2009 has been a wonderful year from different points of view and not only for us, but also for some of our true friends in the dog world. Both our curly coated breeds did extremely well on national and international competition level! We kicked off with some shows in Germany, Belgium, Holland and again Germany… and most of our dogs gained some really nice titles: a perfect training for the European Dogshow, which was held in Dublin. On one of the fundamental grounds of the Irish horse racings, Totti and Ti Amo showed themselves real showstars, becoming European Winner ’09 and European Junior Winner ’09! A result we not even dared to dream of!
But there was more to come. Our dogs gave away a superb performance at the Clubshow of the Dutch Lagotto Club, for example! All our dogs where put up with the best four in the individual classes. Totti even managed to defend his Clubwinner title from the year before with great success and became Clubwinner 2009. Time to broaden the horizon: Bratislava was waiting for us.
At the CAC show in Bratislava, Totti did it once again: in a strong competition field with 19 Lagotti he became Best of Breed. The World Dog Show was held the day after. 69 Lagotti where entered, Totti got the res. CAC! The day couldn’t get any better when Wetterhoun Rozebottel’s Rijnke Ranonkel became BOB and World Winner 2009!
After visiting more national and international shows, we ended this wonderful showyear with two other great wins for both the Lagotto and the Wetterhoun in our kennel. At the Amsterdam Winner Dario di Casa Cleo and Klazien-Jolk v.d. Kraay Heide managed to gain the Winner title! At the Christmas show in Wijchen, we celebrated all the results with our friends Ilona (Casa Hoyas, PWD) and Trudie & Jenneke (Dal Podere Antico, Spinone Italiano) and Toon & Jolanda (Wyclydo’s, Clumber Spaniel).
