CACIB Modena & Bologna (I) - 05./06.01.2017

Had a fun weekend in Modena due to the presence of our friend Vivian with her girl I Want You Back, known as B.B. The two sisters B.B. and Rosie were in the same class and it was a tough decision for judges on both days.

J Litter, new photos

Our two handsome boys decided to sit pretty for the camera for once, so we took the chance and now we have some new lovely portraits of our handsome gents. Also, we received new photos of Jenga, now called Alba, in her home. We're so happy for her and grateful to her owners for taking such excellent care of her. She is having a lot of fun with her Cavalier King Charles and Shih Tzu sisters in Milan.

CACIB Verona (I) - 16.12.2017

It was almost a last minute decision to enter our girls to IDS Verona and boy am I glad I did.
We had a great time with many people there and it was a reminder of how dog shows aren't only about the competition but about the meeting of like minded people who share the same passion for the breed and the sport. My sincere thanks go to the exhibitors and friends who shared this lovely day with me.

CACIB Sempeter & Vrtojba (SLO) - 09.-10.12.2017

Last weekend was an emotional show for me. Although I'm not ecstatic of the location and the ambience, Vrtojba dog shows will always have a special place in our hearts. It was the first dog show we ever took part in and boy what a show it was, winning Runner Up Best Puppy in Show with our foundation Bagrijana. It was 10 years ago, and some times it just feels like yesterday. Anyway we entered our Borzoi girls to the double IDS and the papillon puppies to the specialty in the evening of Saturday. Had a great time with many friends and I'm very happy with our girls' success.

Zagreb Winter Classics (HR) - 24.-26.11.17

As always it's that time of the year to groom dogs, pack up our show gear and move to Zagreb. The interesting panel of judges and the winter specialty show are what have drawn us to this show initially, and we've gone back almost every year since the first time in 2008. This year was no different, but we entered more dogs that the previous years.
