Kira returned to Germany in 2005 with Peter to successfully compete in Germany’s most prestigious competition for young Drahthaars, “The Hegewald” Kimmax again making breed history as we are the first and only UK kennel ever to enter into this competition.
Kira also returned to Germany to have a registered VDD litter in 2006 – Sire was the very impressive Ero III del Zeffiro who has a form/hair score of 12/12.
This litter was very successful and produced the multi-international champion titled Timo owned by ourselves however there were other successful puppies in the litter too, form and hair scores were Tom 11/11, Timo 11/10, Tessa 10/11 and Tina 10/10, but it was at the Hegewald where they really excelled, Manfred Wolff owned and handled Tom and his sister, Tessa. Tom won Most Beautiful Dog at the Hegewald and was 7th place overall out of 240 dogs and Tessa was 104th. Tina went to Antonius’s Greek friend, Dimitri Kritkos and Tina came 34th. Toska also went well coming 121st, so all in all Kira and Ero’s children were very successful indeed.
Kira made few appearances in the show ring however she was Best Bitch and res Best in Show at the GWP club centenary open show in Oct 06.
Kira is one of Peter’s main shooting companions and has spent several seasons shooting with him in Scotland. Kira gained a COM at the Mid Wales working Gundog Society Field Trial in November 10.
