Gypsy was born 9 November 2002. Like her mother she started life a brindle
colour but cleared out to be to a grey. Her mother, Nor & Fin CH, Norw W-03, Panaphia's
Midnight Flame for Shardlow, was imported from Kennel Panaphia in Norway.
Gypsy is handled in the show-ring by Allan and together they enjoy much
success. Some of their highlights in Puppy classes were RBPIS at Poole Canine Society Open
show and Best Bitch Puppy in breed at Bournemouth Championship show, together
with many BPIB and group placings at Open shows. Gypsy was also placed
twice in Championship show Puppy Stakes classes - 2nd at Richmond and 3rd at
Gypsy gained her Junior Warrant title a week after her sister Whoopi. We are so proud to have bred two such wonderful girls who are a joy to live with.
Gypsy qualified for the Junior Warrant Competition, firstly by being in the final 5 in the qualifying heat under judge Ann Arch. Then the semi-finals were held at Discover Dogs 2004 where Steve Hall judged her and awarded her 2nd place. The finals were held at CRUFTS 2005 and Gypsy was one of the 10 finalists there.
Gypsy was Best In Show at the Lhasa Apso Association of Wales & South West in November 2006, and went Best in Show at the following Lhasa Apso Association of Wales & South West show in March 2007.
Gypsy has won 1 CC
Gypsy and Whoopi are truly joys to live with.
