Roy Marshall judged Crufts this year and he awarded Selmalda I Am Rock JW first place in a hot Special Junior class. It was great to meet up with all our friends there, including Maibritt and Dorthe from Denmark and Fiona and Marion from Ireland. We had a broad smile as we went to collect our awards for Top Stud Dog 09 and Top Working Puppy 09! Nice one!

Pup Of The Year FINAL


What a wonderful day we had at Ragley Hall, Warwickshire at the Dog World/Purina Pro Plan Pup Of The Year Final. Selmalda I Am Rock JW, following his qualification in July 09 at Working Breeds, was the only Dane representative and of course he received loads of attention as we prepared for the judging. Brenda Banbury was the nominated judge and unfortunately for the large breeds the marquee where the dogs were to be examined was rather restrictive. However Rocco did us proud and put his best foot forward! Go Rocco!

Year End Conclusion - 2009


A most satisfying year for Selmalda! Ch. Selmalda She Looks To Me Through Samdice JW gained her crown, Ch. Selmalda Romeo JW, pictured left, finished as Top Stud Dog in the breed and Selmalda Rock Ola Baby JW was TOP PUPPY IN THE WORKING GROUP!
