Championship show where she won Best Puppy in Show
*************************
At the last show of 2012, the Ladies Kennel Association's Championship show, Fiona won her puppy class and went on to take the Best puppy in breed award. She was then awarded the Reserve Bitch Challenge Certificate by Judge Ms Linda Moore. What a fantastic end to her puppy career. Just one year on and at the same show it was breed judge Mrs Nina Byles MBE who awarded Fiona her third Challenge Certificate along with the Best of Breed accolade which means Fiona has been crowned a Champion.


Fiona's Show Wins ( Also see the "Show news page" )


East of England Championship show July 2012 - 1st Minor Puppy Bitch ~ Judge Mr Lindsay Cutts
Judge's Critique ~ Haywood & Ridgway’s Luccombe Strawberry Dream.  Really eye-catching rich, black spots on a clear white base.  A real showgirl,  especially for one so young,
as she is not yet 7 months old. Appealing head and expression, well-off for bone and overall substance. Still naturally loose behind while on the move but
this will be corrected with just a little more maturity.  Should have a bright future.
