Elisa and I are now back home safe and sound after our trip to DFS Crufts 2010. It was wonderful to meet so many friends from around the world and spend time talking Papillons.
Each year we are at Crufts it is clear that it is truly becoming an International meeting place for Papillon lovers around the world.
This year we travelled with two dogs entered at Crufts from our kennel. We were also excited at the prospect of seeing a little girl bred by our kennel showing at Crufts and now owned and residing with the Gleniren / Sunshoo Showteam under their addition new affix Suniren.
First to enter the ring was our stylish world traveller AM CH CAN CH FIN CH Multiple Group Winner Siljans Tri Connection "Mickey" showing for the very first time in the UK. After having continual success in the USA, Canada,Finland and Belgium he charmed the judge Mrs Ayris and we were thrilled that he was awarded the RDCC against many well known dogs. We then went in the Open bitch class with Sweetie, CH BISS Siljans Oh La La.Who was awarded a very creditable RES placement in such a large class.
BCC and BOS went to pretty "Ricky" daughter 'GETUPANDGO DE COSTALINA SUNIREN'. This very pretty and sound bitch Babybelle was expertly handled in the ring by one his owners Glenn Robb of the Gleniren / Sunshoo showteam. To be the breeder of the Crufts BCC was a dream come true and we are extremely proud. So a very successful day for all three dogs.
The Costalina team is delighted with our reputation for winning at Crufts. Over the years we are pleased to have been awarded in 2006 BOB Papillon with Toy Grp 4, 2007 taking BOB and BOS. Needless to say 2009 was a truly memorable year taking BOB and going on to win Toy Grp 1. Costalina we like to think has helped play a part in the Papillon history pages for Crufts We are so looking forward to see you all again in at the NEC next year .
Mrs Melanie de Jongh from South Africa will by the proud owner of Nina (Interamnia de Costalina) Parents: Connection Bag Lady x High Class de Costalina (son of famous Multi Ch BIS winner Connection Tri Symphony) We wish you all the best little Nina and new owner Melanie.
A new rising star at de Costalina/Starmaker kennels.
10.01.2010 Following in the footsteps of the world wide recognized line of winners from de Costalina kennels, Mickey is making his mark. At the International all breed show in Hoogstraten Belgium the breed judge, Mrs. Elzbieta Chwaliborg from Poland, awarded him the CAC, CACIB and BOB. Group Judge Mrs. Rita Riniers from Belgium recognized his qualities and placed him as her BIG 2 selection.
The critique comments identify that the judges were rewarding breed type, not hype!
"His expression is soft and intelligent."
"He has a good skull and dark almond eyes, a correct ear set with long fringes flowing in the wind."
"He also has a short muzzle and good stop."
"In the ring always happy and playful as a papillon must be!"
24.02.2010 At the Gent International all breed show Mickey won the CAC, CACIB and again selected as BOB by Mr. da Silva Zeferino from Portugal. Later Mr. da Silva Zeferino, who was also judging the Group, compared him with the large numbers of entries of Group Nine and awarded Mickey with Best in Group. Mickey placed BIS 6 under judge J-J Dupas (Fr) to finish out the extraordinary day at Gent.
De Costalina kennels wishes to thank all the judges for their appreciation of all the right things in a small body. We also believe, as these judges do, in rewarding breed type, not hype.

Not only do we want to let our dogs shine in the ring like stars. Of course we want them to be happy besides the showring as well. This weekend (Manne) BIS & Multi BIG & Multi Ch. Siljans My Man went for a Winter Walk in the Park with my daughter and her Pomeranian Dennis. Those 3 seem to become great friends. After the cold day, Manne got to eat some chicken and sleep with Kathleen in bed. What a nice retirement for a super dog like Manne!
