|Raahe group show 27 Jan: Svea graded Very Good
in the intermediate class by Markku Kipinä.
Kaunas International, Lithuania 27/28 Jan: Saturday appeared to be a
day of Very Goods since also Vuokko and Kielo were graded Very Good. Sunday's show, however, went a lot better with
Kielo going BOS & BOB veteran (which makes her a
Lithuanian veteran champion) and Vuokko winning her
all-important fourth CACIB and thereby finishing her
C.I.B title! What is more, she also got her Lithuanian
title. The judges were Rony Doedijns (Saturday) and
Jean-Claude Klein (Sunday). Thank you Pinja
Lämsä for taking the girls with you! Photo
Kuopio Spitz Specialty 28 Jan: Nuuk won the veteran
class among stiff competition and took a creditable third
place in the dog challenge under Juha
Putkonen. He was also BOS veteran. Bitches were judged by Katja Korhonen, who gave Saimi a Very
Good. The Finnish Lapphund entry was once again huge,
this time 132 dogs entered!
