Show memories

 Some of our greatest wins

During the years we have been very lucky and have had many nice wins.
I have picked out some that made a different for me and really meant something extra!
Starts from bottom of the side with the first win 2007.
(Unfortunately my old web site is gone and with that, the complete results from former shows).


Veteran World Winner Chi’s Lovely Miranda!!
World Dog Show Leipzig, Germany 2017

I was so, so nervous! It was just 5 veteran females and it’s so much worse when it’s so few I think. Not sure why but that makes me always very nervous. But such a happiness when she won!! She now has 2 world winner titles! Also competed for BOB for the 4 time in her life  at WDS 🙂

Musse came 2 in a huge Champion class (18 males). But – 2 never counts, right… 😉 Also competed for R-CACIB.


Best Of Group 9 and BIS5 Chi’s Lovely Cassio
Ljungskile, Sweden August 2017 – All breed Show

This was a really huge moment in my showing life! I knew only one LC chihuahua winning BOG before in Sweden (a son to our Tegs Wild Card) so Musse was the second long coat chihuahua winning Best of Group 9!! He has many BOG places before so I was overwhelmed when he actually won! The Norwegian judge Rune Lysgaard loved him.

He was then Best In Show 5! (other judge)


Slovenian Winner 2015 BOB Chi’s Lovely Miranda – BOS Chi’s Lovely Cassio


Norwegian Winner 2015 – BOB Chi’s Lovely Miranda – New Norwegian and NORDIC Chi’s Lovely Julius Caesar


World Winner Chi’s Lovely Miranda!!
Biggest moment ever!
World Dog Show Helsinki, Finland 2014

Here I kind of had no hope. Miranda won CH class one more time – For the third time she won the class at WDS and competed for the WW title. I thought – “Here we go again…” Saw the beautiful other class winners and though history would just repeat. But this time she really took it all! A feeling I can’t describe, so happy and grateful for this little girl. Chi’s Lovely 2 breeder out of 8 groups.

We went to Crufts! Crazy, fun trip, driving with Eva Wolbeck from Germany to Birmingham. Tyke did really good with place 3 in Yearling class. Think the first Swedish chihuahua ever placed at Crufts. So it was nice! Miranda didn’t get any place, showed in open.

Judges Hans Lethinen and BIS Junior Hans Van Den Berg


First time placed in BOG –
Eskilstuna, Sweden August 2010

At this time it was very rare that a Chihuahua was placed in BOG in Sweden. Miranda was just a junior and I was overwhelmed. No pic unfortunately. Judge Soile Bister said she would have been BOG 1 if she had been a little bit more alert. She was a bit tired just 10 months old, it was her 4 official show – she got her first CAC and BOB, breed judge Elisabeth Spillman. After this she has got many more BOG places during the years.



Proud moment- BOB Breeder in the final ring
World Dog Show, Herning Denmark June 2010

Herning in Denmark was my second WDS. We (Elisabeth Åkerlund, Lisbeth Göl and I) showed 5 girls. Three juniors and in class: 3 Chi’s Lovely Celia, 4 Chi’s Lovely Miranda, 5 Chi’s Lovely Ariel. In open: 3 Chi’s Lovely Drottning Hermione and in a class of 17 Champions Chi’s Lovely Alvina Ärtblomma was 2 (and should have competed for R-CACIB but I didn’t know that! Was told after!! Gaaaah). I was so proud of all girl got places and the breeders group was BOB.
Now I really felt it was possible for a nobody like me to get a place and that my breeding was okay at this level!



My first home breed Champion – Chi’s Lovely Alvina Ärtblomma
Herning, Denmark 2009

From my first litter I got my first champion, Laura became Swedish and Danish CH in Herning (after that she took many more titles).


World Dog Show in Stockholm, Sweden July 2008

Such a fun weekend! And looking back, I think this was a very important and crucial show for me. To see all this beautiful dogs and handlers. I was totally rapt by the moment, loved all about it! And when Joy – Chi’s Lovely Drottning Hermione was 4 in junior class I felt  – “It is possible! I can do it!”
So lucky me WDS was in Sweden or I had not been there I think. Now I wanted to go to the next one!


First Win! Guichon’s American Rose BOS
Malmö, Sweden Mars 2007

Must mention the first win. Kind of nothing breaks that feeling and after that it’s hard to take a step back – then it’s suddenly possible! Fun!
Judge was breed judge Patrick McDevitt (Keenaughts) and 60 LC chihuahuas.
