Angela and Softly Softly win at Crufts 08. Angela says " I was delighted
with our win and most of all with the way Twist showed. He always gives
of his best and when the opportunity came to handle him I stepped into
the hot seat. Due to work commitments mum and I couldn't both attend
Crufts this year and although I have many times visited Crufts, I have
never shown a dog. Apt then that I should show Twist who is after all,
my dog. Mother usually does the showing because my having a small child
and the fact that I sometimes physically can't handle due to a
circulation problem I suffer with can restrict me This time it was down
to me and all things taking into considertion, we had a super day".
Twist has always been a consistant dog and loves showing on the green
carpet. Over the last three years at Crufts he has twice been RCC and
now CC dog. His sister was BOB last year-what a super duo.
