Best Of Breed *** World Dog Show ***
And these are the lovely pictures of you and DIABLO
before the Main Ring !
I might say that I like your dogs, your passion, your attitude and the love
Sorry to be so long to send to you these photos but as you can understand, I
was very busy after the World Dog Show.
And during, it is why it was not possible to contact to you the next day for
a “shooting” outside with DIABLO !
I will be proud to do an article on you and your wonderful dogs to be
published in the French dog magazine “Vos Chiens” !
Perhaps, you will go to the Euro Show in Budapest mid October or at big
shows as Luxembourg in September or the
Winner in Amsterdam in November . But I will also certainly go through
Copenhague in the next few months on the way
to Finland from where my golden bitches come from. It can be an opportunity
for a stop to discover the world of “Leading Angels”
Congratulations again for all your success and all the best for the up
coming smashing litter between CHAUNCEY and JADA!
Kind regards, Frédéric
