The first day we drove to Hamburg where our judges were Freda Garget (Garvin) doing dogs and Vivien Jones (Ninell) doing bitches.

Our little boy Beethoven of the Hellacious Acres did very well winning a very large junior class (18), only just out of puppy, at 9 months of age , and gained his first German J. CAC .  Jeree’s son Ramchaine Musketeer, also just 9 months became second and to make everything even better Ludwig’s litter brother Haydn of the Hellacious Acres became fourth; another successful class for our kennel.

Melissa of the Hellacious Acres also had her first junior class at the age of nine months and was 4th.


Jeree. (Sh.Ch.Ramchaine Essential JW) won the Champion class with CAC and VDH.



Philomena of the Hellacious Acres came next with a hard act to follow and brought us the highlight of the day by not only winning a strong open class but going further to use all her charms , very sweet character and constantly wagging tail, to be awarded Best Bitch  ……




And…………….ultimately chosen by the two judges as their BEST OF BREED!!!!!!



The second day of our German weekend : Sunday 29thAugust in Schwarmstedt where our lovely goldens were that day judged by Kjel Svenson (Seacrest).

On the 4th of September 2010 the Ramchaine and Hellacious Acres “Globetrotters” went on their way, this time to Luxemburg CACIB Championship show in the city of Luxemburg ,

An international renowned “meeting” point where you find exhibitors from a great variety of countries. The main goal is to gain that  “ Luxemburg Championship title”


Our team consisted this time out of Jeree and Vogue both on the edge of gaining their respective titles. Judge on this occasion was Mrs. A.M.Rhodin from Sweden .


Op 4 september 2010 trokken de Ramchaine en Hellacious Acres “wereldreizigers”

naar Luxemburg waar het doel altijd is om die fel begeerde Luxemburgse Kampioenstitel te behalen.

We hadden deze maal maar een klein team mee dat bestond uit JEREE en VOGUE,

Beide op het randje van het behalen van hun titels de keurmeester kwam uit Zweden en heette mevr. A.M.Rhodin.



Sh.Ch.Ramchaine Essential JW may also add the title of Luxemburg Champion to her list which she gained out of Champion class. Well done little “JEREE”


Sh.Ch.Ramchaine Essential JW behaalde haar Luxemburgse kampioenstitel” komende uit de kampioensklasse.




Vogue started in her first open bitch class, her intermediate times are over, on the 20th of August she became two years old. But it didn’t stop her from winning her class  with the CAC and therefore also she is crowned as Luxemburg Champion”.

So she is now:

LUX.CH. Velvenya Vogue of Ramchaine JW, Lux-,VDH-, Ger.- ,NL- JCH.,JW’09 and Bjsg.09.


Vogue moest deze keer vanwege haar leeftijd starten in de open klasse die ze glansrijk won en zodoende mag ook zij zich Luxemburgs kampioen noemen



“Vogue” did even better by becoming “Best Bitch” with CACIB and BOS ,  she must be good!!!!!!!!!!!!

Driving back home with two new titles on one day was a special feeling for Charmaine and Bart, another mission accomplished. YEAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!


Vogue deed er nog een schepje bovenop door “Beste Teef” te worden, het CACIB te winnen en “Best opposite sex”te worden.

Toen we terug reden naar huis met twee nieuwe titels was dat wel weer een bijzonder gevoel, weer een opdracht volbracht. YEAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!

August 2010 was picked to be a very special month with the long drive from Holland to Scotland to return to the birthplace of the Golden Retriever breed.
Bart and Charmaine had decided that for them, with their immense passion for the breed, that there was no better place to begin married life together ...... than where their beloved breed had begun too!  Rather romantic don't you think?
 The now magnificent ruins of the Guisachan Estate, in the village of Tomich, Inverness-shire,  where Lord Tweedmouth had lived and developed the origins of  the Golden Retriever between  1835 - 1890's - provided an unusual backdrop to some interesting wedding photos!


It is hard to say whether it is a coincidence or just faith but as you can see the 1st Lord Tweedmouth his name was  Sir Dudley Coutts Marjoribanks BART,



The ceremony itself was held on a small cruise boat on the wonderful waters of Loch Ness with in the backdrop the ruins of Urqhuart Castle .


The reception after was at the Tomich Hotel itself - a very fitting venue we thought.


Many of our family and guests stayed to enjoy the wedding week in Tomich - staying either in the Tomich Hotel itself or the Tomich Holidaypark ( what used to be the Home Farm Steading) 
 - and took the opportunity to visit the stunning scenery and beautiful landscapes of the Glenaffric mountains, with its impressive gorges, water courses,  waterfalls , massive pine trees  and vast parkland.  




Bart and Charmaine picked the Guisachan Lodge next door to the Kennels as their place to reside for the week with its very lovely gardens.

Barnum & Vogue were the lucky two chosen to be able to join in the celebrations and take part in the week’s activities: -
 & had the important role of being the ring bearers on the special day itself.

Altogether it became a truly 'Golden' occasion with some wonderful memories to treasure

Charmaine and Bart

Maastricht Championshipshow(NL) on the 26th of September saw Tony Copeland (UK) judging. Bart and Charmaine, still recovering from a very busy August month stayed at home and were pleased to see that Ramchaine Sweet Chesnut became best baby ; Ramchaine Musketeer was 4th in junior despite having lost his beautiful puppycoat; & Porthos of the Hellacious Acres was 2nd in open dog.

All ‘well done’ from US, who spent the day in Twisk!!!!!
