Our sincere thanks to sighthound judge Anette Edlander, Sweden!

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

2016 One nice sunny day we packed our younger ones (15 month old) to van and took off to southern Estonia to visit Tentel ( Al Khabara Extravaganza) and her lovely family  Jane and Aivo and her friends whippets.

What a great time it was for everyone in Aivo’s and Jane’s beautiful garden!  Chill! We took lot photos, to be honest, I found it out later that I took sooooo many photos. Every time  resizing photos for upload, I remind that to myself but for so deaf ears! So  it turns out a photo blog post and a memory of nice beginning of summer!

Pictured on group photo from left is Smokey ( Al Khabara Let Me Be Your Sensation), Roxanna  (Al Khabara Lovin’ Tiger Lily)  Jane, Tentel and her friend and best buddy Lotta, Aivo,  and Alex with Phoebe ( Al Khabara Lily Of The Valley).

Here is full gallery of photos we did that day:

2016rakvere-rosetid Weekend show news from Rakvere All Breed Show at 8-9.05.2016 ! Yesterday Smokey (Al Khabara Let Me Be Your Sensation) took JCAC and BM3 and today his sister Roxanna (Al Khabara Lovin’ Tiger Lily) took also JCAC and BB 2 out of junior classes. And yes, Roxanna was selected among 10 in jun BIS ring from all breeds, but acted like a whirlwind, being too excited of herself LOL. Well done babies and thank you to judges.

Can’t wait the large grassy outdoor rings and actually this was last indoor show for them, tiny tiny rings.
Unfortunately no photos from shows as Alex was alone there.


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 (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
