Congratulations to Coco ...
Record Breaking Effort Makes This Norfolk the Breed's Standard-Bearer

Eng./Am. Ch. Cracknor's Cause Celebre (Ch. Richell Claret x Hatchwoods Madrigal) has rewritten the Norfolk record book since arriving on our shores in January, 2002. Among her wins was a Group 1 at this year's Westminster Kennel Club dog show, as well as Best in Show at the 2003 AKC/Eukanuba Invitational. Last October she swept Best in Show honors at all shows over the Montgomery County weekend, including Devon and Hatboro as well as Montgomery. She has added to her record almost faster than we can count, and has well over 50 Best in Show awards and well over 100 Group firsts. She was Number one Terrier and Number one dog - all breeds - in 2003.

This brilliant red bitch was bred in England by Elisabeth Matell. She is owned by Pam Beale, Stephanie Ingram and Ms. Matell, and is shown by Beth Sweigart.

Before coming to this Country, she had earned 8 CCs in England, including one at the Norfolk Terrier Club's Championship Show and one at Crufts in 2000. She won the Terrier Group at the Welsh Kennel Club show and Group 3 at South Wales Kennel Association.

Coco's appearance on various televised dog shows has brought our breed to the attention of dog lovers everywhere. Her obvious enthusiasm and eye catching beauty make her a great ambassador for our breed.

ANTA offers congratulations to all who have had a hand in making Coco "top dog"!
