Bellas Medals

Bella's Medals

Bella had a successful day at the IABKC International Show. She was in two back to back shows on Saturday. As she was the only entered Springer Spaniel, she won her Bred by Exhibitor Class. She went on to win Best Sporting Group Puppy in of the shows. She was in the Best In Show Puppy but lost to a Old English Sheepdog.

It was a successful day because she got lots of practice for her big ESS Specialty debut on Friday. She is a little wild in her first class, but by the end of the day she was showing beautifully.

At the IABKC shows the judges give you a written report of your dog. Both judges thought that Bella was a fine example of a Springer with great angulation, deep chest, a nice top line and good planes on her head. Both judges felt she was developing into an overall wonderful springer.

Bella is entered in 12-15 Month Puppy Sweepstakes and 12-18 Month Junior Puppy Classes at the Willamette Valley English Springer Spaniel Association on Friday. And Saturday she is entered into 12-18 Month again at Portland Kennel Club.
