Oh yes. In May, Elliot finished his international championship. At first, it was the only goal for this year with him. But he had some nice success along the summer, so here we are, showing every now and then until the end of this year. Group win and several placements, Baltic Winner title, Swedish championship to name some.

Where to start... I realise I should update more often.
Not exactly summer, but my show year started on our main specialty show in March. Long time breed specialist Michael Hammerich from Truly Yours fame, Denmark, was judging. We had a huge entry of 50.
The star of the day was Elliot, Ch Serene Stargazer, who ended up 2nd best male after Sanna's visiting star.
Meri's young son Marlon, Serene Seagram's Seven Crown, surprised us all by being 3rd best male with CC. Marlon was also BOB-junior. Little Elmo (Serene Streamline), Elliot's barely 6 months old son, was BOS-puppy with a beautiful critique. Also Kieran and Odessa got excellent, so a very good day for us!

Elliot's dam Iris has been shown a couple of times before her final retirement. Redhead juniors Tarmo & Odessa have been out with nice results as well. Below left & middle Iris the veteran (Ch Madiroc's She's Somethin For Serene), right Odessa (Serene Sea The Stars Over Adunaic)
