Our little blue princess Grace yesterday took part at Special Club show in Hurbanovo and obtained Exc.1, CAC, under Heike Bilsheim from Germany and was choosed in short list for best movement in breed. Thanks to our friends for a perfect day. Grace also spent there perfect day - especially after the show, because she could play with her doggie´s friends. By this she finished her successful show season 2013 in intermediate class – by winning class at all 6 shows (4 club shows, 2 international shows) which she attended ! We are proud of her ♥
Our summer was full of beautiful trips and experiences. But the most important moment was definitely our holiday in Norway, August. Norway is one of the most beautiful countries in Europe. We discovered two new countries - Denmark and Norway. Overall, our collie Grace visited 12 countries in Europe, so far :) See photo report from our holiday in Norway in the gallery.
While we are enjoying with Grace the vacation on the mountains, in the August issue of the breeders magazine PES A MAČKA you can find another my article about MOUNTAIN HIKING WITH DOG ! Here you can look at the 5-pages preview. The article you can read here.

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.
