Bella showed in two shows at the Portland Expo Center (see previous blog entry). She did very well considering that she had just turned 1 years old one day before her first showing on Friday. She was the youngest in her group which made it difficult for her to win due to her immaturity. However, this is not to say that we are disappointed in how she did. She showed BEAUTIFULLY!!! She gaited with pride and confidence and she was stacking a lot better than she had in the past.

Bella got 3rd in Sweeps and 4th in 12-18 month Junior puppy class on Friday. She got 4th on Saturday in the 12-18 month Junior puppy class as well.

All in all, we are very happy with her performance. She is doing well based on her age. I think as she gets older and matures she is going to be a contender for the other English Springers.

So watch out Junior puppy springers….Bella is on her way to becoming the future champion! 🙂
