was an elegant but still a
classical cocker spaniel.

Lovis got her CC:s
Mr Paul Stanton, SKK Stockholm

Mr Jostein Halvorsen, SKK Skara
Most of the judges, both Swedish,
British and others, appericiated her for her lovely movements and elegance combined
with a classical expression.
In 1996 "Lovis" best of opposite
sex for Joukko Leiviskä (SF) on SKK Västerås. To the left is her father Lochdene Copper
Kettle who won BOB.
As older she
became, the more she seemed to enjoy the shows. In summer -98 the judge
Mr Hans Lehtinen wrote:
" Well done bitch, very beautiful
head, beautiful neck and topline, good body, flowing movement, very beautiful
sihlouett. As a veteran, she is in an amazing
condition". (my translation)
Lovis, 8 years old, in Skokloster -98. Finales in
the veteran- and field trial classes. She was placed on a 3:rd respectively on a 4:th
place in each class in the finale.
Lovis had a fantastic way of moving in the field and I had a long time great expectations on her as a follower to my
old Travis It´s A Black-Out. She moved with ease and good pace. In addition, she often
proved to be a good gamefinder. However, she proved also rather quickly to have her own
mind and her "will to please" did not always agree with the standards of field
trials. She had a great desire to do her things in her own way and seemed not see the
necessity to wait for me.

trial once. This took place in the state of Hässelbyholm, and this resulted in a second
price in the "new-beginners" stake, despite that she performed worse than ever considering pace and
style. But she found her game, was fully steady and did a very good retrieve for a
partridge hen. Mr Karl Blomqvist from Finland judged and he wrote on her remarks;
"The dog did an excellent work on a wounded partridge hen, which were
flushed, shot and run about 40 meters before the dog get to it and then delivered it to
hand. This dog is able to achive a better price with more luck and with better
condition." (my translation)
