Norwegian Irish Red and White Setter of the year 2008

Toboggans Amazing Skadi was awarded the Norwegian Irish Red and White Setter of the year 2008, due to our results in field trial. The prize was a beautiful trophy, given by Terry O'Leary/The motherclub in Ireland. If we can win it in 2009 and 2010 (3 times), it's ours to keep permanently. We will do our best :)
