28.12 we visited Pskov, Russia for a national show. The results made us more than happy:
Liina, Iiah's Donna Piccolina, Best of Breed junior and future RUS J CH (waits for the EST J CH to be completed).
Mia, Oliviera Mia Oops Fantazija, Best of Breed and RUS CH
Ella - second behind Mia as best Bitch and reserve CAC.
As cherry on top of the cake, Mia was also Best of Group 3. Thank you all involved!
18-19.10.we visited Rakvere national shows with Ella and Liina. First day they were judged by Jurate Butkiene, who found them both to be excellent and nothing more. For the second day, the girls were much better and judge Livija Zizevske awarded Ella with CAC and Liina with JCAC. First JCAC for Liina and last CAC for Ella - so as soon as the hunting trials are done, we can confirm her EST CH title. In additional Ella was BOS and Liina was BOB junior.
Thank you all involved, especially the ones who survived with us the sunday morning without any scratch!
We took part of these shows with only two dogs, one of them entered to show first time ever. Results were more than satisfying :)
Iiah's Donna Prima, called Klaara by her owners, was shown first time in puppy class to BOB puppy.
Oliviera Mia Oops Fantazija, called Mia at home, was shown both days as a champion. First day with EX1, BB, CACIB and BOB, second day EX1, BB, CACIB and BOS.
