Raduno CIL 2015
For a change we decided to fly to Italy for the annual Raduno (Clubshow). For that reason we could only bring 2 dogs. Our friends who co-own R Mc Dreamy “Derek” rescheduled their holiday and joined us for the weekend.
The joy to go to the biggest Lagotto event in Italy, to meet all the people, to talk about the breed, to have FUN and to enjoy the good food are something we look forward to the whole year.
In the past years our dogs did extremely well under different judges. But this year beats every other year. Boy-o-Boy the boys did great.
Dogs were judged by G. Grandi.
The day started with the champion class, we entered Rozebottel’s Big Spender “Wouter” in this class. A total of 11 boys from around the world were entered and the quality was high. Wouter won the champion class, what a thrill.
From there we had to wait until the end of the day before Derek and Bunny were judged.
In between we saw Regun Mango (sire of our current litter of R Grappa) winning the reserve CAC.
Derek (R Mc Dreamy) did a fantastic job at his second show ever. He was placed 3rd in intermediate.
Now it was time for the crazy youngster. There were 16 junior dogs entered. Bunny (Rozebottel’s PlayBoy) won junior dog and with that he gained a new title CAMPIONE SOCIALE GIOVANI 2015 (club junior winner).
After a break they started with the judging of best junior, Bunny won BEST JUNIOR.
After that they continued with the best dog competition. Both boys went back in the ring. Bunny decided he only wanted to to do his stuff with Katrien. We decided to swop for the up and down. The judge asked to do one more round with Bunny. He took the microphone and said; even if he didn’t behave so well with the other person, this was my BEST DOG already!!!
Just couldn’t believe it.
Bunny is only 10 MONTHS OLD. And became best dog of more than 70 adult dogs.
As the best dog was a junior: the winners of champion, CAC and working class had to come back for the CAMPIONE SOCIALE 2015 (Clubwinner). Could it get any better? Yes!!!! Wouter took the title two years after his mother did the same.
Both boys were selected for best movement and construction, best coat and best head.
The most precious of those 3 for us is the movement and construction one. Just because this is something we think is really important for every dog. A good construction and sound movement supports the dogs health and condition.
Bunny won MOVEMENT AND CONSTRUCTION. Just like Grappa did 2 years ago.
At the end of the day Bunny gave a great performance in the best of breed competition which was judged by G. Morsiani who judged the bitches. Bunny ended a fantastic day as BEST OF OPPOSITE.
The pleasure of meeting some friends (not all were there) who always stay, even if we might have different opinions sometimes and even if we breed different type and work on different goals. How we can talk about our dogs with a clear, open and honest vision. But the deep respect for each other and support makes us feel that those friends just get better and better friends. A big thank you for you all. The long talks with you and your support are a big part of the success we can celibate today. Un grande abbracci
