2 National shows and 1 Speciality show in Marupe
On the 23-24 July we participated at 2 National shows organized by RETO kennelclub and 1 Speciality show in Marupe. This shows are one of the best organized shows in Latvia, so we register our dogs there, even if they don't need anything. :)
At the 23rd we had National show and Speciality show in one day. At the National show dalmatians started at 9:30, so it was not so hot and dogs
felt very comfortable. The judge was Mr.Johan Hiddes from Netherlands. At this show Karmen was best puppy in the breed with excellent description:
"7 months, excellent puppy in type and in construction, exc. head, feet, good neck, topline and body, very good bone, exc. spoting all over, moves with temperament, must improve in topline"
And then was Gosha's turn. When he came to the ring and started running, judge asked a ring steward to write in his critique, that Gosha "moves like an arabian horse"! I also feel, that he is becoming more muscled and his gate is becoming so powerful! As a result Gosha was placed 1st in best male competition and won BOB!
Happy birthday, our beloved Gosha!
At the 27th of June our best boy Aragorn The King Vitalight (Gosha) celebrated his 4th birthday! How fastly runs time...
How Karmen learnt to swim
At the 25th of June after 2xCACIB shows in Riga, where Karmen both days became best puppy in breed and BIG-2 puppy, we decided that it's time for her to learn how to
Elizabeth, my son Anton, his girlfriend Marika and Karmen went to the lake called Juglas to practice some swimming skills. Weather was perfect, there were not so many people near the lake. We bought a special toy, which doesn't sink in the water, so Karmen could ran after it in the lake. Ha-ha, how good plans we had. Karmen had different plans :)
It looked like this:
Karmen decided, that water is so wet, that she will not go there. Elizabeth tried to do something to make Karmen go into water for at least some seconds, but she didn't want to do that, so after some minutes Elizabeth, Anton and Marika decided, that this day is not the best one for teaching Karmen how to swim and went home.
P.S. after 2 weeks we went to the lake once again, but this time with Gosha. And Karmen decided to go in water after him. When she understood that this is not dangerous, she started swimming, like if she was swimming all her life. Hurrey, she can swim and what is more important - she enjoys it!
National show in Talsi, 07.05.2011
Judge - Valentina Ivanischeva (Russia)
On the 7th of May we came to a very nice city in the west of Latvia, called Talsi, to show our dogs at Talsi Kennelclub show. I must say that this was the first show organised by this club and it was fantastic!
We showed Karmen at baby class and she received Very promissing, PP, Best Baby and amazing description "Excellently growned, prepared and showed in the ring. Perfect size, format, type, very good head, ex. tailset, very good temperament".
And a little bit later at the Best in Show Baby competition among 11 babies from all breeds Karmen was Best in Show Baby 4! We received very nice cup, rosette and some nice presents! I am very satisfied with our result, because dalmatian ring started at 10 o'clock, but Best in Show ring at 16:30, so she was really tired, but she behaved and runned perfectly in the ring! I am very proud of her!
Gosha also showed himself perfectly as well and received Exc., CQ, Best male 1, BOB and later BIG IV! Very nice weekend for us! :)
FCI VI. group Speciality show 10.04.2011
Judge - Elena Tripoli (Russia)
It was the first show for our baby Lovinda's Karmen, so we were very excited about it. 7 dalmatians were entered, among them our Karmen and Aragorn The King Vitalight (Gosha) in champion class.
Karmen was only baby in the breed, so when we came with her in the ring judge started kissing Karmen and screaming: "Oh, I am so in love with her! She is so
sweet!" Also she gave Karmen excellent description: "Excellent type, exc. head, female of excellent lines and proportions. good topline, exc. movements." And she gave Exc., PP, Best Baby in Breed
and Best in show baby 1!!!
Karmen behaved so perfect, I am very proud of her. When someone saw her, he immidetely started smiling, because she is so active, lovely and sweet! We can't wait for our second show!!!
But the most biggest surprise waited for us later. Gosha became 1 male and Best of Breed and some hours later at Best in Show ring among 6 breeds received 1 place! Aragorn the King Vitalight - BOB and BIS 1 at Speciality show! He did it again!
Later our club awarded those dogs, which became Latvian TOP dogs in 2010. Gosha became 4th TOP dog of the year from all breeds! Amazing success for dalmatian! We are very happy and proud. It means, that we are doing everything right.
