News 2017

31 December

Another year has passed, and also this year we had some nice successes in the show ring both in Sweden and abroad. We also had a new litter that we were very pleased with and excited about.

 

During 2017 we fulfilled the requirements for C.I.B. for 3 of our dogs: Rocco by winning CACIB in Norway, Samba by winning CACIB in Germany and Athos by winning CACIB in Poland.

Our Maya finished the year by becoming a Swedish champion and thereby also a Danish, Norwegian and Nordic champion.

Rocco also completed the Danish Club champion title.

 

This year again our dogs had some nice wins at Club shows, they won 2x BOB and 1x BOS at Dalmatian Club shows in Sweden, Denmark and Norway. The most rememberable show was day 2 at the Swedish Club shows in Tånga Hed - the Ann-Marie Hammarlund Memorial Club show where our Maya - Ch Orion's Belt Claim to Fame was BOB with CAC for the second year in a row. Athos-son Delicate Designs Ymer was BOS + CAC, like his father last year. Judge this year was Åke Cronander, kennel Albicans.

 

We did not have any top placements on the Swedish Top Dalmatian list this year, but our Maya placed as Top-7 and Athos-son Delicate Deigns Ymer placed as Top-9, being top-black male for 2017.
