TUURI All-breed Show 14.6.2015

Only one Memorylane entered at this show, as the WDS was overlapping....
This one almost didn´t get shown either, as upon trying to enter the ring,
the owner discovered that someone had mysteriously cancelled her entry Seriously What???
Only two entered Beardies in the whole show.... I´m stunned for words....
Extra BIG CONGRATS to Saana & "Sohvi", CIB & Multi CH Memorylane Steppin Out To Party, for sticking to your guns and taking BOS!

Thank You judge, Mrs. Marjatta Pylvänäinen-Suorsa

MILANO Club Speciality & WDS 13.-14.6.2015

In the middle of June there was the Milano WDS. I wasn´t supposed to go, but was talked into it by a friend..... who ended up staying at home!
Oh well, new plans were made and it was decided that girls Tuulia & Davina would drive my car with all our combined dogs and I would fly. Unfortunately I couldn´t get more time off from work. Or should I maybe say fortunately..... as yes, the Citroën Jumpy had its own mind again and broke down. Twice! Plus also had
a flat tire. Omg, that car..... Thanks to Hans, Marika & Gervais for assistance with fixing it!
Doggies were however comfy and blissfully unaware of such disasters.
Our entire gang did also have a very nice run at the shows and I do believe everyone got to bring home something
All our Beardies were awarded EXCellent both days. Ch male "Sampo", BIS, CIB & Multi CH Memorylane Samba Caramba, took 2nd in his class at the club speciality. Handsome "Soni", Memorylane Ur A Hunk Of A Flash, WON jun males at the same show and was also BOB-Jun!

The ever energetic Veterangirl "Liinu", CIB & Multi CH Memorylane Game Set Match, took both days third in her class. And the Star this time was Ch girl "Gloria", CIB & Multi CH Memorylane The Divine Miz M, who at only two years+ went 2nd in her class at the Wds and actually
BOB at the Club Speciality!!! Our breedersclass was also BOB at that same show

I was happy that we attended both days. It was especially interesting for us on saturday as the Club Speciality judge was a new aquaintance for us.
Thank You Mr. Giancarlo Sambucco from Italy for appreciating our gang!
Thanks also to Mr. Ronnie Irving who did the Wds judging.

Overall a lovely trip meeting friends, seeing nice dogs and enjoying good food
My sightseeing-day was spent organizing car-stuff, so only a few small "art-experiences"..... Lol! But what would a trip be withouth some surprises

I also want to especially Thank Marketta Fredriksson for organizing our super appartment and taking most of the videos & pics! Big Thanks to Hilde Fredriksson for awessomeeeee handling once again!
 
Last but not least, Super Thanks to Tuulia & Davina for putting this caravan on the road!

Congrats to All owners, Juha, Irene, Jaana, Christa, Teija & Timo, you can be so proud of your dogs!


Let´s have a beauty-nap until we meet again.... no crates for our sweeties....

Finnish National Beardie Speciality 7.6.2015

I have rarely been in a situation where it has been impossible for me to attend this show, but now it was so. I had to be at work as we have ongoing negotiations about possible down-sizing. There was some crazy rumour that I had instructed the M-team not to take part either, but let´s be totally clear that no such thing had taken place. We have actually previously entered our dogs on 7 different shows (out of 12 possible) to this particular judge and also done very nicely under her. I do feel the judging has been honest all through. Anyway, at the actual Speciality, one M-lane did attend on their own. They did absolutely Awessomely!
"Sulo", BISS, CIB & Multi CH Memorylane Storm In A T-Cup, took....
BEST IN SHOW VET aswell as RES. BEST IN SHOW overall!!! I am SUPER PROUD of this great couple
Thank You breederjudge Ms. Tarja Löfman (kennel Lawnlake)
In the tourist-class, "Ossi", Memorylane This Kiss Is Magic, made his debute and took second! Many Congrats Marjatta! Thank You breederjudge Ms. Lea Saarikivi

Many Congrats also to mommy Nana!

HELSINKI Int.Show 23.5.2015


This show is very close to us and held at a lovely venue with spacious rings. On the evening before the show, as me and my "hubby" were returning from watching the Cirque de Soleil, I got the idea that we should go put up our tent in advance and this prooved to be a great idea. Tent-space is many times scarse and now we got a space. There was quite a few Beardies entered and a new judge for us, who actually used to breed Beardies before. So, many reasons to make this show very interesting
Happy to report we had a wonderful day, please look at our best results below....

AGILITY-History in the making.... 11.4.2015


"Sulo", BISS, CIB & Multi CH Memorylane Storm In A T-Cup, is not only a showdog, but also an agilitydog. He has with his mommy Nana had great results in both sports and today it was time for Agility. Sulo is competing in the highest, Maxi 3-class. One of Nanas goals has been to get the ticket for the individual Finnish Championship competition and today it happened! This is really not an easy feat, especially with a Big Beardie-bear, amongst all them quick Border-flashes....
Congratulations Nana & Sulo, I am SO Happy for you and wish you great success at the Finnish Championship competition! 
And the history-part is that Sulo is the first Memorylane to qualify for the individual competition. He has participated along with some other M:s in the team-part before, but that was just a warm-up for the "real deal"
 


The Supercouple in action!

SYDNEY ROYAL Show 29.3.2015 Australia


We have sent a couple of dogs "down under" and today it was time for the brown clown to take to the stage yet again. "Tiplu", CH Memorylane Rubberband Man HT, has a lot of spirit, but I find That is one of the best parts of this awessome breed. Not only spirit, but also looks, has blessed Mr. T. I´m glad also many judges have found that and so Tiplu has been doing very nicely at shows. Today was again one of those days. Tiplu won the males and ended up BOS! Or Runner-Up BOB, like they say in Australia. We are Super Proud as this is THE show of the year down under....
Big CONGRATS to Karin & Tim, aswell as Tiplus handlers

RIGA 2 x Int.Shows 21.-22.3.2015 Latvia


As we were showing in Lahti, Saana travelled with a friend to Latvia for some big shows over there. The trip was surprisingly eventful, including getting seriously lost, broken car parts, torn skirt, etc.etc.
Fortunately, the results for the doggies made up for everything. Our girl "Madde", Alistair´s Tailormade, was part of this adventure-gang. She took all in her stride and so finished Both days with CAC, CACIB & BOB! On saturday she also got her Crufts-pass 2016! Big Congrats to All involved!

AGILITY-news from Estonia


Tiina and her boys have been training & competing actively and this has definitely bared fruit.... I just got the Happy news that "Leo", Memorylane Hip-Hop Don´t Stop, has been chosen as "Future Hope 2014" of their Agility-club (which is the biggest one in Estonia!).

LAHTI Group Speciality 11.1.2015


As we were freezing out butts off in Kajaani, 2 M-doggies were taking the more comfortable route. That ofcourse doesn´t mean that it would have been any less easier in the actual ring..... Still, they did it!

After spending the previous day at the show and then doing the nightshift, it was tempting to go to bed and skip this show. Especially as I was facing Another nightshift after this sundays show.... But heck no, what is a little 48h of staying up every now and then  Other happenings included Sampo getting a sudden attack of diarrhea just as he was in the ring, so that wasn´t very nice, poor guy.

                                        OSLO NordW Show 15.11.2014


I can´t remember when was the last time a dog of mine had the opportunity to travel to Norway, so quite special trip now. I wasn´t able to attend myself this time either, as one must work and earn money every now and then too
But with dear friends collaboration, everything was possible.
Thank You Hilde, Sari, Marketta, Timo & Teija!
The competition was stiff, but our results were near perfect....
"Molli", CIB & Multi Ch Sandauri Let´s Go Go Go, went Best bitch 2 with CAC ->

Big Congrats Simo & Susse
Thank you judge Hilkka Salohalla

                          BRNO European Winner Show 23.10.2014


This years EDS was in the Czech republic. It felt weird not to attend, as we have gone to all the big title-shows these past years. But I was busy at home, watching over our very young puppies and that is very important too
Still one M-lane offspring was taking part in the show and I was soooo Happy to receive news that Rekkus (CIB & Multi CH, last years EUVW Memorylane Hold On Tight) daughter, IT JCH Rimmel del Cuore Impavido, took the Junior title, EUJW-14 this year! She was also BOB-Jun! aswell as shortlisted to TOP 6 in the Group 1 juniors!

Well Done, we are so Proud

                                 PORVOO Show 13.9.2014


Yesterday it was showtime again. Beautiful Porvoo called and so we went.....
Despite being the 13th, it was a lovely sunny day with equally sunny results
All our guys were rated EXCellent with CQ. Below best placers of the day.

* "Sampo", CIB & Multi CH & NordW-13, JWW-13 M. Samba Caramba took Best male 2
* "Gloria", FI LV BY CH & Multi W M. The Divine Miz M went Best bitch 2
* "Molli", CIB & Multi CH, Multi W Sandauri Let´s Go Go Go took Best bitch 4

Jackpot went to our 10,5 year "young" Lucy, CIB & Multi CH Memorylane Angel On A Mission.... Despite her age, she carried herself like a Queen, like she always does, and so finished BOB-Vet aswell as BOB!!! I couldn´t be happier, So Well Deserved for this Grand Old Dam
Also the judge, the honourable Mr. Kari Järvinen, had huge praise for Lucy and said the Beardies of today should "take model of her"..... I do completely understand what he means. She is of a bit older type, but nevertheless sooo lovely, especially due to her extremely effortless very Correct flowing movement. No need to race around the ring, just glide.... Big Thanks & Congrats to her handler, Suvi & owner Niina!


~ Lucy with Suvi ~

Our breedersgroup also went BOB with a very flattering critique.....
Really means a Lot to me, coming from such a well-respected judge,
Thank You Mr. Järvinen!

                            TERVAKOSKI Int. Show 30.8.2014


This show can almost be called our "home-show", as it is very close to us. What Luxury to only drive 30min to the showgrounds. We had again this year a change of judge, but as I hadn´t shown for either one, I thought it will be interesting to go anyway. And that it was.... our judge was very symphatetic, in a lost-puppy sort of way, bless him. Not quite what I was hoping for, but still we did have some lovely results too
All our dogs were rewarded with EXCellent (but almost identical ) critiques. Below you find our top results for the day....

* "Lucy", CIB & Multi CH Memorylane Angel On A Mission, Best Bitch 3 & BOB-Vet!
* "Jesse", CIB & Multi CH Memorylane The Holy Man, Best Male 2 & res.CACIB
* "Gloria", FI LV BY CH & Multi W Memorylane The Divine Miz M, BB 1, BOS & CACIB!
*  Breedersclass BOB & Honorary Prize out of two groups

Many Congrats to each and everyone! Thank You Team, we sure had a laugh, or two, or three.... Hilde, Marika, Suvi, U did a Great job!
Thank You judge, Mr. Gabor Hargitai (Hungary)

                                              News from SWEDEN


During the summer Anders has attended various shows with his boys, "Alex", SE NO DK CH Memorylane Sunsational & "Rumba", Memorylane Ready To Rumba. They have had and EXCellent time and biggest success was gained at Ronneby Int. Show, in July.
Alex went Best Male 2 with res.Cacib, which will become CACIB as the winner already is Cib. And straight after followed Rumba, going Best Male 3 with CAC!
Really Well Done boys and I truly appreciate that Anders always gives his all for his beloved Memorylane-boys
Thank you judges! Especially Mr. Glen Vernon, who was doing Ronneby.
Thank you also to everyone who has been so kind to offer Anders a helping hand in and out of the ring when necessary.

                               HERDING test & trials 29.-31.8.2014


It was time again for an action-packed prolonged weekend for Johanna & "Pixie", Memorylane Thirty Sec To Mars.... several events in FCI traditional style herding.
On friday Pixie Passed the working test with nearly top points 97/100!!!
Thus, she was entitled to take part in the official trials on saturday & sunday. And what an awesome start she had to her official carreer.... Saturday 2:nd and Sunday 3:rd in PAIM-1 class! WOW, really Super job Johanna & Pixxie  
 

This pic is not taken at the trial, but at a training session as unfortunately Johanna didn´t make pics at the trial. Still, you can see Pixies dedication
already here. Might I also add that you should observe her very correct anatomy & harmonious step. All this, together with the apt for herding, makes a great working dog, who also will last in the long run. Just to steer anyone clear as to Why also "beauty" is needed, in additiong to brains

                                         KOUVOLA Show 23.8.2014


Today I drove straight after nightshift to the dogshow. My "hubby" Jouni, met me on the way, bringing the dogs. We were on as first breed in the ring, so there wasn´t that much time to get everything ready. As the ring started, all went fine. But by ch-bitches, things went a bit chaotic.... ALL the bitches were just being pigs with their visiting handlers, uhhh. I was sweating heaps, trying to make everything work.... Oh well, a Beardie is certainly not a robot, hehhe
All our dogs did still receive an EXCellent evaluation. Best results are below....

