Last weekend we travelled all the way to Zagreb (Croatia) with one goal in mind: coming home with those wanted Crufts Qualification Tickets for my fathers little dogs.
We were so lucky that our good friend Marko from Mangry's Aussies was so guest free to take care of us our whole stay. First of all many big thanks to him for all the time and friendship he is putting into us! Also a big thank you to Latica from Best Models kennel (Yorkshire Terriers and Pomeranians) for the lifts to the show! And last but not least to our new friends Nenad Bizic and Alexandra Cherednichenko for their company! We sure had some super fun and laughs! Hope to see you all very soon again at our place or in your home countries!
Our trip didn't start out all that well. Our connecting flight in Munich got cancelled... so we had to hurry to get a connection via Vienna to Zagreb. You can imagine it was real fitness work out in the aiport running with two dogs to the other side to be in time for boarding... and you can guess what happened: Luggage didn't go with us to Zagreb.
On friday evening we had very relax evening on the show. Today they organised the Specialty club shows. Only our pomeranian Pinecerest Aux Minis Peluches "Beast" was entered at the nordic club winner. As our dear friend is crazy about poms, and I didn't have my own clothes with me... he was very happy to handle him for me! And they did super! Beast went BOB Junior and even RBIS junior!
Coming home only at midnight Marko still had to do some grooming jobs to get his Aussies prepared for the Crufts Qualification show on Saturday! With only some hours sleep we left to the show again! Beast was Best Junior Male and got his first Crufts ticket on the age of 1 year old. Our Papillon Siljans Truly Yours got CACIB and BOB and also obtained his Crufts ticket! We were so happy about this! This is what we really wanted to go home with for my father! As little 'pojke' is just perfect for Crufts 2012. Later on in the mainring Pojke got selected with the best 6 dogs in a very strong Toy Group Line up. Marko also did very well with his girl Bamba getting CACIB and BOS. What a strong bitch Bamba is!!!
On sunday it went the same way. Beasty got Best Junior male and Pojke CACIB and BOB. This means Beast is Croatian Junior Champion and Zagreb Junior Winner And pojke has the titles Zagreb Winner and Croatian Champion. Once again the spotlight was on pojke in the mainring being in the shortlist again!
