Sweety, Best in Show Speciality & new Belgian Champion

How Sweet it is!
The Belgium Papillon Club held its specialty in conjunction with the show in Evergem Belgium this year.
Belgium Ch. I.B. & Monaco Ch. Siljans Ooh La La (Sweety) was sweet enough to win Best in Show.
The breed specialist judge was the distinguished Mr. Phil Shirley of the UK.
The competition entry numbers were strong with over 50 Papillons and Phalenes participating in the show.
Our little Sweety, from an Open Class entry, stepped her way thru the competition to win BOS, BOS and then Best in Show.
The critic from Mr. Shirley reads as follows:
Very pretty dainty type, sweet head, deep stop, fringed ears, very fine bone, strong ribs, well angulated, good feet, very attractive outline, moving freely, best of fronts, lovely expression.
This was Sweeties fourth CC in Belgium and with it has proven she is definitely a true Belgian Champion.
Many thanks to Mrs. Lydie Cappelmans for handling Sweety so good!

Mrs. Moreau de Vincens critique for Ricky was simple but powerful : "Superb subject, the titles speak more than words" (Superbe sujet, fair honneur à son titre).

Our heartfelt thanks to them for recognizing Ricky outstanding qualities and continuing his record winning streak.
