“Reuben” is currently taking time out of showing to mature and grow a brain (we think this is still in the early stages of development). He thinks he is still a puppy and that everyone who comes near him, including judges, is going to give him a cuddle.
He had a very successful puppy career winning BPIS at The Northern Samoyed Society Ch Show in March 2003 under breed specialist Averil Cawthera-Purdy. This was followed by many other notable wins.
Although only attending 6 shows in 2004 he still managed to win 1 x Reserve Green Star and much to our delight the RCC at Belfast Ch Show in September 2004 under
Australian judge Alison Franks. This win gave him his Stud Book Number.
Reuben's distinguishing mark is the little biscuit circle round his left eye
He will hopefully be returning to the show ring in summer when he grows a new coat.
