SHOWING AND HAVING A WONDERFUL TIME WITH TEIJA AT KENNEL HEINAARON
This december we had signed in for the Finnish winner
in Helsinki. We were invited to live at Teijas house. She and
her dogs lives in a cosy house with a lot of space for the dogs
outside. We really liked our stay there, and hope we can come
back sometime. Teijas dogs were really outgoing and we feeled
very loved :-) On Saturday we went training with the dogs at a
field belonging to Teijas sister. Pheasants were placed out, and
both Valborg and Stella had a useful trainingsession. Stella got
a good contact with a pheasant and after that she was really determind
to find more birds!
Sunday we took place in Teijas camper and set for the show. 21
Bracchi and 5 Spinoni. We had not any expectations for the show,
but we really looked foreward to see all the examples of our breeds.
Out of 21 Bracchi 6 got excellent, and Valborg was not one of
them. Best of Breed was the veteran Heinaaron Tuo Tulipano and
she also managed to be 2. BIS veteran at this show. In the Spinonering
things went better, I must say a lot better. Stella was one of
3 junior females, and there was one male (came unfortunately too
late)and one open class female, so there was a though competition.
BUT, the judge really loved our little Stella, and awarded her
1. in juniorclass and then Best of Breed with CAC!!! We are so
happy for this. Now Stella got two titles, FINJW and FINW 08.
And as the youngest in the Spinonering, only 10 months. Here follows
some pictures from our stay in Finland. Thank you again Teija
for letting us live with you, we are so happy that we came!
