As we mention UK in the dog world the CRUFTS come to the mind..
I had the honor to Judge CRUFTS two breeds, and to show at CRUFTS two times and to win tow Best of breed! The winners are Cotonbrie Vercingetorige and Cotonbrie Anastasia.
The first Cotonbrie in UK was Os Sole mio. A famous Champion imported and showed by Hazel Gill, Cottonkiss cotons. With Hazel we had years of cooperations and she was in my side helping with the book on the breed ‘Coton’s World”. Hazel reports many success with mine and her cotons.
Another passionate coton lover is Shelagh Needham and her husband James. They love Beardies and Cotons, kennel name Cotoncloude. Shelagh is also a well known Judge. They owns many champions of both breeds, Cotonbrie Cezanne, aka ‘Gianni” was their first gentleman coton. Then Cotonbrie Marco Polo, Cotonbrie Dindirindina for Cotoclode, Cotonbrie Ginevra..
