in Finnish Winner Show under Tord
My biggest Thank You to all who congratulated us and celebrated with
us today! It was lovely to see so many friends there at the same
time. And it's probably needless to say that my heartfelt thanks
goes to Klara's breeder Ann
Swärd, who is this year celebrating two Cocker of the Year's,
Klara in Finland and Klara's half sister Bling-Bling (A One's
Fingers Crossed) in Sweden. That's something to aiming for :D!

10.8.08 I’m (almost…) out of words. A
One’s Teodora keeps amazing me weekend after weekend, and
I’m so proud of every thing she has achieved this year. At
Saturday we drove to Vesilahti where
breed specialist Merja Järnstedt (kennel Norvale) was judging. Klara
went Best of Breed and later 2nd Best of Group (huge integrated
group of FCI 7+8). Klara’s daughter Great
Escape But Not for You made her debut and won the Intermediate
And today we had 20 minutes drive (what a luxury!) to Helsinki
All Breed Show where Klara won her 9th Best of Breed this year
under Rony Doedijns, and she was also placed 3rd in Group by Eeva
But that wasn’t all our success for this weekend: Great
Escape Forever More won today 1st prize (Open Class, 45/50
points) from blood tracking test at Elimäki! Congrats to Vendela
again, I’m so VERY proud of you two!
Escape But Not for You will have puppies at week 36 :)
1-3.8.08 What a weekend! I and Klara traveled
at Thursday to Kuopio for three
International Shows. The trip was just great: at Friday Klara was
best of breed under Darren Bowey and she did it again at Saturday
when Per Iversen was judging! Later at Saturday Klara was also 3rd
best in Group 8, judged by Tamas Jakkel (kennel Black Mirage).
At Sunday we didn’t have any big success at Kuopio,
but same time at Helsinki Klara’s
son Great Escape I’m with Stupid
followed his mother’s example and went best of breed and 3rd best
in group 8. Huge congrats to Vendela!!!
Thanks for the lovely weekend to Vilma (the best kennel girl ever!)
and Iva :).
25.8.08 Great Escape Was Here and his
sister G.E. But Not for You
past their field tests with style. Thank you Tiina!

Teodora did it again: Best of Breed and Best in Group at Ypäjä
All Breed Show. She is just amazing! Her son Great
Escape Was Here made his debut and ended up as a 3rd best dog
with res-CAC. Also Great Escape Cometh I was first time in show ring
handled with style by his owner Outi Ellillä.
7.7.08 Great Escape But Not for You is hopefully having puppies
at September by Claramand Serious Black JW. More information here.
5.7.08 Another great day for us at Mikkeli National All Breed Show:
Great Escape Poetry Revisited was 2nd in Working Class after one
year show break with lovely critique. Rarely shown G. E. Dream
Believer showed herself with such a style and merriness, that she
ended up as 3rd best bitch with (her first) CAC! Congrats to her dedicated owner Antti Vesivalo and
special thanks to Niina Putkuri for handling “Pamela” in Best
Bitch competition. G.E. The One was also in Working Class and she
was 4th with excellent.
As happy as I was for all of these great results, my day was
again finalized by A One’s Teodora. She won the breed and also the
FCI Group 8. I was touched for her critique written by the breed and
group judge Ricky Loch-Romans:
“5 years old bitch. From nose to tail everything I like to see
in a cocker. High society. Merry, happy, cobby, sound. Movement is
29.6.08 Klara’s first tracking competition in Winner Class at
Ruovesi went fairly well for a first timer and she got 2nd prize.
Klara’s young daughter G. E. Swings with Jazz made her tracking
debut in Open Class and as her mom she got 2nd prize also. Well done
Jazzy and Eva!
28.6.08 Great news from Estonia: G. E. I’m with Stupid was
Best of Breed at Pärnu International Show with CAC and Cacib!
7.6.08 We had a wonderful day at Finnish Cocker Club’s
Speciality. Beside the lovely weather we also had great success this
year. Dogs and puppies were judged by Mr Michael Gadsby (kennel
Afterglow) and bitches were judged by Mr Michael Parkinson (kennel
Dillonpark). Five moths old Great Escape
Monster’s Ball made his debut and was 3rd in his class and his
sister G. E. Lucille Ball won her
class. G. E. I’m with Stupid
ended up as a 4th best dog with res-CAC, which I was very pleased.
But that wasn’t all… A One’s Teodora,
my dear funny little “Klara”, complete The Day by winning all
the bitches and finally the whole show. I’m still quite astonished
about this all, but very happy and proud of course! The amount of
joy and happiness Klara has brought to my life is immeasurable, not
just being a beautiful show dog, but making my life so much
enjoyable just being here with me every day. All our results and
some pictures from here.
Last but not least I’m VERY proud to tell, that Klara’s clever
daughter G. E. The One won again first prize
from the obedience test (161 points) at Heinola today. Welldone
Niina and “Pallo” (even the hangover cannot stop you :P)!
30.5.08 Great Escape The One “Pallo” won
first prize (179,5/200) from the obedience test at Orimattila with

Beginners Class. Way to go girls (and of course we want some more…)!
24.5.08 Nice visit at Helsinki International Show: Great
Escape Forever More won the Working Class and was 3rd best dog
with res-CAC. A One’s Teodora was 4th best
18.5.08 A One's Teodora's tracking season
starts officially at Virttaa: 1st prize (44/50 points) from
Open Class and she shifts to the Winners Class! Here's Klara's
critique wrote by judge Juhani Heikniemi:
"The start is pointed out to Klara, and she begins a
bustling tracking at a brisk speed. Klara works with both air
and ground scent. Throughout the first section Klara does check-up
rounds and marks the first angle. During the second section she does
small check-ups on both sides of the track, then marks the second
angle. At the end of the third section ends up quite far from the
track, but finds the way back. Handler prompts her dog when ever
needed. Klara points out the prey by sniffing it."
14.5.08 Great Escape Made by Mistake gave
birth a one black dog puppy. Both Siiri and the puppy are doing well.
4.5.08 Great Escape Forever More makes his
tracking debut with fine result: 2nd prize (35/50) from Open Class

test at Espoo. And then the mother of these boys, A
One´s Teodora, gained first price (41 points) in open class in
blood tracking test at Ruovesi! She truly made me proud and happy (once
In Klara´s critique judge Heikki Kulo wrote: "Eager start.
Right at the beginning wide direction checks. Klara progresses in a
fussy manner, therefore going from one side of the track to another.
First angle well, marking the wound bed. Cuts the second angle,
continues on to the third section of the track, comes back to check
the end of the second sections but doesn´t find the second wound
bed, instead finds a scent of the third section again. The end of
third section tracking is more exact, finds the dead animal, which
Klara stops to sniff. Klara tracks very enthusiastically, she needs
yet more concentration to her assignment."
