It has just dawned on me that Kaatje hasn't been in the ring this year

August 2010  - Southern Golden Retriever Club
                                - Robyn Brown (Aust)
                                -  2nd place NZ Bred Bitch (in the ring with NO clothes)

Critique:  "Balanced girl throughout, pleasing eye.  Fell away to the croup."

August 2010 -  Southern Golden Retriever Club 
                               - Chris Graham (NZ)
                               -  2nd place NZ Bred Bitch (in the ring with NO clothes)

February 2010

The Riverstone family went on holiday down to Dunedin and then back up to Ashburton and of course there were some shows  :o)

Two all breeds shows in Dunedin and Kaatje took both BCCs, then the Gundog show and Kaatje took BCC, BOB and Reserve Best in Show.  What a lovely weekend the weather was lovely and all the dogs went very well.

Then  it was the Ashburton shows and another two BCC and a BOB to add to Kaatje's collection - not bad five shows and five BCC 

November 2009 - Southern Golden Retriever Club - 
                                        - Gillian Wicklow (UK)
                                        - 3rd place NZ Bred Bitch ( in the ring with NO clothes)

May 2009 - Southern Golden Retriever Club
                         -  Jeffery Pepper (USA)
                         - 2nd placed NZ Bred Bitch

Critique:  "Another pretty bitch, with good head, good forechest and balanced angulation front and rear combine with strong level topline.  Compact outline with strong, short loin.  Another very good mover."

October 2008 - Southern Golden Retriever Club - 4th placed Junior Bitch
                                    Marilynn Morphet
Critique: " Lovely head carriage. Short coupled and level topline creating a gorgeous outline. Moved soundly like those above.  Another beautiful bitch who completed the placings in the strongest class of the day."
It really was a lovely class and I'm proud to have Kaatje place and for these young bitches to be acknowledged by this comment:
" If these bitches produce themselves or better the breed in the South Island is certainly in good shape for the future"
October 2008 - Southern Golden Retriever Club - Junior in Show
                                         - Shona Prebble (Canterbury)
September 2008 - Malvern Kennel Association - Bitch Challenge
                                                                                                                - Best of Breed
                                                                                                                - Best of Group
                                                                                                                - Junior in Show
At this show Kaatje obtained her Champion Title - and didn't she do it in STYLE!!
August 2007 - Southern Golden Retriever Club - Puppy in Show
                                   Lei Taft (Hawaii)
Easily won her class. Balanced, correct angulation, sound coming and going. Level topline and nice, moderate style.
I was so proud of Kaatje at this show, she was pulled out as one of the top five bitches and run with the "big girls" for the challenge (including her mother, who was awarded the challenge).
