The Woofstock weekend in Northern California is a 4 day cluster of shows. Many breeds have their Specialties this weekend and even some National Specialties. Saturday is  back to the 60’s day, everyone breaks out their tie dye and bell bottoms. There is a costume contest too. People and dogs dress up too. The music from the 60’s is playing.

The Monterey International Pop Music Festival was widely promoted and heavily attended at 60’ies, featured historic performances, and was the subject of a popular theatrical documentary film, it became an inspiration and a template for future music festivals, including the Woodstock Festival two years later.  So this is from where the name of these cluster shows comes from and Woofstock is traditional now too.

Jipppeee and we have new AM Champion as Sensei finished his title!

Sensei, Al Khabara Lezz Go Sensational – Winners dog  and 2 major points.

Estonian Winner is biggest dogshow here In Estonia and we traditionally take our dogs there almost yearly. Show is held at Kalevi stadium where is large grassy rings, always room for tents and quick parking.  To be honest, this year I was schocked of small ring for Afghan Hounds but as it was last breed in ring  then ring stewards were so kind and removed belt between two rings so Afghan Hounds could move breed typically more than steps way and back.  Huge thanks from our team, that meant  also dogs can enjoy to be in ring. Unfortunately this year show might stay as last one there as  restoration of stadium is planned since 2017.

We got such a surprise visitors Ene and Kalle, owners of 12 years old Saluki Dhaka bred by us,  how nice it was meet you both and thank you for making our day even more special !

Thank you Salla Suokas for your help with Smokey for the picture, grandson of Moritz
and Pille Saar for great photo of Smokey in Junior BIS ring

smokey-10-m-kaunas  Our babies now 10 month old and first time out in junior classes at 30.01.2016 International Show, Kaunas Winter -2016, Lithuania
Smokey (Al Khabara Let Me Be Your Sensation ) took  LT Junior CAC  Have no better/sharper photos than that, but so many asked to see how the babies growing, so here he is pictured :)

Roxanna, (Al Khabara Lovin’ Tiger Lily) : got Excellent 2 in Junior class.
Roxanna looks yet like puppy and acting like a puppy :)   But how we would dare to take all this fun away from her ? :)
From photos we can see that she already knows her value and shows off like a queen, can’t wait the summer shows with large grassy rings to take her in. This one in Kaunas for sure was the smallest size of ring I ever seen. 3 steps each side. But some pictures….not very sharp tho.
Smokey enjoyed himself anyway, like always :)

Thank you to judge Mrs Monika Mikulienė/Lithuania
