|BIS Mikko and RBIS Matkamies by Llovall Design|
Elbereth Riku made a rare appearance to the ring - qualifying for Crufts 2012 by a second place in Post Graduate, and Elbereth Pilkku won the veteran dog class. Of course at the end of the show tension mounted as the judge selected his BIS, which was Mikko, and then for RBIS he selected Matkamies over the BCC winner - the lovely Taimi. Then when Pilkku won BVIS I was over the moon. My breeder Teams were first and third and E Penikka qualified by a third in Open, plus cannot forget little Tiia, who was only at her second show - and was superbly handled by Sam Moore to win the Special Yearling class!
