In 2006 Kennel Caratoots really dominated the top lists in Sweden. Out of the 20 Top Winning Papillons of Sweden 2006, six were breed and owned by me. Ch Caratoots Convince Chantalle, now thirteen years old was still going strong in the show rings. She was placed eleven times, won one BOB, one BOS, eleven BOB Veteran and one BIG-4 Veteran. Kennel Caratoots was once again the No 1 Top Winning Breeder.
In June 2006 Ch Caratoots Classy Centerfold returned to the house of Caratoots to compete in the show rings and be used in breeding. “Jazz” who usually lives with Graeme and Elaine Daws in Washington USA, was in Sweden with us for a limited period during 2006. In less then four months he in addition to his International, American and Canadian titles, received his championship titles in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland. He was placed twenty times, with eleven BOB, two BOS, four CAC, eight CACIB and four R-CACIB.. Apart from two BIG-1, one BIG-4 and one BIS-3, he was also awarded the titles Norwegian Winner 2006, Copenhagen Winner 2006 and Swedish Winner 2006.
Ch Caratoots Classic Commander gathered four championship titles this year; Swedish, Norwegian, Danish and Nordic Champion. He was placed fifteen times, won three BOB, three BOS, two CAC, four CACIB and three R-CACIB. All these winning gave him the position as No 3 Top Winning Dog of the year.
Caratoots Compassionate Casanova continued his second year in the show rings, and was placed nine times, won one BOB, three CAC and one BIG-5. Ch Caratoots Complete Charisma was placed ten times, won two BOB, one BOS, two CACIB, one R-CACIB and one BIG-5, while Caratoots Complete Coronation kicked off his show career ten months old in October with three placements and one CAC.
Pearl Collection Pärlemo was placed seventeen times, won five BOS, seven CAC and six CACIB during the year – not bad for a young girl just starting to compete in the show rings.
Show results of Caratoots 2006
The two litters of the year were born just one day after the other. Ch Caratoots Classic Confidence had been mated to Ch Carovers Jagger, and gave birth to three puppies (Caratoots Certain Capability, Caratoots Center Court and Caratoots Cute Carla), out of which we kept a bitch for our future breeding – Caratoots Certain Capability. The following day Caratoots Charming Cassandra gave birth to six puppies (Caratoots Captains Choice, Caratoots Comely Contender, Caratoots Comtesse Coquette, Caratoots Confiding Companion, Caratoots Clear Crystal and Caratoots Classic Creation). All of these puppies were sired by Caratoots Compassionate Casanova. Four of the puppies were exported; one to the USA, one to Norway and two to Denmark.
