Here we go again. This time to Riga Latvia, for two International Shows. We had with us 4 dogs again, Piper, Kerttu, Crash and black Jack.
Our hotel was right in the city center, so the dogs got good socialization with plenty to see with big city life. Good one hour Friday night city walk for dogs was enough to put everyone to sleep.
On Saturday, black Jack was second in Champion Class and also second best male with RE-CACIB. Crash got exact same results, also RE-CACIB and second best male. Kerttu won the Champion Class and made it all the way to Best Bitch with CACIB, the last one needed to finish her International Championship! We are SO happy!
Finally, it was little Piper’s turn. She won the Junior Class of 3 bitches and also Champion Class bitch and became Best Bitch with her first Junior Certificate. Judge C.V. Sudarsan from India ended up placing Piper Best Of Breed in her first ever International show! When it clicks it just clicks. Piper was perfect, just perfect, and so much fun to show.
I am still amazed how well Piper showed. Still puppyish, but she knew what was expected and behaved like a show pro. Training really paid off.
On Sunday, another day, but similar results. Judge Juta Haranen from Estonia placed Jack also second, now after Saturday’s third male. As veteran dog won, Jack received another RE-CACIB with Best Male 3 result. The hunt for the last CACIB may continue. We decided to show Kerttu anyway, even she didn’t need anything anymore after Saturday’s win. Kerttu placed Champion Class second and Best Bitch 3. Piper repeated her results from Saturday. Another win from three bitces Junior class and Best Bitch Junior Certificate and Best of Breed. I’m so proud of my little girl!
It felt almost like spring when we started our drive back to Tallinn and towards home. By the time we got to Tallinn, the weather had completely changed and it was full winter again with snowballs on dogs’ legs.
Nice trip, super happy with Kerttu’s new International Show Championship title and Piper’s great start and two junior Certificates. It’s good to continue from here.
And thank you again Suvi for taking care of our dogs at home!
