Amersfoort - Sunday 20th February - Dog of the Year Show

Remington Requiste of Ramchaine - Jazmin

Jazmin makes her LAST performance at the Netherlands ' Dog of the Year Show '.

It was very apt for her last time to display her fantastic exuberant attitude as a true showgirl and supermodel to literally be on 'the catwalk' and under the 'spotlights'.  


 As always she loved every minute of the limelight, wagged her tail constantly and showed herself off enthusiastically to the full, moving straight and true.


Only two golden retrievers had qualified for this prestigious event during the previous year by their 1st or 2nd place Group wins.

The event was judged on the FCI group system with each of the 10 group winners then coming together to compete for the title of 'Dog of the Year 2010'.

Jazmin had double qualified to compete in the FCI Group 8 ( Spaniels & Retrievers ) as well as in the separate "Veteran of the Year " competition of which she was shortlisted into the last 5 ...

being the second oldest present on the day at 11years of age. 

Our precious old lady now takes a well deserved rest and is officially retired from the show ring she has loved soooo much, an amazing deeply cherished member of our family she is loved and adored by many and thankfully lives on in her many children and grandchildren.  


 It is an odd feeling to realize that the perfected working relationship built over so many years has finally come to an end. We are VERY VERY proud of her super achievements during her show career from her first 'Best Puppy in Breed' under Joan Tudor ( Camrose)  where she went onto Best Puppy in Show under Val Foss ( Elswood)  at the United Retriever Championship Show , to her first CHALLENGE CERTIFICATE at 22months of age.

 Jaz gained her magical 3rd CC and ‘Champion’ title under Yvette Mannings (Gatchells) at 2years of age.  She went on to produce 4 litters to 4  separate ‘husbands’ winning more CCs/RCCs between each of the 4 litters  along the way !! Her offspring  include UK/German/Lux Ch. Ramchaine Essential JW, Ramchaine Eidolon (1CC), UK Sh Ch. Ramchaine Green Glow by Fenwood (13CCs) German Ch. Ramchaine Green Glitter, Russian Ch. Ramchaine Patience Ist Istry, Ramchaine Ilyssia of Jobeka (2CCs) , Ramchaine Isaac JW, Norwegian Ch. Ramchaine Snap to Jakos ( Norway’s Top Golden2010)  Finnish Junior Ch. Ramchaine Whist  & Ramchaine Jaq  of Hearts JW ( 2 CACs/2CACIBs), plus others with their K.C. Stud Book Numbers…...

At 9 ˝ years of age Jazmin won her 10th CC, BOB & Group 3 before leaving the UK to live in Holland and compete in the FCI system of shows winning CACs/RCACs &  CACIBs from the Champion class in Germany, Luxembourg and the Netherlands….. at 10 ˝ we thought it was time to admit to her age and change her into the veteran class!

In just over a year on the European showscene Jaz had acquired her Dutch / German & VDH Champion titles plus her Dutch Veteran Champion title too.

Fuzzy made her 1st appearance into the show ring at 15 months of age – bad timing we feared for her debut as she decided to lose all her coat in the bath the night before the show !!  However she thoroughly enjoyed her outing , was graded ‘excellent’ and despite looking rather naked - pleased us by becoming 2nd in Junior bitch.
