WTCI would like to wish the very best of luck and enjoyment to one of it's members, Liam O'Brien and his dog Mojo Star of Nulikim for their forthcoming trip to Crufts 2011. Liam & Mojo qualified last August at the Fingal Agility Show to represent Ireland at the International Agility event at this years Crufts Dog Show.
Liam would like to express his sincerest gratitude to the committee & fellow members of the Working Trials Club of Ireland for their generous donation. He says " I am delighted to be representing Ireland at Crufts this year with Mojo & now thanks to your donation I don't have to worry about the finances & I can concentrate on our training. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have wished me well."
Crufts Dog Show takes place 10-13th March 2011
Hopefully everyone got home safe and sound if not mud free, after yesterdays show in Tymon. The weather worked against us again at this show. Agility in particular was not as easy as it can be but as competitors in Ireland we are no strangers to weather related changes on the day . Well done to Kirsty Jess our Agility Judge for the day. She had a tough job adjusting and building courses to challenge us but always with our personal & canine safety in mind. Well done to all competitors whether you brought home no rosettes or a handful. Many of our class members were competing for the first time and they all did very well - it is a huge stepping stone to compete and you all did very well.
