Since she was first Born Saffire captivated my heart and had that something special about her. From her first show Saffy has
the type but the showmanship / attitude to boot, this mixed with the fact she has no over exaggerations, makes me very
proud to have bred her and more over It is a pleasure and honour to have her soundness, quality and type recognised
from such a young age from a range of highly respected judges who know what quality is.

share critiques but the following make me very proud.
Huntingdon RBPIS Critique: "RBPIS Spinillons Saffire, Papillon what this small dog lacked in size, she makes up for with
heart. Loved her total balance, perfectly schooled, head superbly balanced with good ear set and well shaped ears, lovely
dark eye with that keen alert expression , medium length of neck into good shoulders, pleasing fine bone and correct feet,
level topline, correct tail set so important to the breed. In lovely coat, very nice silky texture, moves like a dream, glides
around the ring with Panache".
18/11/07 - The Papillon butterfly dog club show. - Saff wins Minor puppy bitch and then goes on to win Best Puppy in show.
To win at such levels two days in a row has really excelled our dreams for such a youngester. She is following in her
Grandfather Zebedee's , ( Ch. & Ir Ch. Ibstock Bright Spark For Spinillons SH CM CW 10) steps who did the same.
Club Show BPIS Critique: " MINOR PUPPY BITCH 9 (1 abs) Davidson-Poston’s Spinillons Saffire. 7 ½ months tri. She stole my
heart. A dainty precocious baby and the most appealing expression. Correctly placed ears, well feathered for age. Superbly
constructed – excellent straight front, adequate upper arm and good rear assembly. Fine boned throughout but with deep
chest and good spring of rib. Presented in A1 order. Looked super in profile when standing but it was her movement which
was so eye catching. She has a great forehand and covers the ground with ease and takes everything in her stride. A very
bright future assured. BPB & BPIS. Well deserved. "
