Home / Friends / From England 2006

Mr. &Mrs. Gus and Lesley of Stargus (England) visited Japan from Nov.11th to 20th. Lesley judged our Airedales at the two championship shows during their stay. It was a great honour for us to have her as a judge.
Unfortunately the weather was not good on both days, windy and cold. However she gave a gentle judge and some comments to all entries. I am sure everybody was deeply impressed by her judge.
Diane got Reserve Best in Show and Tenko got Best Puppy in Show at Tokyo championship show on Nov.19th. We are so happy and would like to express our gratitude.

They stayed at our house for three days. We saw the sights of Nogoya, Nagoya castle, Tokugawa museum and Noritake museum.
And we went to Japanese pub with our club members at night and they tried to eat various Japanese foods. Next day, we went sightseeing to Kiso. We enjoyed seeing fantastic scene at Kiso Nezamenotoko and strolling around Kiso Tsumago Juku which is old town.
We talked about Airedales all the time and learnt a lot from them. It was really precious time for us.
