Elbereth Finnish Lapphunds

Sunday, 11 October 2009

What a great week!

First the news from USA that Matkamies is prcd-1 DNA clear normal, and then that Elbereth Apina at Pavoskas is in whelp to Elbereth Kippis to Pavoskas, five bonnie tri pups expected. Then to finish off the week we headed on a long journey to South Wales in October - not my favourite journey on a dark wet Friday night - but made all the better for a super welcome at Carol & Alan's and a great evenings company. I took three dogs, baby Matkamies, Penikka and Kyky, and what super results. Matka won PD and res BD, Penikka and Kyky both won their classes (open and post Grad bitch) and then Kyky pulled out all the stops to get BB and then Best of Breed. She is third in this litter this year to get a BOB, and 4th to get a best of sex award, and they are only 3 years old. Her win also made me very chuffed as it pushed Toive and Hapmi further into lead for top brood and top stud for the breed, with three shows remaining. Matka then qualified for the res Best of Sex stakes, and amongst older dogs from other breeds pulled off a very creditable 3rd. Drive home was much easier (VBG).
