First of all, Vom Drakkenfels would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Now! On to the News! I am happy to say that Rennick's Kilo is well on his way to completing his Championship. With five Reserve Winners,  two of those earned at the Gulfstream Rottweiler Specialty in Miami. Winners Dog and two points under Mr. Eric Ringle at the Fort Myers Dog Club Show in Ft Myers and  Best of Winners and two points under Mr. Ronald Lambert at the Brevard Kennel Club Show in Orlando, Kilo now has four points towards his American Championship. Congratulations to Kilo and his owner Leroy Philips!

Vom Drakkenfels would like to congratulate Quinn Webb on his acquisition of Ken vom Schwaiger Wappen's last son, Hodeva's Agazi. Quinn made the journey to Sweden and met with Marianne Martinsson of Hodeva's Kennel. Agazi has his Korad, the Swedish equivalent of the German Korung. He also has his Swedish Championship and his TJH Working Title, an Army Patrol Dog Title, certifying him in Tracking and Obedience.


I wanted to tell everyone about the wonderful trip I took to NY for the USRC NE Regionals. This trip was kinda special since it was the first trip that my daughter Collina made with me..."just the girls". Quinn Webb, owner of Damien, met us up there along with our friend Dennis Posse and his wife. What a trip that was! The bus did wonderful the whole time but the 2 girls got broken down a few times.../giggle. Once we arrived at the show we went over to the BEAUTIFUL arena that was setup for the SchH Nationals being held the same time. Due to weather however the conformation part of the show was moved inside the Arena. We missed the Obedience which we all wanted to see but we did see the helper try-outs which I think Quinn got on tape. We headed back to the room to get the dogs all set for the next days events...everyone was SOAKED by the time everyone was out and run. The dogs loved it! /UGH. The next day was the same with DOWNPOURS...but we were all set with the bus parked just outside....THANK YOU DARLENE AND ANDY! This show had some outstanding dogs with HUGE classes of 15-18 dogs each and people that were going hardcore for the win. Excellent vendors (I got 4 new gold collars for $15 buck!!) with a good selection of items. and the most important thing...good friends, 2 good Judges, and a fun time!

Now for the results of the dogs I took up: Sue Sealing send her boy Eli up and he did very well in the 6-9 class P-3, Damien and his Sister might have walked away from the SE Regionals with Best Puppy Male and Female but at this show they BOTH took the SG-3 from a huge classes in 12-18. Damien got slightly distracted during his run and decided that the big blue ball that someone was playing with was much more exciting and launched me out of the ring onto my shoulder and knees...(ouch). Hunter Lund's Cai took a VP in 6-9 and his Loki went SG in 18-24. Nova took the SG from the same class and Trinity went SG in the 18-24. Sue Lynch's boy Ketel One's a step above (Red) was a show boat and took the V-2 in a HARD 18-24 class. The dog that won went Youth Sieger...Congrats to Darren Taylor's Matcho vom Haus Milan. This win follows a V rating he got a the Klub show recently in Germany. This beautiful boy is American bred and was in the top 10 for the Klub show! What a thrill that has to be. We left the show soon after and Collina attended her first Judge's Dinner with new friends. She said she is looking forward to more shows soon and had a great time. The next day in Open Males my friend Joanne Lockner and I prepared ourselves to show Norris in the Open Class. He did VERY well but I mishandled him during the teeth exam and final line up, it cost us. The ball for baiting came out too soon and he was then focused on that instead of the exam. We walked away with a V-4. This show was almost comparable to a National with the number of dogs and the quality of what I saw. We had people from California (Hi RJ!!) to Canada to of course Florida. It was such a pleasure to meet all the new faces and have time to chat between dogs...Congrats to all the well deserved winners. I fell in love with a Furst daughter...wow what a HEAD on that girl!! loved it!!








Now we have the IFR coming soon to see, SPARK is having a USRC Sanctioning show in Penn, there is a USRC Sanctioning show in VA, the Florida Circuit in January, The GulfStream (Dec) and the Seminole Rottweiler (Feb) Specialties and then the AIRK Nationals (NC in Mar) and the USRC Nationals (SC in Apr) and I think Grace mentioned the ARC Nationals (/crosses fingers) in Florida??.

