DFS CRUFTS 2010
Elisa and I are now back home safe and sound after our trip to DFS Crufts 2010.
It was wonderful to meet so many friends from around the world and spend time talking Papillons.
Each year we are at Crufts it is clear that it is truly becoming an International meeting place for Papillon lovers around the world.
This year we travelled with two dogs entered at Crufts from our kennel. We were also excited at the prospect of seeing a little girl bred by our kennel showing at Crufts and now owned and residing with the Gleniren / Sunshoo Showteam under their addition new affix Suniren.
First to enter the ring was our stylish world traveller AM CH CAN CH FIN CH Multiple Group Winner Siljans Tri Connection "Mickey" showing for the very first time in the UK.
After having continual success in the USA, Canada,Finland and Belgium he charmed the judge Mrs Ayris and we were thrilled that he was awarded the RDCC against many well known dogs.
We then went in the Open bitch class with Sweetie, CH BISS Siljans Oh La La.Who was awarded a very creditable RES placement in such a large class.
BCC and BOS went to pretty "Ricky" daughter 'GETUPANDGO DE COSTALINA SUNIREN'.
This very pretty and sound bitch Babybelle was expertly handled in the ring by one his owners Glenn Robb of the Gleniren / Sunshoo showteam.
To be the breeder of the Crufts BCC was a dream come true and we are extremely proud.
So a very successful day for all three dogs.
The Costalina team is delighted with our reputation for winning at Crufts.
Over the years we are pleased to have been awarded in 2006 BOB Papillon with Toy Grp 4, 2007 taking BOB and BOS. Needless to say 2009 was a truly memorable year taking BOB and going on to win Toy Grp 1.
Costalina we like to think has helped play a part in the Papillon history pages for Crufts
We are so looking forward to see you all again in at the NEC next year .
