    SpringShow 2017

    Today was held unofficial Springshow 2017 for labradors, by Estonian Labrador Retriever Club, we were happy to participate and took home some fabulous results. This lovely event was judged by Ilona Araja (kennel Gilbron Pride), Latvia. I Just want to mention, that I´m a HUGE fan of those little lovely shows, so I´m so happy, that other clubs are also organizing them!

    We were participating with Gracey, Ragazza and Damaskus, cause it´s kind of a similar show to a puppyshow, but there is also a beginners class, for adult dogs, but as our big girls are a bit more than beginners, slightly said, so they stayed home today.

    Little Gracey had her second show and she won a big strong baby female class, then took BOB Baby and finally ended the day as BEST IN SHOW Winner!!!! About 50 labradors entered, we are super happy and proud of our little chocolate girl, it´s just her second time out in the ring and she takes her second BIS win – WOW, What a start! Today handled so nicely by her owner Reilika!

    Ragazza was out in a junior class, and as a somekind of a little tradition she ended up 4th in quite big junior class – hope to brake this tradition soon, but she was showing herself nicely, so I´m still happy and proud of her!

    Damaskus won BOB Veteran today, shining as always – happyhappyhappy!

    Thank you Organizers, for this lovely show, all participants for this lovely atmosphere, the judge for all the lovely critiques about our labradors – we are happy and proud! 

    Gracey – BEST IN SHOW

    Finnish Main Labrador Retriever Speciality Show

    On 28.01.17, we went to Finland to their Main Labrador Retriever Speciality show. I have wanted to go and show my dogs in Finnish speciality for a while now, and finally there was a superb opportunity to do so. I loved this show, the apmosphere, people, so many wonderful labradors around – it really became one of my favourite shows of all and I definitely plan to visit it again. Next time I plan to take Dassu with us, he stayed home with mom this time!

    First I showed lovely Nora in biiiig open class, she got excellent and was really close of getting a placement! After a while, I showed my queen Bee in the same ring, who was totally naked and looked like a junior among the CH class dogs, she also got excellent with a really lovely critique, but obviously was not placed – I totaly agree with the decision! But I was so proud to show those two, thank you, Reilika, for your trust! 

    I also had a baby Ragazza with me, who is already a puppy actually. She was shown in 7-9 months old puppy class, as it was her 7months Bday on the same day. Oh boy how this little one showed herself! We even got compliments from the ring steward. I was a bit shocked actually, I thought she will be good, but she was like a proffessional, like she had done it for years! So she won her class, out of six, if I remember correctly. After that we had to compete to Best Female Puppy “title”, next to us was a younger puppy class winner, who had just won in her class, out of 20+ dogs! Ragazza took the “title” and was Best Female Puppy – WOW!!! In the evening we had an honour to participate on the BIS competition, where she took BOS Puppy and BIS II Puppy next to a lovely yellow boy! I´m really proud of this little showgirl!

    Fist of all, thank you, Reilika and Erkki, for being already basically as crazy as I am, and for the best company, there is never a dull moment with you two! and THANK YOU to, Ragazzas breeder Beata and her co-owner Eva, for your trust!!! We are on our way to make you two very proud – I promise!

    12-13.11.2016 Weekend in Latvia

    We had a really lovely and a bit adventurous weekend in Latvia, in November!

    On Saturday, we had 8.group speciality show, judged by Jukka Kuusisto from Finland. First I showed our little babygirl Ragazza for the first time, and in nice competition, she won the baby females (3) and after that she also took BOB Baby! A bit tired from the long day, we also had fun in BIS Baby competition and she took BEST IN SHOW BABY 3! I´m so happy and proud, also congrats to her co-owner, Eva!
    Damaskus was shown in veteran class, where he took 2nd excellent. He is totally out of coat and looks so thin because of that.
    And another yellow star of the day, TSUNAMI Bella Mare won female CH class and after that Best Female in lovely competition and then she also took BEST OF BREED with style! Nothing for us from the big ring this time, but I´m really proud of her anyway – she is just amazing! (sorry about the “smiley” face on the BOB photo, but I just had such a stupid face there.) But my black & yellow brace did excellent in the big ring – BIS 4 BRACE for Damaskus & Tsunami!

    The next day, 13.11.16, we participated in Baltic Winner´16 show. Damaskus was again second in veteran class with excellent and he also got cq and vet cac, so he can now be confirmed as Latvian Veteran Champion – I´m SOOO HAPPY!!! Tsunami won the champion class with excellent, cq!
