To say that the year 2000 was another good year for us would be an understatement.  

January brought our first champion of the year, 'Tara', Ch. Rose Croft Party Favor owned by Joe Vernuccio of New Haven, CT. 

Teddy started the year out with a bang with THREE back to back Group 1's and 8 other Group placements.

February was a very busy and exciting month!  It brought us visitors and dogs from Denmark.   Berit Rosenfeldt, Kennel Lachleen and Jette Thesrup came to deliver a puppy bitch bred by Jette, Thesrup Gaia and a 2 year old male, Hage Løjrom bred by Peter Hage.  Both Gaia and Løjser fit in just like they were born here. During their visit we all flew to Connecticut to be the guests of Joe Vernuccio.  Joe and Rick treated us in grand style by sending a stretch limousine to pick us up at the Hartford airport.  Saturday night Mark McDonald and Trish Watson treated Teddie (our daughter), Berit, Jette and Joe to a Broadway production of Beauty and the Beast as we attended the Pedigree Awards dinner where Teddy was announced the Cairn of the Year.  Monday morning we all rode the train in to New York for the prestigious Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.  

The following weekend we headed for the CTCNC Specialty weekend.  Teddie was Best Junior Handler for the second year in a row and Jake won his first major and Urchin received two consecutive legs towards his CD.
