Heidi, or Rikita Octavia of Hareswith, was my foundation bitch. She was a good all
rounder, enjoying going to shows as well as picking up in the shooting season and
competing in working tests.
Heidi always wanted to carry things to help me, if I went to the shops she carried my purse, when she went to shows she had to be given the catalogue and would carry it all the way to the bench!
Heidi had two litters by Storm (Ch Purbarn Xtra Thunderstorm) and another by Song (Bedeslea Midnight Song). She was a very caring mother taking her duties very seriously
Heidi qualified for Crufts as a Minor Puppy and went on a year later to achieve her Show Gundog Working Certificate In August 2001 she passed her Bronze test in the Good Citizen Dog Scheme run by the Kennel Club.
After we moved to France, Heidi competed twice in class veteran winning 1st excellent both times.
