Last weekend was very busy and a little stressfull for us ;) On Sunday 17-04-2011 together with Gracy I took part in 7th Obedience Competition in Rzeszów in "0" class. It was very first time for my little star and I guess she felt a little stress of mine. She didn't know what to expect from me in such a situation and so I felt about her ;) Happily we have both finally cleared our minds and we've done quite good by reaching 76/100 points what qualified us for "very good" prize. I guess we will work much harder now to prepare us for the next competition :) Some pictures from our practice and competition in obedience gallery. Thank you Klaudia Pudlarz for the pics from our competition.
It was the day that I will never forget. I guess that everytime I will think about it - it will make me feel great emotions. Last Thursday, 10-03-2011 on the world's largest show - Crufts in Birmingham, UK my two-years-old "Gracy" Lordsett GRACE KELLY got 3rd prize out of 12 bitches in limit class. She also got Crufts 2012 qualification. This year it was 144 english springers enterred and the judge was Ann Corbet from UK (Trimere kennel).
My "little star" made very proud again and this time I guess it was her best achievement in the show ring! It was 3rd time for me that I could see all these beautiful dogs on Crufts but the first time when I was showing my own dog. As far as I know Gracy is the first english springer spaniel born in polish kennel that was shown on Crufts with such a great result. That makes me proud and happy even more. I want to thank and congratulate to her breeders - Kasia & Marcin Książek from Lordsett kennel. It would not be possible without you guys! Gracy is gourgous girl and not only because of the way she looks like - most important for me is her great character, she is very smart and intelligent springer girl :))) more pictures in Crufts' gallery
I also want to thank to Ewa, Leszek and Jarek for our trip - it was great to spend these days with all of you guys! Thank you for your company and help and maybe next year we will do it again? ;)

NEWS - SHOWS 21-02-2011
It was very happy begining of the show seazon 2011 last weekend! Last Saturday I spent with Gracy on International Show East Cup Winner in Kosice, Slovakia. Gracy was showing her charms as good as she could and it was definitely "her day". Despite of some small "health problems" she was runing on the show ring very self confidently and she gained everything she could ;) Her results are even more important for me because she was judged by Swedish judge who was very critical for all spaniels and was using the whole grading scale :) Only 3 english springers got "excellent" and they were all born in Polish kennels. On Sunday it was International Show in Rzeszów, Poland where Gracy got the last CAC needed to became Polish Champion! :)
I am so proud of her and one more time I want to thank to her breeder - Kasia Książek for this little devil ;)
