It’s been a busy couple of week here and the blog has not been updated for a while. To bring the blog up to speed I have published a post retroactively about a nice Dayhike to Pahtajärvi that we went on during our brief holiday in Lapland this month.
Last weekend Wilder took part in his first official event at the Arctic Circle Dog Show in Överkalix. This national show is situated about 259 km (160 miles) to the north of us but is actually one of the shows that are closest to where we live. Since we have very few shows in northern Sweden during winter, we try to grab every chance we have for ring training during summer. The judge at this event was Erna-Britt Nordin who awarded Wilder a 1st, but without HP this time, as she felt that his head needs to mature a bit. Overall the critique was very nice and she was very pleased with his temperament.
So far, Wilder seems to enjoy showing and is happy and alert in the ring,
Standing for the exam – there’s not much coat on Wilder at the moment.
…on the move.
BOB at the Arctic Circle Dog Show, and Best in Group-4, was FI MVA Neatut Kadluk, aka “Jyry”, who is a son of our boy Thunder. Jyry performed beautifully in the ring with his breeder Anne Korhonen and seems to have exactly the same sweet personality as his daddy. In fact, they even share the same name; kadluk means thunder in one of the Inuit languages.
Jyry, who is now also a Swedish Champion, showed off his balanced movements in the group final.
BIG congratulations to his owners Anne Korhonen and Jouku Mikkonen!!
