March 23-24th I was in Riga, Latvia. The results were really nice. On Saturday Sauli, S.Lightning Strike, went BOS with cac & CACIB, and Zirka, S. Dreams Gone Wild 2nd best female, gaining cac and res-CACIB that will turn into CACIB. On Sunday Sauli took a day off since we also had another boy with us, that is Timmy, S. Theme For A Dream. Timmy got BOB over Saturdays's group winner bitch, and went finally BIG-4. So, CACIB, cac and Lv Ch also for him. Zirka got another reserve that will again turn into CACIB.
A week later I showed Sauli in Lahti international under Mr Hans van den Berg. I must say I was quite surprised when he went all the way to BOB, finishing his Finnish championship (4th official show in Finland, so three CC's altogether - not bad) and getting another CACIB. In tough group competition he was chosen to last five finalists, but finally was not placed.
After that I had a tough week. I rarely am sick, but this time I was attacked by a fever that ended up to a pneumonia. Still not in my best shape, Armi got her puppies, two black boys. I had entered two dogs to Tallinn winner show April 14th, but due to "circumstances" was not able to go. Instead, a friend of mine took my dogs over! Nora did a great job and returned home with two brand new Tallinn Winners and Estonian champions, Sauli (S.Lightning Strike) and his sister Nila, Serene Moonlight Shadow. That was already third CACIB to Sauli in only three weeks and three shows. Sorry no pics from there.
