Saturday 26th November – G.R.C. Advents Championship Show,  Cloppenburg, Germany.
judges : Males - Julie Seamons ‘Messano’(UK) & Bitches – Dawn Rose ‘Gaytonwood’(UK)

This was the last of the Golden Retriever Club of Germany Championship Shows for the year ……

and an important one as the results would be decisive for the various club titles on offer for the year.

The German G.R.C. runs a competition for the Top Winning Male, the Top Winning Female, 
the Top winning Veteran & the Top Winning Juniors of each sex over the year. 
( 5 points for a 1st, 4 points for a 2nd, 3 points for a 3rd etc)

Overall it became a great day with ALL five of our Goldens entered on the day being placed, leading to  3 of the above 
G.R.C. Club titles being won ( Top Male, Top Female & Top Junior Bitch !!!)

 Our Beethoven of the Hellacious Acres won his first open class with the CAC and VDH awards 
and the win  gave him the points required to earn the title of :  

'GRC Clubsieger 2011'

His litter brother Haydn of the Hellacious Acres belonging to Sven & Alexandra Budde finished third in the competition
 after having had a great 2011 with many CAC’s and VDH’s won during the year.


 Our fun loving, little “Sugar”-Herwildy’s Maidensblush won 2nd Excellent in a very strong junior class.

This gave her the points to become  the  top winning female Junior  & the well deserved title of  

'GRC Jugend Clubsiegerin 2011'

Our Martha daughter “Morwenna of the Hellacious Acres” made her debut at a CAC championship show after having only been shown once in the puppy class at an open show.

She was entered in a strong intermediate class and became 2nd Excellent with the R.CAC and R.VDH.

A debut to be proud of, well done little Morwenna!!  

  Back after maternal duties our sweet Philomena was back on the show scene.

She “wagged” herself to a 4th Excellent  in the open bitch class!  

  Last but not least – Our “STAR” of 2011 International Sh.Ch./Dutch Ch./ Lux Ch./German & VDH Ch/ & European Centenary Winner 2011, EuropaSiegerin 2011  Velvenya Vogue of Ramchaine’

 did it again -  She won her Champion bitch Class very convincingly and thrilled us by becoming Best Bitch.  

   This win gave her the added points to gain the title of : 

'GRC Clubsiegerin 2011'

   On the end of the day Vogue became BOS … with the BOB going to  a son of her “uncle”

Nor.Ch. Ramchaine Snap to Jako’s. ….. so altogether it was a family party and a great day for the Hellacious Acres and Ramchaine Golden Retrievers.  

  Sunday  27th November - The Amsterdam Winner , Amsterdam, The Netherlands
judges : Frank Kane (UK) – males & Dan Ericson (Denmark) – bitches 

Close but not quite close enough to the top honours!  -  both our entries became 2nd  in their respective classes…..on itself a great achievement ……. although Ramchaine and Hellacious Acres golden retrievers are always striving for the best !!!

 “Sugar” – Herwildy’s Maidensblush – 2nd Excellent in the Junior Bitch class   

 Multi Ch.Velvenya Vogue of Ramchaine – 2nd Excellent  in the Champion class.  

Sabina’s ‘Phyllis of the Hellacious Acres’  was entered in the Open bitch class – she did very well  gaining a well deserved 3rd Excellent, Well done Sabina!! She looked fabulous & moved GREAT!!


Altogether good results and a succesfull weekend, and our first time back out showing after our own new addition!  Also at the show for a ‘practice’ & socialization time we took our Philo son of 8months

‘Noah of the Hellacious Acres’  …. He enjoyed his day out and took to the big ring with ease …..
