Max won his third and fourth Green Stars at Bray and District Champ Show under judge Jo Glynn (Westlow) and repeated the performance on the following day under judge Mr B Sorenson at the Irish Ladies Kennel Association.

Max won his second Green Star with Best of Breed at the Munster Championship Show on the 5th June.  In Gundog Group 8 he was then awarded Group 2 by judge Mrs C Muldoon.  We are so grateful to the judges for a great day for our boy.  The dog that beat Max in the Group went on to get BIS is a top winning American Cocker Spaniel who won the Gundog group at Crufts in 2008. 
The next day at the Cork show Max again did well this time taking the Reserve Dog Green Star behind his uncle Charlie (Weisford Charlie's Chocolate Factory) that is Charlie's twelfth Green Star!





We were thrilled for Katherina Savage when last November she made up her Caoimhe son, Charlie , into an Irish Show Champion an event made all the more exciting as we were there when she won her seventh Green Star at the Bull Breeds Champ Show in Dublin.  We were doubly delighted when at the Fermoy International Show this May she again took the dog Green Star and with it her fourth CACIB under FCI regulations.  This entitles Charlie to be known as:

Congratulations to Katherina and to all at the Weisford kennel.

Taking the opportunity of doing two shows on successive days saw us take Max to the UGRC show in Belfast.  The show was the first UK show we had entered in ten years and we were so impressed with the show's organisation.  The judge Everett Massey (Seamourne) placed Max first in a high quality Junior class.  This win qualified Max for Crufts 2011.  The following day Max again won the Junior class at the Banbridge show under judge Doreen McGugan (Invergoil) a good week-end showing.

We had campaigned Max to compete for the Irish Junior Champion title, to achieve this he needed to win five first places in Junior class all with an excellent judges grading.  He did this in style at the Combined Championship show under Frank Kane he can now be known as Riverdance Dot Matrix Jun Ch
