 This page is the Conformation Show Record for
CH Tapscott's I'm A Hottie - Smudge.
CH Int Am BIS West Creek Hot Shot Tapscott ROMX x
CH Couture's Princess D'Tapscott ROM
Bred by Pamm and Jeanne Tapscott,
Tapscott's BIS Havanese

Mommy says: "Anyone who thinks it is not possible to  finish a dog without using a professional handler is missing most of the fun of conformation competition.  I was a complete novice in the breed ring but I finished Smudge to her AKC Championship completely owner-handled.  However, I was most definitely NOT alone!
I have been blessed to have the most wonderful "extended show family" anyone could ever hope for. There is no way I could have finished Smudge without the love and complete support of my incredible husband, Fred. Thanks to the Tapscotts, Tapscott's BIS Havanese, who sold Smudge to us. And Smudge and I could not have accomplished our wins
without Patty, who finally told me what I was doing wrong in the ring (even if I did have to twist her arm because she didn't want to hurt my feelings! Now THAT is a great friend!) and then told me how to do it right!  We also truly appreciate the support and encouragement of friends. That support is so important and when those friends are also your competition in the ring, it is a rare and wonderful thing to see! We are all genuinely happy for each other when we finish a dog and that is what makes our weekends at shows such a great time! I wish everyone who ever competes a network of friends and family like we have here at DawnGlo!"

This page is a record of my show experiences in the conformation ring. I had a lot of fun in the breed ring and now I am going to be cheering my baby sister, Icee, on from ringside. And the best part of being a Champion?

It took a lot of prep time to get me ready for the ring!
