Champion Number 100

Nr. 100

With pride, we can announce to you, that we have bred the 100st Firstprizebear Bearded Collie. Our first litter was born in 1989 and now, 26 years later, 100 Champions have been achieved.

The honour to become the Number 100, was for Ronny and Heike Vanbossches blue “Ole”. “Firstprizebears Lucky Luke” won last Sunday, during the Specialty Show in Wirges/GER, the Open Class and received the last points necessary for the German and VDH Title. Judge during this happening was the Irish Mrs. C. Dunne. Mr. Vanbossche was in the ring with Ole, whilst Mrs. Vanbossche stood in the Bobtail ring.

This is, until now, the only picture we have recievd from this historical moment.
