Elbereth Finnish Lapphunds
Monday, 8 June 2009
At Southern Cos there was an entry of 47 lapphunds for Finnish judge Pekka Teina!, his BOB winning two classes was Elbereth Kimmi - beautifully handled by Sam Moore for Vanessa and Mark. Sadly Sam had to leave the show before the Group judging so I had the lovely task of taking Kimmi in the Group ring under Hans Lehtinen, sadly we were not placed but Kimmi was a star, he is so lovely to show. In the breed the Elbereth "A" team of Kimmi, Penikka, Apina and Norppa won the Breeder group - and we went into the group final under Rodney Oldham, big thanks to Vanessa, Jo and Steve for staying and handling, we were second again behind the Tonkory border collies, so get closer to our target of qualifying the team for Crufts! We actually ran two teams, so thanks as well to Jalo, Sumi, Riku and Ilo for joining in the spirit of things, a "C" team was suggested but we had run out of handlers!
