Rikita Octavia of Hareswith (Heidi)

Rikita Octavia of Hareswith

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
