Trip to Prague CACIB

On the first December Sunday we made a trip to Prague CACIB show to show a big dogshow world to Jerry.

First of all, I had to bath and groom a hairy-monster adolescent not groomed for few months.

I was pretty contented with the result, considering Jerry’s back hair had about 5 cm before grooming 🙂

 

Since the last grooming Jerry matured and I must say he’s handsome boy 🙂

I’ve read a lot of hates for this autumn Prague show. The amount of people there was terrible as they made a one day show instead of two days. But Jerry was such a sweatheart! For the first time in this big world and did really well, I think even better than usualy Minion does, as she hates this kind of crowded places.

We were training

Very slightly…we strarted to train for the show ring 😀

Charlie in wellness

Charlie had a month wellness stay in our house. He had trouble with back pain due to his age and a former knee injury that hadn’t been excersized properly. Charlie was practicing hardly twice a day for gaining correct body musculature. In the end of his stay he had a manual therapy. Back home Charlie arrived moving freely and painlessly, thinner and generaly happier and at least five years mentally younger. Let’s see, how it develops in the future.

Jerry best junion male

On Sunday December 16 Jerry participated his first show ever. Trully historical moment. I’ve chosen one of my favourite clubshows – small Advent club specialty with great atmosphere.

Jerry is happy and funny adolescent, there’ll be a lot of work to make our show presentation perfect 🙂 Jerry baited me with ambling but also had nice rings troting properly. Finally was awarded with club junior CC from the class and #1 best junior male all sizes and colours from the finals. Poodles were judged by Ms Alena Kostalova.

Jerry was supported by his elder brother Hurmar and his ownerladies. We’re all pictured below.

We’re also pictured by a pro-photographer:

We really enjoyed this day, except a tragical experience in the hotel restaurant with an international impact. What a shame! The next time I will call for pizza delivery 🙂

I got wonderful christmas gift from our dear Finnish friends. Thank you very much, girls!

Christmas

Our Christmas were very very typical. The girls had a fight right under the christmas tree because of one of the new toys. On the next day we left for some fresh air to the mountains. After couple of years (and even more) we had wonderful white chrismas holidays.

On the way for the mountains we made a stop for a walk and we climbed to ruins of some former fortress.

Cestou na hory jsme si dali venčící mezipřistání a vyšplhali na zbytky nějaké tvrze:

For the rest of the week, we had views like this one…

On every day we had at least one realy big walk trip.

Tess, being five week after the knee ligament surgery, had kind of saving mode. I must it was self-denial for her 🙂 My barking back pack made a lot of smile on other tourist faces 😀

The fresh air realy exhausts 🙂

We had such a nice time <3

The second half of our dog pack on the last day of December made a trip to watchtower Spulka.
