Ch Wellingley Which Way Now
CH ToMars Captain America x CH Wellingley Way To Go
Deirdre is owned and shown by Karen, she had long admired her mother Doris and on first seeing Doris as a 10 month old through Liz's window when visiting said "I'd like one like her". By luck when Karen moved to England in 2017 Liz had two puppies around the same age and both show prospects so offered Karen Deirdre to show... much to Karen's delight!
She had a successful puppy career often being piped to the post by her slightly older kennel mate Mollie (Ch Wellingley One Of The Girls)
She was awarded Best puppy in breed at Crufts 2017 and her first CC came at the very next show from the Puppy Bitch class in March 2017 at the Schnauzer Club of Great Britain under breed specialist Ronnie Tierney where she also took Best of Breed and Best Puppy in Breed. Her second soon followed at West of England Ladies Kennel Society under Tracy Searson, again with Best of Breed and her third followed straight after at Birmingham National under top allrounder Dave Killilea (again with BOB).
After gaining her title she continued her success winning a total of 27 CCs making her the second top winning Bitch in UK breed history and the top winning dog in the breed for two decades!
Not content with her success in the breed ring she won two group ones and was Reserve Best in Show at Leeds championship show 2017 as well as a champ stakes heat winner and other group placings.
Deirdre ended both 2017 and 2018 as the Top Dog in the breed and after retirement from the show ring joined Karen in several Grooming Competitions where they were awarded placings every time before having her first litter.
