Well we are again on cloud nine after our return from France!
The French Clubmatch is undoubtedly
the pinnacle of the dogue showing world and after this weekend we feel we must say something about how honored we are to take what we did with our dogues from a huge entry of over 250 Dogue de Bordeaux! The wins at this show mean the world to us and for these world class judges to think so much of our dogs was unbelievable and unforgettable and we would like to thank them from the bottom of our hearts for thinking so highly of our team "Thank you!"
We have never had a critique from a judge like we had from Mr Bas Bosch when commenting on Skye, he even told the whole crowd that he spoke only a few words about her because there were no words to describe this superb female.
We are overjoyed that Skye took Best In Show and of course Jimmy taking the male CAC but to win 5 classes in a row was such an exciting time for us.... Firstly our young puppy "TommyGun" then Jack, Skye, Storm and Jimmy did it too.... This was TommyGun's first show and Storms too in Europe so for Storm to take Reserve Best Female/RCAC at this huge event with so much wonderful competition was very emotional. TommyGun "Ebon" was such a star too, being only 5 months old traveled all the way from England and we just made his class with seconds to spare and he was dream in the ring, he then went on to take Best Male puppy in show from all the males up to 12 months old so we were beaming with pride.
