This time the special weekend was on June 3-5, 2016.
It all started of with on Friday with the specialty of Irish Wolfhounds, judged by Irmgard de Haan-de Levie.
It was the first show for our Lily who was first in her class.
We also showed one boy, Rambo, from last litter - without any show experience, his prize was EVH- can not be judged as he could not understand, why the judge wants to go over him. But we got a lovely description so you might see more of him in the show ring in future.
His mother Käpik, completely untrimmed and overweight was a Good this time.
But - it is the spirit of the show we went there for and descriptions of dogs, so we are happy with the results.
On Saturday, it was Estonian Winner 2016, international show day. Only dachshunds participated this time.
Mõmmi was BOB baby at his debute show. We did not show him in the finals, as we thought it might be too much for the little dachs.
Tom was shown as a junior and took ESTJW16 title, was also BOS junior and Best Male and BOS of the whole breed.
Ups was 1st in veteran class with excellent. Liina saved the day by being Best Bitch 1 and BOS with CACIB and ESTW16.
Both breeds were judged by Anett Edlander.
On Sunday, we had Baltic Dachshund Winner 2016, the specialty.
Tom repeated the day before by being Best Male, winning Baltic Dachshund Junior Winner 2016 title and being BOS.
Ups was BOB veteran and BOS, finished his Estonian Veteran Champion and added Baltic Dachshund Veteran Winner 2016 to his titles. And she took also BISS4 Veteran!
Little Mõmmi was out second time and repeated the BOB baby and won the BISS Baby competition under Jaroslav Svec. Breeds were judged by Malgorzata Supronowicz.
Thank you judges, thank you Anne Toompalu and Ilme Kukk for handling my dogs at the specialty on Sunday!
