We participated in DKK's International show on the 16th of June in Vejen. This time we only brought Aston, but we had competition from a Finish owned female.
The judge Dan Ericsson (from Sweden) was extremely impressed with Aston and I have hardly ever seen such an impressive critic and received so many positive words. I must admit that I became almost shy and that says something after all these years.
Aston became BOB and made a nice entrance into the show ring later on but was not selected for the last selection, though I thought he should have been selected.
The 1st of June we were in Neumunster, Germany, on their annually International exhibition.
We arrived not until 11 o'clock but it went well. Very well in fact.
Aston became BOS and Coco BOB. They both received an excellent and a lot of prices.
In the group finals the judge was Cristian Stefanescu (president of the Romanian Kennel Club) and I don't think he would be the kind of judge attracted to the Portuguese water dog and when I received number 13 and the Lagotto became BIG 2 I thought that that was the end of waterdogs on the podium. Coco had done her best, she got her praise and I was super satisfied with her.
Then it hit us with full power BIG - winner of group 8, was the Portuguese water dog. Multi Champion and Multi Winner Unistars Coco Chanel!!
She can now be called Multi BIG winner. What a show and we had considered not to participate at all.
Finally the big day arrived where Aston not only was Multi winner but also can be called Multi Champion. The 20th May we took Aston to DKK's National show in Svendborg. We had chosen not to show him in earlier Denmark after he turned 2 years of age
since it was my dream to try to make him Danish Champion in the town he was born and where he lives. At the same time this was the first time that Svendborg hosted a national show.
Aston was ready and switched on, and despite the competition from a Norwegian owned female he became BOB with an excellent. This made him Danish champion. This again released the titles Norwegian Swedish and Nordic Champion. Titles that only have been waiting on Aston becoming a Danish Champion. A very nice day where every owner is even more proud of his dog.
Later that day Aston had not finished showing off. He just amazed me in the group selection and became BIG 2. This was just fantastic, don't forget he is still only 24 months old!
I am so proud of my new Multi Winner and Multi Champion Unistars DB 9 Aston Martin.

Kennel Unistars wishes everyone a Happy Easter
The 2nd April 2013 Multi Ch and Multi Winner - Unistars All Unik "Unik" turned 15½ years old - and were ofcourse celebrated and huged a litle extra that day. So many memories such a day bring 🤪
4th April - Aston started his agility training again, and I don't know who he has been training with during the winter, but it went surprisingly well. His beginner class were cancelled due to too many apologies, so went with the experienced class, but well our teacher thinks he could just stay with the experienced class. Yes, well this does make a owner very proud 😋 We hope to make some photos of him running in 14 days time 🙃
29th March - We went running just for our minimum run on 5 k, passing the local dog area, which in this period, is full of all kind of dogs running free, because of the Easter Holliday. Both Aston and Coco were really rudely attacked, and were Coco is answering back in her bitchi tone, Aston is a much more considered guy which manages to reject the rude behaviour with his body language, so proud og my young guy.
Also we experience Aston as an alot more calm dog in this period, he is truely becoming a pleasure to live with, we still have things to work on, but it is much more easy now🙃
