Dutch Clubmatch 2009

The first reason for me to come to Holland this time was to participate with Qhila at the Dutch specialty and surprise her breeder. If happened that Qhila and Denyah got in season so i just took the opportunity and mated them.
The Dutch specialty was very nice, in a nice place and very well organized. The judgements were divided in 3 rings

The Club had a stand with some merchandising products with shelties

Unfortunatly i do not have a picture with me showing a dog, because my dear friend Jaco though that it was not important so he just took from the dogs. Hopefully i will get one from someone else. Taking the advices of the Dark Side 1 (Kim Ashton) and the special request made by the Dark Side 2 (Marcella ) i must say i was the most TRE CHIQ handler at the special to the point of getting some very nice comments on my ring presence :)
This one is for you KIM & MARCELLA

So not only i was well dressed, but i showed a 100 % dark side dog for Marcella's friend. She is a beautifull bitch and Barbara , the judge that told us in the lecture not to use American dogs, gave her 3rd in her class AhAhAhAhAh !!! It was a very competitve Junior class .
Her name is: SHELLOVE TAKE ME TO THE ROCKS (Goodtimes Blazin' Hot Moments x Leigh-Hi's On The Rocks)

Then it was time to show Qhila that was judge by Miss L.J. Pettitt. There were 2 females at champion class and they could not be more diferent in type, as you can see on the pic. Qhila got second but she had a nice report apart from the size issue ( The Evil Side was to obvious ahahahahah)
Qhila's report:
Blue merle 2 years. Good colour with well broken markings. Sufficient angulations with good reach of neck and length of body. Prefer more refinement in head. Moved very well with good drive. Would prefer a little smaller in size. 2 EXCELLENT
and the one that got first: KAMP. TWINKLE 'T WIJNMEER

The competition :

It was very nice to see Qhila's breeder again, Mayke. Always so nice and friendly. Photobucket
And it is ALWAYS ALWAYS a pleasure to see one of the most sweet persons in the sheltie world , MARION !!!!! She is Miró's breeder.

This is the BEST MALE IN SHOW - EMMAVIEW FIRECRACKER Photobucket
The BIS, the female - NICK-NACK FROM MARMOREA'S SHELTERPhotobucket
After the show and the speach about shelties we got together for dinner and some drinks. Here is Marcella with her evil look from the dark side, a friend from Bianca, Bianca, Jacco and me :) Photobucket
In Holland dogs can go inside most of the places, so i had to take mine and here i am with Marcella thinking of an evil plane to take the dark side to power !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It was a very nice day, with many friends and a fantastic atmosphere overall :)

The dark side

A few days ago I posted a comment on this same space regarding the presentation that was held after the Dutch Sheltie specialty 2009 about the standard of the shetland sheepdog.
I have never thought that such a post would cause so much fuss, but apparently where there is smoke there is fire.
In respect to my friends in Holland I took the post out because I do not want them to be involved in something that it is MY OPINION and has nothing to do with them, although I will not erase the comments made and the post itself in consideration to those who took the time to post.
Anyway I would like to say that when one does not want to be criticised, first should not held public conferences and second should not be the first to criticise.
I keep my opinion that the seminar was extremely tendentious and conducted to degrade the shelties bred in America. I am sure that the American breeders would be extremely offended to see the pic of their dogs used to say bad things about them.I would like everyone to think about that ....I would not give permition to use pic of my dogs for someone to do that, American breeders do ?!?!
Since I think my friend Marcella is better putting thoughts into words I would redirect you to her blog where she expresses exactly what I think about the never ending discussion about the "American shelties" - http://dawnville-shelties.blogspot.com/2009/10/everlasting-discussion.html

Qhila was mated !!!!

Weekends

Life is to be lived and enjoyed to the limit of our capacity.
We try to do so, having fun with our family, dogs and friends. As Isabela says "Papi i am always so tired on Monday after our weekends, but it is so fun ..."
I love my weekends and i must say i work the all week thinking about those 2 fantastic days that i will spend with all that i love.
This sunday we had a particularly busy day and on top of it all a nice surprise.
After the horse back riding lessons in the morning we went to have lunch by the beach at the Oeiras marina, it was such a great day, a friend of us showed up and invied us to go for a boat ride with him and off we went just before a birthday party we had to attend late in the afternoon.
Were in Europe can a someone go for a boat ride in October with lots of sun a great weather overviewing a wonderful city ???!!!! Lisbon of course. Since it was a surprise i did not had my camera with me so the pic were taken with the cell phone.
Enjoy :)
