CACIB Padova (I) 22/01/12

Well, this year started really well, first with the Ljubljana shows, and now with Padova.

CACIB Padova - breed judge: Bortolotto Zambelli Paola (I); JBIS judge: Griffa Bocca Adriana (I)
Bagrijana: exc4

Ca' Frosco Hiba: exc1, Best Junior Female, JBOS Ca' Frosco Hakon: exc1, Best Junior Male, JBOB, 3JBIS


Considering that:
1 - Hella hasn't been under the spotlight for a while, having closed very fast and with success her two
     Junior Championships (SLO & HR)
2 - today was a beautiful sunny day
I decided to ask my brother to make some stacked pictures. Unfortunately my brother is not a dog photographer, so he couldn't catch fully Hella's lovely structure.
Please take in consideration that Hella is shedding...

AVAILABLE in our friend's kennel: DONA ZUZIA (CZ)

I received news from my friend Zuzka Hejtikova, Kennel Dona Zuzia.
My friend managed to rescue two beautiful borzois, brother and sister from a bad situation. Actually the female is staying at Dona Zuzia Kennel, but the male is LOOKING FOR A LOVING HOME.

Name: TIMUR FI-IT DoB: 14/02/2009 Sire: JR Yoram Balsaja Achota Dam: Conie Balsaja Achota
Picture Pedigree on The Borzoi Files

Tim is a loving, playful boy with a sunny character. He is capable of walking on leash and is very open to people. Tim has complete dentition and correct bite, and - if you give him some time to recover - is promising for dog shows and dog sports. If you gain his confidence and trust, he will give you much in return. Whoever interested in giving Tim a forever loving home, showing him that life can still be joyful and pleasant, may contact Zuzka Hejtikova through her WEBSIT…

CACIB Ljubljana 14.01.2012

Saturday we arrived in Ljubljana, to attend a double show, CACIB in the morning and the 19th Sighthound Specialty, organized by the Slovenian Club for Sighthounds, in the evening.

Looking at the day as a whole I will say that it has been a very nice, and I had occasion to meet a lot of friends that I didn't see in a while.

The morning show was judged by Andreja Novak (Ninochka's Borzois)
Hiba achieved exc1, JCAC, Junior Winner, JBOS.

Her judgement critique: "15 months old, beautiful head and expression, correct bite, very good top line, chest still needs to develop, correct front and rear angulation, good feet, nice long tail, good mover coming and going and from side."

thank you very much to Nikola and Nina, the great potographers of for this excellent picture of Hiba's outstanding movement!!

Can't say I was so satisfied for the specialty show, but anyway it was a very nice day, and at the club show Borzois had a special prize offered by Ninochka&…

MEET US!! CACIB Ljubljana (SLO)

Ok, 2011 is over, but we're ready to start the new show year with enthusiasm! Unmissable date for us is the triple Ljubljana show. On Saturday there will be a CACIB + Special show, and Sunday another CACIB.

So I hope to meet many friends there, since entries for borzois are really big, considering the past years: 18 (10-8) for Saturday's CACIB, 23  (!!) for the Specialty Show and 13 (9+4) for Sunday's show.

So all that's left to say is good luck to all exhibitors and may the best one win!
