2011 in balance: 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 ! :)
