Merry Christmas & Have A Succesful Year 2010!
Last shows in this year
was held in Helsinki
– Finnish & Nordic Winner –Shows. We
had Venla and Iivari with us and Venla was debuting in junior class.
first day result was EXC4 and second day she got EXC. What a great
our little girl in the big show! Iivari showing himself only in Sunday
his result was EXC. Thanks again to Riikka who let us stay with her
didn’t care about big mess..).
Iivari's first litter is out of Iivari (Ch Petit Ami's It Keep The
Faith) and Iitu (Keymaker's Jet Set Lady). Iivari got four beautiful
babies in October - congrats to breeder Elina (kennel Keymaker's) and
Iitu's owner Laura!
Could I be more cute?
While I was
spending my time being sick at home, Iivari and Elina did wonderful
results in Sundsvall, Sweden. Iivari was placed BOB and became a new
Swedish Champion! In the big ring Iivari made his way to
Best In Show 3, way to go
our little boy!!
Iivari a new Swedish
Tampere with two things on our minds – finding the perfect
wedding dress and enter to dogshow. Results were following: we found
the dress but in the show we had to settle Iivari’s EXC3
placement. Otherwise Riikka’s Tahti did very good being BOB.
We got also great
news from Elina when she was in Siikajoki Puppyshow.. Our chubby girl
was BOB-puppy and finally BIG-1 in the pupshow– unbelievable!
We were so happy, great thanks to breeder!
Venla BIG-1 in puppy
After a little
brake we decided to take a dog show-trip to Helsinki and Porvoo. Iivari
turned two years old and our “last CC-hunting” was
about to start..
In Saturday we
had nice show in Tuomarinkartano, Iivari took his class but
unfortunately in best male class his placement was
“only” third. However we had a lovely evening in
Riikka’s place (thaks Riikka for hosting us!) and getting
ready for the next day show.
Iivari third best male
In Sunday we had
also Venla in puppies and she was showing herself very nice and was
placed second best bitch wit honour price. Iivari was on fire today and
he had some problems to concentrate, so I was a little nervous.. Anyway
Iivari won open class and finally showing himself to BOS with his 11.
CC and become a new Finnish
absolutely fabulous! What a great day in sunny Porvoo!

We made our last
”summer-show-trip” to Tallinn, Baltic Winner 2009
Show. We had a great time with very nice company & weather, but
unfortunately our show success wasn’t as good as we hoped.
Iivari was third best male and Leevi was fourth. Siru was placed BB4
and Riikka’s Tähti was BB2 with re-cacib. Congrats
to winners, household-Tyrnävä.
Dogs in Tallinn
In this weekend
we headed to Joensuu Karelia Shows. We rented a nice cottage from Eno
with Riikka and Perttu and had a little vacation as well.
Saturday was a
great show day for us – our little chubby girl, Venla was
BOB-puppy, Siru took her class and was placed BB3, Iivari was a little
uncomfortable with moving on the grass, but made his way to BM3 with
res-CC. And Leevi won males (handled by Matti ) and was finally BOB!

Sunday show was
held in rainy weather and results were following; Leevi was EXC2 and
Siru won juniors (again!) and was placed BB4. Also Riikka’s
Tähti showed herself today and was BB2 with res-CACIB -
unfortunately we have to wait a new C.I.B a little bit
After a wonderful
weekend in the gottage in Sotkamo we headed to Kajaani group show where
was also so hot-hot-hot! :) Luckily the dogs agreed still to move in
the ring regardless of the hot weather and results were quite pleasing.
Iivari was second best male with res-CC and Leevi was placed third best
male. Siru was “on fire” today and made her way to
third best bitch by winning her class, great! Also Venla was showing in
puppy show and she was second best bitch with honour price. The judge
was Tuula Plathan and with puppies Markku Kipinä.

are’nt much to say about of Mikkeli Int Show. Weather was
awful and the grass in the ring wasn’t good for
dogs’ movement. Therefore the success of this time was quite
limited; Iivari VG4, Leevi EXC3 and Siru VG4.
It was a time to
our hometown tour - welcome everybody to Oulu! :) In Friday was our own
Speciality Show where the judge was Bill Lee, from USA. The day was
quite interesting and full of “good” bichons, so I
had also two good ones and one excellent. Our little Venla made her
debut and was placed fourth in puppy class.
Venla in speciality
Iivari class winner in
Saturday was the
first Int show where the judge was Levente Miklos. Leevi was placed
EXC3 in champions and Iivari won his class and made his way to third
best male. Juniors where judged by Markku Kipinä and Siru got
Leevi in champions
Iivari and Venla in
Sunday show was
also held in beautiful weather and the judge was Günther
Ehrenreich. Leevi got excellent from champion class and Iivari
continued winning his classes and was finally placed second best male
with his 10. Finnish CC! Way to go
Because of all
the hassle with a new home I wasn’t able to participate to
this weekend’s shows. Luckily Elina was so kind to take Siru
(Keymaker's Diva For Sure) to Saturday’s Kemi Show
where she was placed VG1 with very nice critiques. In Sunday was
Iivari’s turn to travel and he was headed to Laukaa Show with
Elina. Iivari’s results were this time ECX3.
In the middle of
moving I visited again in Sweden with Leevi, Riikka and Tähti.
This time was a success for us, because Leevi was placed BOS with his
third Cacib! Now we just have to wait for cacib timelimit and then try
to get the last one!

beautiful town with a fabulous and long beach. The dogs had so much fun
with running in the beach! Also something very surprising happened

the judge was allrounder Paula Heikkinen-Lehkonen. Iivari was "on fire"
today, he was really showing himself (with a taste of temperament of
course :)). After the best male class Mrs. Heikkinen-Lehkonen asked me
about Iivari, ‘Have you changed his Duracell-batteries
lately?’. :) And the results were very pleasing;
Iivari was placed second best male with his sixth CC!
The tour was

Our Easter went
pretty well when we took a trip to Lappeenranta Dog Show. In Saturday
