Results 2013.

We have had  another fantastic year in the showring this year and even though we missed quite a few shows Twitch will finish the year as Top Bitch 2013.  Twitch at 2 years old has taken 38 Green Stars (cac) since hitting the showring in April 2012, the nearest bitch to her on Green Stars in 2 years is on 7.  

The year started out at Crufts where Twitch won Special Junior Bitch under breed Specialist Ms Wendy Coates.  We were thrilled to see her do so well after her kennel mate Alfie won BOB at Crufts  last year.  Another great year for Zaralee and even more special that she is Homebred.

Onto Celtic Winners where she not only took the Junior Celtic Winner title but she also took GS & BOB and therefore took the Celtic Winner title aswell, but she didn't finish there!  She picked up her final GS for her Irish Title. (Twitch had 19 GS but due to IKC rules she was too young to take her title when she achieved her 7th GS so she had wait until she was over 15 months to become an IRISH CHAMPION).

In April we attended the PUP OF THE YEAR final and what a night we had.  Twitch not only was the only dog on the night to qualify twice but she is also the only Shar pei to ever qualify for this prestigous event. Twitch went on to take Runner Up Pup of The Year!!  What a fantastic night!!!  Twitch is the 1st and Only Shar pei to qualify for POTY and she is now the Only Shar pei to go Runner UP too!

Throughout 2013 Twitch went on to take a further 16 Green Stars ( Oct 13) and also picked up 3 x CACIBs.  We had a fantastic year with her and cant believe all she has achieved for a girl so young.  We look forward to campaigning Twitch in 2014 and we hope we have many successful shows with her again.

We would like to thank all the judges from home and abroad who have thought so highly of Twitch throughout her show career and to those judges who gave her wonderful critiques and comments, we are thrilled and we thank you most sincerely.
