Wels in December

We’ve just completed our more than succesful show season in Wels, Austria, on December 2.

This year’s Wels CACIB has seem to be smaller than in the last years to us, but definitely it didn’t matter – more space around the rings, more space in the stall halls 🙂 For me there was a perfect linghtning – warm white light in which Minion has her own colour (doesn’t look like too light).

Minion was entered in the champion class and was excellent! She won Ex. 1, CACA, CACIB, best female and BOB under Ms. Iris Urschitz! I’m very proud that I can announce she became a new Champion of Austria and new interchampion (C. I. B.)! The best end of the show season ever!

Tulln 2017

We liked the last year show in Tulln. This year there appeared interesting names in the judge list for poodles, so me and Minion decided to go there. We were accompained by our Veronika who cares about our and our dog’s physical and mental health. The main goals of our trip was most of all having fun, getting some CACA certificates (as we don’t need any CACIB for the moment) and to purchase barbie pink rubber bands that we ran out of more than half a year ago and that I wasn’t able to get anywhere.

We started our trip on Saturday early morning, we arrived to the expo center about nine a. m. We were lucky to park relatively nearby our hall.

On Saturday, the poodles were judged by Mr. Klaus Strack from Germany. The judge was very thorough and was dictating very very long critiques (desgracially for us in German and hand written, so we are not able to read that and translate…). Minion was awarded Ex. 1, CACA in the champion class.

Some final grooming before the ring…

…and fill my pockets with dog treatment bisquits (with input quality check by Minion)…

Then we had to show us to the class judge…

And once more enter the ring for the CACIB competition…

Finally, the indian summer arrived and whole day was sunny. We were accommodated in Purkersdorf near Tulln. On a walk distance there were two Nature parks with animanls and a perfect hiking trail. So we spend whole afternoon outside walking in the nature and in the city.

We walked along the red tourist mark with beautifully prepared nature trail…

In the Naturpark there lives a whole wild boar family in very nice virgin-forest-looking exhibit, eating acorns…

As perfect three blondies, we tried to make a selfie on the top of the boar observatory. I must post all the three pictures, because we three aren’t able to agree on which one we look prettier 🙂

We continued walking from the park to the city center.

The second day the weather wasn’t as nice, but it still was good. On Sunday the poodles were judged by Hungarian judge, Ms. Monika Halmi. Even though the critique is in English, I wasn’t able decrypt all the hand written words – but from what I recognized the critique sounds pretty good. Minion got also Ex. 1, CACA from champion class on Sunday.

And for having fun – while you think you are photographed and you’re recorded…

We started our trip home at about half past two p. m. According the the traffic situation on the Czech side the GPS drove us trough district roads whole the way back home. We were lucky not to get stuck on the motorway and the route took us about just 30 minutes more than the usual way.
