A Lot of  things  has  happened.

First of all,  my  godboy "Sherry" has  now  finally  come to  Finland  and  he is living  in family  Grön. Boys  has also  new  webpages, as an very special  swedish  boy   really needs  those.
Thank You  Kerstin Persson (kennel Poetry´s) and   Henric Frycstrand (kennel Dewmist) that  Kati  got  her new boy.

Hyvä Pikkis!

Greetings earthlings!
A lot of  things has happened  after last update. Dear "Jake" got his CHAMPION tittle  from Finland, just   what   we hoped and really waited, since  now I really love judge Rajko Rotner,  kisses and  hugs! 

Bassets has   done also very  nice at shows and at Kuopio we had also their  speciality on friday. Quite busy  weekend,  but I managed that. I was there alone and  over nights  I had 5 dogs. Imagine how  much  cages and stuff I  had to every  morning fix in  right places at show ground. Our team  got some really  marvellous results, which I´m  very  happy for, specially when petit´s  got  high praises of their  true petit  type from all  special judges, really something to be proud of in  that  breed!  Not my dogs but still satisfied.
I   had good assistants; Kristiina,  Salla, Tanja & Tiia + one  one  day Sari  showed Pami on  our  breeder  group + Riikka   showed Jake in Sunday at BOBvet ring. On Saturday and Sunday Kristiina and I  asked hole  lot of peoples in  advance that if they could  help, but   almost  everytime, suddenly rest of the  girls arrived to help. So thank you also to everybody who  was scared for maybe they HAD to go to ring :-))

Weekend  was succesful also  in other part of Finland, particularly  at Orimattila  where was  blood tracking test and Hani got  her  last winner class 1st prize and become FINNISH TRACKING CHAMPION! I was  quite  speechless  when I got  that information... my very first  PB champion.  I´m so happy and  proud! 

My tears  come easily in that CH. case  and thats  because on Friday I have already got an sad note from Kati,  Our (in fact their) Keke has gone to doggyheaven. He had severe and big  tumor inside his nose.  It was  weekend  with  really mixed feelings. I´m happy  for Keke that he could spend such an   nice life with Grön family, I  always  knew they are keeping  good care of  my  Ruusberg, so I had  no  worries to rehome Keke to them 7 years ago. Loosing a  best friend  is  hard, you never  get used to that, even if you  have had  dogs  for ages.

6 pack of puppies has  grown nicely, they have   been very active all their  now almost 3 weeks of living, but thats not an miracle as mother is Moonika and  father is Tauno.  I try to put some old photos and   videos of them before Sawo shows  and shoot  some  new also ... maybe ... someday... I´ll try ;-)

Then it  was time  for world winner show,  we travel  there: me, Kristiina & Sirkka, we had only  PBGVs with us: Curt, Täplä,  Mäykky & Pami.
Our journey went  well and also  everything in showplace  was nice.  Yes,  we had to line up  for some time in parkink hall as well, but  thats  ok, we  was in  right time in ringside to get  good place and  to settle  down and  to change clothes. Our team wasn´t in its best  condition,  but  we  got  nice results to all our dogs. And also  one tittle, which  was won by Pami at veteran class,  so  she is  our new veteran world winner.

Curt best finnish owned male: ch class 4th.

Täplä was 3th  in ch bitches and Mäykky got EXC  also.

PHOTOS  PBGV:  here  You can find some photos  what  we took in Stockholm. Not so  good quality, but  something to look at. After  pbgv´s  we had little  time  to  goldens, but  just  the end. Here  You can  see the GOLDEN PHOTOS .
