Ellie's older son Winston finally gains his second major, in great style by beating the Crufts 2009 BOB among many other lovely dogs, and becomes
 AKC Ch Luphenex Land A Victory RN!

George enjoys a gallop in the woods near West Harling Heath on the Suffolk/Norfolk border

Enjoying the sunshine - almost too much, in Hetty's case!

And Hetty doing her bonus recall exercise

Lucy and Ellie, proudly showing off their rosette - Ellie has just become the first Cavalier in the UK to gain a Rally Championship!

George, Ellie and Hetty at the end of the Peddars Way, where it meets the Norfolk Coast Path. Stephen started that walk with George, Ellie and Henry. What Hetty lacks in show potential compared to our departed Henry, she attempts to make up for with character.
