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. There was a great entry, with even more Labs than at our Winnershow in Amsterdam last weekend.
Showyear 2018 started for our kennel with a BOB and ended with a BOB as well!
Woefdram's Abercrombie (Fitch) won:
1st in Junior + Junior CAC
Best Male + CAC
BEST OF BREED
Selected with the final 6 in the Gundog Group under Mr.F.Kane (UK).
This stunning boy is on a roll! We can't wait to show him & his brother Mac in 2019.
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!
We'd also like to thank all the bitch owners for using our studs last year. The boys have produced some lovely offspring. Thank you for your trust!
Great weekend at the CACIB shows in Amsterdam.
Friday was the Holland Cup with Mrs.Warendorf (NL) judging Labs. Mac won his 7th Junior CAC + Res.CAC
On sunday was the Winner Show with Mr.de Giuliani (It) judging Labs. Fitch won his 1st Junior CAC in Holland + Junior Winner 2018+ Crufts Qualification!!!
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 ;-)
We are proud that both Fitch & Mac are now Crufts qualified and both Gundog Group Winner at only 12 months of age!

In the mainring he showed beautifully. Mac won the Group!!! And later on he went BIS-6 out of more than 1200 dogs. What a day!
Then on sunday, under judge Mr.Simons, it 'almost' went as well as saturday. Once again Mac won Junior + Junior CAC + CAC + BOB and in the Group he was placed 2nd.
Amazing results and we're very proud of him!

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!
Woefdram's Abercrombie (Fitch), at his very first show on sunday, did the same thing as his brother. He 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.
