My tribute to Bonnie
Going through show results this evening, it´s become quite obvious to me that "Bonnie" - Ch. Dundee So Explosive - bred by Christina Hüttner, Sweden (Ch. So What Excalibur ex. Ch. Dundee Masquerade Flirt), owned by Gerd Elin Bøe, Norway (and groomed by myself), must be Queen of Norwegian and Swedish breed club shows for the last seven years:
2008 - Best in Show at the Norwegian club show, under breed specialist Jul Hamlot
2010 - BOS at the Swedish club show, at Västerlanda, under Helena Peterzens
2011 - Best in Show at the Swedish club show, at Alnarp, under Ann-Marie Rådström
2011 - Best in Show at the Norwegian club show, under breed specialist Cindy Pettersson
2014 - Best in Show at the Norwegian club show, under breed specialist Veli-Pekka Kumpumäki
It´s been a pleasure to groom this bonnie lass and being able to enjoy her timeless and honest type - totally without excesses, and with absolutely no nods to current fashions or trends whatsoever. I hope I´ll be able to take care of her coat, and enjoy her feisty spirit, for many years to come.
Such a thoroughly lovely bitch she is!
PS: I´m pleased she is grandmother to my A- and B-litter, and the great-grandmother to my C-litter. Bonnie has only had one litter, in 2009 (3 +1), producing the three-years-in-a-row top Scottie in Norway; Pocket´s Archie MacDonald
