Christmas Winner Show, Netherlands

That life is not always easy was something that became abundantly clear to me this week. I had to make the tough decision to either go to the funeral of one of my mentors or show my dogs at the biggest Dog show of the Netherlands, Spot’s “goodbye” show. It was a decision I didn’t take lightly and Victor was never far from my mind today.

Carmichael’s Hector Camacho went Best puppy in breed at age of 6 months.

Carmichael’s Bite the Bullit won Best Junior in Breed, handled by his co-owner John Spronck.

Ducipal T-Bone of Carmichaels won Reserve Best Male, handled by Sabrina Hoks.

Ch. Carmichael’s Liar Liar Pants on Fire won Best of Breed and 2e in a very competitive terriergroup!

Breed and groupjudge was terrierspecialist Mr. Torsten Himmrich.
“Spot” was shown this year only 4 times. At the other three shows she went:
* Reserve BIS at Top Dog of the Year Show Netherlands
* Reserve BIS at Int. Dogshow Eindhoven
* Best in Show Dutch National Amstaf Speciality.

The Amsterdam Winner Show

A lot of mixed feelings and emotions at the moment.….
Sometimes you have to pause for a little and realize how special certain moments and people truly are in your life.
This weekend it will be “Spot’s” last show, the same show where she started her career in 2015 – Our Dutch biggest dog show The Amsterdam Winner.
Looking back at an truly great day where Spot became Best minor puppy in Show from 61 other minor puppy’s in the main ring under Mr. Vyguzov.
For the breed the bitches were judged by Mr. Dick Baars and Males & BOB was done by Mr. Victor van Raamsdonk in 2015.
Almost exactly 4 years later Victor van Raamsdonk passes, Victor made a true impact on my cynological career and has been there to support me during the good but more particular in the hard times.
Victor has taught me to persevere, don’t give up when the going gets tough and keep your head up. Will cherish these memories for ever.
