Three of her sisters were placed 2nd, 3rd and fourth in this very good class of youngsters.
Her last puppy class and a great way to end her puppy career

Oh no, here comes Mum with that flaming camera again, can't go for a walk in the garden in peace. Must try and find some place to hide.
Amy came to me from the very well known kennel of Mrs. Joyce Webb of the Shannonlee prefix, I had only gone to have a look at the litter, and had no intention of having one, but she was set up in show pose for me and that was it, I just had to have her. After a slow start in the show ring she just took off, at the age of twelve and half months she took her first Reserve Challenge Certificate under Breed Judge Mr. Brian Greaves at The National Gundog Association Championship Show, it was her first Junior class and what a fine start for this super young lady.
