My long awaited little girl Asha arrived from Russia in March 2014. She had travelled by road from Moscow with her breeder's friend Karina Grigoran of the well known Griland OES who was exhibiting at Crufts.
Asha settled in very quickly and became Fighter's best friend. He had become very lonely and depressed since Tiger had died and as Manny was still in Holland he was missing company. This was just what he needed.
She attended her first Ch Show on 12 April and at just 5 months won Best Baby Puppy in Breed and went on to win Res Best Baby Puppy in Show under Judge Aidan McKernan. The following day she went to Banbridge Ch Show where once again she was BBPIB and went on to win her second RBBIS under Judge Oliver Noonan.
At Munster Can Ch Show on 31st May '14 she won her first Green Star under Judge Mrs Sally Burns and also won a very strong Puppy Stakes under Judge Mrs Dolores Dineen. This was her first time competing in the Puppy Stakes and it qualified her for POTY.
On her first year of showing she won 3 Green Stars and 5 Res Green Stars.
At Mayo Open Show on 31 August '14 she was BOB, won Group 5 and went on to win Best in Show.
2015 started well for Asha when she won her Junior Diploma, Junior Champion Title and also Celtic Junior Winner title at The Celtic Winners Show in March. She also qualified for Crufts 2016.
She won her 7th Green Star at Portadown Show in April and gained her Irish Ch Title.
At the IrIsh Samoyed Club Breed Ch Show in July she won Green Star Bitch and RBISS.
She also won her Stud Book No at Belfast Ch Show in Sept.
Despite having a massive coat drop in July and being out of the ring for 4 months she finished 2015 as Top Female with 10 Green Stars, 4 Res Green Stars, 3 x BOB plus a Group 2 placing at Newtownards Show in May.
She started off 2016 by winning GSB, CW '16 & Crufts qualification at the St Patrick's Day Show in Mar.
She was GSB, BOB and BISS at The Irish Samoyed Club Breed Ch Show in July under Ms Ann Ingram.
She was 2nd in Ch Stakes at Coleraine Ch Show under Mrs Heather Salmon - Wilson.
In 2016 she won 22 GS, 3 RGS, 6 BOB and a Group 4 placing.
This confirmed her as Top Female 2016, TOP SAMOYED & ANNUAL CHAMPION 2016