* "Randy", FI CH, HeJW-13, EEJW-13 Memorylane Move Heaven´N Earth, Best Male 2
* "Molli", CIB & Multi CH, Multi W Sandauri Let´s Go Go Go, BB 1, BOB & BIG 3!!!

                                            RAISIO Show 16.8.2014


This is a show not too far from us, only about 2h drive each way. The weather en route did give us gray hairs though; rain/shine/rain.... fortunately it was mostly shine at the showplace, so our doggies did stay dry.
There was quite a few M-lanes entered, but for one reason or another, many had to cancel. I was a bit disappointed with that, but what can you do, life is life....
The remaining dogs however did not fail and so every one was awarded EXCellent, CQ aswell as a placement in BM & BB

* "Sampo", CIB & Multi CH & Balt JCH, Multi W Memorylane Samba Caramba, Best Male 3

                                 HELSINKI  World Dog Show 10.8.2014


Finally the long-awaited WDS was here!
Our journey started with two days of bathing & preparing dogs, meeting faraway friends for dinner, getting clothes ready, packing the car and even sq
ueezing in a 7h extra roadtrip. Pheew.....
So, we were ready for the biggest event of the year and on sunday it was time for Beardies. 70 dogs were entered alltogether from various parts of the world. It was really nice seeing so many lovely dogs even if there was quite a bit of mad dashing to organize our whole team. I was also very happy to see so many friends even if some of you just briefly. As the show was in our homecountry, it was clear that we would enter many dogs. I want to say THANK YOU ALL Memorylanes for coming & Congrats to Each and Everyone for preparing & presenting their dogs so beautifully ♥♥♥
All but one got an EXCellent evaluation too! Overall our day was lovely and successfull, please meet our stars of the day below....

                                   KUOPIO 3 x Int.Shows 1.-3.8.2014


This show-cluster is a really big one and only organized with a few years apart. It is quite a heavy endeavour, especially if you have a lot of dogs, like we do. But organisation is good and judges interesting, so we usually attend. Only critique I would have to give, is that rings should be in the middle of the showgrounds, on grass and not on the dusty gravel, let alone some asphalt-rings, which we were stuck at for two of the days.... I can tell you that they are mighty hot when the sun shines all day Fortunately our dogs endured this with proper refreshments and we had a very nice successful time
Star of the w/e was Molli, best results below....

                                       OULU Int.Show 13.7.2014


This is one of the shows far up north. I made it here as we also had a little Memorylane get-together with the northern M-lanes. So a fun evening before the show with barbecue and some drinks too. Then "the gang" made a big surprice, giving me a wonderful bracelet! For once Nina was at a loss for words.... SO touched by this gesture! Thank You ♥♥♥
At the show next day we were busy as usual. Sun was shining and the nice times continued. To top it off, the judge really fell in love with our Molli. He is a movement specialist and he said he got goosebumps when she entered the ring. It is one thing to just race around the ring and another thing to present such correct gliding movement. I was thrilled, as those are my feelings exactly
Our breedersgroup also got wonderful compliments
Below best results of the day....

                                       FORSSA Show 28.-29.6.2014


This is one of my favourite showgrounds, especially on a sunny day. Short-cut grass, spacey rings and big trees to provide nice shade. On a rainy day the grounds unfortunately turn quite quickly into a mudslide. This year we got to experience both but it didn´t slow us down On saturday was Beardie breed-day and as faith was to decide, we also returned for showing on sunday..... More detailed results below.

* "Liinu", CIB & Multi CH, Multi W Memorylane Game Set Match, Best bitch 3
* "Randy", HeJW-13 & EeJW-13 M. Move Heaven´N Earth, Best Male 2, CAC -> FI CH!
* "Lucy", CIB & Multi CH Memorylane Angel On A Mission, Best Bitch 2 & BOB-Vet
* "Molli", CIB & Multi CH, Multi W Sandauri Let´s Go Go Go, BOS!
* "Sampo", CIB & Multi CH, Multi W Memorylane Samba Caramba, BEST IN SHOW 1!!!!!!
* Breedersgroup with Randy, Gloria, Liinu & Lucy, BEST IN SHOW 1!!!!!!


Sampo after winning the Group on saturday - Soooo Happy

What can I say, this weekend was a dream come true..... Randy starting out with gaining his title at his first possible show, just 4 days past his birthday. Then Sampo winning the group. Memorylane going BIS-breeder. And finally returning on sunday for overall BIS with Sampo, which he WON! 
I am definitely over the moon and back!!!! Not only for these wins from such highly respected judges, but also from the numerous lovely comments many of the other judges made. THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!

            PORI Int.Show 29.6  &  ROVANIEMI Int.Show 21.6.2014


I decided to post these two shows together as there was not many M-lanes on either one. Pori is located on the west-coast, quite far down south and Rovaniemi is in Santa Claus land, so beyond the north pole
I did not attend either one myself but want to Congratulate those who did
Responsible for best results in Pori was "Unski", FI CH Memorylane Superman Tonight, going Best Male 2 with res.CACIB. Same result was for "Nöpö", CIB & Multi CH Memorylane Got Some Mighty Magic, in Rovaniemi. Well done both!
Thank you judges, Mr. Seamus Oates in Pori and Mr. George Schogol in Rovaniemi

       HYVINKÄÄ Match Show  &  SALO Group Speciality 25.5.2014


Two events in Finland for today and I´m posting them together as there was only 1 M-dog for each show. In Hyvinkää, "Al", Memorylane Uups I Did It My Way, made his long-awaited debute.... it was an exciting day for him, seeing sooo many new dogs and breeds, he would have liked to kiss them all In the ring we did have to sweat a bit as Al´s mom hasn´t really trained him at all. Yes, his mom would be me.... Uups.... Still, we ended up BIS 4 Puppy all-breed from 23 pups, Wuuhuu!!!  
At Salo Mirka was taking more seasoned young lady "Vickan", Memorylane So What If I Wiggle, into the ring. They did really well, going BB 2 with res.CAC, Many Congrats!
Thank You to the judges!


Hmm, I think we can see Al is a son of Mrs.Go Go Go

After not too much sleep, I headed to Helsinki Int.Show today. Right up I got a "little" morning work-out as I was pulling 4 dogs and my stuff (in two runs) mostly alone on the muddy ground to our ring. After that I decided it was time for summer-attire, pheew

                            ZADAR 4 x Int.Shows 1.-4.5.2014 Croatia


As we were freezing in Finland, Marja & Aatu were on holiday in southern Europe. In the last second before they went, I got the brilliant idea that they should also visit Zadar shows as their route was anyway quite close. So, 1.-4.5 they attended 4 Int. Shows with their Beardies.

                           HARJAVALTA Group Speciality 3.5.2014


Nowadays we concentrate mainly on bigger shows, but this Speciality for Herdingdogs & Molosses, has been one we usually attend. The judges-list is interesting and the venue is lovely with big rings. It was our first outdoor-show for the year and a bit cold, but that was just a plus for keeping me awake, after I had been delivering puppies the previous night, so no sleep. We only had 2 youngsters in the ring, but they did Awesome....

                                       VAASA Int.Show 26.4.2014


Every year we go to this show, even if it´s far from us. There is interesting judges, the hall is great, rings large and atmosphere good. Not any difference this year either. Only exception was that I couldn´t make the long drive myself, so Jouni kindly drove us back and forth. Being in the ring as first breed, we had a long day, but fortunately it was a rewarding one

                                       IMATRA Int.Show 20.4.2014


Every easter there is a show traditionally out east, in Lappeenranta. But this year the show was held in nearby Imatra. What a refreshing change as the new location was absolutely Stunning. Kinda matched with our doggies
Too bad the judge didn´t quite agree on all points with that. Both boys, Elvis & Sampo, were supposedly limping. No Sir, they were not, That is just how nice movement looks Also Molli was getting critiqued for two happy jumps.... Apparantly she should just glide around like a queen.... Well she IS a Queen, but also Beardie. Personally I´m not too fond of robots Oh well, we all did our best and I´m completely Happy with that. In the end our efforts did bring us a nice little Easter-gift after all

Finally it was time for "Imze", Memorylane IOU A Peek Of Magic, to make his debute with his new owner, Deborah. They had a great time and Imze was showing lovely. He won Open class and in the end got r.Cac & r.Cacib, which will become CAC & CACIB as the winner already is Be Ch & Cib. So not bad result at all
Congratulations Deborah!
Thank You breederjudge Mrs. Kerstin Selle, kennel Philemon

                                  NOKIA Character Test 13.4.2014


Today the Bearded Collie Club of Finland was arranging a character test. It is originally structured for working breeds, typically for rottweilers, GSD:s or "tough" dogs in general. However, over the past years it has become more popular to test all kinds of breeds, but the test itself, is still the same for all (including gunshots). It is very difficult to get space to one of these tests (no matter which club is the organizer), only 10 spots per day available. We were now lucky to get 3 spots for the M-dogs. We did stay and watch the rest 7 also, so it was a long day alltogether, but very interesting.
I am happy to say all our dogs passed and with some nice scores aswell, Many Congrats to owners Marika & Christa!
Thank You judges Katri Leikola & Kai Tarkka for being objective and not prejudist towards our Hairy Marys  

* "Mandy", BISS, CIB & Multi CH Memorylane Praise My Name: Passed with +108p.
* "Jesse", CIB & Multi CH Memorylane The Holy Man: Passed with +110p.
* "Maya", CIB & Multi CH Memorylane Within Temptation: Passed with +159p.

                               *** 2013 TOP Beardies in Finland ***


It was that time of the year again..... The Clubs spring meeting and also official announciation of all the TOP-Beardie competitions for last year.
Again another Awsome year behind us, even more so than I ever dared to dream of....
Out of TOP 10 Showdogs, 7 went to the Memorylanes, YIPPEEE!!!!
In the total list of TOP 20 showdogs, 11 spots went to us.... WOW!
This also includes the WINNER - ALL SYSTEMS (Finnish Kennelclub points too).... "Liinu", CIB FI DK EE LV LT RU CH LTW-12 EUW-13 HEW-13 Memorylane Game Set Match. A lovely balanced girl full of that authentic Beardie Spirit head to toe. In addition to this win, Liinu took numerous Group-placements, Bis-placement, aswell as BOB at the European Winners Show in Geneva.

The rest of our TOP 20 placements were as follows....

* TOP 2 Male (#4 overall): "Rekku", CIB, Multi CH & Multi W M. Hold On Tight
* TOP 3 Male (#5 overall): "Sulo", BISS, CIB & Multi CH M. Storm In A T-Cup
* TOP 4 Male (joint #6 overall): "Diesel", CIB & Multi CH M. Show Me The Party
* TOP 4 Female (#8 overall): "Lexxy", CIB & Multi CH M. Knoxx Off Your Sox
* TOP 5 Male (#9 overall): "Sampo", NordW-13 & Multi JW M. Samba Caramba
* TOP 5 Female (#10 overall): "Maya", CIB & Multi CH M. Within Temptation
* TOP 6 Female (#11 overall): "Mandy", BISS, CIB & Multi CH M. Praise My Name
* TOP 6 Male (#12 overall): "Jesse", CIB & Multi CH M. The Holy Man
* TOP 8 Male (#15 overall): "Nöpö", FI & BY CH M. Gotsome Mighty Magic
* TOP 11 Female (#19 overall): "Wilma", CIB & Multi CH M. Strike A Pose

In the TOP Veteran competition we had also some very nice success. I´m extra happy to see so many M-lanes kept in shape through their golden years
Most of our veterans also gained a BIS 1 Veteran win during the year
Here is how we did....

TOP Beardie Veterans for 2013

* TOP 1 Overall & All Systems (also TOP 12 Vet All-breeds AND TOP Beardie Herder!):
  "Lexxy", BISSV, BISV, CIB, Multi CH & Multi W Memorylane Knoxx Off Your Sox
* TOP 1 Male (#2 overall):
"Rekku", BISV, CIB, Multi CH & Multi W M. Hold On Tight
* TOP 3 Male (#5 overall): "Leevi", BISV, CIB & Multi CH M.Big Ben Jammin
* TOP 4 Female (#7 overall): "Lucy", CIB & Multi CH M. Angel On A Mission


Lexxy on the move towards BISS Vet

Other club-competitions involved Agility and Obedience aswell. Our Beardies have mostly concentrated on shows, but this doesn´t mean that they wouldn´t be Fully Capable of doing other hobbies also. Unfortunately everyones time is limited these days, so gotta pick a main hobby. Still, we did get some nice placements in the hobby-competitions aswell

Agility Beardie of the Year
* TOP 1 Male (#6 overall): 
"Sulo", BISS, CIB & Multi CH M. Storm In A T-Cup
Obedience Beardie of the Year
* TOP 11 overall: "Tarmo", Memorylane No Doubt
Obedience Newcomer of the Year
* TOP 6 overall: "Hugo", Memorylane Super Charge

Last but not least.....
In the Breederscompetition we went #1 again, for the 11th! year running.... Again with a little twist though. In addition to the traditional showbreeders-comp., there was the BCCF:s other one, that counted for the most part everything but showpoints. I am still a bit on the fence with this competition as I feel it should be an "All-round Beardie" comp. for the individual dog. I do think it´s great that people participate in agility & obedience & dog-dancing, etc. but don´t really feel I, as a breeder, should be awarded for someone elses training efforts. So I decided not to enter this competition, even if we actually WOULD have finished with very nice points.... In the Finnish Kennelclubs Official Breeders-competition we were also yet again the #1 Beardie-Breeder, aswell as TOP 12 Breeder All-Breeds. This is a HUGE competition in Finland, so a real Honour to place this high.


