Fendrove For Sure "Bertie"
(C. Chances are for Christiol JW Shcm X C. Black Diamond for Fendrove JW)
Bertie won Best Puppy in Breed at his very first open show - Lincoln Canine Society show 16/12/2006 under breed specialist Chris Pritchard (Powerscourt) and enjoyed his first year in the ring. We had some good days out and some good placings too before Bertie was ready to hang up his show lead and retire.
He then went to live with a lovely couple, their greyhound Peggy and two cats. Liz contacted me after losing their old dog and asked if I had an older boy available. Well, Liz and Noel are such nice people and had such a good home to offer that I knew Bertie would be very happy there. He settled in immediately and is enjoying all the love and attention he gets from his new family. He and Peggy were the best of friends and after Peggy's death a new playmate was found, another Greyhound this time a male called Tonto. They were soon the best of pals and for years now Bertie comes back regularly to visit whenever he needs a hair cut!
