Year 2001 – Home coming king goes BISS

During spring 2001, Caratoots Count Christopher, moved to the USA to live in Iowa at Kennel Zelicaon. Half a year later he had achieved enough points to become an American Champion. Caratoots Captain Courageous, previously exported to Mrs Karen Byrd of Kennel Silkwings in the USA, came back temporary for a few months to Sweden to be used in our breeding program and compete in the show rings. He was placed seven times during his short stay in Sweden, and out of those he was BOB four times. He received three CAC, two CACIB and one R-CACIB. Quite an accomplishment in such short time. Ch Caratoots Captivating Conqueror earned his Swedish Championship title in May, followed by his brother Ch Caratoots Captain Courageous in July. The mother of these two fine gentlemen, Ch Caratoots Convince Chantalle, was also awarded BIS Veteran in May at the Swedish Toy Dog Club show.

The Swedish National Breed Specialty 2001 was a great success for Kennel Caratoots. Ch Caratoots Captain Courageous won the show, hence becoming BISS, Ch Caratoots Convince Chantalle became BOB-veteran, and her littermate Caratoots Consider Courus BOS-veteran. Ch Caratoots Complete Charisma was awarded Winners Bitch and Best of Winners, and finally Kennel Caratoots became the Best Breeders Group.

Caratoots Complete Charisma started her show career this year. Being placed sixteen times, with one BOB and one BOS, and getting four CAC, we knew she was heading for something great.
