Slany was my very first Irish Water Spaniel, so she of cource is very special to me. Slany was shown quite much, and she had several Best of Breeds and Best of Opposites and was group placed. Most I though respect her BOS at our Club Show in 1997 under Ank ter Kuile (Killymuck), and she was most time placed in the challenge in the specialties.

In 1997 Slany was mated to young Swedish male Aquatikus Lonely Canadian Tinker, and first Catanka litter was born. I'm very grateful for Slany truly introducing me for this wonderful breed and most Catankas carry her blood. She was such an easygoing and outgoing and clever girl, who lived full and long life.
