Celje double CACIB show, 19-20.04.2008, Slovenia

I am still waiting for the nice photographs from the show but they just don't want to arrive :-) So you have to be satisfied with all the blurry pictures my friend was taking :-)

On the photo she is with another friend of mine, professional handler and groomer. Danka looks very different than in my hands :-) Some like it more, some less, decide for yourself which Danka you prefer :-)

Anyway, I am proud to announce that Danka was CAC, CACIB,… Continue

There were 4 parts, 1. collecting balls with no "seeing help" from the owner (see photos), 2. make the dog step into the triangles by giving orders from outside the ring (see photos), 3. agility for beginners… Continue

Babesiosis... again...

She was not a setter but very close to my heart...

She was a sweetie, kind to dogs and people - her owner, Agi raised her like this. She had a very happy and healthy long life but was not able to fight against her recent sickness any longer. Sleep well my black… Continue
