As always in the second weekend of October it was time for THE Raduno. We traveled to Emilia Romagna for a weekend full of joy, meeting lagotto friends, visit breeders, learn more and more about the breed and the raduno and working test.
We had some lovely dinners, made some nice walks and there was even time to relax in between.
The raduno had a record entry of 200 lagotti, we showed 3 of our dogs and they all got an individual placement in large and high quality classes. We started with Gleska Goody-Goody, she was placed 4th in champion class. Immediately after the biggest class in bitches started open class. We entered Rozebottel’s Grappa in this class and being selected with best four dogs in this class made me so proud. Just minutes later she ended by winning her class, that was an absolute highlight for me as a breeder/owner. Could it get even better? YES!!! Rozebottel’s Grappa CAC WINNER!!!!!!
After a short break it was time to bring the puppies in the ring, we entered Rozebottel’s Big Spender, at just 6,5 months of age he ended up as 2nd best puppy boy. His nephew Rozebottel’s Sir Maleagant “Gimli” (owner: Christine Frei) won puppy class males and ended the day as BOB-PUPPY!!!!
Rozebottel’s Grappa was also selected for the 3 extra competitions: Best head, best coat and best movement&construction. In movement and construction she made it up to the final 4!!!!!
Males: Gilberto Grandi
Females: Professore Giovanni Morsiani
