It was a dream come true for Christine Biddlecombe when her Siberian Husky, CH Lincoln White at Tsaritsa took the prestigious Best of Breed award at Crufts.
Christine from Tunbridge Wells in Kent, has owned Siberian Husky’s since she was nine-year’s-old and says she ‘still can’t believe’ her lifetime passion and support for the breed has led to such a special win at the world’s largest dog show.
Lincoln as he is known at home, is now 10 and as well as showing also competes in two dog-sled races, a sport that is fast and furious and which he thoroughly enjoys.
His condition is fit and athletic with his glossy coat catching the judge’s eye with the help of his diet of Alpha High Performance dog food.
Says Christine: “It has been a lifelong ambition to win Best of Breed at Cruft’s and to do it with Lincoln is just fantastic.
“He is such a showman and just loves competing and being in the ring. He is such an all-round dog able to compete in dog-sled races one week and go into the show ring the next.
“He is the ideal breed specimen, is very typical of the standard and just enjoys showing so much and always has a smile on his face, he was born to show.
“Thanks to Alpha High Performance I know he will always look his best, the food is just fantastic and has been specially developed to enhance stamina for dogs that require sustained energy.
“Siberian Husky’s first came into my life when I was nine-years-old and we now have 18 of them at home – winning at Crufts really is amazing and I still can’t believe it now.
“Lincoln was 10-weeks-old when we got him, he is just a star, everyone loves him and he really does deserve his success at Crufts.”
