spotlight dog #2

These dogs dosent come in any order, Im just telling you my favorite labs (and please tell me if you dont want youre dog here).

Edda, Su(u)ch Winnie's Mary Go Round is the best looking girl ever. Yeah...better than Clovie (dont tell her that). In my eyes she is perfect. Has always been too, right from the start ;) cutest puppy ever.
And she knows she is beautiful!

I took all these pics of her, at Winnies kennel. Have I told you guys that I have a photo memory? I remember almost everything in pics. So this comes pretty handy with dogs, cos I have many files in my head with dogs I seen in my life. So I also remember when I took the pic.
For more info on Edda the beautiful one, go to my links and Winnies kennel, there you can se her offspring too!

first show, Högbo

Im sooo happy with Clovers day. She behaved great! Or the best, as she is ;)
Laying down relaxing right by the ring and when it was time she was a great shower.

But the judge gav her a 2:on prize. She thought she was to low in the front, her legs wasn't in balance with the ribcage.
I already know that I will breed her to someone with a little higher body/more leg so thats that.
Just that it was only Clover and one more in open to get at 2:ond, thats not that great. But we will get right back on it =)

Lots of people didnt really understand that 2:ond prize. So Im just happy everybody else seems to like her!
The judge thanked me for showing her, that very nice.

Kritiken vart:

Något lågställd men välkroppad tik. Bra ben o tassar. Mycket välskuret huvud. Norm. skulderläge. Bra päls o svans. Kunde ha något bättre balans mellan benlängd o bröstkorg. Rör sig bra fram och bak. Något kort baksteg.
Ing-Marie Hagelin


Enligsh:
A bit low but nice body. Good bone and feet. Very nice head. Normal sholders. Good coat and tail. Should need better balance between leg lenght and ribcage. Moves well back and forth. Little bit short backstep.


Pic from Wallcroft Nancy ;)
I've always learned 50/50 between ribcage and legs.


At the end I showed Pias cutest little junior Winnie's Under Line " Fanny" in breeders grup. Shes a darling!!

spotlight dogs #1

I will try something new. And give u guys some dogs that I like. There are more and more people visiting here everyday, so I need to get you something to see. Not just Clover, even though she´s the best...

So I start out with Buster, that you saw me showing on a pic in the last post.
He is soon a champion in the US. Hes really good looking and has the sweetest temprament and is one of Pats yellow boys (always at least 2 around her ;) more about his half brother Cosmo another day.

Windrose Leagacy of Blockbuster "Buster" is a son of Casper (WR CH Winnie´s Block Buster MH WCX) and granson of Swedish CH Novacroft Mixedspice. And his mom (Windrose Edna Anne) is a granddother of sweet Olga (Winnie's Ball Room) how lived with me some years back. Anyway, I love to se how much these dogs behave or look like there pedegree dogs in the past. And I guess that what so intresting with dog breeding!


show tomorrow

Im a bit nervous, but hey! whats a compitition without that? If I didn't care, than I dont have anything to do there. Do I?
But now its Clover my heart. I do know I have the best dog anyway, and I know were gonna have fun tomorrow!

Wish us luck =)

Has been sitting outside a few hours a day with my schoolbook and Clover, she loves it. Here with a chewing bone.

Trackingclass

Me and my sister is going to a class with the dogs in the middle of april. They are going to learn tracking. Most labs LOVE this! And hopefully we can end up with a championchip title on Clover and Smilla someday. That would be SVCH before the name.

Its just fun to do something with the dogs and my sister. When I had Lotta we went on a reteriveclass, it was fun.
Offcourse I have all the equipment in pink =) do you think the dearleg comes in pink too?
(And thank you again Pat!!)




As usual, lovely weather, but Smilla and Clover dosent mind...
