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.
Grace was awarded in the prestigious competition TOP DOG of our Slovak Collie and Sheltie club - as a TOP YOUTH COLLIE ROUGH BITCH 2012 ! She was ranked as 6.TOP COLLIE ROUGH BITCH 2012 and sme became also a 3.TOP CLUB HOPE 2012 (from all Collies rough, Collies smooth and Shelties). We are proud of our little Grace, for these wonderful achievements that she have won at such a young age. We have added some new photos (portraits in the age of 15.5 months) to her gallery.
During the weekend we made a winter hike on the highest peak in the Low Tatras - Ďumbier (2046 m). It's already the second Grace´s two-thousand high hill :) Of course, Grace did not notice any vertical rise, and she was running up and down like a snowmobile :))) It was a beautiful frosty weather, with misty atmosphere ... gorgeous photos from Ďumbier by P. Suvák you can see in Grace´s photogallery from Hiking in Tatras.
