Libby Crufts BOB
Libby – my little show girl!  Life is an adventure with Libby, it’s lovely to have a window into a little world where absolutely everything in life is exciting and should be celebrated!  Libby has a huge zest for life which she applies to everything, walks, games, shows and even hugs.  Sitting on one person’s lap is just boring, you should always lie across two laps.  If two people are not available then the neck of the lucky human is clearly the correct place to settle.Libby has had huge success in the show ring, and I can only thank judges for thinking so highly of her.  What makes it more special for me is that Libby truly loves going to her shows.  Perhaps a little too much.  Libby will often break into song at a show, to my fellow exhibitors I can only say sorry!  She is 8 years old now, I haven’t managed to break the habit yet, I don’t think that I am going to succeed! Libby to me is one of those show dogs of a life time, I cannot actually pick her show highlight she has done so many firsts for the UK Kooikers.  Maybe taking Crufts BOB when only 11 months old, but then there was the unbelievable day when she became the only Kooiker to ever be placed in the Gundog Group at a UK Championship show, or winning two back to back Best in Show awards at the UK breed club shows, or winning Best Bitch at the Dutch Kooikerhondje Breed Championship Show.  To be honest, it might just be when she was 11 weeks old at ring craft and the instructor moved her in a triangle for me so I could see how she went, I knew I had a star.
