shortlisted in the group (it was just 7 left),
but unfortunately he didn't placed ... We had a very nice trip traveling
together with Diablo's mum and dad (Bitta and Steffen).
We really enjoyed every minute, thanks Bitta and Steffen!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thornapple did also got Best breeder group in the breed ring
(it was two). In the group where Diablo, Jag, Damon and Janis. But
we didn't took them into the final ring, because just after
that Damon should be in group no 1... so we decided to not go in with
them. We wanted to give Damon the best!!
