Last weekend we made a looong trip, just me, Lava and her kids.

First we went to Sundsvall for the All Breed KC show “Mitt Norden INT”.
My mom came there to cheer and she brought Keios. So happy to see them both!
And Britzyk was there working as ring steward, so Keiron was also there. We couldn’t miss that opportunity to take a family photo…

And what about the show? Lava did GREAT! Again BOB, and AGAIN noticed in the finals: Best of Group-3!! 😀
This the 8th show in a row that she has been noticed in the group, placed 5 times and shortlisted three. So amazing! 


After the show we drove down to Enköping for the Sighthound Specialty (Group 10 + primitive sighthounds from Group 5).


To this show, we had entered all the puppies for the french specialist Evelyne Desquartiers Diacquenod.

The judge was super nice, and seemed to be very excited over the quality of the entered cirnechi, 7 in total.

All puppies got super critique and HP, Loke won BOB-puppy and Elda BOS.


And then it was time for the “combat of the year” – Lava VS Lucky!! 😉 

(Lucky del Borgo di Pratica Anharbn – Group Winner in Finland and several group placements).
Both are excellent movers, and I think I enjoyed this BOB-competiotion more than any before. Such a joy to run against so tough competition! 

Well, the judge finally had to make a choise, even if it was very very hard – And LAVA WON!! Whohooo!! 😀

Plus, it was great to meet my dear friend Inka (Iosono Cirnechi and IG), who at our last meeting in Finland won it all. So now we are even. 😉


After a little wait, it was time for the BIS-finals. Loke first out in Best Baby, judge was Ann Cuthbert. I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many babies on a specialty, usually it’s 3 or 4, but this time must have been 10 or so.
He behaved like a pro, and to our absolute delight and surprise, he was placed 2nd!!! Weei!! 😀

But the success doesn’t end there: In the BIS final, Lava was first shortlisted to top 4, and after a thrilling final run, judge Ray Lindholm placed us Americano Style, in running order – Lava BEST IN SHOW-3!!! 😀 😀

I am so very very happy and grateful to all my friends who cheered us on, and to the judges who appreciate our dogs!
If you have read this far, don’t stop! Below are the results and judges comments from the specialty, and Lava’s is the kind you’d want to put in a frame…
