Such WONDERFUL news from my good friend Linda McKinnon in Canada!!!! Ariel not only fulfilled our dreams but started a lifetime friendship! Thanks so much Linda for all your hard work and wonderful care of Ch. Rose Arbor's Hoochie Koochie...your sweet "Ariel". 

In Linda's own words:

"Home from a wonderful and fulfilling weekend at our National Specialty. On Sat. at the National, our beautiful Ariel, now 8 years, won BOS and Best Veteran under the renowned Judge Jeanie Montford. 

On Sunday, at the Eastlake Specialty, she won Best Veteran and Select Bitch under Judge Ceasar Cortes.

What a thrill it has been to watch Ariel achieve the full Circle of Life.

Going from Best Puppy in Sweeps in 2010 to Best Veteran in 2017. 

As always a Very Special Thank-you to my Dear Friend and Ariel's breeder, Betzie Smith. Thank goodness we found each other.

Here is Ariel and her ribbons and prizes she brought home!" 

Judge Jeanie Montford's wonderful critique of "Ariel':

She is just Gorgeous and stole my heart. Such a wonderful Breed type, so correct in all the

details . Her expression soft and melting ,she moved with gentle dignity around the ring. She is the type of cavalier bitch anyone would be proud to own .

"Rosearbor Bijou (Eckersley) 10 month old Black and Tan. OMG! I loved this puppy the minute she came into the ring. Beautiful head with large dark eyes that sparkle with interest, ears that frame her face. Long neck and lovely angles front and rear. Level topline standing, a little soft on the move. Level tail set. Shiny coat. A trifle longer cast than I would prefer but a beautiful package. This girl will go far! I was pleased to award her an Award of Merit and Best Black and Tan in Show"
