First weekend of June, on Saturday, 03.06.17, we had Retrievers speciality in Estonia, held by Estonian Golden Retriever Society and judged by Jef Varrees from Belgium. It´s also one of my favourite shows, so I´m showing there every year, if possible! I truly Love that show, this year it was held in Vanamõisa, a breathtakingly beautiful place for a dogshow!
Our Results were following:

Next weekend, 11.06.17, we had a National dog show, star of the day was little Gracey, who took BOB Puppy and BIS 4 Puppy!!! Congrats, Reilika, you two were stunning in the ring!
Next day, 11.06.17, we had III, IV, VI, VIII group speciality show today in Estonia, in Vanamõisa. Labradors were judged by Moa Persson from Sweden, I added all my dogs under her, cause I really just wanted to get critiques from her and to show her, so I really did waited that show for a long time, but sometimes if you really wait dor something, things will just go the other way.
Super news first:
BELLISSIMA RAGAZZA ZGHM – BOB Junior, got her 2nd jcac, and she is still just 11months old and she is now only one step away from her first jch title and she took also BB3! She ended the day being BEST IN SHOW 4 Junior under breed(er) judge! I´m really happy and proud of her, she is a true sweetheart!
But so the sad part, I showed my veteran boy Damaskus, who got a really lovely critique, but sadly was limping a bit today, because of some mystical reasons. Actually, we went swimming yesterday, and while he ran into the water to get the dummy, there was some hole or something, so he probably got hurt a bit, in the morning he was totally fine, but because of the heat and tiredness it was probably enough for him. His description was lovey: “strong boy, 9years old, strong masculine head, typical kind expression, good neck, strong back for age, a bit long in body, a bit open in angulations, good forechest, excellent double coat, correct tail which he uses , unfortunately he´s limping in left front leg and cannot be judged.” (Damaskus is totally recovered by now!)
So, then I took Tsunami out, who I hoped will take the breed today, but no… she was also limping, I may know why, but still a big shock, but I still decided to show her, to get the critique, so the following words came: “excellent type, strong girl, classical labrador, well shaped head, kind expression, excellent neck and topline, ended with a wagging tail, correct angulations in front and back, barrel-ribcage, excellent forechest, strong bone, double-coat, unfortunately she´s limping in front, so cannot be judged.” When I heard the critique I had tears in my eyes, cause she was in such a show-mood today and having two of your beautiful dogs limping on a show and under a breeder judge, who you have waited for a long time, just feels so terrible! (Tsunami is also totally recovered by now)
Also huuuge congrats for Reilika and Gracey for BOB AND BIS I PUPPY ! Super proud of you girls!
Thank you, Reilika & Erkki for the best company, as usual and all the others! Also to organizers of those lovely shows!
And most importantly, THANK YOU Erik-Steven & Rahel for taking the best care of baby Andy , while we were at shows!
