This weekend we spent at double CACIB dogshow Veľká Ida by which we completed a very successful summer show season. The first day was very sunny day, but despite the hot weather Grace presented herself very nice and obtained Excellent 1, CAC ! The second day Grace was in really superb mood, fully enjoyed her stay in the ring and obtained again Excellent 1, CAC ! Both days under the breed specialists. We are very proud to Grace, she is amazing girl ! Thank you dear collie friends for perfect company over the weekend! Now we are ready for summer, vacation... so a lot of hiking, trips, relax... and all the pleasantness associated with it :P
I have added a new gallery from one nice hiking at Muránska plateau.
At Sunday we took part on the Special Club show Lučenec. The show was placed in the beautiful city park. It was very sunny and hot day, but the trees in park offered us shelter in the shade. We spent great weekend with our friends! Collies also have a big fun together ;) The show was judged by Mrs. Gabriela Ridarčíková and Grace presented herself very nice. It was very hot day, but she done a good job in the ring. It was a third club show for her this year - and her third class win ! She was awarded as Excellent 1,CC and was choosed in short list for best head in breed. Of course, I´m very proud of her. In the final competition she was also awarded as 2.BIS BRACE with her fellow Bons Carpathian Paradise Dog. Thanks to our friends for wonderful day at the show! Some nice photos from the show:
short news from our common life - we are doing great, we do lot of sport and condition trainings. A week ago we took part on the cross country marathon near our town and ran 11 km with Grace. More about our activities you can also find on our Facebook page. Our Grace again in dog magazine! She have her photo in the article about breed (written by slovak Collie breeder Dr.Stanislava Zubrická) in the PES a MAČKA magazine. Also our sweet Yaschka (in memoriam) have a nice sheep herding photo there.
Our Grace took part on the slovak club show Terchová 2013. Grace again won the intermediate class with Excellent 1, CAC and became a new CLUB JUNIORCHAMPION !!! It is very valuable title for me. On the Ceremonial club dinner we took beautiful diploms, drawing portrait and cup for the wins in the TOP DOG 2012 competition (for the TOP youth bitch and 3.TOP hope of the club). We spent beautiful 3 days in Terchová, together with our friends. We made long walks, nice talks and also we have a big fun! It was for us very nice weekend! Thank you.
Our Grace took part on the prestige KCM 2013 Championship show of Netherland. On this show participated 125 collies. In the strong competition of intermediate class our Grace was awarded as Excellent 1 and got a nice judgement from well-known english judge Alan Clarke (Lynway collies). We spent wonderful 5 days in Holland, in beautiful nature and we have visited so many nice places. During our stay in Holland we were under the care of Mrs. Miep van Dulken, well-known holland breeder of Lovely of Unicorn and her husband Harry. They are also the owners of Grace´s beautiful and successful brother. Photogallery and report from this trip will be available in a few days :)
This weekend we organized a special hike - to the middle of Slovakia, where we made a perfect hike to the beautiful hill Kľak (1 351.6 m) in the Malá Fatra hills. More from our hike with collies you can see in the the album Hill Kľak in the gallery.
