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.

Coronation clubshow 2017

On Sunday March 12 me and Minion participated a Coronation clubshow in Prague (CZ). We spent a nice and even long day with our doggie and human friends. The greatest experience from whole day was without doubt a delivered pizza for together lunch. I really don’t understand why I didn’t think of it before 🙂

The clubshow was judged by Ms. Liane Kubbe from Germany from Ahornstreet kennel. I very appreciate when the judge in not “colour blind” and give a chance to modern colours – even if breeds blacks and whites. BTW the best in show winner was a silver standard.

There are few ring pics from Eva Mizerová:

You can see it is possible to show a poodle on a loose lead. Although FCI is last few years “promoting” reasonable showing (free stack and loose lead), the judges are still tolerating dogs being strangled on a show lead in movement)…(very sincerely I admit I also used to show like this before…)

There is a pic of very concentrated blondie

And finally a demonstration that the name of Minion is omen nomen actually (no, she is really not a medium :))

The only glitch is that because of time reasons we didn’t use a hairspray (I wouldn’t be able to bath her after the show).

And what about the results?

ANNIVERSARY PEARL Ambershades in the age of 22 months, in intermediate class was rewarded excellent 1, CAC. In the finals in relatively huge competition (not sure exactly, due to show statistics there should be 8 bitches) Mini placed #3 best standard female of the show that made me really happy 🙂 We made a little progress in Minion’s “nerdness” and moved other step toward happy presentation, she even made few happy jumps 🙂 We manage to show a natural pleasure one day 🙂

And finally a pictures from final placement from Bára Brožková, huge thx! 🙂

Succesful weekend of the blond Anniversary sisters

This weekend was very succesful for our blond ANNIVERSARY blond sisters – China and Minion. The photo documentation is in process, just few pics by now and some more will be hopefully added later.

On Saturday, China (ANNIVERSARY CHINA Ambershades) was entered in the poodle specialty (first show ever for China either her ownerlady and a little ownerlady in the competition “Child and a dog”). In the youth class won Ex. 1, CAJC and Junior club winner with a very nice critique from Ms. Anna Törnlöv from Sweden. Also won the first prize in the “Child and a dog” competition. Thanks for the pictures to the owners and Teschiro kennel.

Minion had her day on Sunday being entered in the youth class in the Prague International dog show. She got Ex. 1, CAJC, BOJ and BOS and very nice critique from Mr. Nils-Arne Törnlöv from Sweden. His words warmed my heart (“I love this bitch, she will be BOB next year”). Wonderful pictures from Vendy Šlechtová.

We had two nice visitors – Tony (ANNIVERSARY TIN Ambershades) and his owners and in the afternoon also China with her ownerlady. Big thanks for photo of Tony to Hana Kašparová.

Big thanks to everybody involved, we had a nice day 🙂

Minion in the youth class for the first time

Minion was entered a Prague clubshow on March 13, for the first time in youth class. The poodles were judged by Ms. Petroula – Effrossyni Richard Douma from France.

Minion became excellent 2 with a very nice critique:

Feminine head, small dark eye, compact type, very nice topline, correct tail set and carriage, excellent angullation, coat bit soft, nice apricot colour.

Anniversary babies at Anniversary show

Sometimes, things take their own direction despite our plans. Sometimes it is good. I’ve entered Minion to Anniversary club show in Prague, but finally I had a different plan for this Sunday. Two day before the show date I was persuaded to change my mind and participate to support Minion’s brother Tony who was entered, and his owners. Thank to this change of plan Minion’s brought home a big cup and other prizes. Tony was also successfull, both of them received nice critiques.

The baby class was judged by Mrs. Naďa Klírová (CZ), the final competitions by her and Mr. Laurent Heinesche (LUX) and Mr. Jussi Liimatainen (FIN).

Tony (ANNIVERSARY TIN Ambershades) in baby class very promissing 1.

Tony is like a torpedo, he combines a show joy of his dad Charlie and an endless flow of energy of his mom Maja.

Minion (ANNIVERSARY PEARL Ambershades) in baby class very promissing 1. In the final competiotions Best female of baby class the best hope in show!

Minion definitely showed up her qualities, especially to people she was said to be short and fat of.

Both of them made me very proud and happy. They’ve great characters and are contactive and really happy buddies.
