maas3 Weekend news turned up that cool as two youngsters from our latest litter, 17 month old, got their first CACIB’s this past weekend – SMOKEY ( JCH Al Khabara Let Me Be Your Sensation ) at Adazi I nternational Show in Latvia, under pouring heavy rain and
ROCKY ( Al Khabara Let The Sensation Rock) from International show in Ransäter, Sweden 
as the res-CACIB’s turn into CACIBs for both of them.

Both boys opened their International Championship plus Rocky opened his Swedish Championship with his SWE CAC.

What a pity we do not have any picture from Latvia because the rain and flashing was that bad and my hands were busy with holding up the tent and grooming dogs for Alex to take into ring one by one.

But I have only these  few moving pictures and  little video clip of  Maasu, who did not dare of rain, but as heavier it rained ( and you can hear how heavily it poured down when watching the video below this post) than more fed up she also got and she refused to go inside of  judges tent. She is stubborn – haha – but she likes to move  and show off.

img_9104-fb Took our one year old pups and their Grandmom Grace ( 11 yo) out to mirrored training room yesterday to have some fun.  Grace was so happy and running around happily,  what a pity we can’t take her to the shows into veteran classes because she has hair clipped short under belly and from sides due  two sided mastecomy surgeries she had lately which she recovered so well and is now full of energy and joyful retirement days.  I believe that her condition would let her to offer competition to much younger ones in shows. Grace ( CIB CH Kingsleah Amazing Grace is mother  of  our  two large litters  and still going strong, very happy of my darling Gracie.

Did’nt have the plan to take photos, but couldn’t resist to take some snapshots.  We had Phoebe, Smokey and Roxanna with us.  Interesting is that Roxanna has the very same personality as is her Grandmom Gracie only in different colours.  Can’t stop wondering this enough, once a clown, always clown and not a dull day with Roxanna. Phoebe is more ladylike, so she would never act like monster, both are sweet as can be but same time different.  

What a wonderful place it is PetCity Arena in Tallinn  and the the flooring is best ever, safe and not slippery. Here is more photos  of our joyful pack:

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

Another comparison picture –  Like a Mom like a Son
Lilli (CIB Al Khabara Graceful Me) is pictured by Soile Huomo in Finland year ago in August and Smokey (Al Khabara Let Me Be Your Sensation) is pictured week ago in August , 5 month old, by Kerttu Koppel. Huge thank you both!
We think these two photos are just amazing side by side, same show tent as background, both pictured just a moment before they enter to ring.
So many emotions in these two photos!

 

 

Here comes Smokey  4 month old, moving how he likes the most, in the full happy roll, please FYI that he is just changing teeth and therefore the legs and tail  still is going here and there a bit, but notice the long loose leash and collar ;)
Full longer version in actual speed is in Youtube
