Wicca ran her first competition in class 3 in Lohja. No clear runs yet, but was so cool to be competing in class 3 again!
Vimma (Red'n Ready FBI Most Wanted) was responsible for the clear runs this weekend, since she got her second zero-point win in class 2! Congratulations - soon she'll join Wicca in class 3.
Viivi had her ultrasound and unfortunately there were no puppies to be seen. This is now the second time Viivi did not get pregnant, I am not sure if we will try to breed her a third time or not. Now we turn our focus on Wicca's upcoming litter for the summer.
On Saturday I competed with Wicca in class 2 at an agility trial in Sipoo, and we got a zero-point win from two runs, 2 qualifying scores and moved to the highest class! Great to be finally competing in class 3 again!
On Sunday Maaru compated for the first time in agility in Ojanko with Melissa. First two runs were good training, because from the third one they did a zero-point run and ended up in third place!
Viivi has been bred successfully in Kannus just before Christmas with Pizu, and we are hoping for a litter for end of February. Ultra sound will be on Friday 18.1 to see if there will be puppies!
Vimma (Red'n Ready FBI Most Wanted) and her owner Lotta competed first time in obedience class 1. They did an amazing course with almost full points; 196/200 points! With this they won the class and got judge's "honor prize".
Year 2018 is coming to an end, and we would like to thank all our puppy owners and everybody else who has helped to make this such an great year! Now we turn our gazes to next year, to our future puppy plans and other adventures to come! I hope you all a great 2019!
