UK (Naiken) and was awarded a Very Promising 2nd Place with a nice trophy and lots of snacks and goodies.
For a 4 month old pup for the first time in the ring he did remarkably well and was barely distracted by everything going on around him. Standing still is still a challenge but that takes practice.
Judges comments were: 4 month old yellow, right for age, kind head, good pigmentation, would like a slightly better front but this will improve, good body and ribs, good hind quarters, moves very well for age, good coat.
We would like to thank Miss Hodge for her kind and encouraging comments. Needless to say we are extremely proud of the little man and we are excited to see how he develops further.