One of our Numerous BIS-placing Breeders-groups

I wish to extend my Heartfelt CONGRATULATIONS and THANKS to ALL owners of the M-lanes doing so well in and out of the rings, may your chosen sport be whichever. I am very very grateful for all your efforts and that you love and adore your Beardies also as valued family-members 
THANK YOU for the continuous co-operation & good times we have enjoyed!!!

Also BIIIG THANKS to the various people being so KIND to offer a helping hand (or two or three) both ringside and with Handling, U!!!
I hope we will have Awssoom times & adventures again in 2014

Ok, this had to be the Mother of all adventure-trips......
Car breaking down not once, but Twice! Stranded in the middle of the night abroad, getting towed for 5h!, being stopped by the police..... and that was just the tip of the iceberg. Fortunately also this adventure-trip was successful, even though I ended up paying for it a biiiit more than planned

                                                  CRUFTS 6.3.2014


This show doesn´t need much introductions, only being the most esteemed dog-show in the world.... And not everyone is allowed to participate, especially the foreign dogs have quite a limited opportunity to get Crufts qualifications. We did have those for some of our doggies this year aswell, but chose to only bring one as the travels from Finland is no piece of cake with a dog/dogs.

This year I had the privilege of flying but still had an extremely busy schedule. A litter just being born and another show to attend to straight after.
Still, it was wonderful to be at Crufts and meeting new & old friends, seeing some smashing dogs and even showing one of our own.
Brown clown "Sampo", Multi JCh, Multi JW Memorylane Samba Caramba, took part in Yearling class and did Very Well, Placing second out of 16 entries! Alltogether over 300 Beardies at Crufts this year, what a Show  
Big Congrats & Thanks to Sampos owners Timo & Teija!!!

Thank You judge Lesley Tomlinson

My moms Birthday and I was the bad daughter, going to a dog-show....
Will have to party later... But maybe my mom brought us luck as we had a great day! Rekkus Italian daughter "Blondie", Regalo Italiano Del Cuore Impavido, made her debute for an All-breed puppyshow. Her mommy & other family was at herding school, so Blondie had spent the night at our house and was in the ring with me for the first time. Mommy Maisu has done a great job training Blondie and so her performance was just perfect. Result was accordingly, BOB-puppy with Honorary Prize!
Many Congrats to the whole family
Thank You judge Maija Sylgren

Today there was one of the biggest Finnish shows of the year. It is a nice show and not terribly far from us, so ofcourse we went.

With handling I got graciously help from the M-girls & dear Hilde, Thank You ALL  
We had an Awssom day and I was very happy. Especially so, as our dogs got really flattering critiques and todays judge was respected breederjudge,

                                         KAJAANI Int Show 12.1.2014

 
Every year I swear that I won´t go to this show and what happens.... I end up going anyway! It is usually the coldest International show of the year, held in a LOT of minus-degrees in a hall that has dirt-floor, yes, the cold ground, no actual built-in floor The travel is really long as it is up north and usually there is some nice big snow-storm on the way too.... So WHY do I keep traveling to Kajaani???
I happen to have some really wonderful M-doggies living up north and this show is close to them, so I want to show my support and travel to meet them. 
This year we had a lovely time, like always. Thank You Maisu & Aatu for your hospitality
At the show there was some mighty fun and games but we still had a decent day

                                     3 x HELSINKI Int 13.-15.12.2013


The traditional shows to end the year here in Finland are held in Messukeskus in Helsinki. When I was a little girl, my dad took me here every year and I really enjoyed it already then. So, it is a definite "must" to participate to these shows. Usually it is a 2-day event, but now it was 3 days. It was HUGE, with over 23000 dogs participating. I thought I would be totally exhausted by the end of the w/e, but was able to pace myself so it wasn´t too bad. Only friday I had some real trouble with my very persistant flu. Still, the spacious halls and nice time-tabling helped us exhibitors, so it wasn´t too stressful for such a big event. Ofcourse our veeeeery nice results didn´t hurt either...

Each day we had the luxury of taking home some titles and I do have to say I´m extremely Proud of our Lovely dogs and also our Wonderful Team!
Sincere CONGRATS & THANKS to ALL involved in and out of the ring, U Rock!
Also Awesome to meet old & new friends from around the world
Below best results day by day, please enjoy.....

Last but not least, Thank You to everyone who was so kind to take pictures of our hairies. It is not always easy to get great shots in the midst of all the hurry and commotion so it really is appreciated when someone goes that extra mile. These pics are courtesy of Johanna Korpijaakko (Rekku, Randy, Liinu, Sulo, Lexxy), Hilde Fredriksson (Sampo) & Mikko Marttinen (Breedersgroup), Thank You once more!

                                       Health Tests....


A few M-Beardies have been X-rayed and eye-checked with some nice results. Thanks for screening your honeys, this is not only valuable information for me as a breeder, but also for you as owners.

* "Siiri", Memorylane Summertime Salsa: Hips A/A & Elbows 0/0 = EXC
* "Ossi", Memorylane This Kiss Is Magic: Hips A/A, Elbows 0/0 & Eyes OK
* "Sampo", Memorylane Samba Caramba: Hips B/C, Elbows 0/0 & Eyes OK
* "Muusa", Memorylane Paint Me Chocolina: Hips C/C, Elbows 0/0 and on
   Eyes CD = Corneal Dystrofia (epitel) caused by excessive cholesteral on the
   surface of the eye. This can be a nutritional problem or hereditary. A first
   for us anyway. The good news is that the dog itself will not suffer from this.


Ossi enjoying a beautiful healthy day out!

                                           CELJE Int Show 1.12.2013


December month happenings were opened in Slovenia this year. Kristina & her gang travelled all the way there and had a very succesful weekend
"Teo", Multi Jun CH Memorylane Leap Of Faith, took a leap into intermediate, where he finished EXCellently first. Overall he went 2nd Best male with CAC & res.Cacib, which will become real CACIB as winner is already Int.ch. In Slovenia it is also possible to use one adult CAC towards jun title and so Teo finished his SLO Jun CH!!!
Super job Kristina & Teo
Thank you judge Mirja Lapanja

                              Herning & Årslev Shows in November


The double-int shows of Herning were held in the beginning of November and the Beardie Speciality in Årslev, at the end of November. I had contemplated going to Herning myself, as last year was a very successful for us there, but decided it would be too expensive as I had just spent a fortune entering dogs to our big Helsinki shows at the end of the year....
Still, some M-lanes did go. Anders and his boys made the trip from Sweden. To Herning aswell as to Årslev. How great!
In tough competition, best result for "Alex", SE, DK & NO CH Memorylane Sunsational, was Best male 4. Thank You Susanne Lindberg for very valuable handlinghelp too! Youngster "Rumba", Memorylane Ready To Rumba, can be a bit boisterous, but won his class EXCellently at every show and finished the season off in Style by going BM 3 and gaining his first CAC! Wayyy to GO Boys! 
Many Congrats to Anders, Alex & Rumba   
 
Thank You judges Rita Skadike-Kadina, Carol Mulcahy & Susanne Langhorst de Haan (last one breeder judge from kennel Scottsdale)

                                    JYVÄSKYLÄ Int Show 19.11.2013


Aaaand here I go againnn.... straight from nightshift to the show and then back to work after a looong 30 min break on the sofa
We had a bit of a rollercoaster-day and were not even spared of injury. But, still finishing with a smile on our faces, relying on good olde Girrrl Power! You guessed it, bests of today went to our ladies.....
* "Liinu", CIB & Multi Ch, EUW-13 Memorylane Game Set Match, went BOB
* "Lexxy", CIB & Multi Ch Memorylane Knoxx Off Your Sox took BB 3 & BOB-Vet

Many Thanks yet again to each and everyone helping in and out of the ring
Thank You judge, Ms. Leni Finne.

                                        LAHTI Int Show 26.10.2013


This show is only one hour away from us, so quite the luxury. Still, I got in a terrible hurry in the morning as Beardies & Am.Akitas were totally overlapping and rings were very far from eachother. Super Thanks to Hilde for showing Terra-the-akita! They got BB 2 & CACIB, Yeijjj!
But, more info soon on that here:
http://memorylaneakitas.webs.com/ 

In Beardies, "Elvis", M. Kiss The Lightning, was shown for the first time ever and he took Open/EXC 1, CQ & res.CAC! "Sulo", BISS, CIB & Multi Ch M. Storm In A T-Cup, went BM 3 with res.Cacib from Ch class. "Lexxy", CIB & Multi Ch M. Knoxx Off Your Sox, BB 2 from vet class and Breedersclass BOB with Honorary prize.
The STAR of the day was clearly "Elmo", Memorylane On A Wild Spell, going best Male 1 from junior class! He finished BOS with CAC & BOB-Jun
At a few shows per year we also have BIS-Junior competition and Lahti was one of them. Elmo did really Super, making it to TOP 7!!! In the saturday final was representatives from most breeds in groups 1, 3, 5 & 10, so a LOT of dogs!
We are Very Proud of Mr. Elmo
Thanks to All in our team for the whole day... Johanna, Nana, Hilde, Sanni & Jenna!

Thank You judges... Ms. Satu Tanner (breed) & Ms. Leni Finne (Bis-jun)

                                     SEINÄJOKI Int Show 19.10.2013

 

Again I left for this trip straight after nightshift at work and also returned straight to nightshift with no rest inbetween. The drive is long from us and the weather was frosty & wintery for the first time this year, so we took it easy. Usually Seinäjoki show is super crowded, but this year there was plenty of space. This starts promising, right.....
Well, despite the outer stuff being on point, I have to say this was a show I´d rather skipped. Why? I have No clue what the judge was looking for. Results veeery mixed. All our dogs got Excellent and also really Super critiques, some even reading "I would be proud to own this dog", etc... Not even a single fault in Any dog, Wow! Still, ours were excused from the ring first. UmmmWhat???
Ok, God AND some judges work in mysterious ways.....
Fortunately I still have a good sence of humour, so we had quite the cheerful way home  HUGE Thanks to Johanna for accompanying me all the way! 
Also HUGE Thanks to our whole team for being such great sports, U!
Judging was Mrs.Anne Indergaard


Here is "Rekku", CIB & Multi Ch, Multi W Memorylane Hold On Tight, pictured

                               TUULOS Group Speciality 5.10.2013


Today was the time to train with youngsters and I did bring along one "pro" to show the ropes too This was a show with Specialities for all groups but still divided in separate parts. Ours was for Herdingdogs & Spitzhounds. I first thought we were supposed to be in the ring on sunday 6.10 so a bit of panic with trying to organize overlapping stuff during the week....
The show itself went more than well and I was very happy with the results

* "Elmo", Memorylane On A Wild Spell: Jun/EXC 1, CQ, BM 3 & res.CAC
* "Sampo", JWW-13 & Balt JCh M. Samba Caramba: Open/EXC 1, CQ, BM 1, CAC & BOS! 
* "Vickan", Memorylane So What If I Wiggle: Jun/EXC 2
* "Nelli", Memorylane Reign Of Gold: Open/VG 3 (due to being veeeery bald )

                                  BALLERUP Int Show 22.9.2013


In Denmark there was the KBHV-show. Our southern Swedish filial was attending. Anders travelled with his boys and they had a very nice day indeed
"Rumba", Memorylane Ready To Rumba, WON again the juniorclass with CQ and also finished 4th Best Male with res.CAC. In addition to this, the judge came after the ring specifically to say to Anders; "You have a future STAR here". How great was that, Thank YOU judge, Mr. Peter Harsanyi!

                                         The Great White HUNTERS!


Every year my "hubby" Jouni, goes for many weeks on a hunting-trip to Northern Finland. It is almost like a spiritual journey.... aswell as primitive
Jouni hunts only birds, not big game at all. He also enjoys nature-walking & photographing a lot. He has 2 English Setters, who likewise enjoy the forest-life. Both are purely from show-lines but still have an incredible zest for hunting. I think this is how it should be! One should not rule out the other. Also, with a "beautiful" = Healthy construction, it is WAY EASIER to run around the forest for hours on end.... This year, the younger setter "Merlin", EEJW-12 Blue Baltic´s Rocks Off Your Sox, accompanied Jouni and what a Great trip they have had!


