Saturday 26.5. was INT show and Sunday 27.5. was All breeds show. Judges were Leni Finne (Sat.) and Elena Agafonova (Sun.). Ruri was competing in Veteran Class and Silja in Intermediate Class. On Saturday Ruri got EXC, won his class, got CQ (only two males out of 7 got it) and was BM-2 and finally BOS-VET. On Sunday Ruri lost to the other vet but still got EXC. Silja got VG in both days. Which was good since she has shed her coat and she had interesting smells to sniff in the
My two breeding dogs took part in UC Davis diversity test. I heard about the test in 2nd of January and sent my dogs' samples there within a month. Now the Stage 1 is over and we have results!!! There were participants from all over the world, sadly only my dogs were from Finland. Here are my dogs' result certificates.
Outlier Indexes (OI) for both dogs are 0.38.
Today we were in Group show in Polvijärvi. Both Ruri and Silja took part. Silja was naked, she has lost all undercoat and most of her top coat.
Judge was Tanya Ahlman-Stockmari. Ruri did nicely and was BOS and BOB-VET. Silja got Intermediate Class GOOD, mostly due to her lack och coat. Also the judge though she is a bit lightly built. Ruri got great critique, but he IS great looking dog. He does not look like a nine year old!
