Atteded Crufts at the NEC in Birmingham, England. It was a great day for Lake Country Goldens…especially for the relatives on our girl “Kate”. To even qualify for Crufts is quite an accomplish, let alone place in the top five of a class. Kate’s sire, Lux Ch, UK Sh.Ch. Zampanzar Say It Again Shardanell J.W. GRC (Top Stud dog 2013-2014) produced the winning male and female for golden retrievers. He also had 13 other of his offspring place in the top five of their class. One of these was Kate’s litter sister from Xanthos! Very happy about this! Additionally, Epic’s sire placed 3rd in the toughest and biggest open dog class I have ever seen (38 entries). Here are some photos from the day.
