2006 in words and pictures:
Lara is for the second year in a row the most winning Aussie bitch in Denmark - despite her having started the showing only back in September due to her "maternity leave"!
The specialty club (KHKG) held their annual X-Mas show end November. A very very good day for us.... and a fine way to end 2006!
Creed won Best of Breed and won his first club CAC and Lara won Best Opposite. In the finals against the other breeds of the club, Lara won Best in Show #1 for the Best Opposite grouping and last but not least Creed won Best in Show #2 ! Tigger won 2nd winner and thus also his first CAC! Congratulations Anne - he looked great!
In the Breeder's Class the group of 4 Dreamcatcher's aussies won Best In Show #3!
Pebbles also joined the X-Mas show, but not for showing! She was there to participate in the Aussie Quadrille - dressed as a Reindeer !
There was an article about the Danish 10th Aussie Anniversary in the large US magazine "Dogs In Review" incl. pictures with praise of Rainbow and Tigger ! Mighty proud are we !
Jesper & Elvis (Dreamcatcher's Spiced Rum) in 2006 won the points necessary to advance to level B in DCH by passing the requirements 3 out of 6 times, and Elvis is thus a B-dog from next season. They also made it all the way to Club Champion in the C-class at DCH in Jyderup!
Miriam & Curie (Dreamcatcher's Always A Winner) is not yet participating in the DCH championships, but has won 96 out of 100 p in Rally-O, and they are thereby Club Champions in Rally-O at DCJ in Jyderup!
Way to go Miriam, Jesper, Elvis & Curie - we're proud of you!
Lara went Best Opposite and Creed 3rd winner at the DKK show in Herning in November!
graciously invited Creed to try out his instinct in herding sheep in
September. My oh my..... I had never ever expected him to do so well !
He instinctly and immediately seemed to know where to place himself like he had done this always, knew what the pressure zone was, how to keep them together, knowing how to let the more hardy sheep know who was the boss - without ever getting out of control. I was really moved to see him being so good and obviously also extremely happy and proud about it himself. During 2007 we hope to get some more experience with herding.
Lara, at the specialty club's show in October, won Best of Opposite as well as her last club CAC and thus became Club Champion! In the finals she further placed as Best in Show BOS #4! The picture is of Lara and two of her gorgeous puppies Murphy and Smilla!
celebrated the annual "Day of the Dog" in September. Creed and I joined
in the parade and met Creed's girlfriend Lucca.
|The DKK Show
in September was Lara's first show after having her puppies and she
celebrated her come back by winning Best Opposite and thereby also the
title as Copenhagen Winner for the 3rd year in a row! Creed placed as
4th winner male, and Dixie as 4th winner bitch.
Aussie Anniversary was celebrated in August!
A perfect day with perfect weather! Rainbow, our old girl of 9 years ended up winning it all by placing as Best Veteran (7-10 yrs), Best Brood Bitch, and Best of Breed!
Her son Tigger (Dreamcatcher's Tequila Sunrise) did just as well by winning Best of Opposite! Judge was Richard Hellmann from Italy (American professional handler, judge and aussie enthusiast).
club held their annual double-show in August in Jels. Pebbles won her
last club CAC and won the title as Club Champion. Creed placed 2nd
winner and got his last CAC and became Danish Champion!
|DKK held a
large 4-day show in July. Creed did very good by winning 2 CACs towards
his championship and placed 3 times as 2nd winner and once as 3rd winner!
came out from a long break from the showring. At DKKs show in Aalborg on June 17,
2006, she made her come back! She was so overjoyed to be out and about
again. She looked great and despite her almost 9 years of age won Best
Opposite very easily. In the finals she was also competing in the All Breed
Veteran (7-10 yrs) and made it to Best in Show Veteran (7-10 yrs). By doing
that she beat a lot of very nice dogs that are currently placed very high on
the point scale towards the title of "Veteran of the Year 2006"!
Curie (Dreamcatcher's Always A Winner) at her very first show (the KHKG show in Køge on May 21, 2006) won the prestigious BEST IN SHOW BABY! Miriam suddenly felt it had all been worth waiting for that day, and Curie (as you can see) was a happy tired puppy at the end of the day with all her loot!
Pebbles again went Best Opposite Sex as well as BIS BOS #3 Way to go!
|I and a friend Bitta went to St.Louis, USA on April 7 to - once again - attend the annual
Australian Shepherd Nationals!
A full week of hundreds and hundreds of aussies competing in herding, tracking, agility, obedience as well as in the showring.
And of course the opportunity to meet all our friends over there. As usual it was incredibly enjoyable with lots to learn.
This time I also had the chance to meet Creed's dam Envy, his sister Belli and one of his brothers Chrome as well as Lara's grandmom Chloe (picture left) and her brother Indy (picture right). Incredibly beautiful and sound dogs with amazing temperaments.
|Pebbles went Best Opposite Sex
as well as BIS BOS #3 at the KHKG show in Strib on March 26, 2006. Creed
placed as 3rd winner. Way to
Kite's puppies have now all left for their new homes. You can see pictures of
them on the puppy page! They have all gone to
great homes, for which we are grateful and they have all proven to be all we
hoped for with parents as sweet and beautiful as Lara and Kite. They
are all very well put together, physically and mentally.
|Creed's sister Belli, BIS AKC/ASCA
CH Halfmoon Embellishment, won a prestigious Best In Show at a show in
Indiana, USA. That is awesome - many congrats to Gwen, Chuck and Erin!

Birmingham to watch USA's top winning aussie win the breed, then the group
and last but not least Best In Show! Incredibly beautiful dog, incredibly
awesome show and an amazing possibility for shopping doggy things! I
literally spend 2-3 days just making sure I had seen everything in all
Angel, DKCH KLBCH NCH Dreamcatcher's Flying Encore, went to Norway, won BOS and became a Norwegian Champion. Many congrats to Bitta and Steff - we're very proud of you!
|A great day at
the DKK show in Odense! Pebbles went BOS being the only bitch who
qualified for final placing - and it was a show with a large attendance for
Danish standards! Creed was shown for the very first time in Denmark and was
placed as 2nd winner. He was so sweet and easy about it all and also among
the males a lot were sent out again due to a very strict judge, but Creed
stayed in the ring with only 2 others. Well done!
