The Year 2012 was a quite a hectic one for me. Some nice judging appointments, studying new breeds in group 8. I passed the judging exam for Curly Coated Retrievers, English Springer Spaniels, Portugese Waterdogs, Welsh Springer Spaniels, American cockerspaniels and Chesapeake Bay Retrievers. Did some showing of my own dogs too I was responsible of the teaching & organizing judging exams for our lovely breed, the Golden Retriever. And a new most exciting task of supporting my son during his first Autumn at school and participating as secretary at the parent's association. And my daily work has not been a walk in the park either.. ;) So - no wonder updates on our Dreamstyle homepage have been pretty scarse. Below I have listed some Highligts of our year
