7 & 8 December 2019
A lovely weekend at the Austrian Christmas Shows in Wels. Apart from the 2 shows, we visited the Weihnachtsmarkt and ate typical Wiener Schnitzel and Apfelstrudel.
Once again Fitch rocked the showring!

17 November 2019
A wonderful day at the Eurodogshow in Belgium!
Fitch went 1st in Open + CAC/CACIB + BOB + Best in Group + Best in Show #3 out of almost 2500 entered dogs!!!
The judges were Mrs.Blay (UK) & Mr.de Cuyper (BE) & Mr.Stanton (S)
Fitch wins the Res.CC at Midland Counties Champshow in the UK!
Approx. 185 Labs were entered. Judge: Mr.Metcalfe.
Fabulous day at the Bundessieger Show in Dortmund!
Judges Becci Hodge and Karl Gawthorpe had a big entry of 100 Labs and exhibitors came from all over Europe with quality dogs.
Our young star Swissking Admirals Beach Boy won 1st in Junior + Junior CAC + Bundes Jugend Sieger 2019!!!
Our adult star Woefdram's Abercrombie won 1st in Open + 2 VDH CAC's + LCD CAC + CACIB + BOS + Bundes Sieger 2019!!!
Huge thanks to the judges!
When we arrived home, I found out Fitch can add another title to his list: "VDH Winner of the Year 2019".
It seems to be the most difficult title in Germany and since this title was invented, only 1 Labrador achieved it before. Valerie from Fam.Korff.
So Valerie and Fitch are the only Labs with this title so far!
You need to win at least 2 CACIB's at the "4 important German shows": Europasieger, Bundessieger, Annual Trophy or German Winner Show.
Plus at least 2 CACIB's at other International Shows. All need to be won within 1 calendar year.
Since Fitch won the CACIB at the Europasieger and Bundessieger and 2 other CACIB's in Bremen and Dortmund, he can add the title to his name now.
He can even be entered in Championclass with this title and he's only 23 months old!
28 & 29-09 2019
Back to back CACIB show in Maastricht!
Our boys did well!

The English, American and Scandinavian judge liked him a lot.

He also did a great job by getting a 2nd place in Championclass + Best Male #3 + Res.CAC under Kathy Sneider
and by getting a 1st placement in Championclass + Best Male #3 under Hannele Jokisilta.
This was the lovely showground and the cabins you could rent. The beach was very close to the camping site, which was so nice!
This show is a great experience. Everybody should try and come to this show at least once!

Fitch is on a roll!
We have never shown in France before, so we decided to enter Fitch for the famous "Championnat de France" in Paris. The show had a total entry of more than 8000 dogs.
I guess it's a famous & important show for the French exhibitors because you need the CAC of this specific show to become French Champion. It's like a mandatory point.
We're over the moon with Fitch' result!
He was placed 1st in Intermediate, won the mandatory CAC and even went on to win the CACIB, Best Dog, BOB and... BEST IN GROUP in the mainring!!!
Looking at Fitch' recent showresults, I think he did something amazing at the 3 biggest shows lately:
* BOB + BEST IN GROUP in Brussel

Dutch Top Dog of the Year Show 2018
One of the nicest shows with only the best dogs as you need to qualify for this show by winning BOB at our Clubshow or by getting a 1st/2nd/3rd placement in the Group at an All Breed show in Holland.
Not easy at all for a Lab.
Only 5 Labradors qualified last year and we're proud to say that we qualified 3 of them!
We took our Mac - Woefdram's American McDreamy with us. He showed wonderfully and moved like a dream on 'the famous catwalk'.
He was selected as 'Best Labrador' and ended up with the final selection of 6 out of 30 Gundogs!
Last show of the year: All Breed Christmas show in Venray with Mrs.Mensink (NL) judging all Labs.

Looking back at 2018, it has been a fabulous year for our kennel.
Both Fitch & Mac passed their x-rays & all other health tests. They did some nice winnings in the baby & puppy classes but now they're in Junior, so the 'real job' has started.
In only three months time they've won: 11 Junior CAC's, 5 CAC's, Dutch Junior Champion, Bundes Jugendsieger 2018, Junior Winner 2018, Crufts qualification, 4 BOB's and 2 Gundog Group wins.
There were 25 CACIB shows in Holland in 2018, we attended 16 and won 8x BOB. Not bad at all, we think! Big thanks to all the judges for making this possible!

Trophee show Brussel - with Eeva Rautala judging all Labs.
We only entered Fitch - Woefdram's Abercrombie, because we hoped to win the Crufts qualification.
This show was the only Crufts qualifying show in Belgium in 2018, which you could see in the entry. There were exhibitors from all over Europe with many good dogs.
The judge loved Fitch and made him 1st in Junior + Junior CAC + Crufts qualification!!!
But it only got better...
Best of Breed
Best in Group!!!
Some people were wondering if we still had him because I was only showing his brother Mac recently. Well... here he is ;-)

02-04-2018 Int. show Goes
A wonderful weekend for our kennel at the back to back CACIB show in Goes. On saturday Mrs.Kadike Skadina (LV) was the judge.
We've never shown under her before so we didn't know what to expect but it feels like we took it all! Best Baby, Best Junior, both CAC's & BOB!
The same happened on sunday under judge Mrs.Halff-van Boven (NL)!
Woefdram's American McDreamy (Mac), at his very first show on saturday, won 1st in Baby + Best Baby in Breed and was selected with the final 6 in the mainring!

A wonderful debut for both brothers.
Mrs.Halff-van Boven wrote a lovely critique on Fitch: "A star to be. He can handle the whole showring already. Pretty masculine head. Excellent pigmentation, eyecolour, correct earset.
Nice neck/topline. Great ribcage. Excellent bone, legs & feet. Excellent coat. A super happy puppy who already moves through the ring with allure."
Int.Sh.Ch.Mocnys Knoxville is back home from his holiday in Scotland.
He showed he's back in town by going 1st in Champion + CAC/CACIB + BOB on both days!!! He showed perfectly and looks great.
