We made our every-year-trip to Vaasa with "the gang" (Perttu and Anni :)). Bichons were judged by all-arounder Hans Lehtinen and results were pretty nice - Iivari was BM3 with res-Cacib and Venla was placed BB4.  Our real adventure started when we were driving back to home - the car decided not to move anymore, so we were stucked in the middle of nowhere.. Luckily we had so nice dog-show-friends who picked us up when driving back to Oulu.. :) Great thanks to Kirsi & Make for taking me, Anni and dogs with you and Elina & Kimmo who picked up boys with them.. Quite interesting trip! :)

Iivari won champions, was placed BM4 and  Venla won juniors (again!) and was BB2 with res-CC! We were quite happy of our little girls' start in showing.

Trip to Lithuania was finally here! Myself, Matti and dogs (Leevi, Iivari and Jenna & Olli ‘s Kiara) were headed to Vilnius - Lithuania Winner 2010 Show and Vilnius Cup ’10 Show. Like always, we had so tight schedule that only things we saw in Lithuania was a hotel, LitExpo Show place and highway.. Despite of that the trip was a quite success! 

In Saturday we had Leevi and Kiara in the ring and results were the best you can hope – Leevi was BOB, got his last CACIB and finished his C.I.B –title! He got also the title of LtW-10 and we could not be happier! Kiara was BB1, got CACIB, CC and finished her Lt Ch-title. In the big ring Leevi was selected amongst of final six best toy dogs. The judge was Ole Staunskjaer.
