The end of the year is always full with bigger shows, the ones you wait for and try to get the best out of you and your dogs. The Baltic Winner Show in Riga was one of them in our schedule. The change of game plan had to be made when Niina had knee surgery. So glad that Suvi was willing to join this show trip. Interesting set up, six dogs in two colours, one first timer and also Niina's Piper to show for the first time. Alltogether 25 Salt & Peppers and 20 Black & Silvers were judged by Mr Stelios Makaritis from Greece.
Imbrez Just Don't Get It
Suvi started with her Forrest, Imbrez Just Don't Get It, who had completed his Estonian and Latvian Junior Championships already last weekend. This time judge Stelios Makaritis from Greece didn't approve Forrest enough to award him cq, only excellent critique. This young man has a break now and will be back in big boys' classes.
Destineez Crash Run Into Myla
The next in the ring was Crash, who was shown last time in August in Tallinn. He showed nicely but wasn't judge's favorite boy of the day, placement was class 4 with excellent.
Myla's Flirty From Addison Street
Our sweet little new princess Addy, Myla's Flirty From Addison Street, started her show career in this show. Who would have believed it was her debute, so well she showed! Junior Class 1, Junior Certificate, Baltic Junior Winner title and Best Bitch 3 placement! We are so happy and whave high hopes for this little sweetie. Lauri, thank you for letting us have Addy, means a lot to us!
Imbrez All Included
Another salt and pepper girl with us was Iitu, Imbrez All Included. This time she was little bit too dark for our judge, nicely handled by Suvi with excellent critique.
Myla's Hunger Games
Mikko showed Saga again. Tough competition in Champion Class, but Saga was placed second and also at the end he was best male 2 with Latvian Certificate and Re-CACIB.
Myla's Cookies N Cream
The last but not the least in the ring was Piper. She was prepared only for this one show and boy aren't we glad she was! Piper won Intermediate class, and all Open and Champion bitches, becoming Best Bitch, receiving her first CACIB and Baltic Winner Title! What a little show girl, she is so much fun to show and move with.
Thank you Suvi for company!
