However the highlight for us was the performance of SH CH CANIGOU CLASSIC ROCK (Speedy). Making her last appearance in the show ring, with four of her offspring she won the Brood Bitch class. She’s shown below, nearest to the camera with her handler Steve Bentley, who’s making an even rarer appearance in the ring. Next in line is SH CH CANIGOU SECON TAN ROSE (6CCs) with her handler April Murray, then SH CH CANIGOU LOVE ON THE ROCKS (6 CCs) with Anita Sedzicka, SH CH CANIGOU ROCK STAR (3 CCs) with Adam Murray and finally CANIGOU ABBA NICE DAY with Trica. In a brief showing career Speedy won 10 CCs. She is the dam of 5 Sh Ch, a record in the breed.
The same lineup, with SH CH CANIGOU ROCKET SCIENCE (13 CCs) substituted for CANIGOU ABBA NICE DAY, won Best Breeder for Tricia, with a total of 38 CCs between the five of them.