Did I do good dad? Got u a yummy Capercaillie!

                              HELSINKI Group Speciality 15.9.2013


Hmm, could there be a w/e with only one show....? No, not so often....
So even now I also went on Sunday. BUT, this time with only one dog. Yes, really! I wanted to make it a day for me & Leo.
This was a Group Speciality for Herdingdogs, Sighthounds & Terriers.
For some reason I was quite nervous and it didn´t help that Beardies were almost the last breed in the ring, so we had to wait quite a while. Finally it was our turn and Leo got what I soooo hoped for.... his final CAC! So now he is officially FI CH, LtJW-12, LvJW-12, EeJW-12, NordJW-12, World Club Junior W-12 Sandauri Lion King! YEEEIJ! 



Thank You Sari Siltavuori for taking this lovely pic of Leo after the ring!


 

                                     PORVOO Nat Show 14.9.2013


Today we went to a show in Porvoo. I almost didn´t make it in time as they had changed the location. I drove to the old place (where the show has been since birth of Jesus.... ok, not quite, but almost anyway) and there was Cirkus Finlandia! GAAH! Need to start reading those show-letters now..... Then a bit of panic set on as I didn´t have a navigator in my little Mazda, so I drove with window down and asked tons of people for directions. FINALLY got to the right spot but then I was in a MAD Hurry! Stuff was flying out of the car like I was Flash Gordon and the parking guy was yapping at me "this is not an un-load zone"..... Well, it is NOW! Fortunately the girls came to help and I could remove the car. Actually to a "non-parking zone" as the parking was full.... Maybe all this should have been a "sign" that I should have turned around and gone home
Ok, can´t win ´em all and did have reasonable results, but I didn´t quite agree / grasp some of the judges, Mrs. Anita Whitmarsh, ideas, even if she was a very pleasantly behaving lady.... 

* "Elmo", Memorylane On A Wild Spell: Jun/EXC 1, CQ, BM 4, CAC & BOB-Jun
* "Diesel", CIB & Multi Ch M. Show Me The Party: Ch/EXCellent 3rd & CQ
* "Rekku", CIB & Multi Ch & Multi W M. Hold On Tight: BM 3 & BOB-Vet
* "Liinu", CIB & Multi Ch M. Game Set Match: Ch/EXC 2, CQ & BB 2
* "Wilma", CIB & Multi Ch M. Strike A Pose: Ch/EXC 4, CQ & BB 4
* Breedersclass today Silver with Honorary prize

HUGE Thanks girls; Marika, Noora, Jonna & Sanni for helping with our personal Circus! Many Thanks & Congrats to all other helpers & owners alike!

                          ESTONIAN Obedience Championship 2013


In the middle of September "Roope", FI & EE CH Memorylane A Pirates Party, was invited to join a obedience team to compete for the National Championship. Tiina & Roope have been doing obedience mainly for fun, so it was to everybodys astonishment (Tiinas too!) that Roopes performance lead their team to WIN! So, now we can conclude that Fun & expertise don´t rule eachother out
Super Congrats Tiina, Roope & Team!

 

                                       VANTAA Nat Show 8.9.2013


Here we GO again..... Today it was time for Let´s GO All-breed National Show in Vantaa. Fortunately this is very close to us as my own car still is in Sweden being repaired and I had to squeeze a ton of stuff & dogs in a hrmm, bit more interesting vehicle.... Oh well, it was sooo worth a few extra drops of sweat as the results were sunny & hot like the weather....

                 Hódmezővásárhely Int Show 7.9.2013 HUNGARY


As we were getting ready for our show, Kristina travelled with her gang to Croatias neighbour-country and there to a city whos name I sooo cannot pronounce
Oh well, no matter.... Kristina had lovely success with her boy "Teo", Memorylane Leap Of Faith, who got JCAC & his 5th! Jun title; HU JCH aswell as Jun BOB & shortlisted for JBIS with Huge competition! Well Done Kristina & Teo!!!

                 HERDING BEARDIE CHAMPIONSHIP 1.9.2013


Once per year, there is held a herding Championship-competition-of-the-Year for Beardies. Johanna loves to do herding with her girls and despite that they come entirely from show-lines, they are SUPER herders! This makes me extremely Happy as it really prooves a point I have made for years.... Form & Function should go together! Good construction (what we also call Beauty in the showring) will enable the dog to work in a most efficient matter. Also ability & good temperament is required, but withouth the proper healthy construction, it is like putting a Ferrari-motor into a Lada.... it goes fast for a moment, but then breaks. So, this is why I firmly believe that both construction & temper are equally important and there should not be separate show- & workinglines. So, how did the girls do then....?
"Pixie", Memorylane Thirty Sec To Mars and her mommy "Lexxy", CIB & Multi CH Memorylane Knoxx Off Your Sox, BOTH WON their classes!!!!
Lexxy also became TOP HERDER of the Entire trial!!!!
WAT TO GOOOOO, SUPER CONGRATS!!!!!


Lexxy at Work!

                                      GENEVA EUW-13 SWITZERLAND

So it was time for the second BIG trip for this year. First WDS and now EDS. This is actually the first time I have made these both in one year and what a good thing I did....
On 25.8 we started our loooong journey from Finland to Switzerland.... 5800km alltogether for this trip. Also a few stop-overs with Beardie-friends, Thank You Liz & Flora for Super accommondations!  
Then a Huge part of such long trips is the drivingdrivingdriving..... Until the car broke.... UAAH! It had been making a horrible sound for a while but somehow I kept hoping it would last all the way home. Well, it didn´t. Fortunately the breakdown happened on the way back, close to Liz in Sweden, so help was near, Thank You Niclas for towing us to your place in the middle of the night!
Thanks also to Kirsi, Kia, Suski & Tiia,
who squeezed our gang into their car and transported us the final bit, from Skåne to Finland

But was the trip worth all this? OH YES IT WAS!!!!
On thursday there was a CACIB show, which started this show-cluster. Judging was Mr. Christian Eymar-Dauphin from France. We walked away with "Sampo", JWW-13 Memorylane Samba Caramba, taking BOB-Jun & "Liinu", CIB & Multi CH Memorylane Game Set Match, winning CH-class with CAC aswell as res.CACIB! Also our breedersclass was shortlisted in BIS!
 


Sampo on the move

Next day it was time for EDS.... Sampo was up first and he finished third in jun males. Then next one from our team was "Diesel", CIB & Multi CH Memorylane Show Me The Party. Hilde showed him and they did Awesome.... VICE EUROPEAN WINNER 2013!!! 


Hilde & Diesel, DO have a reason to SMILE

Next up was veteranclass.... I was showing "Rekku", CIB & Multi CH & Multi W Memorylane Hold On Tight, and he was finding some veeeery interesting smells on the carpet. I really had a handful in trying to make him show nicely for me.... but he did it! And gained the title of EUROPEAN VETERAN WINNER 2013! YAAY!


Glad someone captured Rekku the few moments he was standing still

At this point I felt we had already got soooo much, so I sent the girls on their merry way as I couldn´t imagine we would get anything more. How wrong was I.... 
There was still "Liinu", CIB & Multi CH Memorylane Game Set Match, to go. And THAT she indeed did... The judges comments to me was that this girl immediately caught his eye when she came in the ring and he was very pleased that she moved & carried herself so naturally like he hoped she would do. He also liked that the coat was not exaggerated and she had a happy Beardie-spirit. These words were important to me as that is how I view Liinu also 
And so Liinu became EUROPEAN WINNER 2013, SWISS CH aswell as BEST OF BREED!!!!


!!! WOOOW, sooooooooo HAPPPYYYYYY !!!

This was the first time we showed under Mr. Michael Forte from Ireland and I was extremely Honoured that he thought so highly of our entire gang!
I also want to express my Heartfelt THANKS to ALL from our wonderful Team who have made this possible; Owners, handlers & groomers alike
Special Thanks for on-location handling-team, Hilde, Nea & Tiia, U were a HUGE help! And to TOP this Perfect day off, Hilde showed mother-son-team Liinu & Diesel to....

 
BEST IN SHOW 2 BRACE!!!

All I can say is that I´m ever so happy and grateful that hard work, dedication & determination DO pay off.... Also, there is no need for special tricks or politics and that´s how it SHOULD be! Might be living in a "Nina-bubble" but that´s not always a bad thing

Thank You Mari Ashworth for great travelling-company and Thank You ALL who welcomed us with open arms & sincere congratulations, your kindness meant a LOT to me

                 TORNIO & YLIVIESKA 2 x Int Shows 20.-21.7.2013


Aaaaand agaaaain we opted this w/e to go for the bigger International All-breed shows that were far away from us, instead of a closer smaller show for only part of the groups. We drove all night with Hilde and our stories kept getting veeery funny by the end of the road. In our own minds anyway, hehe  
At the Tornio show we noticed that all other Beardies were Swedish in one way or another and we had the only Finnish bred entries.
Needless to say that I was quite PROUD that our dogs took BOB & BOS aswell as some other nice placements too.....

                                                TUURI Show 9.6.2013


As we were elsewhere, Laura took "Svenne", NordJW-09 Typografen´s Netscape Navigator, to this show. Tuuri = Luck in Finnish, but no shuch thing here. The verdict was that Svenne was not one, but two dogs (how lucky for us, 2 for the price of 1  ) and thus only EXC/1 from Open dogs. Svenne was the only male at this show.
Can´t say that I agree with the verdict this time.....
Thanks Laura for putting up a good effort anyway. 
Judging was done by Mrs. Nina Janger, kennel Bristregal

                      Tallinn EEW-13 Int Show 2.6.2013 ESTONIA


Today I got a shocking wake-up from my hubby as he had got a call from Marika, who had waited for me already a bit. I had overslept! Like 2 hours!!! I rushed like MAD around for 10 min, getting all my stuff, whilst dogs were out in the yard. Then had 30min to drive to Helsinki (50km and a Lot of traffic-lights!) as our ship was leavin...g in 45min. PANIC! I called Christa to bring Gloria by taxi to the harbour as there was No time to pick her up at her house. Also asked Christa to try and hold the ferry, which she did like a champ ♥ Picked up Marika on the way by a traffic-light. Drove like a Formula 1 driver and we made it!!!! OMG, what a close call!
Then I had to get a cabin as I definitely had to shower and get dressed too

                               WDS Budapest 19.5.2013 HUNGARY


This was THE day.... time for the BIG one, World Dog Show....
We had travelled thousands of km for this main event and had been anticipating it greatly! I had never shown my dogs so far away from home withing Europe. I was really looking forward to this day. Unfortunately not all goes like in fairytales, so I ended up being extremely busy and had virtually No time to sit down and look at the dogs. But then again, some karma does exist as we did get the ultimate prize in the end....
I want to Thank All who helped me, Hilde, Mari, Kristina, Nea & Suski! Thanks also to Deborah for lending me stuff as I had actually forgot my grooming-equipment at the hostel! I think only I am capable of doing something like that at Wds.... Oh well, at least I can say the doggies were very naturally presented

Never ever in a million years could I have dreamed of such success. I value these BOB & BOB-Jun wins Highly! Judging was done by respected breeder-judge, Mrs. Ildikó Muzslai, kennel Double Scotch, THANK YOU!

I am happy that my breedingwork is recognized worldwide and want to continue to produce long-lasting soundly constructed functional Beardies with a glimt in their eye & a touch of glamour too

Here it began, first show our Hungarian touné. We arrived yesterday morning and immediately had some interesting happenings as I got bit in my hand and had to go to the emergency-station. My hand was big as a balloon and I thought how am I going to do many days of grooming & showing now..... Fortunately I got some antibiotics from the pharmacy (NOT the doctor! uh....) and so the fun and games could continue

                         News from ESTONIA & AUSTRALIA


During a few days, I have got many pleasant news from abroad....
In faraway Australia "Tiplu", Memorylane Runbberband Man has passed his Herding Instinct Test! Many Congrats

Then a bit closer to us, but still abroad, "Roope", Memorylane A Pirates Party, has taken part in some Agility- And obediencecompetitions with lovely success. Out of 5 Agility-courses over 2 days, he got nice result from 4 and also one completely faultless course! Then a bit later, time for obedience. Roope did so great and finished on 5th place and points for 1st prize. Also "kid-brother" Leo, Memorylane Hip-Hop Don´t Stop, got to make his debute in obedience. And What a debute! He finished 3rd in his class!
Well done Tiina & boys!

