Oh my god what a year Riverstone had in 2008.  What was thes best?  Well we can choose between:
 
  • Mieka taking Best Gundog two days in a row, firstly under a highly respected Golden Retriever breeder then under Internationally renouned Gundog judge and Labador breeder?
  • Kaatje obtaining her Champion title and then going Best Gundog and Junior in Show?
  • Mieka going Reserve Best in Show at the Southern Golden Retriever Club?
  • Jarno obtaining his Champion title in fine style at the large Canterbury Kennel Club Shows?

OR

  • The first frozen semen litter by CH Glentreve Dream-of-Swift being produced by Mieka in December?
 
I think they were all very exciting - but that's not all that happened, all the kids did really well in the show ring with the results below:-
