The hightligt of the summer was the visit of Donna and Gene Smith (Baronwood) from the United States and the trip to the World Dog Show and circuit shows in Stockholm, Sweden with them. Gene and Donna are very dear friends of mine and have been involved with kees for decades. Donna´s keeshond bitch Ch. Bonnyvale´s S´mply Irresist´ble "Indy" was the #1 Kees in the US in 2007. Eswood Maple Mousse and Keestorpets Ultramarine got to go with us. Ouppies and three adult kees were taken to my parents summer place to a small island.
