Highlights 2013

The year 2013 has come to an end and what a year it has been for my 2 Flatcoated Retrievers!

They both have proven themselves as real dual-purpose dogs, as they should be as real Flatcoated Retrievers.

They both are active, multi-talented gundogs with a strong desire to please people and a big will-to-please, as they should be as real Flatcoated Retrievers.

They both were arwarded a lot on dogshows, with lots of highlights like Dustin who became BEST OF BREED on the CACIB dogshow in Luik (Belgium) and Little Miss Whizzbang's Scarlet Rivera aka Fenna aka her new nickname " Veni, Vidi, Vici  "

I always call Dustin my 'working' Flatcoat because he is not an offspring of 'show' breeding lines. But he can challenge and compete also at dogshows, thanks to his great ancestors like Neala's Jellyfish Kiss, Wizardwood MajorOak, Figor van de Demerbron, ....

His highlights this year concerning the hunting world were definitly his 2 MAP B degrees in The Netherlands

Thanks to Dustin, Little Miss Beauty 'Whizzbang's Scarlet Rivera' has learned so much about hunting and developed great hunting skills which resulted in super results on the gundog competition all over Belgium, The Netherlands and France.

Whizzbang's Scarlet Rivera had a fabulous year concerning dogshow, with 'the' highlight being awarded as BEST OF BREED at the Amsterdam Winner Show 2013, thanks to her great ancestors like Almanza I hate Mondays, Almanza Sweet Georgia Brown, Almanza Larry O'Grady, Whizzbang's Pina Colada, Almanza Crash'n Burn, .....

All of this was never possible without having the right friends next by my side who helped me also after my emergency surgery this summer, as help was needed!

Thank you all so very much and also a big thank you to all the honourable judges who have appreciated my dogs this year, both in the field as on the dogshows, and a big thank you to all the respactable breeders of Flatcoated Retrievers, antecedents of my 2 treasures!

Merry Christmas to you all !!!
