A nice email from Ronnie Watt, South Africa - from the owner of "Adam", Linum Precious Ringo:

"Adam's show season has ended for this year. In less than 7 months of his first show year, he was awarded 13 BOB, 8 RBOB, 21 CC points, 15 Group placings (including 5 times best in Puppy Group) and 3 Reserve Best Puppy In Show. That's not bad at all for a 15 month old dog! In fact, I believe he has had a fantastic few months in the show ring! My very special thanks to Mari Langinkoski for sending me such a great boy. And very special thanks also to Belinda Rorke-Tarr for being such a professional handler!"

Thank you, Ronnie and Belinda! You are doing a fabulous job there.

A busy show weekend. I travelled myself to Sweden with "Maija", Ch. Linum Cashmere Mafia, while my friends showed our other dogs at the Skye Terrier Club of Finland's Specialty Show in Lohja.

In Sweden "Maija" earned BOB on both of the days: on Saturday at the Eskilstuna Int Show (judge Siv Jernhake, Sweden) and on Sunday at the Swedish Winner 2011 Show in Norrköping (judge Annika Ulltweit-Moe, Sweden). She got two new titles: SE CH and SEW-11.

At the Specialty Show our champion bitches did really well under the judge Kari Järvinen, Finland. Ch. Linum La Gioconda placed 2nd and her sister Ch. Linum Venus de Milo 3rd in a tough competition of nine champion bitches. "Adalia" ended up also as BEST BITCH-3. Our juniors Linum Lord Voldemort and Linum Spirit of Pandora placed 2nd in their classes. These four dogs earned also BOB-BREEDER title to kennel Linum! A huge THANK YOU to my friends. You are awesome.
