Home for Irish Setter Lovers Around the World
06.06.2010 was a national event in Germany, because our German kennel club (VDH) had announced this day to be "the day of the dog" with meetings, parties and celebrations everywhere.
Surely Eli thought this was only because of the very special occasion of his second birthday !
He has started a really nice career in the fields, winning youngsters trial last year in april,
passing succesful a versatile field and water trial in september and
finally won a field trial open class with a first this year in april.
But apart from his talent in the field, he came home first in youngster class on shows in Detmold, Berlin and Ingelheim, last one including the title of Junior County Winner.
As a grown up, we started him beginning of may at the european winner show in dortmund and ...after 15 rounds around and around....he won his class with certificate !
Next day national show in Dortmund a first excellent with cert
was followed by a first exc and cert in Berlin and finally a first exc and cert near Bremen,
5 certificates within 14 days.
He has sired three litters in Czech Republic (Kennel Apoli Gwen) and Germany (Fighting Irish) and at our kennel with lovely Lohmann's Lawine with a total of 33 puppies.
He has been the star of a DVD that was done as a breed portrait from VDH and our club.
But most important...he has a heart of gold and one of the best characters and WE LOVE HIM !
Happy birthday boy !
Keep on running...
