Second best female of poodle specialty for Minion

Rose Poodle SpecialtyRůžičková klubová výstava

On Sunday May 28 we’ve entered in a Prague poodle specialty. The weather forecast was predicting a tropical day and we had to spent whole day closed inside instead of being somewhere by the pool.

Minion (ANNIVERSARY PEARL Ambershades) was for the last time (and also probably for the first time 🙂 entered in the intermediate class. She was alone in the class and was rewarded by a judge Mr Mario Funk from Germany as excellent 1, CAC – this was the last certificate required for complete the Champion of the Czech republic. I’m happy to announce she’s also my first home-bred champion. In competition from the open class she finally got a Club Winner also! I’m very proud on my little girl. Pitures taken by Vendy.

We’ve made it through the hot afternoon and in the finals happened something really unexpected by me. Minion won the best standard female from all the colours and the second best female of the show from all sizes. Really uncredible success for me!

My biggest win of this day was keeping Minion in good mood until the finals and properly hydrated in this kind of wather  🙂

Breeding examination

Our blond youngsters Minion and Diamond passed their breeding examination by this speciality and they’re both aproved for breeding under FCI regulations.

Show weekend in Erfurt, Germany

On Friday May 5 we led to German Erfurt for National Show on Sunday and International Show on Saturday together with our friends Ruddie, Choco and Vendy.

We’ve been accomodated 10 minuts driving from the expo hall. The accomodation was very nice, in an extremely calm village. We missed a knive in the kitchent, but there were plenty of wine glasses 🙂

On Saturday there were entered about 2000 dogs in 10. Nationale Rassehunde Ausstellung. We had to wain in half an hour long entrance qeue that was a little bit unpleasand according to arrival “on time”.

On Saturday National dogshow the poodles were judged by a German judge Ms Doris Kühn. Only 49 poodles were entered. Our very nerd barbie girl Minion (ANNIVERSARY PEARL Ambershades) at 22 months of age got Excellent 1, CAC DPK, CAC VDH and BOB and according to translator also very nice critique. In the finals we hadn’t placed. We vere pleased (and surprised) by a ribbon for the BOBs.

On Sunday, there were about 2300 dogs entered and we arrived a little bit earlier than a day before and have parked on better place with a good access even with the cages and no entrance queue. There were entered 80 poodles at Sunday15. Internationale Rassehunde Ausstellung and theese were judged by Ms Carmen Fischer from Germany. Minion had another successful day and won Excellent 1, CAC DPK, CAC VDH, CACIB and BOB!

Summarized, we had a nice trip and also brought home excellent results. We still have points to improve in our ring presentation, and we are working on them.

Minion in the age of 22 months has 4 big German CACs for the German champion (that is one of the difficult tittles in Europe). We’ve extended her BOB collection to number five and she also has 4 CACIBs. In comparison with her dad’s results we still have a way to go, but probably we never manage to be as successful due to our dogshow-dilatoy attitude 🙂

We had a nice time, the expo hall environment was fine, we appreciated wide selection of food offer – even though we ate a true hungarion langos for two days and theese we the best in my life 🙂

The weather was unexpectedly sunny both days, on Sunday 19 °C when we were leaven the expo. They route back home was a little bit complicated by two closures of the highway near Dresden and Usti nad Labem. But we managed it!
