Past Puppy Wins International Dog Show Awards
On November 7, LC Fortin Reuben was chosen "Best Male Dog", CAC and won
"Excellent Junior Class."  Reuben was raised by Carol's Corgis and purchased by the
Koots family in Amsterdam.  He is scheduled to be shown again at the end of the
month.  Our puppies have received national attention over the past year.  The judge at
this particular dog show was from Australia and the show was a CAC/CACIB show.  We
wish Reuben the best of luck in his future shows.  Congratulations to the Koots family
for purchasing this wonderful dog.

The Koots bought a pup from the Williams last year and had it shipped to The
Netherlands.  They liked it so much they decided to travel to the United States
themselves and get two more.

"We had said the next time we get one, we're coming to America to pick it up," said John

"I've never been to America before. It's the first time." Reporter: "What do you think about
it?" "It's different, completely different than our country. There is much space, and it's
good-looking here. I like it here," said Gertruud Koot.

The Koots told KTVO they're impressed by how nice people here are. They even made
their first trip ever to Wal-mart Friday. Amsterdam does not have any Wal-mart stores.

They'll be spending the weekend in Green City before heading home with their new
dogs early next week.
