was only lightly shown at club events prior to this.
"On our recent overseas trip she competed in 5 large open bitch classes in Austria and Italy
including the World Dog Show. She was the oldest in the class and was graded excellent each
time and placed 3 times and shortlisted in the other two classes.
"We are so proud of our lovely girl and special thanks to her handler Karen Bird.
