Our thoughts are with David and Caroline as they said a final goodbye to Sasha (Chartis Crystal Klear) 20/07/2003 - 03/04/2018. Sasha was not only their first German Pinscher but also their first dog. A wonderful companion and family member who's lovely erect ears caught the attention of many. RIP to the wonderful Sasha.
A tribute to Sassy, Tubize Ginger Rodgers 12/12/2003 -19/03/2018 . She was a grand old lady and when Donald and Heather had to say goodbye it was the end of an Era. Her siblings were Beckham, Tubize Van'nistelrooy For Remikz, UK breed record holder also Tubize Brazen Angel, Tubize Legacy For Lankirk, Tubize Penny Pincher At Inxs and Tubize Sizzling Sioux. Sassy had a good show career and won BOB twice at Crufts in 2007 & 2008 along with her many other wins. She was also short listed in groups at championship shows. She was part of the group of dogs who won the breeders stakes at Midland Counties. This was the 1st and only German pinscher team to achieve this.
We would like to send our condolences to Heather and Donald Smith, Sassy's breeders and owners. RIP Sassy.
Congratulations to the main winners and all the placings but especially to Milo - Best of Breed, Crufts 2018!
