news 2011

We had a lot of fun with our dogs in 2011: going for walks, searching for truffles, starting first water work trainings and of course we went to dog shows all over Europe. All accompanied by friends who gave us best lessons, support and friendship.

To start with the dogshows. First a big brag: Gleska Goody-Goody “Mc” made some history in the Autumn, she became the first Lagotto ever to win a BIS in Holland. Her next show in Holland she ended as runner-up BIS. This was an absolute highlight for us and Mc, but at the same time I am thinking of the fun we had during water work training and truffle search with her. She was absolute “the show winner” in the pack this year, 4 times BIG and one BIG-3 besides her BIS and BIS-2 placements.

The two biggest shows in Europe this year were extremely successful for our dogs. At the WDS in Paris we had 2 new titles in Wetterhoun and BOB. In Lagotti (92 entries) no titles but what can we be proud! Dario di Casa Cleo reserve CACIB, Gleska Goody-Goody 1st in strong champion class. Little Rozebottel’s Grappa made me very proud, 2nd in junior class. The EDS in Leeuwarden was a very  special one for us, winning BOB on the birth ground of the Wetterhoun and 3 titles. In Lagotto Rozebottel’s Grappa took EJW-11 title (biggest class in the breed). Dario di Casa Cleo and Gleska Goody-Goody both ended the day with reserve CACIB!!! A fantastic day for us. On Sunday we had to come back for BIS national breed competition and Klazien Jolk v.d. Kraay Heide made it up to runner-up BIS national breeds.

In August Caelum (Apache dei Boschi D’Oro) came all the way from Romania to join us. In September he went to his first puppy show and he went all the way up to BIS puppy.

This year we went for the first time to some water work training, Mc is already an addict and Caelum made his first boat trips when he was 4 months, let´s see if he will like it as much as Mc in the future. Both in Swiss and Sweden we went for some truffle searching with the dogs. In October we competed in a working trail in Italy and Caelum was graded promising (he found one white truffle).