                                    LAHTI Int Show 28.4.2013


Double shows this w/e and I was also going to work inbetween, evening-shifts, nightshifts.... crazy schedule

Results today weren´t as spectacular as yesterday but we didn´t go home completely empty-handed either.
Juniors had a different judge and he thought our Sampo was the size of a bitch.... ummm ookeey, gotta be the biggest bitch I´ve seen

But hey, this is what makes shows interesting. Different opinions on different days Anyway, todays best for us were...."Rekku", CIB & Multi CH Memorylane Hold On Tight, took BOB-Vet & Best Male 4. "Sulo", CIB & Multi CH Memorylane Storm In A T-Cup, Best Male 3. "Mandy", CIB & Multi CH Memorylane Praise My Name, Best Bitch 4. Rest of the gang, Sampo, Diesel & Jesse were Excellent too, Jesse with CQ and third placement in Ch-class. WELL DONE All!
Thank you judges, Mr. Rony Doedijns & Mr. Harri Lehkonen (juniorclass)


Diesel & Jonna on the very right
(c)Dina Johansson

Then there was another competition at Lahti also.... the Junior Handling qualification for the Finnish team going to the Nordic Championship. There was nearly 60 junior handlers competing so NOT an easy task. Young Jonna Lehto competed with our "Diesel", CIB & Multi CH Memorylane Show Me The Party, and she did an Awesome job! Diesel is actually not the easiest guy to show.... I always make a joke that he has a drop of bloodhound in him as he is VERY adamant on sniffing the carpet, especially whilst trotting
But Jonna has trained with him many times and now it really paid off. She finished 5th and was chosen to be the deputy-member for the Finnish team!!! WOW, we were VERY PROUD! Jonna & Diesel, you were the STARS of today!
BIG Hugs
& Congrats ♥♥♥
Thank You judge, Ms Sanna Vartiainen.

                       ***BEARDIE OF THE YEAR 2012***


The results of this competition were finally released at the spring meeting of the BCCF. And what a year we´ve had once again....
In Top Show-Beardie of the year, 3 Gorgeous M-boys took tripple pole-position with only few points inbetween! Just SUPER!!!

1. "Sulo" CIB & Multi CH Memorylane Storm In A T-Cup 61p.
2. "Rekku" CIB & Multi CH Memorylane Hold On Tight 60p.
3. "Diesel" CIB & Multi CH Memorylane Show Me The Party 58p.

 
One of my alltime favourite pics of Sulo


The list goes on all the way to Top 20 of the year. Alltogether 9 of these 20 dogs are M-lanes! And 8 different combinations.... Must be doing something right
Also one more doggie on this list I want to mention.... our wonderful Russian import "Molli", Multi Winner Sandauri Let´s Go Go Go went #10 in very limited showing. I also got info that Molli went in only 2 shows #9 Best Beardie in Denmark! WOW, quite happy about that too!

Molli on the Go Go Go....

In the Top Veteran of the year, "Rekku", went #1! This was what we had aimed for since Rekku turned 8 in April. Really great achievement as he competed only 8 months in veterans. Him going Top Beardie #2 was only an added bonus but heh.... quite some bonus! What a Super-grandpa this fella is
But Rekku was not the only M-veteran placing in Top Vet..... "Leevi", CIB & Multi CH Memorylane Big Ben Jammin, took Bronze and also girls "Pinni" & "Lucy" were placed! I am really Proud of these Golden oldies, who prove that a solid construction will carry a loooong ways

 

Rekku first time out as veteran.... BIS 1! 

In the Breederscompetition we went #1 again, for the 10th! year running! This year with a little twist though. In addition to the traditional showbreeders-comp, the BCCF had decided to put on an other one, that counted for the most part everything but showpoints. I was a bit on the fence with this competition as I felt it should have been an "All-round Beardie" comp for the individual dog. I do think it´s great that people participate in agility & obedience & dog-dancing, etc. but don´t really feel I, as a breeder, should be awarded for someone elses training efforts. So I decided not to enter this competition, even if we actually WOULD have finished with very high points....

    One of our BIS-placing groups....

So Yes, there are M-lanes also involved with other sports than shows  

 I can and WILL honestly say that most of our doggies are absolutely suitable for training various sports, but it is up to the dogs owner to do the training with the dog. That is something I can´t do for anyone, only provide the base, a dog with suitable temperament.
Someone who has proven this to be a fact, is for example the #1 Top ShowBeardie, "Sulo". He is also #1 Top Agility Male and #6 overall Top Agility Beardie of 2012! All kudos to his owner, Nanas, hard training! WELL DONE!
Also others had nice results in Agility & obedience.... Hugo, Pyry & Wilma

 


Sulo & Nana doing agility


HUGE THANKS to ALL owners of the M-lanes doing so well in and out of the rings, may your chosen sport be whichever. I am very very grateful that you love and adore your Beardies as valued family-members  
THANK YOU for the continuous co-operation & good times we have enjoyed!!!
Let there be maaaany more to come

                                                HERDING 20.1.2013


Again we drove towards Turku but today we had a much more giving day.
"Lexxy", CIB & Multi Ch M. Knoxx Off Your Sox and her kids "Pixie", M. Thirty Sec To Mars, "Jönssi", FI Ch & EE JCh M. Sonata Arctica and "Rasta", M. Made Ewe Look took part in the herding training. Also "Retu", M. Ravishing Rick Rude and "Rekku", CIB & Multi Ch M. Hold On Tight, attended. There was multiple passes for each dog and a bit varying methods of training. All others had been herding before, but Rekku-the-veteran was doing it for the first time. All have the instinct for herding even though they come purely from "show-lines". This makes me as a breeder happy. And even though I haven´t especially bred for herding abilities, I haven´t bred away from them either. I am a firm believer that a certain "working spark" within the dog, helps in all hobbies Ok, so Jönssi has a bit too much of the "good stuff", but that´s another story.....
Thanks for a Super day to All attending and especially Johanna, who organized everything!

                                         TURKU Int Show 19.1.2013

                                         KAJAANI Int Show 13.1.2013


Yet again we made the looooong trip up north, to show in what can propably be classified as the most cold show-venue in Finland. Oh well, dog-people are crazy
First up was "Diesel", CIB & Multi CH M. Show Me The Party. He performed very nicely, but got a comment of too much coat from the judge. What can one do, it is good quality so it just grows and this is supposed to be a non-trim breed.... But no worries, we love Mr. D just the way he is. He ended up as Best Male 3 with CQ. Next up was two veterans; "Leevi", CIB & Multi CH M. Big Ben Jammin and "Rekku", CIB & Multi Ch M. Hold On Tight. This time Leevi was the winner as the judge didn´t really find anything good with Rekku. Oh yes and too long coat ofcourse on Rekku also
Leevi ended up as Best Male 4, BOB-vet and "BIS 5 Vet". In bitches we only had one to attend this time. "Liisa", FI & BY CH M. U R My Sunshine, who was our star today, taking Best Bitch 1 with CACIB & BOS. And must say that I was happy to see that our friends dog Leo was Bob & Big 1, Many Congrats! We also got some nice result in the big ring with our breedersgroup going BIS 3!
So all in all, I´m happy we made the trip....
Many Congrats and Thanks to owners, handlers, great travel-company & friends for everything!

Thank You judges who appreciated our gang.

                                  Finnish Winner Int Show 9.12.2012


On sunday it was time for the even bigger, Fin W-12 show.
We drove to the venue with my "hubby" and as we arrived, he ofcourse got a call for on-duty-work.... so now I was missing a very valuable pair of hands in preparing dogs and was suddenly in a terrible hurry. Also had to find a handler for our English Setter as the rings were totally overlapping with Beardies and ofcourse in a different hall, like "miles" away. Thank You Tiia for kindly handling Mertsi! ♥
Our judge was a new aquaintance for us, which I always find interesting. He was a kind person and also liked our gang, so I was ofcourse very happy about that too
Results below....

* "Velor", S. Night Velor: Jun EXC/2, res. FiJW-12 & CQ
* "Nöpö", M. Got Some Mighty Magic: Open EXC/1, CQ, Best Male 4 with CAC!

                        BRUSSELS Winner Int Show 8.12.2012, BELGIUM


As we had been in Helsinki, I got a truly wonderful txt from Linda.....
"Enni", NDL CH Memorylane Dame Of The Game, had attended the BIG winner show in mainland Europe. Enni competed in Open class and WON. Not only her class, not only all the bitches, but also the BREED! And as icing on the cake, she is now also Belgian Champion and got Crufts qualification for 2013! Did it end here..... NO. Enni also went Group 2!!! WoooooW, I am so very Proud & Happy for Ennis mom & dad!
HUGE CONGRATS Linda & Stef

What a Super finish to this showyear!

                               Helsinki Winner Int Show 8.12.2012


Today it started! First day of our two biggest shows of the year. The Helsinki shows culminate the entire showyear here in Finland. These are a "must" to attend! Over 8000! dogs each day and also a big entry of over 40 Beardies. How exciting!!!
The only thing that was a bit awkward on this saturday, was that junior males & all veterans, were judged by a different judge than the rest of the breed. This was due to the max. 85 dogs/judge getting filled for our "main" judge. So a bit of jumping back and forth but we managed still nicely.
In the "main" Beardiering, the results were more mixed than I expected and I didn´t quite get the idea what the judge was looking for. Oh well, a bit for everyone then.... and we did get some really nice placements, so I have to be Happy
Best results below....

* "Velor", S. Night Velor: Debute in Jun class... EXC/1, HeJW-12, CQ, BM 3 & CAC!

* "Jesse", CIB & Multi CH M. The Holy Man: EXC/3 in Ch-class
* "Sulo", CIB & Multi CH M. Storm In A T-Cup: EXC/2, CQ, Best Male 2 with res.CACIB
* "Rekku", CIB & Multi CH M. Hold On Tight: EXC/1, CQ, BOB-veteran with HP


Lexxy on the podium

* "Molli", LT JW-12, WCJW-12, DKW-12, DKJW-12, NORD JW-12 S. Let´s Go Go Go:
First time entered in Open as she turned 18 months on friday and couldn´t go in Junior anymore.... the risk payed off: EXC/1, CQ, Best bitch 3 with CAC!
* "Lexxy", CIB & Multi CH M. Knoxx Off Your Sox: Performing sooo Perfectly and thus finishing: EXC/1, CQ, Best bitch 1 with CACIB, HEW-12 & BOS!!!
* Breedersgroup with Diesel, Rekku, Jesse & Lexxy: BOB with HP AND shortlisted in BIS to TOP 8! from nearly 100 groups all-breed! I was HUGELY Proud, YAY!!!

                                  PORVOO Match Show 2.12.2012


Again today there was a chance to go and practice with some youngsters. I decided to take different dogs than last time, so everyone gets an opportunity to learn the ropes
The babies were first wild ofcourse, but in the ring they did perform nicely. "Gloria", Memorylane The Divine Miz M, ended up as Group 2 and "Elmo", Memorylane On A Wild Spell, went Group 1, so not too shabby

Many CONGRATS to owners of these beauties
Thank You judge Mrs Anneli Pukkila.

                                     SALO Match Show 24.11.2012


At the moment there are no puppyshows to go train our youngsters so we decided to go with "Randy", Memorylane Move Heaven´N Earth, to a Match Show instead. But it was almost like attending a puppyshow after all as there was nearly 50! pups alltogether, Wow! Randy was the very last one so we had to wait quite a bit. But that was fine as we really got the feel for the show-atmosphere and that was the point anyway ;o) It also calmed a veeery excited Beardie-baby down just perfectly. So, Randy was bouncing only moderately and behaving nicely the rest of the time. I was more than pleased :o) In the end our boy, who was turning 5 months on this very day, was crowned BIS 2 Puppy!!! YAY!!!
Thanks to Jouni for accompanying us and Thank U judge Maarit Haavisto

Ready To Rumba, was making his debute in the puppy-class..... Despite being a bit naughty, he still charmed the judge and so was ultimately crowned BOB-puppy! Well Done

                                    JYVÄSKYLÄ Int Show 11.11.2012


I went myself to one of the biggest Int shows in Finland with over 5000 dogs entered. We had a rocky start as there was some mix-up with entries, one of our dogs couldn´t go and thus I also didn´t have a breeders-class
Then Laura got very ill and was taken to the hospital so also Svenne stayed home. Our team suddenly shrunk some more....

However, did end up having a nice day after all.
Girls "Lexxy", CIB & Multi CH M. Knoxx Off Your Sox & "Liinu", CIB & Multi CH M. Game Set Match, did an excellent job, Liinu also being "Best bitch 5". Then our golden oldie, was SO in Love with some girls in season and absolutely determined to attach himself to my leg, especially in the finals..... "Rekku", CIB & Multi CH WVW-12 M. Hold On Tight, still did a Great job, going BOB, BOB-vet & BIG 4 in a HUGE competitive herding-group! In Bis-Vet Hilde was showing Mr. R as my knee was not co-operating anymore.... and they got shortlisted! Soooo Happy allover!!!

