Cedarina Aspic Soup , Mervi's younger dog, was second best female and got cac. The older dog, Xarna van het Goralenhof, besides that she was BOB, was also BIS 3 ja BIS 2 VETERAN

    In Saturday it was a show for all breeds in Tuusula, Finland. There was two Flinkbein dogs. Atut was in juniorclass and got once again a splendid criticism, but his behaviour dropped the testimonial. Instead Swietny appeared with the safety, that only the experience can give, and she was BOB, BEST OF BREED. In addition to this, she got also the placement in the big ring, she was second in the shepherd group GROUP 2.

    At the same time, in Saturday 2.7, we went to Pärnu, Estonia .
    Our journey started with a wery bad luck, as we had problems with our car, and had to leave it to Finland. Fortunately we got the drive to Pärny with a Tiger's Chaos Whippets breeder, Sari Ikäheimo.
    But the bad luck continued. When we got to Pärnu, we had only 18 minutes to get to the ring. And of course, when Milou come out of the car, he steps directly to the ditch, and his paws get covered with black ooze. So, directly to the toilet to wash up his paws - without any soap. But of course it didn't help a great deal. Fortunately these grey paws didn't have effect to the judgement, as FLINKBEIN ZUPELNY SUKCES was BOB, and got the both the Estonian cac and CACIB.
    During that day we got also a pouring rain, thunderstorm and hailstorm…….. and our vice cloths were in the car
    I want also thank to Helena Mattila, the pumi-breeder, of the irreplaceable help during our journey.

    But this was only a half of all the troubles of this Satyrday. From Sweden, we got a message, that Tintti had brakes broken in her car. And it was weekend and nobady working in the repair workshop.
    On the next day, in Sunday, there was an international show in Piteå, and the dogs were booked in that show also.Tintti and Mervi stayed in the camping place, at a 30 km distance from the showplace, and they couldn't use theri car. Also they got some help form the Whippet-owners, who were going to another show. They started so early, that they could drop Tintti and Mervi to Piteå.

    In Sunday 3.7 it was quite opposite weather, hectic, hot, feeble
    Fortunately the success compensate all the troubles, as FLINKBEIN SREBRO was BOB - BEST OF BREED, and got the last CACIB and become also the INTERNATIONAL CHAMPION. Xarna van het Goralenhof was BOO and Cedarina Aspic Soup second best female, and got the cac.

    In Finland, in the show in Hyvinkää, Flinkbein Swietny was BOB - BEST OF BREED, and her father, Flinkbein Kompletny-Pon, was BOO - the BEST OF OPPISITE. Pompula was also the BOB VETERAN. Flinkbein Wolec was THE SECOND BEST MALE, and Flinkbein Udany the victor in open class.

    Finally, in the end of this hectic day, happened something quite mighty !!! FLINKBEIN SWIETNY was GROUP 2 the third time one after another. Besides this FLINKBEIN KOMPLETNY-PON was in the veteran group BEST IN SHOW 4 VETERAN and the FLINKBEIN BREEDERGROUP was BEST IN SHOW 4 BREEDERGROUP .

    In the very end, the weekend balance was fairly positive.

    Kingi become, in Sweden, both SWEDISH and INTERNATIONAL CHAMPION

    Milou was BOB in Estonia, and got his first foreign CACIB
