Another day, another show with another judge... who didn't fancy my little darling Katinka at all. A KC show in Norrköping, Sweden. Judge Linda Baldry, kennel Derryveagh, UK.

Coppers Bubblande Glad 3rd best dog and Coppers Classic Bubble 4th best bitch. Here you can see 3 Coppers in action:

Had a smashing day at ISF club show in Finspång, Sweden. Katinka (Coppers Pure Bubble) won open-2 bitches with Ck and was picked out amongst the 6 best bitches! Judging was Angela Roberts, kennel Polmennor, UK.
Here's a pic of my pride and joy:

Her relatives from kennel Copper had also smashing day! Coppers Classic Bubble was best bitch and BOS. Coppers Under My Umbrella won a strong juniorclass of 16 and went on to 4th best bitch with the ISF-Premie. Lynwood Kiss N Tell Coppers was 2nd in intermediate with Ck. And the boys wasn't bad either: Coppers Bubblande Glad was 2nd best dog, Coppers Pratbubbla won open-1 and was 4th best dog with res-premie and his brother Coppers Art of Bubbles 2nd in open-1 with Ck.
