Nothing melts your heart like Butter. CKCSC-USA & AKC CH. Covington Fancy Pants- who crossed over to the rainbow bridge far too early. Try as we will, life is not perfect. She however had the only life she wanted with her Amber (Short) Elbon who Butter adored since Amber came into her life & started showing her. You broke her heart leaving too soon Butter but your life was always on your terms.
Congratulation to Jennifer (& Louise) Roberts Espinosa on their winning weekend in Fresno at the Sun Maid Kennel Club Show, winning Winners dog both days with their young boy Covington Handsome Ransom.
