My apologies for lack of news, we are always busy here with the dogs even if I forget to share what we've been up to! 2019 saw us take Top Breeder again. We also took equal Top ACD with our red boy, Ch Austmans Iron Man. Top Stud, Top Brood Bitch & Top Puppy 2019 all went to Austmans too. What a fabulous year that was!
2020 started so well!! At Manchester Ch Austmans Finn Mcmissile won his 32nd CC & Best of Breed, and his daughters Ch Austmans Never Have I Ever & Ch Austmans Good Call won the CC & RCC respectively in the bitch classes. His grandson Austmans Rocky Balboa won the RCC in dogs and went on to win Best Puppy in Breed.
At CRUFTS, from an entry of over 30, Ch Austmans Finn McMissile took Best Veteran in Breed and his grandson Austmans Master of Disaster (Pictured), owned by Francesco Bianchi & handled by Roberta Semenzato, won the RCC (Reserve Best Dog) from the Junior class.
Since Crufts the shows have had to stop due to Covid 19 but we've been enjoying the weekends with the dogs at home and out in our local countryside. We are now enjoying visitors again at the weekends too. I feel very lucky that my life has not been affected by the pandemic, I get to enjoy the company of our wonderful dogs all day every day in our little patch of the world.
Stay safe everyone xx
