10 December, Finnish Winner Show, Helsinki.
Today Mr Espen Engh, Norway, judged the 31 entered PHs. We were especially happy since his Best Of Breed turned out to be our 
Ikaros/Plupp, and even more so, as Espen was very excited over Plupp. 

His critique was a oneliner to dream of, but reality today, as he wrote: "An exceptional dog. They don't come any better than this." Also to much joy for us was the fact that Best Bitch 2nd, with CC and reserve CACIB, (which will turn into CACIB eventually) was our wild child who's finally getting serious: Ch Farao Anubis Nemesis Divina, 
"Blondie", only beaten by Finland's Top PH last year. Blondie with this also gained her Finnish Championship! 
Her critique: "Strong well constructed bitch, stands very well on her feet, could be a little more refined, strong classical head, very good ears. Strong neck. Plenty of angulation both ends. Deep capacious, well proportioned body. Excellent legs and feet. Excellent coat and colour. Very sound coming and going, moves with purpose and drive from the side." 
Plupp's Finnish son Northgate's Burning Sky "Jazz", a very handsome young man, was BOB puppy! Pictures from the show, coming.

29 October, Midland Counties, UK.
I got the good news from Christine Dawson and Marie Richmond that we did very well in UK today, as Best Of Breed & Dog CC (his second, only one more to go now!) went to 
Farao Anubis Naqada Zephyr "Zilo". BOS & Bitch CC went to Plupp's 9 months young daughter, Lyncris I'll Follow The Sun "Eco", her brother won his class, and 2nd in Open Bitch was "Leela" Farao Anubis Qahira. A Pi-daughter was Crufts qualified. Judge was Nigel Blackstock, Ardvreck PH & Beagles. This was fun, many congratulations to all the owners! (pictures, anyone?)

We got Russian visitors at this show, as our good friends with PHs from Moscow came over for this show, it was great to see you Masha, we had great fun, wish we met at more shows! Pi is now reunited with all his PH friends at home after 7 months in Russia which gave him a whole bunch of Champion titles from which I'm especially proud of his Russian and International ones. He also left a very good looking litter of 11 pups as a new contribute to Russia's PH breeding, which I guess almost doubled with this:-) Welcome home Pi! And many thanks to Masha Evteeva who has been Pi's mother during his stay in Moskva! Pictures below and above.
