A One's Cocker Spaniels

6-7 November 2004 - Herning Denmark (Nordic Winner 2004) & Växjö International
A tremendous weekend for the children and grandchildren of
VDHCH DECH SU(u)CH NordV 2003 KBHV 2004 Midnight Train Vom Rauhen Holz!

At Växjö International, Hansi and his beautiful children won BEST PROGENY GROUP IN SHOW under
Mrs Rita Kadike-Skadina
from Latvia, international, all-breed judge AND BREED SPECIALIST AND President of The Latvian Spaniel Club!
How many judges with that combination are there in the world?
What a wonderful new acquaintance! A credit to her club and country for sure! Her warm and hearty hugs kept us all warm the long way home.
And thanks for being so sweet and gentle with our beloved dogs! We do hope to come to Riga under Mr Tabo!

In today's winning progeny group were:
SU(u)CH SV03 Manaca's On The Road (BOB)
Backhills For Your Eyes Only
(CAC, 2nd Best Dog, CHAMPION today!)
Backhills Harmony And Piece and
SU(u)CH NUCH Backhills Farah Diba

SVCH Manaca's On Duty
(2nd best Open Class dog next to Backhills For Your Eyes Only)

Not an easy task to select FOUR out of these beautiful cockers, since they are all very very good dogs, in every way!
I am positive that ANY combination of the above offspring would have won the BIS Progeny Group today!

Hansi's son Backhills For Your Eyes Only (out of SU(u)CH NUCH NordV 2003 SV03 Backhills Doris Day, what a litter!)
won his 3rd CAC & 2nd Best Dog. Which means Swedish SHOW CHAMPION today! Hansi has now 16 Champion sons and daughters.
Congratulations to Egon's owner Ann-Marie Ostrenius and his breeders Britt-Marie & Karin Staaf!

Hansi's nephew SU(u)CH NUCH A One's Borkum Riff was 3rd Best Dog.

A One's Eleonora, the way she looked at Herning and Växjö on November 6-7, 2004

Hansi's granddaughter A One's Eleonora (by GBSHCH ESCH Lennoxgrove Sadly Sober out of
VDHCH DT BSG 2000 WW 2003 SU(u)CH Blue Satin Forever A One's) was 4th Best bitch (86 cockers entered to the show) from junior class at Växjö.
Judge wrote: "Lovely blue roan with feminine head and soft expression. Excellent angulation. Well developed body for her age.
Lovely condition. Moves well. Merry tail-action. Covering the ground well."

POLJCH Great Georgia Vom Rauhen Holz

Sulcek, kennel "z Vejminku".
My warmest hugs to Georgia's owner Andrzej & breeders Doris Junge & Sandra Radomski!

Sorry, Karin, that I missed the fact that NZCH Backhills In Every Way is also a NEW ZEELAND CHAMPION but nobody informed me.

And as if this was not enough, SU(u)CH SV03 Manaca's On The Road went off to win ANOTHER Best of Breed a week later, at Grängesberg!
