Happy holidays!

We would like to wish our readers and friends a Merry Christmass and a Happy New Year. It has been a very good year for us because of our friends in- and out-side the ring.

Inside the ring a few nice placings with Beren, including a first in Limit at the Club Show. That means Beren has his Stud Book Number, which is very pleasing.

Another good result was a few weeks ago at BUBA, when Marcy won her first CC.

Outside the ring, we have enjoyed good company and conversation with old and new friends. Many times we have stayed late to watch the goings-on in the big ring while talking about matters canine over a glass.

We hope this will continue.

Crufts 2015

We were at Crufts on Sunday and enjoyed ourselves tremendously. There were so many visitors from the continent and one from the United States.

Julia and Wiggins made it along with Alby and George (owned and showed by Naomi Forrest). Here is George in the ring

So the Tolutim connection did well as George was Best Puppy in the breed and Alby was second to George.

Wiggins was placed in Limit (4th) while Beren did not get placed in Midlimit.

The Thorners came with Molly and Marcy. Marcy got a second in Limit while Molly did not get placed. Zaffre was fifth in her Veteran class.

Crufts allows us to see a number of dogs which don’t ordinarily appear locally (especially those foreign dogs). So it is interesting for breeders to visit, watch the many classes and dogs, and exhibit their own dogs, comparing them with the best shown during the year as well as the european dogs.
