Imanje Msitu Mashamba - Show results
Mika started her showing career in March 2014. She has been trying very hard to learn what to do like her mummy...but she just loves everyone so much and likes to see what is going on around her that she finds it hard to stand still!
She is just a puppy and showing will be fun for us (already she is showing some of her uncle Loki's traits including her waggy tail) so her humans might have to work just that little bit harder than she does!
Some highlights of Mika's show career...
