MERRY CHRISTMAS - 21.12.2006

And check out the lovely greetings we have received...

HABI'S LAST JUNIOR SHOW - 10.12.2006

Habi is a big girl already and the time has come to our last junior show. This was our club show for group 6 and judge was Kornelija Butrimova from Lithuania. Breed entry 9. Habi closed her junor class show-carrier very nice by winning her class, winning champion class female and becoming BB1 and also winning the best male - with this becoming BOB!!! I had a wonderful feeling with so many people clapping hands as we passed by - this was so nice! And Habi concluded her day with BIG-5 ;)

And this was also Habi's little relative Malozi Juburu first show - he was very unsure what to do in that funny place and was not very happy on my idea of handling him, but we survived! Handsome Juburu was BOB puppy and also BIS-3 puppy! Congratulations to his owners and I hope this is just the beginning and more training and experience will make him a show fan soon ;)

We had a wonderful time and it is always a pleasure to take part of those well organised and friendly group shows. And thank you for the nice congratulations in the catalog ;)

Pictures here...   And here pictures from the show taken by Irena - www.wetdog.lv - thank you so much!

Meanwhile at the Helsinki Winner show Habi's brother Sisu won the male junior class and the lovely Gimli became BOB and BIG-2... And they have so many amazing wins there, that you need to check Malozi page yourself !

HABI BIS JUNIOR AT WORLD DOG SHOW 2006 - 10.11.2006

My precious darling Habi has done something amazing...
I can't really believe this, but my Habi won the show of the shows - THE WORLD DOG SHOW 2006 where Malozi Habiba became -  

BEST JUNIOR IN SHOW - BIS 1

World Junior Winner 2006

Best of Breed Junior

New Junior Champion of Poland & qualified for CRUFTS 2007

I will need very much time to believe this is true... 266 Ridgebacks were entered in the World Dog Show in Poznan, Poland. In the junior class the entry was also huge - 24 junior girls competed for the prestigious JWW`06 title and Habi was the one winning them all! And then winning also the junior male and becoming BOB Junior... At the big finals Habi was placed BIS1 Junior and this all at the World Winner show! You must agree - this is more than a dog owner can ever dream in the deepest dreams...

Million thanks to Habi's wonderful breeder and handler Tuija! No words can express how happy and proud I am and how much you deserve this! Malozi is World wide known for breeding the BEST RIDGEBACKS EVER!!!! I'm so grateful I am part of your wonderful team! You are the best and I'm so happy the whole world knows it :)

Habi is safe back home again and enjoys peaceful evenings by the fireplace and on her sofa... Many thanks to Dzintra and Ieva for taking such a good care of my girl for the whole trip! And thanks for all the wonderful words and congratulations - I knew we have many friends out there ;)