THX to all helping hands again! Specials to Johanna & Hilde 
And HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to hubby Jouni!

                        HELSINKI All-breed Puppy-Show 10.11.2012


Today was time to do some training with two of our babies, "Elmo", M. On A Wild Spell and "Sampo", M. Samba Caramba. Elmo, 5 months, was first up in the baby-class. His mommy had gone on a work-trip so Mr. E came to us for a sleep-over. He had a ball with our Randy! At the show he was a bit tired after "partying hard" all friday night but still did a nice job. Thus as the youngest in his class, he WON! Later he ended up Best Male 2 with Honorary Prize. The winner was nearly 9 months so I was very happy  
Sampo, 7 months, took part in older class and finished 2nd, also with Hon.Prize. He had soooo much Fun and just wanted to Play (normal puppy, eh?!) and we will have to practise some more but we have time. I was really proud of these lovely kiddies, Many Congrats to their families!

Thank You judge Ms. Leni Finne

            DKW & NORDW Shows Herning, DENMARK 3.-4.11.12


This weekend I travelled on another really looooong journey....... I have actually shown in Denmark only twice before, ever! as it is no small trip for us. My friend Sari Vottonen asked like a million times if I would come, as it was double winner shows and at the very last minute I said ok. What a good decision that turned out to be
Our trip was a bit of a roller-coaster of all crazy happenings between heaven and earth and I have to say that even if we had a lot of fun (buying of THE chrystal chandelier and all....), it also was propably the heaviest trip I have been on. Weather of pouring rain didn´t help either.....

The showgrounds were HUGE and naturally our rings were scattered all over the place..... so a LOT of running back and forth..... on the upside I´ve propably lost a ton of weight as ofcourse there was no time to eat either

On saturday even before going into the ring at all, I was just SO tired with no sleep and sore allover so I just wanted to go home immediately. But then the gentleman judge turned my mood totally..... He was wonderfully kind and joking and so my spirits lifted quite magically. Thank YOU Mr. Knut-Sigurd Wilberg


Molli saturday
(c)Geron Pihl

On saturday "Molli", LT JW-12, WCJW-12 Sandauri Let´s Go Go Go got not 1 but 2 titles from junior class! And also BOS over champions! Wow, I was very Happy! Her new titles are DK JW-12 & DKW-12. On sunday she repeated the junior title again, so that means NORD JW-12...... What a Smashing girl she is!


Molli with Hilde on sunday
(c)Ronja Sarasvuo

Brother "Leo", LT JW-12, LV JW-12, EEJW-12, WCWJ-12 Sandauri Lion King, took the title on sunday so also he is now NORD JW-12!
These shows were the siblings last time in jun class and what a finish it was!
I also had a few M-lanes with me and they had equally wonderful results.
Baby "Randy", M. Move Heaven ´N Earth, was making his debute at the tender age of 4 months, going BOB- & BOS-baby "Rekku", CIB & Multi CH, WVW-12 M. Hold On Tight got on sunday the NORD VW-12 title along with CAC -> DK CH!!! "Liinu", CIB & Multi Ch M. Game Set Match, was on fire and won the Ch-class on sunday. On saturday she had a bit too much fun and after much deliberation, the judge placed her 2nd. That same fire cost her the title on sunday. Oh well, that girl still has got the mooooves

Thus she gained the CACIB & CAC and can now add DK CH to her name.


No pic of Liinu in DK but here she is some months before
(c)Johanna Korpijaakko 

One non-Beardie was also with me. English Setter "Merlin", EEJW-12 Blue Baltic´s Rocks Your Sox, took 2 X res.Cacib -> 2 X CACIB, YEAH!
So a bit of everything for everyone, I am HAPPY!

I also finally got to meet Anders with family & dogs, this was Very much-awaited! I am really Proud on how wonderfully he takes care & shows M-boys Alex & Rumba
Many many THANKS for the whole w/e to my travelbuddy Sari, aswell as all helping hands in and out of the ring Jonna, Hilde & Ronja too!
Thank You judges, Mr. Knut-Sigurd Wilberg, GB (saturday) & Mrs. Wera Hübenthal, Norway (sunday)

                         SEINÄJOKI INT Show 27.10.2012


This was the last show of the Finnish Kennelclubs showyear. It always starts with Jyväskylä and ends with Seinäjoki. So that there will be adequate time to count & verify the dog of the year points before awards seremony in December. So a very important show for many..... This year it seemed that a lot of the top dogs did not succeed at this show and this curse hit us too..... thus, it wasn´t our day. But that´s life, not all days can be.
Best result from our Beardie-gang went to "Nöpö", M. Got Some Mighty Magic, who finished 3rd Best Male with CQ and res. CAC. Well done Nöpö & daddy Juha!

BIG THANKS to Laura for having us stay at her home!
Also Thanks to all helping hands in and out of the ring....
Beardiejudge was Norman Deschuymere from Belgium
Also our Akitagirl "Terra", EE JCH, EEJW-12, EEW-12, BALTW-12 Travistock Timeless, was entered. Her ring overlapped completely with Beardies. I was very fortunate to find a handler for her at the last minute as I really didn´t even have one second to spare at the AA-ring.... Thank You Mervi for being so kind to help! Terra ended up Best Bitch 3 with CAC & res. CACIB! 
Thank You Akitajudje Mr. Petrus Roosenboom from Belgium  
Done with the rings so I started the looong way home and the wait for finals to be over. Then it would be clear which position we would finish at in the Breeder-of-the-year competition.... SO much HARD work during the whole year! Suspence until the very last minute. And then, the battery to my phone died. NOOOOOO!!!! I was driving nearly 5h! without having any way of knowing, oh, the AGONY! Finally came home and scared the pants of a sleeping hubby..... WELL..... TELL ME ALREADY.....!!! He had put the message to me already hours ago, checking from internet the results, but didn´t know that I hadn´t received it..... YES, we DID finish in TOP 10 Breeder All-breeds for the third year running! YIPPPPEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!! Crazy breeder bouncing around the kitchen!!!!!!!!
THANK YOU TEAM! ♥ ♥ ♥ U ALL SO MUCH! THANK U JUDGES!


Lynda being happy too!

                                        TURKU Int. Show 21.10.2012

Wasn´t entirely our day in the breed-ring and veteran Rekku decided to make a full stop too
Oh well, they aren´t machines you know.....

Still, by the end of the day we pulled it together and had a glorious finish to this show. Boy oh boy was I HAPPY!!!

                                TURKU Group Speciality 22.9.2012


Today I wanted to have a relaxed day and go train with our youngsters.....
But, as I was approaching the show, I got a call that I should hurry up as the judging was about to begin....
Ummm what? It was over 1h before the time on the timetable....
So, I suddenly got a mad hurry and goodbye relaxing day....
I rushed into the show as everyone was waiting for us. Marika & I brushed junior boy Leo, one on each side and then we jumped straight into the ring. Leo was spinning around and having waaaay to much fun in the ring. His sister was barking non-stop outside the ring, I wanna plaaay tooo! Oh yes, now I was extremely relaxed.... Not.
Well, both still won their classes with EXC and Molli even went BOS, what troopers!
Also Jesse attended but didn´t want to co-operate on the slippery carpet so no success for him

Thanks to Marika & judge Mrs. Gunilla Skallman from Sweden. Official results below.

BIG THX Friends for a Lovely day and Congratulations!
Thank You judge Mrs. Maija Heinilä from Norway

                HOLLOLA American Akita National Speciality 1.9.2012


This was the first time in history the Finnish AA-assosiation organised their very own speciality. Before it was always in conjuction with the Finnish companion dog club show. So, absolutely a "must" to attend!
The day was freezing to the bone and this was to be the beginning of my pneumonia. Next week I was SO ILL!

"Terra", EE JCH, EE W-12 & EE JW-12 Travistock Timeless, was entered in intermediate and finished EXCellently 2nd with CQ from a tough judge. So we were happy.
Sort of....

Big THANKS to Reetta for great company, yummy cake & drinks aswell as letting us stay at her tent! Judging was done by Mrs. Meg Purnell-Carpenter, UK (Overhill AA:s).

                         Bearded Collie Clubshow, Holland 1.9.2012


In mainland Europe Linda & Stef hadn´t been showing their girl for a while, but today was the day. And what a DAY they had! "Enni", Memorylane Dame Of The Game, won All bitches and finished BOS out of a LOT of Beardies!!! WOW, I´m sooooo Proud 
SUPER CONGRATS guys!

Many THANKS to judge, Mrs. Kim Evans from UK (treebeard Beardies)

                                Herding Test, SOMERO 25.-26.8.2012


A bunch of Beardies doing what they were originally meant to.....
Most are from "show-lines" and that prooves that brains & beauty Can be in the same dog. I actually have yet to meet a Beardie that would look themselves in the mirror and say "oooh, I´m just too pretty to get down & dirty". Moreover, even if we haven´t specifically bred to improve herding instinct, we also haven´t bred it away. Thus, most Beardies still have it more or less
Well, one that does have a LOT is "Pixie", Memorylane Thirty Sec From Mars. She is daughter to CIB & Multi Ch Memorylane Knoxx Off Your Sox, who also is a very excited herder. Today Pixie passed her herding-instict test! Many CONGRATS Johanna & Pixie!


Job well done, let´s have a kiss then

                                  TERVAKOSKI Int. Show 25.8.2012

He hadn´t been in the ring for a while but still did a great performance with his young handler and they did awesome. Svenne & Jonna finished 2nd out of a LOT of competitors, Well Done!

                           Baltic Winner 2012, ESTONIA 18.8.2012


Today I was working so no shows for me personally.
However, our American Akitagirl got to travel with her co-owner across the gulf. Hannas daughter Laura was handling and doing a wonderful job as usual. So, our "Terra", EE JCH, EEJW-12 & EEW-12 Travistock Timeless, can now add the title of
BALTW-12 to her name! This was her first shot at the CACIB and she got that too! Finally Terra went BOS with CAC from Intermediate class, YAY

Judging was Mrs. Barbka Novak, Slo. Thank You.

                Albury Beardie Speciality 11.-13.8.2012, AUSTRALIA


News from downunder.... There was a 3-day Beardie Extravaganza that I think is organized only every second year, if I understood correctly. This was also the debute-show for our "Tiplu", Memorylane Rubberband Man. He is a wild boy but did manage to keep his feet on the ground most of the time, so did get placed every day with a first and two seconds. Tim & Karin were very pleased with how he was taking the whole long trip and did describe him as "bomb-proof". Makes me very happy that he has settled in to his new home just wonderfully.
THANKS ever so much for doing a Super job with Mr. T ♥


Wow, what can I say.... Soooo Handsome!
(c)Tim & Karin Finlayson

                      Annual Finnish Beardie Speciality 11.8.2012


This is ofcourse the much-awaited #1 event of the year.... The location varies but mostly it is held in southern Finland as this is where the majority of the Beardies are located. Still, there are many also coming from afar and it is a trip well worth to make Again, we had a warm-spirited day with lots of lovely dogs attending. The judge came from Germany this time, Mrs Kerstin Selle, kennel Philemon. There were 84 dogs entered and all M-lanes did EXCellently. Most also placed in their respective classes, so I was a very happy & proud breeder

* "Leo", LTJW-11 LVJW-12 EEJW-12 S. Lion King: 1st in Jun, BOS-Jun & "BM 5"
* "Diesel", MULTI CH, WCW-12, HeW-11 M. Show Me The Party: 3 / 15 & CQ in Ch
* "Jönssi", FI CH Memorylane Sonata Arctica: Wild boy went 6 / 15 with CQ in ch
* "Sulo", CIB & Multi Ch M. Storm In A T-Cup: BM 1, BOS & BIS FINNISH BRED!!!!

* "Lexxy", CIB & Multi Ch Memorylane Knoxx Off Your Sox: 4 / 19 & CQ in ch

Honey To Knight (who actually made two cuts in ch) and last but not least veteran "Lynda", CIB & Multi Ch M. Oneder Woman, who still had Super sparkle after having stayed at home for so many years. 
Our Breedersclass was also present and today we took Silver with Honorary prize. This was the only one of all the presented groups where every dog had gotten placings in the classes & CQ:s too, also including the Bis Finnish bred dog.... A Very even & typy bunch that I was Proud to present


Unfortunately our photographers computer is broken so for now we have to
settle for this shot captured by phone-cam from the actual camera-screen

                         2 X PÄRNU Int. Shows, Estonia 4.-5.8.2012


As I was way up in eastern Finland, I couldn´t go to Estonia at the same time. But, someone else did... Heidi Helanen was travelling there with her own corgis and had agreed to take also a Beardiegirl with her. So, "Nelli", Memorylane Reign Of Gold, travelled across the pond and went into the ring. On the first day the judge liked her very much and she got Jun CAC and was BOB-Jun too! But on the second day the judge thought she was still in the middle of development, so only VG. I have to say that I´m always Very amused when judges think a junior-Beardie is not fully developed.... Newsflash, they shouldn´t be at that age! And that´s why there is different classes according to different ages

Still a nice weekend for Nelli overall, Congrats to her owner and BIG Thanks to Heidi!!!

