PEPPERTHYME ON A RAINBOW - 'Rain'

Rain arrived home on Valentine's Day and has shared the love with everyone since!
From a litter of 7 puppies bred by Wendy Amon of the respected Pepperthyme kennels, she has proven to be an extremely confident, sassy little miss! She will be making her show debut in summer 2015.

I recently asked a breed specialist who judges the breed at championship level for their opinion of Rain and was delighted to be given such positive feedback:-

'Very pretty head, nice eye shape and colour, good ear set, nice strength to muzzle for one so young - in fact very together throughout for age!
Good neck leading onto what looks like well laid shoulder, nice bone.
Lovely top line and croup good turn of stifle. All in all a VERY promising puppy. I love her all over!'

And she is fulfilling that promise already.... At just 6.5 months old, Rain won Best Puppy in Group at Yeovil & District Limit Show and just a week later won JB, Best Puppy & RBCC at Blackpool Championship Show 2015 under Mr Kari Jarvinen (Finland)

'Very promising. Excellent head with beautiful expression. Correct neck and topline. Correct proportions. Body needs time. Correct angulation and moving well. RCC.' (K Jarvinen, Judge)

She is carving a very nice show career for herself as the show season (2015) continues and has won 2 further Best Puppy awards at Richmond and Darlington and Best Bitch at Bournemouth Championship show.

Steve Hall (Shenedene) who judged Rain at Darlington wrote: A very clean cut outline with a delightful disposition, very feminine to view, good head with excellent eye & ears, good shoulders, firm body for age, good productive mover. Presented in good order. BP.

Frank Kane (Hirontower) and SV judge at Bournemouth wrote: 8 months, very promising puppy who is very well constructed & moves accordingly. Feminine head with lovely ears. Can strengthen in foreface. Lovely temperament. BB & BP.

2016 has been a quieter time for us in the ring due to other commitments, but we are delighted with Rain's excellent results at the handful of shows we attended. Winning every class entered at CRUFTS, WELKS, THREE COUNTIES, SOUTHERN COUNTIES and BOURNEMOUTH, she also won Best of Breed at Bournemouth.

Crufts - JB 1 Howe's Pepperthyme On A Rainbow. A very feminine bitch with a good reach of neck, well laid shoulders, nice head, correct ear carriage, good stop, dark oval eyes. Correct body ratio, well turned stifle and moved well. Jan Wilton, Judge.

Three Counties - JB 1 Howe's Pepperthyme On A Rainbow. Lovely old fashioned bitch. Well built but still feminine, good front assembly and rear, lovely shoulders, good well carried topline. Moved well and well handled. Res BB. Paul Conway, Judge.
