WHAT A WEEKEND!!! We decided in the last minute to go to the double Sighthound Show in Vejen, Denmark. And I surely do not regret it!

Saturday, 58 Whippets entered under judge Kresten Scheel, Denmark. Grace won the champion class, best bitch with the Danish CAC which makes her a Danish champion, Club CAC (number 2 out of 4), she was BEST OF BREED and in the final she went all the way to BEST IN SHOW! Amazing!!! A little to hot weather but Grace is a real show machine so it didn't really affect her much.

Sunday, 51 Whippets entered under judge Birte Scheel, Denmark. Again, Grace won the champion class with Club CAC (number 3 out of 4), best bitch and BEST OF BREED. In the final she was runner up BEST IN SHOW.

This is a weekend I'll never forget <3

Some other news - Merlin's daughter Maya (Sinsline Reach out And Touch) is top bitch no 2 in Denmark 2016 (Kennel Club System). 
Merlins son Spider (Rhetsgis Hello Blue Moon) also got a new obedience title - LP1.

Merlin is very proud!

Last weekend in October we went to Poznan for a 2xCACIB show. I have been there before and I love the show ground, the hotel and of course the food ;)

On Saturday, Saga was 3rd in champion class, Grace was 2nd in champion class and Merlin was 1st in champion class and got his last CAC for the Polish champion title!

On Sunday, Saga won the champion class with CAC and R-CACIB. Merlin got a day off, and Grace won the champion class - got a Polish CAC - got the CACIB - and the title Polish Winner 2016.

Successful weekend!

That wasn't enough, in the finals (judged by Joy McFarlane, Fleetwind Salukis, South Africa) she was placed as BIS-3. It was 15 sighthounds in the BIS final! I am very proud of her <3

A long trip to Crufts is now over. Sweden-Denmark-Germany-Holland-Belgium-France-UK and then back home again.
Saga did a wonderful job. We have only begun practising free stacking so I was not sure If she would agree to it or not, but she did. She was much more happy than usual, she really doesn't like when I hold her. Well the tail was up a little too far but I prefer a happy dog any day!
Saga was placed 3rd in open class bitches of 18 entries which I am really proud of.

Merlins daughter Sally was also entered in junior class, she was just outside placement (I think there was 26 entries in junior bitches).

It was a long trip, but I would for sure do it again. Everything is easy with nice company ;)

No updates at all for a while, since I pulished by breeding plans. Next show (next weekend actually) will be Crufts. All three dogs are qualifyed but I am only bringing Saga. And I will get the pleasure to show Sally as well since she qualified and Annica decided to go.

Except from that, not much news really. We are planning our summer trip, of course. I have also been quite busy making show leads which I actually enjoy. Now I have a small stock of finished leashes, except from the ones that are ordered. Maybe I should bring them to Crufts.... we'll see.

You can read more about the show leads here >>

And here are some finished, for sale >>

Saga ended up as 4th best bitch in Germany 2015
Grace ended up as 2nd best debutant bitch in Sweden 2015

Saga had a very successful weekend in Kassel! Day one she won her fifth VDH and became VDH champion, she also won the CAC and was BOS. Day two was even better, she won BOB, VDH, CAC and CACIB! Grace was also entered, exc-3 in champion class both days.
Now we have to wait until October next year before we go back to Germany, trying to get the last CAC for the DE CH title.

Saga loves training. She is adorable =)

First weekend in October we went to Rostock, Germany trying to get the German CAC and VDH CAC with Saga. And she did it! CAC VDH and res-CACIB. She now needs only one more VDH to get the VDH champion title. We also brought Fatimah (Ch Abu Al Khayar Fatimah) trying to get her las CACIB for the international champion title, wich we did =) Diva the Deerhound also got what she needed (BOB CAC and VDH) so it was for sure a successful trip!

Second weekend in October we went to Aars Sighthound Club show in Denmark. Saga won BEST OF BREED, and got her last CLUB CAC for the Danish Club champion title =)
Grace also got a CLUB CAC (her first). Now we have a weekend at home before next show, which will be the Whippet Club show in Vingåker (81 Whippets entered).

We went to the international show in Orre, Norway, trying to get the Norwegian CAC. It was really a long way and driving in Norway is really slow. The show location was nice, and we were lucky to get our rings indoors (most of them were outdoors). It was OK weather but it is not summer anymore.
And we did it! Saga was BOB with CACIB and the Norwegian CAC so now she is also Norwegian champion =)
Since it was such a long way to drive home, we didn't stay to the finals.
Thank you for a lovely weekend Gunilla and Micke, and congratulations to Liams Norwegian champion title (GRAND SLAM FOR SWEDEN, WIHOOOO!!!!)

End of August was spent in Denmark at Broholm Castle where the FCI Euro Sighthound Show was held. Fantastic place for a show! I have only entered Saga one day, but also four of Merlin's kids was entered. Very nice to see them again!
After Denmark we went to Gotland to meet up with Ian (and also for the shows of course). We spent the week sightseeing and we had a really nice time. Saga was 4th best bitch one day and Grace was 4th best bitch one day with res CAC.

On Saturday Saga won her qualifying CAC for the Danish champion title under judge Kitty Sjong, Denmark. On Sunday Saga won her qualifying CACIB for the international champion title under judge Gert Christensen, Denmark. And also qualified for Crufts 2016. What a day =)
Grace was also entered and on Sunday she won the junior class - qualified for Crufts 2016 - and ended up as 3rd best bitch under jusge Nebojsa Savicic, Slovenia.
I also got to watch Maya (Sinsline Rich Girl) in the ring and that was a lovely sight. Such a wonderful little girl. She was BOB puppy on Saturday and BOS puppy on Sunday.

Grand slam for Saga!!!

Today we are saying goodbye to the old man in the house. After a bad long lasting stomach flu he finally recovered, but started to drink a lot of water and pee a lot, so I decided to let him go. Yesterday afternoon it was also some blood in his urine and that was the final call. Good bye my dear Anthe, I will miss you forever...

Now we are looking forward to the Swedish Winner show in two weeks. Merlin and Grace are entered.

Crufts was really a pleasant surprise! I had already before I went planned to watch the Whippets. Since they were divided in to two rings (males and bitches) I had only the time to watch the males. I must say that I really enjoyed the Whippets in the UK. Overall much better proportions and angulations, most of them not at all too long in body and overangulated. Smaller in size. Here they tend to get just longer and longer with neverending rears, which makes me sad.
And what about the flat toplines?
Why do ”we” want this development? Why it is a good thing? What is the goal with this? The standard says ”All forms of exaggeration should be avoided”.
And do we need ”More than one-half inch above or below stated height limits is a disqualifying fault” as in the American standard? Well this would disqualify my own Whippets, too….
A larger, longer Whippet has a very different movement compared to a more square moderate one.
I really want to put up photos for comparison, but I think I’ll save my battles and live another day ;)

I have an album with (almost) all Whippet males from Crufts here >>

Another thing I just don’t seem to get is the matings with young males. During 2014, almost 25% of all Swedish litters is done with a male under two years of age. Why? (And YES I DO keep statistics). When do you consider a dog fully matured?

Grace is now 11 months old  - can't believe that almost a year has passes since they were born....

I was very pleased to meet Merlins kids in Stockholm, February 21. They are now 4,5 months old.