                                3 x KUOPIO Int. Shows 3.-5.8.2012


This week there was the only 3-day show in Finland. The show is organized only every 2 years and is a HUGE event! This time abt 10.000 entries alltogether.... I was however a bit bummed already in advance about the weather-forecast, it was supposed to be heavy rain & some thunder too All 3 days
But we really had the weather-gods on our side this time as most of the w/e was dry and even sunny! What a morale-booster, That already felt like winning the Jackpot

We had a bit of different dogs on each day but still had some wonderful success. It was well worth taking part in this heavy show-cirquit so far away from home.
Below you can see results day by day.....

                                          KEMI Int Show 21.7.2012


This show is veeeery far from us, in Lapland. I had hurt my knee, so no chance I was going to be able to drive here. We had to make some elaborate arrangements but could make the trip work after all.... The girls were driving with the dogs & my car and I was flying on saturday morning I wasn´t able to handle much but was making myself useful as kennelgirl, taking care of grooming, packing & organizing
Our results were a bit mixed and I was a bit surprised about some of the judges comments.... ok, there are as many people as opinions and so be it. But to claim that the girls would show the dogs hanging them from the chains, is absolutely untrue. Have to set the record straight that I am VERY particulate with holding the dogs up gently and naturally under the head! Yes, the other hand is held by the neck so the leash don´t slip and sometimes the chain can be held up for visual effect but Never choking! Hmph! Here below our group at this show....

 

* "Puppe", Memorylane Right Said Fred: Excellently 1st in jun males 
* "Diesel", MULTI CH, WCW-12, HeW-11 M. Show Me The Party: BOS with CACIB 
* "Rekku", CIB & Multi Ch Memorylane Hold On Tight: EXC/2
* "Leevi", CIB & Multi Ch Memorylane Big Ben Jammin: Best Male 2 & BOB-Vet
* "Wilma", CIB & Multi Ch Memorylane Strike A Pose: Best Bitch 3
* "Sohvi", Multi Ch, Multi W Memorylane Steppin Out To Party: Best Bitch 4
* Breedersclass with Diesel, Rekku, Wilma & Sohvi: BOB with Honorary Prize

Super THANKS to EVERYONE making this trip possible, the organizing wasn´t easy....

CONGRATULATIONS All on lovely results!
Especially Maisu & Aatu on Rekkus success AND your wedding anniversary
THANKS yet again to every single helping hand in and out of the ring!
Also Thank U to the judges!!! Mr. Arne Foss was doing Beardies and also teaching a new prospect judge. I have to say I was impressed on the positive and enthusiastic way he was speaking about our breed. Too many times teachers are only concentrating on emphasising faults. I wish there was more of this positive approach! Thank You also Mr. Zsolt Lokodi for appreciating Rekku in Bis-vet.
 

                                              PUPPIES born 10.7.2012

One more joyous family-happening this summer......
Our Lovely import-girl "Nappi", Honeytaste Kick Some Ass, delivered her first litter during the night (IS there even another time ?!?). Our little lady had to WORK to get her chunky monkeys out but did it like a trooper! The final count was 3 boys & 3 girls, all Black/white and VERY even. Proud daddy is also another of our young Swedish imports.... "Visa", Nallelandets Ambassador. More info about this litter will be provided shortly.

This show is a tradition for us. The venue is lovely and the judges are always interesting, Thanks Kokkola!

This year the Beardies were on in the morning so we got a brilliant idea of leaving the previous evening and sleeping in the show-tent We brought an inflatable mattress but a pump that was too small. Still at 2 a.m we were pumping and pumping.... then the mattress was half-full and we were too exhausted and had to stop and go to sleep. What a riot the night was.... As soon as one was turning, the other one was flying up, HaHa.
Oh well, live and learn
At the show we still had a marvellous day and for once a SUNNY one! Results below....

                                            PUPPIES born 24.6.2012


It was Midsummernight and "Mandy", Memorylane Praise My Name, decided to have a fest of her own.... She decided that NOW was the time to have her litter. The delivery moved on quite fast and soon there was 3 babies in the nursery. This was where it was supposed to stop, at least according to the sonogram.... but Mandy was still big as a balloon.... so, she proceeded to have 5 more babies, making the final count to 8!!! This is Mandys second litter and ofcourse she remembered what she was supposed to do. All is well with the newborns, we just admire the small wonders


The whole gang, 1 day young

For more info about the litter, Please do check out our Puppies 2 page!

Sunny saturday was exhanged for a really rainy sunday. The show was near to us but this was little consolation as the weather truly was awful
Thanks to the neverending rain, our car also got stuck in the mud and it was quite a hmm, %#*/%¤! project to get it out of there....
In the show we had had a change of judge but that was ok with us as Mr. Kraljic was a new aquaintance, which I always find interesting. Happy to say he also liked our gang

                                           KOTKA Int. Show 16.6.2012


This time our travels took us to Eastern Finland. It was a Hot day but fortunately we got a tent-place even if the venue was jam-packed. This show is on a sandy field and boy-oh-boy how dusty it was! We saved the pictures for after the show, going to a nearby park, which has wonderful flowers and made a lovely setting for pictures. I have actually been wanting for years to take pics there and now at last we could
Anyway, back to the results..... which were not too bad, eh?!

                                      TUURI All-breed Show 10.6.2012


Today I had the day completely off and was just lazying at home, one needs that too you know I was however gladly surprised by a text-message that some dogs had been at the Tuuri show. The word Tuuri means btw.Luck and that they did have.....
"Unski", Memorylane Superman Tonight took Best Male 2 with CAC and became FI CH!!! In Finland this is possible only after the dog has turned 2 years old (we have no Jun Ch either) and Unski had his Birthday just about 1 week ago so WELL DONE in achieving your title so soon!
The bitch CAC also went "close to home".... "Svennes", Typografens Netscape Navigator, daughter Glosscoats Valentine Rose, who is only at the beginning of her carreer, took it.
Many CONGRATULATIONS to both these lovely dogs!
Thank You judge Mrs. Paula Heikkinen-Lehkonen

  

                                     SALO All-breed Show 9.6.2012


Today we went to a show quite near, just a couple of hours driving back/forth. The judge was a new aquaintance and he was a nice fella. Only thing he didn´t like was Beardie-exhuberance.... With this I don´t mean mindless bouncing, but even a little bit of looking up, etc. Still, we had some nice results....

* "Casino", Memorylane Veni Vidi Vicing: Open Male Exc 1st
* "Jesse", CIB & MULTI CH M. The Holy Man:

                          TALLINN Estonian Winner Show 2.-3.6.2012


This weekend it was time to yet again travel abroad. Not very far though, Tallinn is the nearest place abroad we can go to. On this trip I was accompanied by Ronjas young owner Aino. She is one of these bohemic "natures children" and we had sooo much fun, BIG THANKS Aino!
Our trip started on friday-evening with the ferry from Helsinki. We spent the night on the ferry and got to Tallinn early the next morning. I had arranged that a very nice couple, Tiina & Rasmus, come to meet us as I was delivering a puppy to them. They already have "Roope", M. A Pirates Party, from us and now "Hoppu", M. Hip-Hop Don´t Stop, was joining them. What a joyous moment! After a nice chat and taking dogs for morning-pee, we proceeded to the show.
American Akita "Terra", Travistock Timeless, was in the ring already at 9 o´clock. Terra did wonderfully and thus she now finished her title EE JCH! She was not only the best junior but Also the Best Bitch, so BOS! Then she got titles EEW-12 & EEJW-12!!! AND, Crufts-qualification!!! YAYYY

Thanks to the judge, Mr. Chan Weng Woh, all the way from Malaysia. 


On the mooove....

After AA:s, we went to our hotel, which was a bit outside the downtown-area and qualified as a true ghetto-hotel, HaHa Fortunately the room was a nice size, had a hand-shower and guarded parking. There was also a lot of dog-people, so we figured to be safe. Then we prepared Beardies and also setterkid, Merlin, who I nearly left home.... With so many shows & entries going on, I had forgotten that he also was entered. Half an hour before I was to leave from home, I opened the show-envelope and Uuups, noticed that also Merlin was entered In the hurry & commotion, I ofcourse forgot his coat (needed to keep him warm And flatten the hair after grooming), so I had to improvise.... a fleece-blanket, my own hoodie and everything tied with electrical tape! OMG, what a sight! But it worked
On sunday English setters were on in the morning and junior males up first. We had a nice-size ring and a very particulate judge, Mrs Ludovica Salamon from Italy, who I heard is a Gordon setter breeder herself. "Merlin", Blue Baltic´s Rocks Off Your Sox, did a wonderful job and WON his class, so he got title EE JW-12 Later he also beat nearly all other males and went Best Male 2! His sister Goldie, also got the jun title and finished BOB-Jun & overall BOS! Many Many Congrats!!!
Beardies were on a bit later, so we had good time to prepare them for the ring. But, then the time ended as the breed started.... the judging was very late and so the ring-secretary was desperately trying to catch up. The result was completely chaotic! However, we did get really nice results alltogether.....

* "Leo", LT & LV JW-12, WCJW-12 S. Lion King: EE JW-12, BOB-Jun & Best Male 2
* "Jönssi", EEW-11 & EEJW-11 M. Sonata Arctica: Best Male 3 with res.CACIB
* "Nelli", Memorylane Reign Of Gold: EE JW-12, BOS-Jun & Best Bitch 2
* "Ronja", FI & LT CH, HeW-10 M. Honey To Knight:

                                          PUPPIES born 30.5.2012


In the night between 29.-30.5, "Moona", Memorylane Puz A Spell On U, was showing signs that tonight will be THE night. She was making her nest over and over and then came to lie beside me on the bed, grunting and panting. In the twilight hours (wonder why it always has to be at that time....), she started to push.
She did have to work a bit as we knew there was not a big litter on the way, which ofcourse meant that the individual puppies Would propably be quite big. And so they were.... 2 chunky boys were born in abt. 1,5h. Both were lively fellas and has an excellent zest for life. Just like we like it! This was Moonas first litter, but she immediately figured out what a mommy is supposed to do. So all well in the nursery


Moritz & Max 1 day old

                              WDS SALTZBURG AUSTRIA 18.5.2012


Finally it was time for the BIG Adventure!
On the evening of monday 14.5 we started our trip. First we drove a couple of hours to Turku, picked up Leena & setterboys and then continued to the ferry. Went overnight to Stockholm, Sweden. Then we drove through Sweden, took the ferry over to Denmark, drove through Denmark, took the ferry to Germany and still drove a few hours more to Hamburg. After abt 15h of driving, we arrived to our motel. Took care of the dogs and then some well-earned ZzzZz....
In the morning had a rude awakening as looking out over the idyllic landscape, there was a guy playing with himself, YUK!

We SO needed to get outta there. Again all-day driving. Dropping off Leena at her daughters house in Cham and arriving at midnight to our hotel in S-burg. All was closed and pitch-black and there was a ton of scary gargoyles all over the place. Finally I got a staff-member to open the door and even if they weren´t really happy, they gave us our room. Thank You! In the morning the place wasn´t scary at all, but rather idyllic, overlooking the city from the hillside. Well, never mind the VERY religious atmosphere with meditating people everywhere.... we really fit in well.... NOT! HaHa

This day was spent preparing & pre-preparing some of the dogs that were going in the ring in the following days and had a nice meal of Wienerschnizel. Actually it was the only thing on the menu we understood as we don´t speak Germand and the waitress was So grumpy.
On friday it was the first day of showing. We left the house really early and it prooved to be a wise decision.... To the huge Messezenter, there was only leading 2 really tiny roads and the traffic-jam was Massive! Fortunately we made it though. Leena almost didn´t and she had been forced to hop out of the car and run the last Kilometres!!! I can tell you, there was some Seriously Pissed people due to horrible traffic-arrangements

Setters were on this day and I was looking forward to showing Merlin & his mom, Lumo. Merlin can be pretty wild but he did behave nicely today and got EXC.


"Merlin", Blue Baltic´s Rocks Off Your Sox

 I also saw his litterbrother, Gulliver, who looked lovely. Unfortunately they didn´t place though. Still Congrats to their half-brother Harry, who took the JW-title! Then the Gordons went on top of the English Setters, so I was asked to show Leenas Willis as his handler was tied up with her own dog. We had a nice connection and I was proud to take 1st in Ch-class with him! 

