Well done to Colin Fletcher and Demolition Dash, what a brilliant team these pair are, they just love it!' on 18th July 2009 at Knowlands Farm in Barcombe East Sussex, Colin and Dash just missed out on first place by half a point by winning 2nd in Novice at the GSPC Sussex Branch's Working Test and for those skeptics of this breeds ability in water, Dash was given 25/25 for his liquid retrieve; he was also accredited an Excellent in his Conformation and considering only four dogs from over 50 achieved the same grade, it really was a super award winning day, congratulations.
