SVARTKONGE AV STURTMOOR (IMP NOR)
What a fantastic year for our new boy King! He hit the show ring in June 2012 when he was 6 months old and didn't look back!
In only 10 shows with Champion Certificates (CC's) on offer (including Crufts 2013), King won 3 CC's with Best of Breed and 4 Reserve CC's (his last at Crufts 2013) as well as 6 Best Puppy in Breed's.
King finished the year as:
Top Buhund Male (Norwegian Buhund Club)
Top Buhund Puppy (Norwegian Buhund Club)
Top Black (Norwegian Buhund Club)
Top Puppy in Group (Our Dogs/Dorwest Herbs)
Runner-up Top Dog (Dog World)
We are so proud of our baby boy and all his achievements, we can only hope that he will gain is 4th CC to make him up to a Champion (as the previous 3 have all been won as a puppy,he is not yet a champion!).
Thank you to all those that have supported us throughout the year, and good luck to everyone for the coming show season which is due to start very soon!
Pending heath test results, we are planning a litter from King and Foxy (Bernegarden's Reve Enka Imp NOR) in the summer of this year.

Norwegian Buhund Club Championship Show
(51 Dogs entered, 38 dogs present)
Judge - Mrs Lynne Smith (Alkola)
BEST IN SHOW
BEST PUPPY IN SHOW
This was King's 3rd CC from the Puppy Classes, we think he is the only Buhund in the UK's history to have achieved this! However, he still needs one more CC, taken after he is one year old to make him a UK Champion!
We are so proud of our young black boy - such a dream to own, in EVERY way!!
For the second time in 7 days, King did us proud!!
At the National Working & Pastoral Breeds Championship Show, on 14 July 2012, under Judge Kerry Frost (Frostisen), king yet again won his class, Best Puppy in Breed and the Reserve Champion Certificate (RCC).
My good friend Laura Wilcox was kind enough to take this photograph of him at the show.
Menna (Int/NL/BEL/DK Ch. Karabas Likande Lamenna Letta at Sturtmoor (IMP NL) Sh.C.M WW'10 EW'11). BEST OF BREED at Crufts 2012
We had a fantastic day at CRUFTS yesterday with our Menna. She not only won her class, but also took Best Bitch and BEST OF BREED!! This was a very unexpected result, but a thrilling one!
Thanks to the judge (Mrs Sue Garner) for awarding Menna Best of Breed.
It was wonderful to see her on the television, I hope she did the breed proud!
We are proud to announce another fantastic Sturtmoor day at the National Working & Pastoral Breeds Championship Show held near Malvern on 16 July 2011.
Our Menna (Int/Bel/DK Ch. Karabas Likande Lamenna Letta at Sturtmoor IMP NL) took her 6th Best of Breed for the year under judge Meg Purnell-Carpenter! She then went on to win BEST RARE BREED IN SHOW under Judge Jack Bispham!!!!
Also her son - STURTMOOR OMARI, at 11.5 months old and at his 3rd ever show, took his 2nd Best Puppy in Breed award and also Reserve Best Dog!! Congratulations to Kathleen Garey for doing such a fantsatic job with Rouge!!
Following her son's success at WELKS on Sunday 1st May, Menna (INT/BEL/DK CH. Karabas Likande Lamenna Letta at Sturtmoor (IMP NL) Sh.C.M) took her second BEST OF BREED of the year!
A fantastic start to the 2011 season for Sturtmoor!!
Only one Sturtmoor Dog was present at WELKS championship show on 1st May 2011 - and what a day he had!!
Rouge (Sturtmoor Omari) who is out of Menna x Jaydee was attending his first show ever with his owner Kathleen Garey, what a start to his career!
Kath took Rouge into his first Junior Class, aged just 9 months, where he was against 3 other puppies that were a little older than him. He was placed FIRST!!! Millie (Camille Pentland - co-breeder of Rouge) then offered to take over the handling where Rouge went on to win not only Best Male but also BEST OF BREED!! There was a total entry of 21 Estrela's, with only 4 being absent. This was all under judge Robin Newhouse.
Rouge didn't stop there! Millie then took him into the Group, where judge Zena Thorn-Andrews decided to shortlist our baby boy to the LAST SIX! The Pastoral group had a total of 1124 entries, and Rouge was one best six in that group!!
Well done to Kath on doing such a fantastic job with Rouge, and getting him so well socialised. We hope to see him at more shows in the future!
