The same weekend on June 16th, 2019 one of my favorite girls in USA finished her AmCh !

Sylvanus Athena At Munroc. Congratulations all involved. Still think with a big smile handling her at the GSCA National 2 years ago in Frankenmuth. Well done Athena.

A long Holiday weekend for ‘White Sunday/Monday’ I was invited to come and present  our breed at the british days held at castle Remmeringhausen. 2 days with sooo many people interested in our breeds. As it was the first time we got invited we had 7 Irish Setter and 4 Gordons with us. Brando Mr Mischief broke the leash jumped in the pond and found the ducks of another exhibitor … ducks rushed into the pond and where just better swimmer than him. Thankfully all, dog & ducks came back into there places without being harmed too much, at least the dam Gordon smiled over his innocent face.

Handling Raina for 2nd in open and the star of the day again was Miss Vegas gaining her 2nd CC

Starting celebrating at our Hotel in Stoneleigh we got the horrible news of the sudden death of our friend Petra Rudloff. She run so many shows in Germany for the Verein für Pointer and Setter as well always gave a helping hand to the VDH if needed. Petra we still can’t believe what happened.  R.I.P. you are missed by so many.


As I was running the 2 days show in Bremen we had a least a chance to rush out to Belgium for the Belgium Gordon Setter Club Show held in Wommelgem on Sept 1

6th,2018. Judge : Mrs C Pelka / DE

Marlon his first show in puppy got VP2

Brando won intermediate class and finished with the resCAC

Thank you BeGSC for a lovely day out.


Amsterdam … the World Dog Show 2018 .. showing over 3 days in a row. Had taken the girl gang from Amscot home with me after National Gundog to get them ready for the WDS weekend. Rhonda was flying in from USA to help me with grooming of the gang. Entries where booked long ahead, Hotel reservations done, flights for Rhonda and Cheryl sorted, Jean and Godfrey booked in as well in AMS and the drive home for the girls organized. YES the beautiful so much missed rosette won by Vegas from National gundog was a found in the very first folding crate I opened up 😊 sorry James taking all the blame on your shoulders for quiet a time.

Now Lets compare the 3 days in a short way

Brando – he won his intermediate class each day with Exc 1

Vito – he won Veteran Class every day and got 2 x Best Veteran of breed as well as Veteran World winner and his NL Veteran Champion title.

Sissi got 2 x 2nd and 1 x 3rd in a very strong intermediate class shown first time on international showgrounds. She was flying home to USA with Cheryl the day after the shows.

OMG and now Vegas again : she won intermediate class all 3 days BUT on day 3 at the WDS under Mr. Wil Hochstenbach she topped it all …World Winner 2018 CAC, CACIB and BOB

Raina 2 seconds and the class winner on day 2

Let me use Rhondas notice on the girls :

We had the privilege to groom both of Jean Collins’ bitches Raina (CIE/FCI,DtCh Storskogens Amor Joy Of Amscot) and her daughter, Vegas (Amscot Love Is In The Air JW), before and during the show.  Silvia showed Raina all three days. And while she won the champion class 1 of three days, it was Vegas who was the star, going BOB over 68 at the actual World Dog Show. The judges commented “she is perfectly balanced, and not extreme, in any way”. What a complement!

 I might add that both Raina and Vegas were represented in field trials all spring, and will be again for the fall season.

With heavy heart we have to report the sad news of Patrick’s passing on Saturday March 10th, 2018. He fought a long time but had no chance against this cancer beast.

We spend a wonderful weekend in UK meeting old friends in Oxford and Evesham. Thank you Lorraine & Mum Jean, Mary, Bert & Rob Dyde. It is as always so good to see you and share our gossips. Gundog day was a blast as always so much love that crazy atmosphere. Sorry Jean ! but finally I found people for the Chardonnay so it was not waste to carry him in. An early start for us as Vito was in the first class of the day, Veterans and the day started with winning the class. So much love this boy, thank you to all the compliments he got. I loved to collect the hugs from so many of you. A short breath and than it was young Brando’s turn in junior class – he behaved himself and we went home with a blue rosette 2nd place. Later Vito earned best Veteran in breed. The girls did us proud and showed so well. Now let the pictures speak. More pictures you can find on my Facebook page


Saturday March 3rd, 2018

Entered little sweetheart Brando in Belgium – Thank you Leen and the Bournefield gang for an always great company and we never will lose weight with all the goodies you offer. That young feller was unbelievable in the breed ring still a bit overdone, he went first in the main ring with all the other junior winners of the day, guess we had a group of 40 junior all breeds in the ring. Wouw he got shortlisted under the last 8. Later the day gaining as well the BOB we went back to the main ring for the Group 7 competition. Having a 16-month-old boy I did not expect anything. Suddenly we made the cut and MAMAMIA he got the Group 2 placement. Thanks to honorable judge Mr Krol/PL.

CACIB Nuernberg Jan 14th, 2018

I’ve taken the ride down to Nuernberg when I found out that Vito whom I rarely show in Germany is short of 1 ticket only for his DtCh(VDH). So, we tried our chances and it worked.

Vito finished the day with Exc1 AnwVDH, CAC/CACIB, BOB and a group 2. Our judge Mrs Alenka Pokorn had a lot of kind words on young Brando’s movement and he got as well his junior ticket and the junior BOB. Thank you Alenka and it was good to see so many people from that area whom we do not meet too often due to the distances. A lovely day.

Planned this show venue for some good reasons, the honorable breed judge Mrs Diane Stewart-Ritchie and it was on the way to drive to UK taking Raina home after her stay to finish her European titles DtCh(VDH) and the famous intern Champion CIE (FCI). Which again she deserved in the first shows we went earlier before the WDS in Leipzig. Let’s come back to Kortrijk. A lovely entry in Gordons and wouw all my team players won their classes and got their tickets. Finally, I even needed help in the breed ring for the BOB as Raina has had to compete against Vito. Thank you, Stephano, to handle Vito for me. The BOB went to Raina and we girls moved forward to the main ring. Group 7 got called in and we tried to show her beautiful movement. Group judge Mr Achtergael/BE gave us the best chance of the day and yes my crazy girl made it ! She won the group! After winning the French National in 2016 guess this was our next biggest win in Europe. Thank you, Jean, to allow her to stay we me from time to time. Can’t wait to see her again soon.
