Eukanuba Champion Stakes Final

Article text
By winning the National Terrier heat of the Eukanuba Champion Stakes back in April, Pamaka qualified for the final of this prestigious competition, which was held on November 5h at Chesford Grange Hotel in Warwickshire.

As part of the prize, we had already had a photoshoot with top canine photographer Lisa Croft-Elliott, but nothing quite prepares you for the sight of the ring - Eukanuba pink carpet, white picket fence and more than life size photos of the 30 finalists all around the ring.

I couldn't have been prouder of my special girl - she didn't put a foot wrong all afternoon, free standing in the centre of the ring whilst the commentator told the audience about her show record, then showing and moving without fault.

We didn't win - in all honesty we didn't expect to! But we were there - the first Cesky Terrier ever to compete in this event.
