2020 has been a special year in many ways. Of course we had to skip most of the show plans we had, but nevertheless this year has been an unforgettable one for us. Here a short summary on the boys achievements in 2020.
Sky was at 7 shows this year. He won his class 6 times with CAC and managed to win 3 out of 4 possible CACIB. Therefor he startet his IntCh. title. He also became Slovenian Winner-20, Winter Winner-20 and completed his first champion title: Slovenian Show Champion. Sky also passed the TAN of the Swiss Retriever Club. he is officially a stud dog now and there are already exciting plans for him in 2021!
Miles had a very layed-back year, enjoying his life as a Veteran. He has only been at 3 shows. In January he had his last outing in champion class. He won BEST OF BREED at the DRC Show in Herrenberg for specialist judge Mr. Liam Moran from Ireland. What a stylish way to end his career in champion class!
At the Dog Show Project in Switzerland he made his debut as a veteran. Both days he won vetCAC, best veteran of breed and BEST VETERAN IN SHOW. He became Swiss Veteran Champion.
Tian and I enjoyed 2020 to the fullest! We made so many beautiful memories together... We have been lucky to train with the best of trainers in challenging grounds, participate at various competitions and even to be in the showring together for one day.
Only show for Tian has been the saturday of the Dog Show Project in Switzerland... Tian just took it all! He won CAC, BEST OF BREED, BEST GUNDOG IN SHOW and BEST IN SHOW!!
Tians working achievements exceeded my expectations... he started the competition year by winning a novice dummy trial in France- what a start into the trialing world for us!! In September the "real season" started. Tian competed at 8 Field Trials (a la Francaise) during this Autumn. His results are:
2x first Place
2x 2nd Place
1x 3rd Place
He is now International Champion CIB (FCI homologation pending) and Trialer a la Francaise-20 (non homologated)!!
He also achieved 2 super working test results in summer! In S-Chanf he became 4th place with vg and 90/100 points. In Silvaplana he became 2nd with exc and 95/100 points.
To spend almost every day with my little souldog just makes me loving him more and more. Thank you for giving always 100% Tian... in daily life, in the show ring and in the field... <3
Fjell is our newest member of the team. It was a loooong journey to get him to Switzerland in this crazy times. I am very grateful to his breeders Eirin and Hans Ole Stenbro for choosing him for me, for keeping him longer in Norway, for preparing him for his new life and for sending him to us! He is such a promising young boy and stole our heart already. Can't wait what the future holds for him!
