Still Going Strong!
My girl, Intske Anke fan de Moaie Hôvingen, has a lot to look up to! Her GREAT GRANDMOTHER, of whom she is named after, is 13 and still winning at International dog shows!!
Just this past weekend, Nanna Anke vd Eenhoornleijn earned Bitches CAC and Veteran at the Dogshow Maastricht, a show with 3,000 competitors and judges from 11 countries.
Anke is now a new Dutch Veteran Champion and Dutch Champion!
She wasn't the only winner from Stabijkennel fan de Moaie Hôvingen, either!
Intske's grandfather, Anton Jelmer Fan De Moaie Hôvingen was CAC and Best Veteran for the males, Maiko Sjobbe Fan De Moaie Hovingen earned Reserve CAC and the CACIB, and the newest member of the family Milomiss Northern Lights Tuuletar won Best Puppy. And that was just Saturday's Results under judge O'Brien from Ireland.
For those that are not familiar with these titles, here is a brief description:
CAC = Certificat d’Aptitude au Champion; Certificate of Aptitude to the National Beauty Contest. Of course, Reserve is the second place dog.
CACIB = Certificat d’Aptitude au Championnat International de Beaute; Certificate of Aptitude to the International Beauty Contest.
