Crufts News

Lovely weekend at Crufts - we were sensible and stayed close by to the NEC so could compete in the Agria Breeders' team finals and then in the breed classes.  On the Saturday, the breeder final was as ever highly competitive with just under 50 top teams compering under watchful eye of Michael Coad,   The Elbereth Lapphund team were pulled out in the last 10 an amazing achievement - so proud of Matkamies, Kia Joins Bridus, Penikka and Mikko, and all other Elbereth dogs who have been in the teams over the year.

On the Sunday - the breed judging took place and Mr J Horswell was the judge, delighted that he awarded BOB & Dog CC to Jordie and the lovely Fidelis Duuri, to give him his UK title.  Best bitch winning her second CC was Judi Cross' E Marja, and E Matkamies won his second res CC at Crufts, from the Good Citizen Class, to show that show dogs can have brains and beauty (Marja won OB & GCB classes).   In the dog challenge two dogs were imports from Finland, I bred Matkamies and Tuulin Kauka and all other dogs in dog challenge were out of Elbereth bitches, something to be proud of.
