Belated happy new year to all, hope the start of 2018 has been good to you. Not many have been out yet this year showing, but Sally Clark and me went to Mouscron CACIB show in Belgium, only 4 entered under Portuguese Judge Mr Gorjao-Henriques he is quite a strict judge marking down some quite nice Dobermans who were in the ring before us, so we weren’t sure how we’d do. Results were Lux Ch Hickson Phantasos vid Dreamtasos Open Class EXC1, CAC/CACIB BOS huge congrats Sally and Max, Starviper Black Magic at Vukasin Jr class, EXC1 RBB Jr BOB with this 3rd win makes her Bel Jr Ch, Bel/Lux Ch Starviper Apple Schnapps Open class EXC1 CAC/CACIB BOB she now just needs one more CACIB for Int Ch title, and it was lovely to meet a fellow GP owner Andrea Lehmann who showed her girl in Ch class Int Ch Legendorf Yurika EXC1, CAC, RCACIB. Unfortunately I didn’t get out last year to do any races in Canicross or Bikejor, but we will be training ready for this winter series. I am currently organising a seminar which will be held in Portsmouth, dates tbc, so keep a look out in my next lot of breed notes for more information. Thoughts are with Christina (Dark Angels in Germany) for the very sad loss of Pepper, I was honoured to have met Pepper in person and she was the sweetest girl you could wish to see, also a great Loss to German Pinschers with the very sudden passing of Shanyn Dunn (Australia) our thoughts go out to all who knew her and her family.
If anyone has anything to add to Breed notes please do get in contact and i’ll be happy to include them, it doesn’t have to be just show wins.
