A Wildflower at the Swansea 2012 Open show showered the competition with seed in the Graduate class and then taking the Best in Breed title for the show in Pembroke Welsh Corgi. In all twelve corgis were booked for the two classes including dogs which have had plenty off success.


Wildflower alias Milkywey’s Wildflower at Balletcor went on to take her first and the kennels senior Pastoral group 1.


Porscha, as she is known flew in from Mary Marshall’s kennel in Michigan in November and has settled down to a life in the UK.

In the same Graduate class our Balletcor Gabriel Goch who was second to Porscha took the puppy title Best Puppy in Breed and was then third in pastoral puppy group.


In all the kennel took 9 rosettes at the show.

I checked AKC and for some reason it shows nothing. All it lists is who is judging what breed, but there are no past entry breakdowns listed.

i think most of past results are at akc for roy jones. what shows???

Does anyone know where I can find entry numbers from a previous show other than the AKC? For some reason this show I am looking up doesn't have it's last year entry numbers up (but I know they had a show last year--a friend of mine went to it). The super is Roy Jones, but all I can find is there is the normal premium list.

very interesting. i also like the different class divisions. we have 6-9, 9-12 and 12-18 months. followed by novice, american bred, bred-by-exhibitor and then open. the novice class is for dogs that haven't won a blue ribbon. years ago, there was actually an AKC judge showing in the novice class. i could not believe it. oops- almost forgot, they also have an ameteur-owner handled class. i love it when you can go thru all the puppy classes. and i use to use the american bred class for dogs that were older than 18 months but not quite mature enough for open. a lot of people don't like that class but i did a lot of winning form it. i imagine that your post graduate class would be the same as our american bred. now, what is your limited class requirements?

I have not had those judges before either.  I just got the premium in the mail for the show. 

I will be great to see your boy out there soon!
