Cassie wins 1st prize at puppy show.
September 16th, 2010

Persistence pays of in search for a puppy to die for.

Jenny Carter, who works for Whitehouse Funeral Service, eventually gave in to her daughter's wishes to have a puppy. The fear of any parent that they  would eventually be looking after the dog seems not to be the case in this relationship.

'After a lot of thought and debate we decided to let Alex (Jenny's daughter) have a puppy' said Jenny.  'We eventually decided on a Sheltie as she wanted to do a few shows and also wanted to have a dog that could be entered into dog agility classes'. The search was on for a sheltie, and after a good few months trying to find the right puppy one was found at the home of a caring lady near Bishop Auckland. 'This was great as it was local as we did expect to have to travel to find one this nice' added Jenny.

Alex took one look at the only female puppy and that was it.  Besotted!

The Sheltie was collected when she was 11 weeks old after Jenny and Alex had returned from holiday and named 'CASSIE'.

At 13 weeks Cassie was entered in her first show.  Our local village show, where she came first in the puppy class and came first again in the championship.

'So it's onward and upward to greater things for Alex and Cassie!!!!!' added Jenny. 'We are now looking for sponsorship from Whitehouse Funeral Service for crufts'.'You must be joking' said owner John!!!
