Gilly celebrated her second birthday at her first agility competition. None of our dogs were competition-ready, but it was organized by our home club, so we participated
with 5 dogs, taking it as a training. Our goal was to set a record and get 30 disqualifications during one weekend. Gilly, Ashley and Banshee broke it, they all finished
one run. Banshee even managed to finish an SA2 exam with an "excellent", on 4th place. The other doggies finished at our lucky 13th place.

German Nationals & Sommerfest PJRTCG. The show was judged by Mr. Ian Darlow (UK), he was very kindly handling the dogs and that made everyone feel comfortable
in the ring. 70 terriers were shown, all classes were strong (8-14 dogs). Our Destiny was 4th in her class, Ashley won the veteran class. I didn't want to show Gilly,
but used the opportunity and the gentle judge made it a good experience for her and she showed herself nicely. She finished second in her class and was
second best bitch of open classes (Top Noch Hayden won - congratulations!).
Cuchulann Raf, a male that I helped to import from Ireland, did very well too. We visited his owner on our way back home - they just had very promising
puppies our of our F.M. Firefly and Little Trouble Frazzle.

21-23.11.2014 - tripple show in Zagreb. After a long break we decided to go to a tripple FCI show, in Croatia. It was a very nice trip. Ashley, Destiny, Evie and
Gilly were shown. They were traditional FCI shows and we finally got a first "good" in Fox Meadow's history. A nice surprise was Gilly's double victory in the youth class,
where she beat 2-3 other bitches. So we got a Croatian Junior Champion and Crufts qualification for Gilly and a Croatian Veteran Champion for Ashley.

We spent a summer holiday in Croatia with some of our dogs. Photos are here.
Sommerfest PJRTCG & German Nationals. Judge Mr. Dessie Mackin (IRL), and our dogs did great again. Firefly, Evan Etc and Destiny won their classes, Banshee was 3rd in the same class as Destiny,

DNA testing for Spinocerebellar Ataxia of my breeding stock is finished. Fox Meadow's BANSHEE, DESTINY, EVAN ETC and Little Trouble FRAZZLE are all SCA CLEAR!

We got news from AHT: Fox Meadow's ADORABLE WITCH, BANSHEE and EVAN ETC are all "Clear/Normal" for Late Onset Ataxia! This means Fox Meadow's D- and F- Litters are Clear too, as the sires have been tested "Clear/Normal" as
well. We are very happy!
