Eukanuba World Challenge & Cruft’s



I think we truly can say that this is the best day of our dog shows life! 

Charleen presented Portugal at Eukanuba World Challenge where she finished as finalist 12 best dogs out of 35 dogs from all over the world! She has been judged in her section by famous and highly respectable judge Derek Smith which judged already few years ago BIS at Crufts! She was selected by him in top 4 out of very strong group!






Charleen did a story as any Portuguese dog had never got so far!


We are very grateful to judges of the day :

Angela Ashbourne for breed


Rodney Oldham for the group

Phantom (SamspringPhantom of Opera) did us very proud as well winning 



Both of them got wonderful critiques from the judge:
