Yet another year has come to its end, and we look back at a year with some highs but also with some lows.
This year our Foppa, C.I.B. Ch Spotdog's Instant Impact ended up as Top-3 and Best black-spotted Dalmatian in Sweden.
This year we were joined by two new bitches whose pedigrees goes back to our dogs but each with something new to bring to the equation. We imported the Foppa-daugther Tamilanda Instant Sparkle - Patsy, from Donna Whincup in the UK, and Lacillas Marmelade - Lexi, a daugther of the beautiful Lacillas Glory Days, moved all the way from Bleking to Skåne.
This years lowest point was when we had to make the difficult decision to let go of our darling Rocco - BISS C.I.B. NordCh KLBCh DEROJSG-13 Dalspots Coach Master. Rocco has given us so much, he was the best companion, a successful show and stud dog, and an incredible leader of our pack. I am proud to have bred him, and grateful to have owned him.
We attended fewer shows this year but still had some really nice results, and we got 2 new champions this year:
Kira is now SE & DK UCh DKJUCh NJV-19 DKJV-19 KBHV-19 KBHJV-19 Olrif Zone of Pure Love
Milton is now SE UCh Dalspots Inside Story

In addition, both World winners were sired by Spotdog's males (Ch Spotdog's Freaky Friday and Ch Spotdog's Instant Impact) and thereby grandchildren to two different Dalspots males (Sweetspots Top Gun and Ch Dalspots Coach Master). The collaboration between Dalspots and Spotdog's is productive!
