Very proud of our first black Dutch Champion:

In only 6 shows this boy finished his Dutch title. He had already won a group and today he finished his title in style Best Male, BOB & Group#3
Our young Norwegian boy Showline Signature (Mats) took his 2nd Junior CAC and was also again awarded the Res CAC. Bred by Knut Blutecher.

It was a real Enzo day as two of his daughters both finished 2nd in the BIS line-ups for Minor Puppy and for Puppy.

So we are home after a fab-u-lous Dutch Winner Show 2022 this time in Leeuwarden. The whippet entry of 37 was excellent and there were some really nice classes this year.
We could definately not complain about our results. Jill is still at home with her pups but Mats, Ash and Trouble did just great!! Mats (Showline Signature) was entered for the first time in Junior Class and was awarded 1Ex, Junior Winner and Reserve Best Male at only 10 months old. Trouble (Silkridge Ohno Trouble) was awarded 2Ex in a very nice Open Class But star of the day was definately Ash ( CA Thistle Be Perfect) who also from Junior Class was awarded 1Ex, Junior Winner, Dutch Winner and Best Of Breed!! With her win she became a Dutch Junior Champion.
A big thank you to our judge Joao Vasco Poças from Portugal. She then was in the selection in the Adult group 10 ( Judge Anita Gielisse), but the kicker came later on when Judge Tatjana Urek from Slovenia awarded her 1st in Junior Group 10 and finally.... Dutch Winner 2022 "JUNIOR BEST IN SHOW"
Needless to say we had a great time and a huge thank you to Renee Metselaar for stepping in last minute and look after everyone at home.

After Crufts and the European Dogshow in Paris, Jill has now also won the CAC and BEST IN SHOW at the 2022 Whippet World Congres Speciality Show in Padenghe sul Garda, Italy, out of an entry of 153 whippets !! We are so proud of her winning her 3rd major event in a row.
Thank you so much to all the judges thinking so highly of her. Open class bitch and CAC judge Yvonne Hull and BIS referee Bo Bengtson.

Also in the judging of the males we had lots to celebrate when Jill's half brother Enzo (CA Black & Decker) was awarded 2nd in Open class with the reserve CAC by judge Ann Beckett-Bradshaw.
We are very proud of our black boy Enzo!!

Also our young girls Ash (CA Thistle Be Perfect) and Tits ( West Chelan Tjeckpoint Tjarley) were both placed in big classes. Ash 4th in puppy bitch by judge Iva Kimmelman and Tits 3rd in intermediate bitch by judge Yvonne Hull.

The 2nd showday Jill was judged by mr Thomas Münch who also awarded Jill the bitch CAC and with that result Jill becomes, as far as we know, the 1st Dutch whippet ever to gain the Italian Championship title .

It was so good to see so many good old friends and to have made a few new ones as well. It was a wonderful show weekend.
Many thanks and complimenti to the Italian organising committee led by Arnaldo Cotugno.
Szalánczi Gábor thank you for this lovely picture.

Don't know what to say really but what a fabulous day at The Whippet Club show in Coventry....
Jill (Crème Anglaise's Irish Cream) just won her 4th CC and topped it off with a Best In Show
The day got even better when young Julian ( Crème Anglaise's Just Julian) out of minor puppy dog, won best Puppy dog and continued to win Best Puppy In Show at his debut. Julian is currently in the care off and is handled by Colette Perkins.
A huge thank you to our breed specialist judges. Our respected dogs judge today was Editha Newton (Nevedith) and  our respected bitch judge today was Henrik Härling (SWE) (Play a While).


A lovely critique for Jill from Henrik Härling, judge at The Whippet Club CH show.
Open Bitch
1. Akerboom & Van Der Schaaf’s Crème Anglaise’s Irish Cream.
Wow, wow. As soon as she entered the ring she caught my eye. Very rarely you have the opportunity as a judge to examine a bitch like this.
Overall so well built and so extremely well balanced and as the icing on the cake a tremendous sidegait and true coming and going.
Presented in gleaming condition. What is there not to like about her?
