2013 Year Review

2013-12-31

Well what a year to remember it was for the Selmalda Team. This year saw debuts for our own three youngsters, S. Koochie Ryder, S. The Kiss and S. Angel Of Harlem as well some of their litter mates. An unbelievable year as Ryder concludes the year as Top Puppy (with 8 awards), 2 CCs and 6 RCCs, Kiss wins 2 BPs and 1 RCC whilst Harlem gave Ryder a run for his money with 7 BPs, 1 RCC and qualifies for the prestigious POTY competition. Many thanks to everyone for their continues support and appreciation, it really has been an exceptional campaign that we have all thoroughly enjoyed.
