Year 2011 in a nutshell....

Following her daddy's paw steps Nealah (Northgate's Heavens I'm Hot) won the Pharaoh Hound specialty (open show) Best In Show in June and became Top Pharaoh Hound in Finland. Like father like daughter :-). Daddy Skumpan (Northgate's Dom Perignon) took the Top Male.

Despite of her half a year mothernity leave Tyyne (Shalimar Mia Affirmed) was Top Bitch No2.

Young Kaya (Northgate's Just About Perfect) did splendid and ended as Top Bitch No3.

Litter sisters Miina (Northgate's I Want It All) and Wenla (Northgate's I Me Mine) sheared the Top Bitch No5 placement.

Enzo (Northgate's Forever N Ever) was Top Male No 5.

Ralf (Northgate's Just For Kicks) Top Male No 8.

Northgate's was Top Breeder 2011 in Finland and our Wendy (Northgate's Northern Lights) Top Producing Dam (4th year in row).

Skumpan took Best In Show win at Liminka group show in July and a BIS-3 placement in Oulu International on the very same weekend. He was also BIS-2 in Juuka in March and took a Group 1st in Pieksämäki all breeds in June among other group placements.

We also had Best In Field Lure Coursing winners; Ralf in Kajaani and Miina the following weekend in Kuopio. Miina also made a new track record in Oulu in 280 meters.

In the Italian Greyhounds Urho (Northgate's Midnight Fantasy) started his show career with very promising results; 3 BOB-puppy wins and BOS in Jyväskylä INT loosing only to his own mother Latte (Northgate's Envy Me). Elvis (Northgate's La Lune Mystique) took two BOB wins and 3 CCs, sister Elvira (Northgate's La Chic) two CCs and a BIG-3 placement.

Thank you all the owners of Northgate's kids for loving and taking such a good care of your 4 legged kids! That is the most important to us as their breeders. What they gain in shows, fields or racing is a bonus. Wishing you all a Happy New Year 2012. Hug your Hounds!
