Success for David and Daisy at Inaugural Event

18th July, 2017

Following on from their recent win at the Scottish Game Fair, David and Buccleuch Xena, “Daisy” took part in the first ever Open Walked-Up Test for 30 A/V Retrievers organised by the North of Scotland Gundog Association on Sunday the 16th of July. The event was held at Glendye Estate by kind permission of Mr Charles Gladstone with Head Keeper Murdo MacLeod. Judges were Les Maclean, Ally Kennedy, Janice Cunningham and Barry McDowell with Chief Steward Graham Slater.

Thanks to all involved, excellent organisation combined with good weather gave a fabulous atmosphere resulting in a first class event and we are delighted to say that David and Daisy “Buccleuch Xena” enjoyed good luck and were announced as the first ever winners of the new trophy.
