October: Giusa got into a serious training group that heads to Finnish Championships in obedience
October: Finally we got the results about Ansa; she had cancer in her lungs 🙁
3.10 X:lle hieno BH-titteli, X passed his BH-test!
20.9.2012 Lot’s of new results for the gang!!! Congratulations to all of you, I am so proud and happy 🙂 Sad news about Ansa and Olavi too 🙁
Viksu kisasi palveluskoirakokeiden ylimmässä luokassa jäljellä ensimmäistä kertaa ja nappasi itselleen uuden koulutustunnuksen JK3, on se vaan hieno likka!!!
Purri (Heartstone’s U Bet I am) ja Norris (Heartstone’s Choco) suorittivat molemmat BH-kokeensa liehuvin lipuin ja vallan komeasti!!! Samaiset tyypit kisasivat myös paimennuksessa ASCA kisoissa elokuussa; ja Purri veti itselleen STDsd tittelit ja high combined voiton + todella kivat sijoitukset kaikissa elukoissa. Norris tempaisi toisen ankka legin ja on näin ollen STDd tittelin ylpeä omistaja!
Spessu, Silverledge Special Effort aloitti paimennusuransa näppärästi suorittamalla legit sekä lampailta, että ankoilta, hienon näköistä menoa pojalta!!!
Giusa, (Dazzling Spirit in the Nick of Time) tokoili yli 190 pisteen suorituksella itselleen luokkavoiton, hienot ruusukkeet ja pokaalin! Hieno tokoaloitus!
Hikka käväisi kisaamassa Carina Ranteella luokka voiton ja 190 pisteen verran!!! Ei hattumpaa ei hattumpaa! Onnea!!!
Huonoja ja hyvin surullisia uutisia on tullut kaksin kappalein; Olavi, Shepmate’s Super Energy, satutti tapaturmaisesti jalkansa ja jouduttiin sen vuoksi lopettamaan aivan liian nuorena. Toinen samalla viikolla tullut kamala uutinen oli, että Ansa, Shepmate’s Aptness, jouduttiin lopettamaan toistaiseksi tuntemattomasta syystä; koira ajautui todella huonoon kuntoon ja emme tiedä muuta kuin, että ilmeisesti Ansan munuaisissa oli jotakin pahasti vialla. Odotamme ruumiinavauksen tuloksia. Ansan ja Olavin perheille isot halaukset, lämpimät ajatukset ja yhteiset jaetut kirkkaat pienet pisarat poskilla 🙁
Elokuun alussa tapahtunutta:
Viksusta tuli Tottelevaisuus VALIO!!! Hikka kisasi EK3:sen ykköstuloksella 🙂 Purri paimenteli STDs tittelin, Norris sai itselleen ankka legin ja huonoina uutisina Ansalle tuli kohtutulehdus ja Ansa siirtyi juoksuongelmattomiin kisaajiin.
Viksu is now a Finnish Obedience Champion!!! Hikka got her EK3 title with high score, Purri got her STDs tittle and Norris his first duck leg.
