Thusday 18th of April 22, 2013
Of we went to the Hunt Test held a Dunlap, TN just a wee bit north of Chattanooga
Shadow was in the first junior brace and got a redhead as by dog as his partner was in heat. He did me proud with his style but unfortunately time runs short and he did not find a bird, both judges gave me kind compliments about him. The day was unbelievable hot for that time of the year at least between 25 to 30 C. A number of dogs later in the day has had to face a lot of heat during their runs. Our little Destiny did well but got not qualified.

Where to start as so many things happened recently in Shadow’s life
What started as a fun trip to Shadow’s Scottish roots continued with flying upon the big sea to end up at Rhonda’s farm in Kentucky. Shadow: gosh I’m sure they do not want me to become aFarm dog – guess I might end up in US show rings shortly . Some special coat treatments started already immy after I arrived. Watch out for me ….
Shadow was not travelling alone as 4 of his half siblings from Mum’s Heather second litter joined him.Somerled Saint Kilda only upto Germany and Millie, Cooper and TRex flying in the crate next to Shadow to New York JFK. From there we ride down to Kentucky and only after a short stay thepuppies went to their final homes, Cooper to Michigan, Millie to Minnesota and TRex still at the farm.
Thank you Eileen and Sheila to make it a stay we always will remember

What a great journey we had. Welcome our US guest Rhonda Cornum already in Germany and get her to grooming job on our four legged exhibitors.
Spending already the day before Gundog day at the NEC for all the of course necessary shopping’s and meet up with friends from different places in the world. For me it was a thrill to take my friends from Zimbabwe for their first visit to Crufts, entered into Hall 1 was as far as they came, there was their favourite breed in the ring – German Middle Spitz.
As Rhonda was holding speeches at Downing Street the same day we got a very late night with a lot of giggles and glasses of red wine.
We had Glen for Veteran class means the early starting class. Pick up of Mr. Dyde at 06:00 worked perfect, so at 07:00 we entered Hall 1. No traffic jams even so it was a Friday morning.
Make it short – we had entered 4 dogs and take home with us 3 rosettes, what lovely day.
Thank you to the judge Miss J. Osborn.

Willow and Amber
Nationale Dog Show Kassel Dec 10th, 2011
judge Mr. Rolf Blessing, DE
Shadow out of intermediate class (similar yearling in UK) went Exc1, another ticket toward his German Champion and the CAC for the BOB.
Also competing against his Grandma Amber ... Ladies First .. Amber went BOB
Shadow’s critique from Setter & Pointer, Coventry :
Dt.Ju.Ch. Some Rock A Fella. Appealing expression with dark eyes but head still needs to finish, good forehand assembly showing ample forechest, deep and well ribbed up, good bend of stifle but would like more width of thigh, covers the ground well on a good stride, rather proud of his tail
Shadow has his official hip score- 3/5=8
05.11.2011 First in Yearling at Setter and Pointer Club Championship Show at Coventry in England.
Shadow is leaving the junior classes today. He is 18 months old.
Sure we will have loads of fun in the coming years in the fields
as well as in the show rings
