Ivrea National All Breeds Show
We had a nice day... at our last show of the year.
"Tuuli" Zoomin' Fairy del Gran Pamir made her show debut - an exciting one! She loved to show herself off and got Best Junior of Breed.
judge's comment: "If she'd been in the Youth class, she could have won BOB" ;-)
In the finals our Breeder's Group went BIS-3!
And "Swanie", handled by Emanuela, took a Group 3 over a very nice line-up of dogs! Thanks to Group judge Mrs Kavcic.
Below are some shots from the day...
"Venus" is qualified for Crufts!
She's also the FIRST ITALIAN AFGHAN HOUND BITCH TO EVER QUALIFY!!
We set one more record!

Torino International All Breeds Show
First All-breeds Show for Venus! And only her second one... 6 months & 1 day old!

And this was only her second outing, we look forward to more!

1 May - Workers' Day
National All Breeds Show in Alessandria
We entered "Fabio" to the show because he had spent too much time resting at home so we thought that at least him, today, had to work! Well, he wasn't the only one though...! He took Res CAC and was then 2nd Best Male. We're proud of this boy who looked stunning all day!
"Swanie" was shown for the first time in Open Class and, at the age of 15 months, she got ResCAC and was BB-2. Huge Congrats to her thrilled owners!! Last weekend she experienced coursing as well (but was too young to compete) and boy, she has energy! We couldn't doubt about that... Watch out for this amazing, powerful, wild girl both on the field and in the ring!
