4.-5.8. Liepaja 2 x NAT

Group 2nd and 5th were great finish for Latvian shows this summer.

One more trip for shows to go and this time we get almost all the dogs from home. Unfortunately Jack was the only one to stay at home. We were lucky to have Imbrez Black Or White on his place, This was also the first show circuit to Echo, Myla’s Ultimate Repeat.

Early take of on friday morning by car towards Helsinki. Boat over to Tallinn and first stop at Pärnu. Then towards Riga and horrible road works and several traffic jams later towards beautiful beach of Liepaja. Altogether seven hours drive later we ended up to Verbernieki Camping, where we have a wonderful summer house waiting.  Great we have an excellent air conditioning in our car…

In Liepaja we truly enjoyed the old Latvian Atmosphere and all the great places to see, You just might imagine someone with her camera…. Lucky me, 

Daugava stadion

The stadion might be one of the best showgrounds in baltics. Beautiful stadion area with short, short green grass. Even the chairs looked nice 🙂

Not to talk about our chairs….


16 Miniature Schnauzers were judged by Mrs Sabina Ivanova from Latvia.

Imbrez Green Light District

Was best male and BOB as two weeks earlier in Ogre, Latvia too. This time handled by Emppu

Unfortunately we did not get any picture of girls on saturday. Flirt was Best Of Opposite and Echo got only Very Good because of her coat which was definitely not ready after her puppies. 10 weeks was not enough this time.

Imbrez Black Or White

Ansa was back in the rings after two weeks holiday. She had lost some weight which made just good to her. On saturday Best Bitch 2nd placement was a good start.

After the rings we had plenty of time to spend in the park next to the stadium and visit also a dog friendly restaurant at the bowling center near stadium.

The Group finals

So the few hours rest made good to us and Zen was certainly ready for the best placement of his life.

Group 2nd was an awesome end of the day!

And after shows at the beach.



Imbrez Green Light District and Myla’s Flirty From Addison Street

Changed their placements this time. Flirt was Best Of Breed and Zen Best Of Opposite. Both handled by Emppu.

Myla’s Ultimate Replay

Dispite the fact that she really has a short coat, Echo managed to run to the Best Bitch 2nd and because of Flirt was already Latvian Champion, Echo got her first very needed Latvian CAC. Now we will wait few months to get the last signs of past maturity away. But she really is fun to handle and she really enjoyed the ring.

Imbrez Black Or White

Ansa was definitely on her own level, which you might see from the pictures. She really enjoyed the show and posing to the judge who really appreciate her movements and harsh coat. So the placement was a bit better than on Friday ending up to Best Of Breed, 

And for the great end of the great show weekend Ansa took also Group 5th

And of course, after show again at the beach

Verbelnieki Camping

we just love this place! A lot to do and see for families. Many activities, great traditional Latvian food and summer houses, which were just renewed. It was easy to enjoy being there and we love to give our best recommendations for this place.
