Oscar was Mr Purple from the M litter and all along I wanted to keep Miss Purple (Mimi) and Mr Purple, however on looking at photos nobody else seemed to like Mr Purple so doubt crept in to my mind that I had made the wrong decision. When Ina and Gail came to collect and choose their puppy I had already decided that I would listen to other people and not keep Mr Purple and then Ina and Gail came and fell in love with him, I carried Oscar out to the car for them I was swallowing the words back “no you can't have him you will need to take one of the others”. Anyway, off Oscar toddled to his new home in Galashiels where he is utterly spoilt rotten by Ina. Thankfully someone spotted Oscar and had said to his owners that really this young pup should be at shows, so his owners got back in touch and Oscar came up for a trim. The photo below of Oscar sitting with Erin and his Mum Freya is from that day. So Oscar was then duly entered in his first show a local one down in Selkirk and my Mum handled him in the ring he was by this time 9 months old and had not had any show training, my Mum sweated absolute buckets in the ring and I think came out saying never again! He was 3rd out of 3 (although to be fair only beaten by his sister Mimi and his brother Brodie) It was then agreed for his next show the Golden Retriever Club of Scotland that I would have a bash at showing this big daft pup and Oscar went in and won all his classes and Best Puppy Dog and then Gail handled him on to compete against Mimi and he was awarded Best Puppy in Show! To say that Oscar was not an easy puppy to show would be an understatement Gail, Ina and my Mum all had shots of him but in the end it was settled that I would be taking charge of this big “muckle eejit”. So now Oscar is co-owned with myself and Ina, he is very much Ina's boy and he absolutely adores his Mummy but I now get the pleasure of showing the Mr Purple I had always wanted.

Oscar has a wonderful friendly temperament, he gets on very well with all my dogs when he comes to stay for shows or to visit lady friends! He lives with Ina and her husband John in Galashiels where he enjoys his walks up the golf course and the odd visit to the pub, he then goes to visit Ina's daughter Gail and her children and the menagerie of chickens, rabbits and guinea pigs. They all can wander around and Oscar never touches them in fact he is a bit scared of the chickens as they peck him and steal his dinner!

On the 10th March 2011 our dreams came true when to our total surprise Oscar won the Dog CC, BOB and Gundog Group 4 at CRUFTS 2011. We are all sooooo proud of him and still in total shock that it has happened.

The following week Oscar attended the Joint Clubs Championship Show hosted by Eastern Counties GRC and from judge Mrs Sue Russell (Rosinate/Rosselle) he was awarded the Dog CC he then competed against the bitch CC winner and she was declared Best in Show with Oscar Reserve Best in Show. He didn't mind one bit as the CC winner was his sister Mimi! It was an amazing day we are so proud of both of them.

At LKA Championship Show at the NEC in December Oscar won his 3rd CC to make him now a Show Champion another special day as his litter brother Brodie (Linirgor Macalpine ShCM) won the RCC.

In July 2013 enthusiasts from all over the world gathered at Cirencester for the Golden Retriever Club's centenary weekend, it was a magical weekend with beautiful dogs from all over Europe competing at the two shows. The grand finale of the weekend was the Centenary show with 600 plus Golden Retrievers entered it was a great thrill to be part of this historic occasion.....I feel so very proud and honoured that Oscar was chosen as overall BEST IN SHOW! I never even dreamt that a Linirgor would achieve this. Thank you so very much to the judges Dr Ruth Barbour and Mr John Tiranti for making this possible and to my fellow exhibitors for your congratulations.

Not only is Oscar doing well in the ring himself but so are his progeny with several JW winners and his daughter Aimee has a RCC.

CRITIQUES

“My star of the day. Beautiful boy, most lovely head, so well balanced to go over, excellent length of neck, shoulders and upper arm, well muscled hindquarters, in wonderful coat and condition, powerful true mover which really showed when he had the big green carpet to himself. Did not put a food wrong and was so well handled. CC, BOB & 4th in the Group. Well Done” Crufts 2011 Mrs P Tuck (Tamsbrook)

“pale coated quality dog, lovely outline, typical head, melting expression, kind dark eye, good reach of neck, correct shoulder angulation, good bone, tight feet, deepin in chest, level topline, correct tailset, well turned stifles, short coupled, moved with drive covering the ground with ease, well handled. RCC” Graham Scott (Gunmarsh)

"fabulous young dog, lovely overall balance and excellent neck and shoulders, exquisite head with melting expression, when settled has a striking outline, presented in well groomed pale coat, a top drawer specimen of our breed, he flew round the ring with style and purpose really covering the ground. RCC" George Hennessy (Ritzilyn)

"What a super boy. Nice head, long clean reachy neck into the best laid shoulders, matching length of upper arm. Good quarters, moved well. He has such attitude I would defy any judge not to notice him. Nicely presented and handled. Close up to the CC winner just needs a little more maturity of loin and he will be there. Definitely one for the upper house. RCC" Lynne Hennessy (Ritzilyn)

"in top form, his excellent body shape filled my eye completely, looked the real deal for one so young, well proportioned masculine head without coarseness, good dark points, excellent lay back of shoulder & upper arm assembly, strong reachy neck, strong level topline, well sprung ribs, strong well developed hindquarters, good feet and pasterns, moved at one with his handler, put down to perfection. When it came to rewarding him with the RCC I considered he won this on shoulder placement and overall balance" Jim Richardson (Darrochonna)

"caught my eye immediately I saw him as he has so much quality & such a lovely balanced outline, masculine head with darkest pigment, straight front with plenty of bone & neat feet, good reach of neck & front angulation, strong level topline, good driving movement covering the ground well with ease from strong quarters, immaculately presented, in beautiful thick cream coat. RCC" Barbara Gell (Leithfield)

"What a lovely young dog. So balanced and full of quality. He excels in bone, body and substance. Lovely head, good forehand with good depth of chest and well sprung ribs. Short, strong couplings and powerful hindquarters. He was a joy to see both standing and moving" Margaret Woods (Amirene) - Crufts critique

"my star of the day, what a lovely dog, beautifully presented in superb hard muscular condition, gorgeous head & expressive eye, deep body, strong neck, straight front, good layback of shoulders, short strong rear pasterns, good second thigh moved with drive & style to take this class and BIS" Wilma Gibson (Gemmarique)

"very good blonde with classic head & expression with soft dark eye, excellent bone & feet, well put together & finished off with full double coat which was beautifully presented" Heather Morrss (Xanthos)

"Pale boy of substance who caught my eye as he entered the ring, maturing very well, not a thing to dislike about him, good reach of neck which flows into well leaid shoulders, level topline held on the move, well muscled, sound rear construction. Drove around the ring" David Arrondelle (Muirbeck)

"quality puppy in lovely cream coat, good length of neck, well angulated shoulders, good width of thigh, strong short hocks, correct tail carriage" Joan Maddison (Jaymardy)
