Year 2004 was a great show year; our bitches conquered the top three positions of Top Winning Papillon Bitches in Sweden, and our grand old lady kept her position as the 2nd Top Winning Papillon Veteran. Ch Caratoots Classic Confidence was placed thirteen times, won four BOB and five BOS, was placed as BIG and BIS-2 at the Swedish Toy Dog Club National Dog Show in Helsingborg, became Swedish Champion and was awarded the title Swedish Winner 2004 by Danish judge Mrs Kitty Sjong at the SKK International Dog Show in Stockholm.
Ch Caratoots Complete Charisma was placed fourteen times this year, and took three BOB, one BOS and became BIG-4 at the Swedish Toy Dog Club in Karlstad. Ch Caratoots Captain Courageous was temporary back in Sweden from Atlanta USA for the second time to be used in my breeding. He was only here for a limited period during fall when there are not that many dog shows to attend, but still got placed twice, one of them as BOS.
Our phalène Ch Caratoots Celestial Choice became Swedish, Danish and Gibraltar Jr Champion, moved to the USA and became American Champion in only 6 shows. Our American import, Ch Forevr A Pretty Package took three BOB, one BOS, one CAC, two CACIB, and received her Swedish Championship title at a the SKK International Dog Show in Avesta where she became BIS-2 for Argentinean judge Mr Carlos Saevich.
My veteran Ch Caratoots Convince Chantalle really challenged the other veterans this year, when she became BOB Veteran eight times and BOS Veteran once. Caratoots Classic Commander started his show career, and was placed twice at the end of the year.
Show results of Caratoots 2004
We exported two of the puppies born end of year 2003, Caratoots Classic Challenge and Caratoots Crème de Cacao, to show homes in the USA. Caratoots Cardinal Choice had one puppy sired by Ch Caratoots Classic Commander, which also went to new owners in the USA, Caratoots Classic Choice. To improve our breeding we imported an American bitch, Deannas Double Diamond, and temporary borrowed Ch Caratoots Captain Courageous from Mrs Karen Byrd in Atlanta USA. Deannas Double Diamond was mated with Ch Caratoots Captain Courageous and gave birth to two bitches. We kept Caratoots Charming Cassandra for our future breeding, while Caratoots Countess Caronessa found a new home in Stockholm.
