The Second CC

Last year when CCs were first offered for the breed, the bitch CCs were well spread, with no bitch winning more than one CC, and so I guess as 2012 started the pressure was on to see who would win a second CC.  

Elbereth Kia Joins Bridus
At the Finnish Lapphund Club of GB's second Championship show judged by top Finnish allrounder, Hans Lehtinen, the bitch entry was higher than the dogs (37 dogs making 54 entries and 49 bitches making 64 entries.) so competition was strong, therefore absolutely delighted that Sue and Emma Bird's Elbereth Kia Joins Bridus headed a strong open bitch class and went onto win her second CC with me handling.  Her first CC was won at Birmingham last May under Sue Dunger, when she did double with brother Matkamies.  

Kia is a very big winner overseas as well, having numerous CACIB and she took BOB at Luxembourg, she actually has more than the required 4 CACIB for her International title - but under FCI rules we have to wait until a year and a day has passed before trying to win the qualifying CACIB for this title.  Last year in addition to her CC she won BB at Working and Pastoral Breeds of Wales and BOB at South Wales.

Elbereth bred dogs had a lovely show with 4 of Mamo's young babies, E Tarmo, E Tulin Kaukaa for Limishka, E Mysrky and E Leena qualifying for Crufts at their first Championship show, we also took first and second place in the breeder's competition, having fielded two teams.
