What an extraordinary year it has been! Yes, everyone knows why.
Very few dog shows, still some nice wins. Two beautiful litters in summer.
Armi's singleton boy Gahan, Serene Black Celebration, participated in a few shows during the year. Four shows altogether, two CC's, one res-CC and CQ in our huge specialty show in November.
Meri, Adunaic Seven Serene Seas, my wild redneck, also got her first CC in her only show in Finland.
Littermates Nila and Sauli did well in August, the first time out this year. In only two weeks Nila, Serene Moonlight Shardow, gained three more CACIBs to her credit while her litter brother Sauli, Serene Lightning Strike, finished his Int Ch with style in Estonia - winning Group 1st under well respected breeder judge Patricia Nemirovsky de Alsina from Argentina. Now Sauli enjoys his life in short coat already.

My queen Armi, Serene Stairway To Heaven, also participated in one show after two years break. She ended up Best female 3rd in our specialty show in November among big entry. Two litter brothers from my last summer's litter, just 5 months old, also debuted in our specialty show. Both got a very nice experience, behaved nicely and got HP.
