2000 - was a super year!
The crowning conclusion of an exciting year was the Austrian Bundessieger-Show in Tulln - "Top Secret vom Österreichring" won the champion class with CACA/Club-CC (judge: Mr. Studenik, CZ), "Jamaica Blue vom Österreichring" (owners: Fam. Rosenthal) won the Junior class, as well as Bundesjugendsieger and Club-CC, at her very first show (judge: Mr. Pichard, CH).
He was the first Austrian bred dog, who came to the British shores under the Pet Travel Scheme (without quarantine), he was the first Cocker Spaniel not bred in UK, to be shown at a British Clubshow: "Top Secret vom Österreichring" won BEST IN SHOW in London-Chorleywood (judge Miss Lloyd-Carey)! Find here the detailed report of our journey to England!
At the event for the Austrian Champion of Champions 1999 (which took place in Tulln, in April 2000) "Top Secret vom Österreichring" won the group 8 under an international team of judges!
At the International Show in Graz (A) "Top Secret vom Österreichring" won the Champion Class, with CACA, Club-CC and CACIB, he was best male, BOB (Best of Breed) and finally was 3rd in group 8. My bitch "Royal Blue vom Österreichring" won RCACA and RCACIB.
The next day, at the Clubshow in Graz, "Top Secret vom Österreichring" again won in Champion Class with CACA and Club-CC, and was best Spaniel bred in this county. "Lucky Lips vom Österreichring" (owner Mrs. Pokorny) was best Veteran, Vet. CC, and beat by this "Hooligan vom Österreichring" (owners Fam. Hafner), who was best male in Veteranclass. "Jack Daniels vom Österreichring" (owner Dr. Kober) was best Cocker in Minor Puppy!

Our most important wins in 1999:
did the double!
At the International Show in Leipzig (judge Mr. Eberhardt from Germany) "Top Secret vom Österreichring" won the Champion class, got a VDH-CC, the Club-CC, and the CACIB, was best male and eventually BOB. My bitch "Royal Blue vom Österreichring" won the Open class, got the VDH-CC, the Club-CC and the CACIB, and she was best Cocker bitch! It does not happen very often, that a breeder wins both CACIBs with homebred dogs at one show. I was lucky to do this years ago in Opatija with "Hi! Jack of Hilltop" and his daughter "Pin-up-Girl of Hilltop", both owned by me, but bred by the unforgotten Rosemary Charrington! Who will get me down from cloud seven?
