••• March

Lenny's debut in intermediate class (15-24 months) at the International Show in Luxembourg was rewarded with excellent 1 and his first point for the Luxembourgian Champion titel.

The isle is calling! We are on the way to the 125. Crufts jubilee show. 22000 entered dogs in four days, among them 192 Gordon Setters and Lenny being one of them. New Lord Lennox gained place 4 in special junior class. Again it was impressing to enter the rings with the green carpets, to have many interesting chats and to look for suitable stud dogs for future litter plannings.

Kharisma's hormonal duel with Jeebee spiced up our trip... Yes, she was prepared for mating, so no rest for me. So, after Crufts Kharisma and me started our trip to the chosen one immediately, living in the German Ruhrgebiet. The excitement is big: Will she also be enthusiastic about him? Yes, Karymoor's First Born In Summertime – called Fergie – passed Kharisma's "endurance exams" and it all ended in a love marriage under a icy and starry sky.
Now we must keep fingers crossed the mating was successful and we will see a confirmed pregnancy by ultrasound soon… more infos to come here: puppies.

Lenny who slumbered it all away started at the CACIB Genk as it was planned, and yeah – he came home with excellent 1, Junior BOB and Crufts qualification 2017. Now he is also Belgian Junior Chmapion.

More excellent news: New Lord Lennox Beautiful Darkness was officially rated HD-B1. Now the young man has completed his breeding permission.
