Last weekend was National dog show in Jaroslaw where our Elfi was shown for the first time. Elfisia went really great and she got exccellent and Junior Winner title. A huge thanks to Renata Pietruszewska (Adea kennel) for taking care of our little "blacky" and for handling her :)
While Elfi was running on the show ring me and my friend we were visiting big halls of the biggest english show - Crufts. Together with Dorota (Duovarius kennel) we flew there invited by our friends Jan and Gordon Rual (Gilcoru kennel). A year ago I took to them some hundsome black briard who grew up in our house and which I tried to bring up for a real gentelmen (perhaps even I did ;) ). Forte comes from Dorota's kennel, he went to welsh kennel Gilcoru in March last year and a few months later he become a Show Champion. On this occasion Jan and Gordon arranged a party during Crufts and they have also shown Forte on this show. I must admit that seeing him on the show ring has brought up on my mind memories about our trips and it gave me a great pleasure - everyone who has ever seen this dog moving they know what I am talking about :) Unfortunately I didn't have much time to see all great amounts of english springers and setters. I was handling my friend's gordon setter and it took me to much time but it gave me real pleasure beacuse together with "Dreamer" we were second in "special working" class. I hope to show there one of my own dogs in the future :) I would like to thank Jan and Gordon for taking care of us for these five days and congratulate them for becoming grandparents!!!!
