On the New Year’s day, we changed our regular plan and instead of Krasna Hora we made a trip to Spulka lookout tower. Despide the muddy route, we had nice time.
On the second January Saturday, we travelled to Germany, where the Nürnberg CACIB took place. The poodles were judged by Mr. Kay Smulczynski. Minon was entered in champion class and awarded excellent 1, CAC-DPK, res. CAC-VDH (after a champion) so we finally finished German Champion. The German champion is generally very hard to get, we did it with 7 CAC certificates 🙂
I’ve had some days off on the third January week, so we could make a plenty of walks out 🙂
The general prove at international show in Prague wasn’t excellent, just very good…We were a little bit surprised by a judge P. Richard who rewarded us twice excellent before, but not angry at all. We spent nice day with our dear friends both dog and human. An Minion was for me the nicest Barbie dog of the show!
World Dog Show 2017 Leipzig
I was planning to attend this dog show for a long time, but finally decided not to enter due to planned judge. About three days before the last entry deadline there happened a judge change due to the number of the dogs entered. For me it was a sign so I changed our show agenda for the rest of the year and entered Minion…
On Friday November 10 we started our trip for Leipzig very early morning. Realization team Me and Minior and Support team – our Mommy.
In a half a way my Mom asks me:
– What is the show we are comming like?
– Mom, we are going for the WORLD DOG SHOW…!
– Allrigh, we haven’t been at the world dog show for a while … 😀 😀
About 5 kms before Leipzig it started to rain. We arrived in time so we parked near the hall and we were lucky to move to our place without the rain. Then it was pouring for whole day.
The atmosphere was wonderful…and the stress level just on one tenth as ususal…You usualy go to the world dog show just to show yourselves, not to place…
Minion in very hard competition won the open class fawn/silver bitches (in Germany this colours compete on the class level). For me totally wonderful, incredible…just the best! So officially, ANNIVERSARY PEARL Ambershadeds Ex. 1, CAC-VDH! Our ring was judged by Ms. Jadranka Mijatovic from Croatia.
Sorry for the pic quality, it was taken by a cracked len of my Moms cell phone (better said, by a bite len by our Diamond)
We walked the expo center area – BTW wery nice spaces – and led way back home.
We just loades Mini in the car and it started to drip again. We loaded the rest of our baggage in the car and it started to pour. We managed to load everything just in time!
The route way home wasn’t fine at all – the traffic jam at the highway from Leipzig…and in Prague I guess there was a Martian landing at least…but we arrived safely after 4 hours driving..
We celebrated our big success just a little bit on the evening, we made a big muddy walk on the weekend.
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…
A video from the class
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.
In mid October I had an opportunity to attend a seminar about insemination in dogs. The seminar was composed of two blocks. The first was led by a vet Ms. Prinosilova and dealt with male reproduction and insemination. The second block was led by a vet Mr. Vitasek a dealt about the reproduction and insemination from the femaile point of view. I must say I really appreaciate the knowledge of both speakers who had really deep insight of their issues and this is what is always really fine to listen to.
Diamond came for his regular grooming visit, this time after very unregular period. Popular sibling’s garden running with Minion took place.
…and of Donatello (his resemblance to Asterix’s and Obelix’s dog is just casual 🙂
We also got pictures of China on trip. It it sure that poodles are great outdoor dogs.
Two days with China
On the national holiday China came to visit us and also her teddy bear coat got a grooming. Before that the obligatory sibling’s running must have happen.
According to the dogshow next day it was neccesary to equip China properly for the evening walk in the rain 🙂
The next day (29/10) both girls were entered at international dogshow in Prague. The poodles were judged by a breed specialist from Belorussia, Ms. Galina Zhuk.
Minion in open class won the fist CAC for the Czech championships, the second CACIB for the international championship and BOS title. Really nice results for only 16 months of age and for still not showing herself as I know she could, but we are working on that.
China in junior class won excellent 1. This time without a title, but I appreciate she spent all the boring day on the dogshow feeling fine and not bored at all.
I had expected exactly contrary results, that confirms my actual life approach that I should stop thinking about things and let them flow…
Both girls made me really happy, they are super fine and cool 🙂 The picture of both of them together will arrive later (finally not only pictures of both girls together arrived, but a lot of other pictures of them alone. I added them to whole the post).
And for the end – one gorgeous portrait of China 🙂
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 🙂
The first February Saturday me and Maja have participated an international dogshow in Brno. We didn’t need any title from this show, we just participated to have fun. Poodles were judged by Mr. Nikola Smolič from Croatia.
We had a nice day the last August Sunday with Maja at IDS Mladá Boleslav (CZ). The poodles were judged by a breed specialist Jaroslava Ovesná (CZ).
Maja showed herself perfectly and was commended by the judgge for the type, nice head, pigmentation, topline and neck-set with result Ex. 1 CAC, res. CACIB. I’m very happy!
And finally after more than two years of searching I managed to find suitable rubber bands for the home oil banding which are not bursting! Laineé wrap bands. Pink colour was a clear choice for a blondie 🙂
