LILLI 
CH Al Khabara Graceful Me 
by SBIS CIB Agha Djari’s Urban Cowboy x SBOS CIB Kingsleah Amazing Grace from our G-litter.

When she was baby, she was first one from litter who jumped high onto my bed first thing at mornings to look at me with THESE eyes to say: Do you know I am yours !!!

Then my heart was stolen and I said to her: “Lilli, you are so graceful!” :)

Click and see Lilli the punk rock girl !!!

Great weekend in Lithuania, there was two international shows at same weekend at 2-3.03.2013, first day it was Lithuanian Winner -2013 show and at Sunday it was Vilnius Cup-2013.

Bengu  (JCH Al Khabara Guess I’m Amazing) – both again in open class

and little  Entel (Al Khabara Easy Breezy Me) in Puppy class.

First of ours one to step into spotlight was Entel in to Puppy class.Like day earlier, Entel got a very nice experience from judge Mr Željko Žilnik from Croatia.  Entel loved to show and move and she achieved Best Female Puppy in breed aswell Best of Breed Puppy in breed award.

 NEW Title for Lilli ! LITHUANIAN WINNER -2013!
What a great weekend we had in Lithuania!
This is going to be long story, be prepared to stay with us for reading and lot photos;)

Two international shows, Lithuanian Winner-2013 and Vilnius Cup -2013 was held at 3-4.03.2013 in Vilnius.  Our team was represented by young  sisters Lilli (JCH Al Khabara Graceful Me) and Bengu  (JCH Al Khabara Guess I’m Amazing) and little  Entel (Al Khabara Easy Breezy Me) in Puppy class.

At first day there was Lithuanian Winner-13 show where BOB and BOS winners get country winner titles – the most important show held once in year in each country.

Lilli and Bengu were both entered into open class because they just lately got 2 years old. For Entel it was very first travelling so far as 10 hours in bus.

She did do great and enjoyed whole trip.
Entel is from our E-litter whose puppy class age have been  from January to March so they unfortunately have not yet much experience like our previous litter who had whole summer full of outdoor shows and travels.

So we had no idea how Entel performing when I entered to ring with her. We were not only ones with Entel, we had competition as well!  Maybe I was more concerned than Entel itself – she was stoic calm and enjoyed to meet judge, I must say meet judges, because there was also a exercise judge in ring so she got double examination. And if one might perhaps think if I was really concerned if I win or not then you are wrong- I was concerned and hopnig that Entel get nice experience at judge examination in first order and she did – both judges were so gentle handed experts, great pleasure and great experience for Entel!

First Entel did not understand anything about moving around she just tried to follow me, such a baby yet, but then she got it and we went all the way smoothly and nicely.

Entel and Lilli had great time in Hortes shopping center today. There was interesting programs for dog owners, also agility and dog dance presentations.  

Our main goal was to take Entel there for socialization and have a great time.  Lilli wanted to come with us, naturally, too as she always loves to go everywhere and meet people and get new fans.

Lilli have been there also several times before, as you can see from her rolling tongue she knows this is the place where from we often buy the pig ears. And amazing how she remembered the  seller, very kind lady who helped us to choose and buy the travelling crate last time when we were on bought one for Lilli when she needed it for her long showtrip to America in November.

And there was lot

What a  weekend  Lilli  (Al Khabara Graceful Me) had!!!
She was entered to two all breed dog shows and she enjoyed  every minute of it: showing “socks off” , making firendship with borzois, meeting  children by introducing her sweet personality. This girl seem to love show ring and show site from bottom of her heart!

She got Junior CC and was BOB Junior, then she was Best Female in Breed and finally –  only 13 month old and yet in puppy coat she did it down to Best of Breed over adult and specials!  We are very happy for her and most important that she enjoyed every second of  showing off!

2012_01_07 Lilli 1 year old 2012_01_07_1

Finally new photos of  Lillie was taken. She probably is less presented on photos from out G-litter because  her littresisters were shown to titles in last few month and so were most spotlighted and also because such darkness in November and December.

We are very pleasured how she grown and developed and we think she is another  beautiful mover  out of Moritz and Grace litter.
We finally  got  some snow and enough lights to take camera with Lilli at daily walk and when coming back we also did short video of her. Look how she enjoying herself at this snowy “catwalk” :)

Lilli will be seen in showrings at  2012 !!!
