It's hard to put into words how proud we are of our fabulous Niki, (NZ Ch Eldivino Senorita Nikita). Today her 3rd Crufts Qualifying Entry certificate arrived, topping off a stellar 12 months for our girl. Here are some of the highlights of Niki's year...
Niki gave us the delightful Kyrie (Kitaco's Valkyrie Warrior). In addition to proving a spectacular mother, her daughter has morphed into a mini-me version of Nikita, only with slightly less attitude.
A star, quite literally from birth, thanks to her dramatic entry into the world, Kyrie has already won several Group titles in the Conformation ring, a photo competition with Furtography and featured on the cover of the NZ Dog World Magazine. We have high hopes her spectacular temperament and quick intelligence will serve her well in the Obedience Ring next year. Oh, and she is currently in training with her mum for a stage production in the new year. The apple (head.. LOL) hasn't fallen far from the tree here!
Nikita marked her return to the Show Ring by taking her 70th Challenge Certificate.
Although, strictly speaking, Nikita is in "semi-retirement" from showing, she still struts her stuff on occasion.
We enter her in selected shows and she remains nigh unbeatable in a fair competition.
Best in Show at the Dominion Chihuahua Club Open Show under NZ Judge, Jenny Hamilton.
Niki slayed the catwalk as a model for the Pet Central 5th Birthday Fashion Parade
Niki proved what a quality girl she is by taking the Best Bitch CC for the third year running and Reserve of Breed at the NZ National Dog show, qualifying, yet again, to compete at Crufts..
Thank-you so much to Tracy Pearce from Eldivino Kennels for allowing us to have this spectacular girl. She is our pride and joy and we are thrilled we have been able to offer her a forever place in our kennels and especially our hearts.
