PRESENTING OUR DARLING CASHMERE !!
CASHMERE won 3rd Place in the DDBS Puppy Sweepstakes Competition held at the time of DDBS Nationals in Las Vegas, March 2004.  This was her DEBUT into the show world (at 3 mos. old!) 
Judge Mark McElderry (as a debut puppy judge) liked what he saw!  Good job!

The noteworthy Judge Rolando Balestrini of Italy liked Cashmere even BETTER,  and placed CASHMERE 2nd in 3-6 month Puppy Class for the DDBS Nationals Specialty!
