Buddy became a CFA Grand Premier at Mansfield show in August that same year.
It took Buddy a little longer to earn his Grand Champion Alter title in CFF.
Buddy Rich is a grandson of the famous Grand Champion JazzyAbys Fats Waller (aka “Wally”), against whom Gun-Hee competed in the kitten class. Gun-Hee actually competed against Wally at his first show. This video shows Gun-Hee (#28) earning second best of breed in a ring with Wally (#30) being awarded best Aby in that kitten ring.
Gun-Hee also met Eszencia TheCountess of Jazzy Abys in his second show as a kitten.
