Top Toller Competitions(January 08, 2016)
The Our Dogs and Dog World Newspapers run several competitions with their sponsors each year and I am very proud to announce the following;
Top Toller Brood Bitch 2015 - Koda (Shoredancer Sea Pink Via Riverwatcher) has won this for the 3rd year running. Bittersweet as the notification arrived just days after I lost this wonderful girl.
Joint Top Toller Breeder 2015 - This is the 2nd year I have been placed as the Top Toller Breeder although this year I share the honour with another breeder.
Joint Top Toller Puppy 2015 - Kyte (Lux Junior Ch Riverwatcher Pikpaktuk JW, BJWLU'15) shares this honour with Conner (Erikachen Conaire at Tollisty JW). Both are worthy winners of this honour and it is lovely that a bitch puppy and dog puppy have shared the award this year.
It's been an amazing year with lots of highs and lows - the highs being winning the court case, Kyro becoming a Lux Ch and Int Show Ch (pending FCI confirmation) , also winning RBIS at Mid Herts Gundog Show, Koda earning her well deserved Studbook Number and Kyte's Junior Warrant Award and Studbook number and not forgetting the above awards.
The lows have been the false friends highlighted by the court case, and the very extreme low of the loss of Koda.
