GCH CH WeDigit Paparazzi
Best went to the IWS, Bella, and Reserve went to the Smooth Fox, Paparazzi. With this win Bella becomes the third of her litter to win a BIS. The other two are her litter sisters, GCH CH Whistlestop’s Rile on Fire and GCH CH Whistlestop’s Fire and Ice. A litter brother, CH Whistlestop’s Elements of Magic CD RN, just took the breed and Challenge Certificate at Crufts. That’s what we call sibling rivalry. Big congratulations to breeders Colleen McDaniel & Stacy Duncan, owner Michelle Cuummings, and handler Amy Rutherford.
