INTRODUCING THE THIRD GENERATION

Daniel's first encounter with Crufts was when he was 10 days old, little did we envisage what lay ahead.
A couple of weeks after his 11th birthday Daniel made his debut as an exhibitor, at Crufts, and he certainly did it in style
by winning the biggest class of the day, veteran bitch with 12 entries,
He expertly handled Rhian to beat 6 other show champions in the process.

He will always remember his first show with immense pride thanks to the excellent video camera work and commentary of his younger brother Connor.

 

 

Special thanks to our judge

Margaret Crawford who made

Crufts 2014

a truly unforgettable day

A HAPPY EASTER IN COEVORDEN

   

We spent a lovely week over easter with our friends Ronald & Anita. During this time there were many visitors who came to see Dixon & Mika's pups
including Mireille & her daughter Nour who own Miko (Dexter's son) who is doing extremely well in Field Trials in Holland.
