Holland greeted us by strong winds and chilling rain, but we felt right at home in this hospitable country. Besides attending the 33e Internationale Kampioenschaps-Tentoonstelling voor honden van alle rassen we spent 3 lovely days in Rotterdam. I am happy that INT CH Wyndsong Halcyon Midnight Watch became Best of Breed and earned CACIB and his first CAC in Holland and INT CH Shalako Dynamite became Best of Opposite Sex also with CACIB and CAC under Dr. K. Scheel (Denmark). Many thanks to him for the thorough critiques and kind approach. Also huge thanks go to the Schenk family - you are the best! Well, looks like we will be going back to Holland!
