Crufts 2009 was a great event. Actually I think probably the best atmosphere ever for this show. This might not have been good for the organisers as there were less public attending and you could walk around freely but for the exhibitors it was great.
As a kennel, dogs bred by us had a great day.
Dog CC Ch Sassicaia’s Scottish Ebony of Zima owned by Simon & Sheila Luxmoore
Bitch Res CC Sassicaia’s Angelica for Chatanika (Paul & Linda Robertson)
1st yearling dog Deshka’s Togo Dyr at Sassicaia
Res Post Grad dog Sassicaia’s river of Dreams for Chatanika (Paul & Linda Robertson)
3rd Limit Dog Jedeye Namo of Manitou at Sassicaia
2nd Open Dog Ch Sassicaia White Mist at Ceannabeine (Hugh & Judy Wakker)
1st Vetaran Bitch, Ch Alaskan’s latasha of Anadyr at Sassicaia
Not forgetting the numerous other dogs placed either out of our stud dogs or females but especially the Bitch CC winner and Best of Breed CH MARALLAN LAUREL JW (Anthony Rees) who is a Nelson daughter.
We are now making plans for breeding two litters this year. Lucy will have a final litter and will be mated to Nemo. Smartie (Sassicaia’s Sun Princess) will be bred and are both due in season in the next few weeks. Both Lucy and Smartie run lead with Lucy being known to most around the show and working scene in the UK. Smartie is a Lucy x Nelson daughter who is slightly shy but really great in harness. We look forward to having some puppies around for the summer.
