Although Mason was never bought as a show dog he proved that he could win or be placed, at both Open and Championship Shows.
My thanks to Debra May for letting us have such smashing, loverable and very noisy dog who always gives his best when working and does not know when to give up. Very much dads boy and often goes out for the day just for a ride with dad.

Mason qualified his first W.Dex at Wessex Working Trials under judge Bill Hardaway. He has also two T.D. opens requiring only one W.Dex to work in ticket. Mason has just got his second W.Dex at Surrey under judge Richard Cornwall.
This qualification was the last he needed to go into T.Dex (Ticket)
At Enfeild Championship Trial, he gained T.D. only just missing T.Dex by 2 points this his first time in ticket. John and I are over the moon with him. What a cracking dog.
Mason has been retired from trials at the age of nearly 8 years old, still sound and still enjoying the odd veteran tracking stake.
He has also won
Blue Eye Trophy 2004
Best Dual Purpose Dog of the Year(ASCUK 2003)

Best U.D. Dog of the Year (ASCUK 2004)

Moortime Trophy (ASCUK 2005)
Best T.D Dog of the Year
