This weekend we went to Geneva for one day and our dogs did really well. Like always my sweet Kleopatra gave everything. She loves the ring and she loves to show herself off. And we love her so much! She is a very special Colliegirl to us. The judge thought so too :-). He said she is just so beautiful, no more than this.
She won the CC, CACIB and BEST OF BREED
Her brother Mc Leod's Kindred Spirit was out in the rings for the first time and his performance was not the best but still good enough to receive what he deserves. He got CC and CACIB. I'm really looking forward to go to more shows with this beautiful boy. I believe he couls do really well after some more training.
Last but not least Mc Leod's Freddy Mercury "Freddy" took the CC and the res. CACIB.
I felt very happy to spend a day together with my parents and all those wonderful dogs during this very busy and stressfull period of my life.

*DREAM WISH BELIEVE*
What a nice show which brought up beautiful memories!
8 years ago we went to our first show outside of Switzerland and I think it was also our second FCI show ever. The judge there in Wels at the first day was Heidi Poschacher. I showed Mercury and he behaved very badly was barking all the time because he wanted to play and I was embarassed and didn't know how to make him stop LOLOLOL he was clearly not behaving well enough to be a winner of anything at that time, but he received the CC not the CACIB though ... tihs is also the first time I met Denis Sabolic and Jadranka Mijatovic. So Denis suggested me to ask Miss Poschacher why she didn't give Mercury the CACIB HE obviusly tough he should have gotten it LOL :-). Miss Poschacher told me that he was not groomed well enough and didn't behave ... from that day on I decided to learn how to groom a dog properly. Denis showed us at the same day how to do it and this was the start of a burning flame ... from this day on I always wanted to become better and better in grooming and presenting my dogs. Motivated by the comment of Miss Poschacher and of course Denis always was an inspiration to me. I am very thankful to everyone who has helped to light the fire in me. I still love grooming and showing and I still want to become better and better. Unfortunately at the moment I don't have enough time but the time will come again and the fire still burns. It's the best to have a passion for something and people and of yourse such beautiful and loving dogs around you who help you to keep the fire burning.
Thank you everyone

We are proud of our beautiful "little" babyboy Freddy who one more time managed to be amongst the "big stars".
First best puppy of the breed which was not really hard ... but then he was pick out from all the best puppies to the final 6 best puppies!!
He thought it was so funny in the ring of honour that he tried to speed and play with me all the time.
Oh well, it's ok. I like him to like the show ring. He can still behave when he is an adult.
Wir sind sehr stolz auf unser "kleinen" Buben Freddy, welcher es wieder einmal geschafft hat, unter die grossen Stars zu kommen.
Zuerst wurde er bestes Baby und im Ehrenring kam er unter die letzten 6 besten von allen Rassen!!
Er fand es extrem lustig im Ehrenring und versuchte, wild loszugaloppieren und mit mir zu spielen.
Na, es ist ok, wenn er gerne im Ring ist. Er kann sich später immer noch benehmen, wenn er dann erwachsen ist.
