28.04.2018 We drove to Latvia again to take part in the Hunting Dog Club Special Show for FCI VII & 0 groups. The judge invited was Mr. Tony Rainey (Ireland) and the English setter s present was 9. Bournefield New Dawn "Vicky", presented in open class, received the position of excellent 1, CC, best bitch 2.
But our sweet boy Bournehouse Stormy Weather "Branson" was awarded as excellent 1, CAC, Best male 1, BOB. Unfortunately we were not placed at the best of group competition this time.
If I will get the Estonian Champion also confirmed to Vicky, we can go to attend Crufts with her in the future - I am so glad about that!
19.03.2018 A weekend spent in Latvia again - this time in Riga. We attended two International Dogshows there with the entry of 15 English setters at both of the days.
17.03.2018, the judge was Mr. Rui Oliveira (Portugal). Our show duo did extremely well receiving the both major prizes and left the other English setter entries far behind. Bournehouse Stormy Weather "Branson": junior class excellent 1/2, junCAC, PP, best male 1, BOS; Bournefield New Dawn "Vicky": open class excellent 1/3, CC, CAC, CACIB, BOB, BIG4.
At the FCI Group VII competition Vicky was chosen from 14 entries of different gundogs to be the 4-th most beautiful one - I am so proud of our little girl!
Branson finished his junior champion titles of all the Baltic countries and Vicky received her last CAC from Latvia which is needed for champion titles of all the Baltics.
18.03.2018 - The days are not alike: as I had also entered to the show at Sunday with the judge from Italy, Salvatore Tripoli, we decided to take part in this show also. But of course, the American type of English setters were prevailing this day, so the judge praised our dogs with excellent, but placed Branson and Vicky to be at the last positions. How the days differ indeed! But we could start our way back towards Estonia earlier and were home already at daylight time.
18.02.2018 We made a quick trip to Latvia to take part in "Valmiera's Winner 2018" National Dog Show there.
The English setter entry was a pity 3 for the judge from Belgium: Norman Deschuymere, but our show duo Branson and Vicky managed to receive lovely results: Bournehouse Stormy Weather "Branson" - junior class "excellent" 1, jun CAC, BOBjun, BOB, "Valmiera's Junior Winner 2018". Bournefield New Dawn "Vicky" - open class "excellent" 1, CAC, BOS, "Valmiera's Winner 2018".
With this show Branson also finished the Latvian Junior Championship and now, after confirmation, can also obtain the Baltic Junior Champion title.
Bournehouse Stormy Weather "Branson"
I also got the confirmation about Branson's EST JCH title. Our young boy got his very first show champion title!
I got the confirmation of Bournehouse Stormy Weather "Branson's" Hip Dysplasia test, that this boy is healthy and can run around as much as he wishes. The official result is B/B and the elbows are also healthy: 0/0.
03.01.2018 The year 2017 ended so quickly and full of all kinds of work and leisure events, that I had no time to update my homepage news during December. Now I have made it all update, all except the photos from our Mexican trip, which I try to sort out in a few days.
The 2017 was a lovely year full of action, fun and speed, I hope and feel that the year 2018 will follow with the same amount of action.