Thanks for letting me Share...and I wish I could have made the Medallion but my daughter had to get back to work...see you next year for that one though.

For all those that did the Dogwood Specialty and USRC Kentucky Bluegrass...I MADE IT HOME! The dogs did wonderful even with a full bus of 18+hitchhikers.

I started out my show weekend this week by doing my first specialty after the long hiatus from the circuit...I was totally AWESTRUCK with the puppy male 9-12 class!! Congrats to all the breeders on that flock of wonderful pups and the stud owners that produced them. Congrats to all the winners!! BRAVO! The show was well put on with plenty of crate room, refreshments offered and warm smiles from old friends. It was good to see you. Now my brags from that one...

Evman's Cai vom Drakkenfels- Daughter of Multi-V, Am Ch. Krikarotts Jockey vom Blackriesen and my DragonLady went to her FIRST show...(not that she wasn't a trained pup or anything.../wink) She is owned by Hunter Lund. She walked out of a tough 6-9 class with the Second place! Crazy Cai then decided to strut her stuff at the German show...VP2!

The little girl she lost to was OUTSTANDING! What a Head piece on that puppy!! WOW. Cai's half-brother Alumna's Behr von Evman went V-1 in Champion class and their dad Jockey went V-1 in the Veteran's Class...I showed Lamboss to a V-2 in Veterans, Asia V-1 in Veterans, Eve also got V-1 on Quantum, little Yoga went VP-3 in the 4-6, Hunter's boy Loki went SG-4 in 18-24, Sue Lynch's boy Red walked away with the SG1 in a TOUGH 18-24 class but lost the JS title to the OUTSTANDING son on Elvis named Cooper. Congrats to his owners and breeders! He is well deserved of that title!! My new girl Redwood Krest's Nova

 took the SG-3 in 12-18. Trinity went SG-4 in the 18-24...she was JUST 18 months. Quinn's boy A'Damien vom Drakkenfels took the SG-3 from 12-18, Susan Hayes sent her new pup Eli up with me and he took home a SG-3 from the 6-9 class...his first show!!, Eve and von Evman took the Kennel class.

Congrats to the Female Select winner: V-1 USRC Select Ch Esmonds Kaleidoscope of Quarks Am CDX, Can CD, RN, NA, NAJ, NAP, NJP, SchHI, BST, BH, U-CD, U-AGII, TT, CGC, TDI.

/pant pant...did I forget anyone that I showed or helped show? I'm tired just reading that.

CONGRATS to Joanna Lockner's boy Norris on taking V-2 in Open and 4th place at the Dogwood Specialty from the Open Class!! I have her convinced to bring him to NY now...hehehehe...

I think by the time I climbed into bed every muscle of my body was lead.

One last comment...I was slightly offended by something I saw at the Dogwood Specialty. I think that it was poor taste to place a set of bolt cutters at the ring side with a sign that said "where do you stand on the tail docking issue". Who did that? and Why strong arm people? /shrug. Me...I still stand firm that it should be left up to the Breeders discretion and no one else honestly. Its their decision...they own the litter. Tail or no Tail its still a Rottweiler...but that was uncalled for and tasteless.

The Dragon Litter has arrived!! They will be making a debut at the Show in 2006

Lady and her seven babies!

I recently got one of my babies back!!...Introducing my daughter Collina Marie Cardona. She will be helping at shows and learning so be sure to say hello when you see her.

NEW ARRIVAL!! I am happy to announce that Redwood Krest's Nova has arrived and is happily playing in the fields with the rest of the pack. She is a special co-ownership with Joeri and Christina from Redwood Krest. She is a lovely girl and we will have a great time together! Thank you soooooo much Joeri...I will not disappoint you.

On my way up to the panhandle to meet with Harald of Katus Wappen Rottweilers we stopped in to check on one of our sons and his family. Remember Beo from the "B" Litter? He just turned 9 months old.


We are pleased to announce an exclusive breeding, the vom Drakkenfels "E" LitterThis will be Bora's third and last breeding. She will be retired to become a couch potato like her mother before her.  Watch for them in the ring 2006.
