Knopa Goes BOB At Westminster Dog Show
Intl. GCH McVan's To Russia With Love "Knopa" went Best of Breed at the highly prestigious Westminster Dog Show in New York City. Knopa, who is owned by Marina Khenkina of Moscow, Russia, is the great great grand daughter of Peggy Sue who went Best in Show at Westminster in the 1990s. Knopa was shown by Rebecca Cross, her handler and our friend.
Knopa's Westminster win tops a highly successful career here in the United States. She was No. 1 Scottish Terrier in 2013 and 2014 and a Top 3 terrier in 2014. She has earned 8 Best in Shows. She has won the Scottish Terrier Club of America's National Specialty twice as well as England's most prestigious Crufts.
Knopa will be returning to Russia where she plans to sleep in late on Marina's bed, chase bunnies and romp with other scotties and wire fox terriers.
