December 2011

Unlike what we did in the past years, this year we did not compete to place any given dog in the yearly rankings. We rather showed different dogs, starting or finishing their championships and, in the case of the Barbado, showing there are more colors other than just yellow. Still, the year’s balance is very positive for our dogs and dogs out of our breeding: 16 new titles in the three breeds, including several new champions in 4 countries; the #1 Barbado da Terceira in the Portuguese breeds ranking (Ali-Babá de Aradik); the #2 dog in Group 6 and #9 in the All-Breed ranking (the Drever A Striped Star de Aradik); 8 dogs qualified for Eukanuba Gold Winner 2011® (3 Barbados da Terceira, 1 Dachshund, 4 Drevers)! And the greatest meeting of Drevers of any show in the south of Europe ! :)

We haven’t updated our website for quite some time. To finish off the year in style, we decided to bring it up to date big time. We updated the dogs’ pages with the results of last months’ shows, created new pages for dogs out of our breeding that started competing, added information about the kennel and litters (Dachshund and Barbado da Terceira), rewrote the Barbado da Terceira texts, making them more informative and trying to answer some of the most frequently asked questions and added photos to the photo gallery. We have also been investing in different social networks. Please visit us and follow us there as well!

2010 ended with our Becas de Aradik becoming BOB'10 - Best of Breed in 2010. It was the first time this title was awarded to the Barbado da Terceira. And for the 3rd year in a row, the top ranking Barbado da Terceira has been co-campaigned or owned by us. And it has been a single continuous family line, based on Emanuel Vieira’s amazing male Pastor. In 2008, that honor belonged to his daughter Duquesa-B, Ch Port, PW08, LW08, MW08 (owned by Dédalo Henrique), a dog which decisively set a turning point on how the breed was viewed in the Portuguese dog scene (she was also an unprecedented #3 in the Portuguese breeds ranking). In 2009, it was her son, Figo, JLW08, PW09, Ch Port, Gib, Es (pend. conf.) and in 2010 the highest ranking Barbado (even if she missed a few shows) is his daughter Becas de Aradik, LPW09, BOB'10, from our own breeding!
