Champion Austmans Mandalay Bay wins Bitch CC & BEST OF BREED for her owners Bill & Janina Britton. Roxy, pictured, is the second direct generation of Austmans to win a CC at Crufts after her dam Ch Austmans Chases Dreams. Her Uncle Ch/Am Ch Austmans Ground Control also has won this accolade at Crufts 2007. A consistency to our line we are very proud of.
The joys of the day continued when Austmans Kung Fu Blu ShCM won BEST VETERAN IN BREED for her owner Jeri Omlo. Our own Austmans Never Have I Ever won BEST PUPPY IN BREED, and Ch Austmans Finn McMissile (a previous Crufts Best of Breed winner himself) won a super RCC.
It takes years of dedication to produce a kennel of dogs so consistent at this level of competition. It becomes a way of life! A life I would not change for the world even though there can be many a heartbreak mixed in with such joys.
The friendships we have made become much more than just selling someone a dog. Through our dogs families we become family and without this extended family we could not achieve all that we do. Thank you all, you know who you are!
