September 2012

We had a long weekend vacation at the end of September. Our family took the ferry to Åland and spent three days there. The girls, Penny and Pessi entered Eckerö International dog show with very nice results. Pessi gained the BB-4 place in tough company and Penny was chosen to be BB-1 and also best opposite sex.
This was Penny's last show at least for a long time. Maybe when she will be at the veteran class we will enter some shows. Time will tell. This weekend was very nice way to end her show career. Now it is time to concetrate to the planned litter of hers.  


We have had some dog show trips during the beginning of this Summer.


Penny participated her first blood tracking competition in Säyhtee with Timo. She gained 37 points in open class. Very nice job for the first real competition ! Here is the judge's critique in Finnish:

Ohjattu lähtö. Penny jäljestää pääosin ilmavainua hyväksikäyttäen rauhallista vauhtia edeten suoraviivaisesti jäljen päällä tai sen välittömässä läheisyydessä. Kaikki osuudet ovat hyvää jäljestystä paitsi kulmilla. 1. makuun Penny merkitsee erinomaisesti, jatkaa kulmalta suoraan tarkastamaan jälkeä. Sitä ei löydy, joten tuomitaan ensimmäinen hukka. Toinen kulma oikaistaan niukasti, joten toinen makuu jää merkitsemättä. Kaadolle tullaan ilmavainulla ja se kiinnosti. Hieno suoritus koiralta.'

At the same time Pessi entered Mänttä-Vilppula dog show. She got her first cac there being BB-1 and BOS ! We had the most nicets weekend in the beginning of July. Penny's eight puppies out of the Agent litter came to Laukaa dog show. Five of them entered the show. Sunny, Miss Sunnypenny's Agent Sugar got her second cac being BB-1 and BOS. We also entered the breeder's class and got HP and also BOB breeder's.
After the show we drove to the cottage Niina had rented for us during the night. We enjoyed great compeny, good food, cold drinks,sauna and beautiful weather plus a lot of mosquitos! The owner of the Agent litter's sire Kirsi had the possibility to join us too, so we were very lucky to enjoy her company during the weekend.
Thank you all, you mean so much to us ! 


Pessi, Rommi and Luca entered Tampere International Dog Show under judgement of Mrs Elizabeth Walmsley. Dog entry of the day 34, only six of them gained EXC & CQ. Miss Sunnypenny's Agent Promise, Rommi was one of them. His result was: INT EXC-1 BM-2 Cac and Res- cacib which will be confirmed as his first cacib. Rommi's critique: Very Good type. Good head proportions, eye, ear, front, bone, feet, body proportions, rear end reach. Good movement.
Well done, Jasmin & Rommi ! 


Penny and me did a roadtrip to Roskilde, Danmark. We enjoyed most wonderful company. Thank you Liisa & Pelle !
Didn't make any fabulous results in the shows, breed entry was 50 dogs. But we spent some luxoroius time together and it was defenately needed one :)


Penny, Pessi and Luca took part to the Tallinn Winner Dog Show.
We had very nice weekend all together. It was our first show trip with Sini and Luca. And with quite nice results! Luca got the title Tallinn Junior Winner 2012 and got also Estonian J-Cac. And his sister Pessi did also great job: She defenately surprised us! The judge Janusz Opara placed her BB-1 with J- Cac. So that made her both Tallinn Junior Winner 2012 and Tallinn Winner 2012. Penny gained the BB-4 place.
Thank you Sini and Luca, we really enjoyed your company! This was the first trip together but I'll bet not the last one !
