We have had an amazing day at the Dutch Dog of the Year Show for 2022.
First Jill (Creme Anglaise's Irish Cream) won Best in Group judged by Mr. Mark Wibier, later in the afternoon Best in Show was judged by Mrs. Nadia Timmermans - Kadenko and she awarded Jill Reserve Best In Show.
Big heartfelt Congratulations to Kees Versluis and Richard for winning BIS with their lovely Standard Longhair Dachshund and to all the other group winners and runners up.

IT'S OFFICIAL JILL IS TOP WHIPPET UK 2022
Our Jill (UK Champion Crème
Anglaise’s Irish Cream) has done it !! Top Whippet of the UK in the Our Dogs
Jill was home bred out of Crème Anglaise’s Pantomime
(Sophie), sired by Collooney Black Comet (Comet). Jill is the first whippet from
The Netherlands and the first non-UK-resident Whippet to pull this off. We were
only able to do 8 of the 41 CC shows for whippets when we took her out of the
ring mainly because we wanted her to have a litter. The results put her in the
lead firmly by August, but in the end it was a pretty close finish. We are over
the moon that she managed to pull it off.
