Puppies!

Puppies!

Oh I wanted this so bad! Love puppies! And so they arrived and are now 1 week old and so fat and pretty! It’s 1 boy (black/tan) and 1 girl (sable). Not sure the coat yet but guess the boy is LC and the girl SC.
So grateful to Susanne Johansson who have the mother Bodil on breeding terms that she could deliver the puppies and have them in her home.

We visited them yesterday and had a big cuddle ♥ Now I really want time to pass a bit quicker till I get them home.

Father is Klas – Chi’s Lovely King Alonso. Son to 2 of my absolutely best dogs Chi’s Lovely Miranda and Chi’s Lovely William Page.
Mother is Chi’s Lovely Miss Maria, daughter to Chi’s Lovely Julia Capulet and Guichon’s Suited Up In Black.

2 new Champions!

2 new Champions!

So, so happy!

What a day with 2 new champions in one day!!

First out and in pouring rain was Gerry, he started in SC to win open class. Judge was Siv Jernhake. It was pretty nervous as it was also a foreign champion male that could take the CAC, and of course the other class winners. He ended up as BM 2 after a Ch and had some champions behind to, so when the judge chose between 2 and 3 I already understood he had won the CAC. Nice feeling in the crazy rain! He also became Finnish Champion.

Then it was Musse – he had no big luck this time. He came 2 i Ch class and ended up as BM4 (his worst result during this whole year so far lol).

Then the next dogs was Mimmi and her cousin Lara in open class. They did really good! Came 1 and 2 with CK.
Miranda – 4 in ch class with CK. So I had to ask for help showing her in BF – and she really hates that, she can just be shown by me. Poor girl, she was so depressed 😉

But I made the right decision to take Mimmi my self as she ended up as best female! Nr 1 with CAC and new Champion! Last turn in the ring was so exciting, the champion class winner was not SE CH so she could also take the CAC, a pretty MultiCh girl from Denmark. So, very exciting!

We showed the group and it got excellent critique!

Thank you for coming Helén and Conny Perked, nice to see you and thanks for all photos!
Thank you Madeleine Eriksmoen for helping me with Miranda in BF and with the breeders group! Also thanks for Susanne hosting me in her tent.

A lovely day  ♥

Amsterdam

Amsterdam

Amsterdam – such a pretty town.

Thursday night at 10 pm I can tell you non of us thought the trip would be possible. Mathildas little boy run away! Our neighbor phone and had seen him running on a big road by their house. We looked for him for hours, the dark came and we shout and searched. So horrible. I thought we had to cancel the trip and continue our search for days… But then Mathilda phoned and she had found him on a field! What a happiness!! So at 1 o’clock I was in bed. At 6 we have to leave.

So we left really early Friday morning, car packed with dogs and people! It took 16 hours to drive there! Omg… When we arrived in the evening it was crazy rain. The hotell was okay, the stairs up 3 floor were amazing, so steep it was almost like climbing an a ladder. No elevator. (Can’t be easy to be handicapped in this city). We had the windows towards the street with trams. So very noisy and not possible to sleep with open window and very hot in the room.

Saturday

We had a day off and just walked around, photographed, ate, found a gorgeous street with flowers and bulbs in all forms. Had to buy some tulips! Loved it!
Happend to walk in to Red district and such a tragedy. We all felt very bad with all the girls in windows. Horrible this can continue and be okay! Kind of made the city less nice.

We took a turist boat on all the canals. Took 1 h and it was wonderful. Away from all people in the street and very calming watching all beautiful houses and the amazing windows. Just do it if you are going there!

We went by Anne Frans house, didn’t go inside as the line was terrible.

And oh, I bought a coat to! Really needed it, really. 😉

Then back to hotell and bathing dogs and prepared for tomorrow show.

Sunday showtime.

After the show we went to a restaurant and took an early night in bed. So tired all of us. And leaving really early for the long trip home (took 15 h…).

Thank you girls for a lovely trip! So much fun!

Amsterdam

Lovely days at WDS in Amsterdam among a lot of friends. My dogs did their best but no big win for them this time. Musse EXC and no place in a class of 18 males. Miranda 2 in veteran class. Elliot got VG. Our breeders group was 2 out of 3. So happy Mathilda and Eternell was there with me ♥

I do have some critic to the organizer. Putting the SC and LC in different halls – yes, different halls!! – that is totally unacceptable! The rings was placed in a cluster of 4 and to put all 4 Chihuahuas beside each other would be so easy and of course the only way as it’s the same breed. We really tried to have it changed instantly but no… In SC they were not even beside each other.
Also the horror to have to leave the other dogs and all the private stuff when going to an other hall. Who watch it then?! Someone can just steal the dogs. Amazing!

We pay really much (both money and time) to show at the most important show in the world. We compete on a very high level and many of us couldn’t even show our dogs because of this!
Let me say this, we are very used to have 2 dogs in different rings at the same time – that is our reality in this breed and not what this is about. This is about bad organisation and to realize when the ring plan was released, that the Chihuahuas were placed in different halls. So very bad and ignorant!

An other thing is that we need to see and watch the other dogs and talk with people working with our breed. It’s very important for a breed and for the breeders to have this opportunity. No were else it’s possible to see so many high quality dogs at the same time and meet all breeders from around the world. Such a great chance for networking. 

Also the organization of the parking was terrible. I had bought parking before and was just supposed to drive in to the garage – that took med 1 1/2 hour!

I could say more things but I leave it there  😉

Thank you Mascha Hogeboom, Eternell Andrén & Mathilda Borslöv for photos.

Four-leaf clover

Four-leaf clover

Fin start på dagen och veckan. Triss i fyrklöver måste väl ändå vara maximal lycka!

 

This must be the best way to start a new day and week! To find THREE four-leaf clover! Ad coffee in the garden with my best friend in my lap – can’t be better then that!
Now she (Miranda) had her bath before the adventure we are heading this weekend – World Dog Show – Amsterdam. We are leaving at Friday so we have one day of vacay in the city before the show on Sunday. Travel with me will my daughter Eternell, Mathilda and the dogs; Musse, Miranda, Elliot and maybe Brenda.
Will be so much fun!!
