Crufts Qualified at his very first show ***
Noah (9 months old) is 3rd in the Puppy Dog class under judge Patsy Hollings(Gunalt)

as it was to be across the channel in England!!! The arrival of baby
Sebastian in October , when Noah was only 5 months old,
meant Noah never got to attend any ring craft classes like our other
puppies have done!!
Well socialized however, through town trips, visitors and the hustle & bustle of our home , Noah took to everything easily, so the long car trip, busy indoor championship show setting & the UK benching system didn’t bother him at all …… and our mission to attempt to qualify him for Crufts 2013 was accomplished on our very first try !!!
