This passed year has been nothing like any other year. Virtually no dog shows to attend, no litter this year due to a failed insemination, and lots of time to think about the future.
Our young boy Foppa (Spotdog's Instant Impact) had some nice results this year despite the pandemic, 2x BOB + certificates in 3 countries and his 1st CACIB. He also sired his 1st litter, in Belgium, and we look forward following their development.
We have new plans for 2021 that we are very excited about, and hope the vaccines will make a difference for the world regarding the pandemic.
On this last day of the year we took some new pictures of our dogs at our summer house in Skummeslöv. Enjoy!
Today our Kira (Olrif Zone of Pure Love) gave birth to her first litter, and this litter is with her co-owner Amanda Sjöland, kennel All About Spots. Five bitches and 4 males, all black, no deaf, no patches and no blue eyes.
Finally back in the show ring again, this time at Rostock IDS. Spotdog's Instant Impact was BOB with CACIB first time out in intermediate class. He also gained the title "Sieger Rostock 2020". Judge was breed specialist Petra Rotsch and 31 Dalmatians entered.
Yet another online dog show, this time the Swedish Dalmatian Club. The judge was Helle Höie from Norway. This time DKJUCH Dalspots Hot Gossip did really well by becoming BOS!!
The super slow moving online show "Global Dog Show Game 2020" continues and our junior male Spotdog's Instant Impact continue to do well!!! He placed Group-1 for group 6 and Group-1 for junior group 6!! The judge was Marina Scott from the UK.
Still no dog shows to attend, so we entered another online dog show - Global Dog Show Game 2020. Just for the fun of it. And what results we got!!! These are the placements of our 10 dogs among 148 Dals entered!!! We at kennels "Dalspots", "Spotdog’s" and "All About Spots" are proud of our joint efforts over the last couple of years! Thank you to the judge Helle Høie , kennel Spotnik, Norway.