 
"Willis", Blue Baltic´s Face Maker
(c)Jeena Kantosalo

Our own girl, Lumo, hadn´t been shown for 1 year due to maternal duties and the wait for new coat. Now she was making her re-entry to the ring and it felt really great to show her, she was responding so nicely to everything and moving like a feather. Lumo took third in open bitches


3rd "Lumo" WW-10 & Multi W Blue Baltic´s Valse Lyrique & the 2nd bitch in open

Later in the day, Jeena showed Lumo & Willis in brace in the big ring and they looked really awesome! Too bad we don´t have brace in Finland....
The judge for English Setters was a new aquaintance for me, Mrs. Jelka Simcic.


Final line-up....
BOB, judge, BOB-Jun (Merlins half-brother) & Best Bitch

After we left the show, it was time for some more Wienerschnizel and then preparing the Beardies. It took foreeeveeer and this day seemed to never end but it did and finally some ZzzZzzzzz.....

 

                             WDS SALTZBURG AUSTRIA 19.5.2012


On saturday we again woke up at the crack of dawn as we couldn´t risk beeing late for the show because of the traffic. Today it was time for Beardies & American Akitas. I had 5! Beardies in the ring and 1 AA. Both breeds on at the same time and in completely different halls ofcourse! I still had a romantic idea that I would manage somehow :D I was fortunate to have help from Jeena, Hilde & Nea, who are very nice junior handler girls from Finland. But unfortunately they couldn´t stay the entire time as ofcourse they had their own competition to attend to also.
Anyhow.... first up was Leo in junior males. He got "5th" with EXC. Then was Rekku in veteran and he WON! So the title of World Veteran Winner -12 came to him, YIPPEE!!!


"Rekku", fresh WVW-12,CIB & MULTI CH M. Hold On Tight, in the main ring ♥

Then Molli went to junior bitches and she got an EXC 3rd!


The winner,?, 2nd, ?,?,? & the 3rd, our "Molli", Sandauri Let´s Go Go Go
(c)Ildikó Muzslai

The reason why classes were in that order, was that puppies, juniors & veterans were judged by Mrs. Rita Skadike-Kadina from Latvia and the rest by Mr. Ronnie Irving from GB.
When the judge changed and the intermediate males began, I scooted over to the AA ring. Lo and behold, that judge had been quick and was already about to choose best male. So, running back across 3 huge halls to the Beardie-ring, grabbing Terra and running back. 18 AA junior bitches entered the ring. Then we were standing there and standing and staaanding.... the judge had gone on a break I was worried about the Beardie-rings progress as I had no way of knowing what happened there. Finally the AA-judge came back and started the bitch-judging. Terra was about in the middle and as soon as she was done with the individual part, I left her in the hands of an aquaintance, Thanks Masa! and ran back to Beardies. On the way there, I bumped into a friend, Karri, who I begged to take care of Terra until I returned. Well, I couldn´t, as the ch males had just started in Beardies! Talk about beeing in a HURRY! Still managed to calm myself and took Diesel in the ring. He showed very nicely, but only got EXC. Karri then returned with Terra, who hadn´t gotten placed either. Blaah. Now we had a bit of a brake as the last of our Beardies attending the ring was Liinu, in ch class. I wasn´t expecting to get anything with her as unfortunately she had dropped her coat before the show. I had actually considered leaving her home but then we couldn´t have attended any couple- or breeding-classes at all. So I opted to bring her after all. As expected, she only got EXC in ch class but was showing really nicely. Liinu has a ton of attitude and So enjoys to be in the ring! This she got to show later in the afternoon as we took part in the extra competitions.

All braces and all breeders-classes went into the big ring. I think our dogs and team looked wonderful and I was proud to be there. From a Huge amount of breeders, we were shortlisted! YAY, what a thrill!!! Thanks judge, Mr. Jörgen Hindse from Denmark

THANKS also girls, Hilde & Jeena, for Awesome presentation!!!

                                        World Club Show 20.5.2012


One more very early wake-up today......
The hotel had left us sandwitches in their fridge every morning and so we got a nice start of the day again. I had also got a routine of driving down 5km on the Very Steep mountainside road, which was quite scary at first.
Today I first took Jeena & Lumo to the Messezentrum as they had junior handling there and then I rushed to the other side of the city, to Anif castlegrounds for the Specialities; one for British Herdingdogs & one for the AA:s.

As I arrived, there was ofcourse no official place to unpack the car but I asked if I could do it near the gate as I was alone with 6! dogs and a ton of stuff. Yes, I was allowed to do so. So then begun the neverending dragging..... ofcourse our ring was the most farthest one from the entrance. I was running 3 times back/forth and the neighboring Border Colliepeople had a lot of fun watching my morning-aerobics Suddenly I realised that I had dropped the pouch with the dogs papers on one of my runs and so I started to search.... they were Nowhere! Panic! I ran to the information-desk (you guessed it, on the other side of the fairgrounds!) and fortunately some nice person had returned them there. Boy, was I Happy! Then on to park the car.... but what now, 2 police-officers were standing next to it. The man who had given me permission to unload, had called the police. Thanks a Lot! Was fortunately not fined as I immediately went to park at the official parkingplace. Then som MORE running. To get the numbers for the dogs from the ring.... Well, were our numbers there? Ofcourse not. Aaand back to the information-desk again.
I´m going to be a marathon superstar after this for sure! 
Now there was not much time to the start of the Beardie-ring. So quickly back to the ring and starting to brush the dogs. At this point Mrs. Petra Bonny was Super Kind to offer her help with preparing & showing the dogs, I cannot THANK YOU enough!!!

I also want to THANK Chilis owner for agreeing to show Akitagirl, Terra!
Leo was first up and also ended up First! So he can now be titled World Club Junior Winner-12, YAY! Next in the ring was Diesel in ch males and he Also won! Later he did us Very Proud by going BEST MALE!!!


Happy Winners.... Diesel & me
(c)Petra Bonny

So D can now be titled World Club Winner-12 Well, Rekku did Not want to be outdone by the other boys and thus he won Veteran males! WOW, I was extatic!!! Rekku got the title World Club Veteran Winner-12. At this point I didn´t dare to show the next dog as I felt I would have jinxed our chances after getting awarded so much in males. So a quick decision was made and Petra showed Molli in junior bitches. And.... they WON! OMG, how unreal!!! Later Molli also went BEST IN SHOW 1 Junior at the combined Herding breeds finals


Molli with her new friend Petra

Last but not least was Liinu in ch bitches. Well, our "baldie" didn´t get placed but that was quite ok ;o) She however took part in our breedersclass, which finished BEST IN SHOW 1!!! WAOUUUH, just SUPER-AMAZING day!!! 
THANK YOU Breeder-judge, Mrs Sue Nicholls-Ward from GB (kennel Bumbleridge)

But were the adventures over for today....? Oh no. 
Went to pack the car with Jeena (who had arrived by taxi a while ago) and didn´t notice anything at first glance. Then Jeena asked the unthinkable.... where is Merlin? I had left our setterboy and visitor Tomy in the car for the day. It had been in the shadow with backdoors open, but crate-latches closed. Well, the latches were still closed so from that we knew that Merlin hadn´t broked out of the car on his own. Somebody had let him out! Complete Panic!!! My mind was racing and I thought we had lost our boy for good! One more time running to the information-desk.... and who was standing there with a lady feeding him bread....
Merlin! THANK GOD!!!

 
Our setup. Welded & latched....

He had been found on the parking-lot, running around and a man had taken him to the info. Later in Finland I got to know it was actually a fellow-Finn who had captured Merlin as our boy had wandered into their trailer and strated eating their food! Just this once I have to be happy that he is such a pig THANK YOU Jarmo Hilpinen for rescuing Merlin!!! Still, I´m quite convinced that the one letting him out of the car, was trying to steal our boy as a dog don´t close latches behind him..... Fortunately Merlin is a Wild one and has just jumped head-first past the arms of his thief. And even more fortunate that he by a miracle found his way back to us!
BIG SIGH of relief!!!

Well, NOW surely there was no more adventures for the day....? Oh yes, one more.
The day before, we had taken on a visitor, adult Bordercollie Tomy, who was sold to my friend Saana in Finland. Tomys Hungarian breeder had given him to us for 1 day and now he was supposed to get a ride home by some Leonberger-people.

It had been agreed that they would collect Tomy from the speciality-fairgrounds before starting their way home. I called them and got to speak to a VERY RUDE woman who announced that They would not pick up anything anywhere and I should bring the dog to them! They were at the Messezentrum so I should go there. I was completely exhausted so I thought fine, I´ll take Jeena there to watch BIS-competitions and bring Tomy at the same time. But then suddenly the plan changed again.... now these people had left to some gas-station outside Salzburg and Tomy was to be delivered there. What the hell??? What gas-station? Where? I´m sure there is a LOT of gas-stations around the city. I wasn´t given an address but only the name of the station. So then we drove and drove and drove to find this place. Asked for directions from local people (who also didn´t know very well where the station was situated) and drove some more. I tried to call the Leonberger people but no answer. About 40min later we were finally at the gas-station. Walked around the parking lot and checked every car. The people were not there! WTF??!!! At the same time Saana called that she had gotten a message that the people had left! Seriously? I can say that at that point I was beyond Pissed! If you agree to do a favour for someone AND get paid to do so, you cannot just blow them off on a whim! What was I now supposed to do with Tomy.... We already had our car jam-packed as there was going to be 3 people & 10 dogs on the way home. But I couldn´t tie Tomy to a tree and say So long either. Saana was panicing in Finland also. I then had to make the quick decision to take Tomy with us. We were just going to have to find some space for him. After sleeping on it, I asked Leena in Cham to go to the garden-store to pick up some metal fence material. We then built a space on top of our stuff and between the roof to hold Tomy for the trip. Fortunately he was an easy traveller and propably just thought it was fun. So now I can SO recommend Citroen Jumpy as a Very Spacious Van!

 
Yes, It IS Tomy relaxing upside down in his little nest below the roof :D

The rest of the trip went nearly normally.... Ok, we missed our ferry from Stockholm as on the way there was a huge lorry-accident but have to be happy it didn´t involve us. We slept that night near the harbour in the car and were allowed to change to the next ferry over, Pheew. Just as well as I do think my quota for surprises was filled for now! We arrived safely home late in the night on 23.5.

This was a looong story but I wanted to share. As now you get an idea what is meant by Ninas adventure-travels.... I have no idea why stuff tend to happen to me but I can tell you, it has been a few roller-coaster rides during the years.
Fortunately we can laugh about this trip already

 
THANKS girls, Leena w setters & especially JEENA for an unforgettable time

Today I made a quick visit to see ”Nelli”, Memorylane Reign Of Gold, at the puppyshow. We ended up in the ring together for the first time and still have to practice our co-operation but this was a start

Nelli won her class and was Best Bitch 2 with Honorary Prize and a lovely critique.
I was myself also very pleased with her development for her age.
Thanks Lotta for taking so well care of Nelli!
Judging was done by Mrs Jaana Hartus, who was very nice with the puppies,

                      LOHJA Group Specialty 12.2.2012


Went today with the young setter to make his debute in the Junior class......  "Merlin", Blue Baltic´s Rocks Off Your Sox, started the day by making daddy-Jouni chase him in the fields as he managed to sneak his head out of the lead just when Jouni was going to put him in the car. OMG, what a Sight they must have been!
Well then, what happened at the show.....? Merlin behaved nicely (ok, tried to kiss the judge to death) and I was very happy about that. We try to take it calmly now in the beginning and then pick up some speed as it is possible without bouncing out of ones pants. As can be seen below, it worked well for us.

 

Merlin was however still at 9 months too raw for the judge and so he only had a Very Good day. His sister Goldi though, went BB 3 with her first CC! Gotta love her as she is the spitting image of their mom, Lumo Many Congrats!
Judging was Mr. Hans Lehtinen

         Champion Of Champions & Veteran Of Veterans 11.2.12

There was 70 champions and 41 veterans entered. In the Ch of Ch, "Rekku", CIB & MULTI Ch Memorylane Hold On Tight, was the only Beardie to get an invitation. Pic of him on the stage below.

 And in the Vet of Vet, "Pinni", CIB & MULTI Ch Memorylane One Way Riot, was also the only Beardie to be invited. Needless to say, we were very proud
We had a lovely evening with good food, good friends and LOTS of LAUGHS!
Thanks to you ALL

Both pictures were taken with our own camera so sorry that the quality isn´t the best. Lights and shadows were a bit challenging and no matter what setting, some part is either shady or blurry or both. But the spirit is the most important thing, don´t ya think?!

                                             HEALTH EXAMS.....

                     2 x TARTU Int. Show 5.-6.11.2011

Last weekend we went to Estonia for some new adventures...
Almost didn´t make it there, as I realized the night
before that the ferry-company had somehow canceled our reservations...PANIC! And ofcourse there was no more trips available at that point on any other ferry-companies either. In the morning I called Viking Line and fortunately a Very Kind and apologetic manager was able to fix everything.
So the trip was ON :o)
Here is how we did....
