Kaffogo Agyag has won again today and based on the result of the two-day show, she has also become  “Junior Bitches Club Winner” of the Pumi Friends Association’s Hungaria Klub Show.

Dear Anna Varadi, it is so ironic that I’ve been standing here in the limelight with our Golden Girl, Kaffogo Agyag in the past two weeks, when in reality she is the creation of your two decades of successful breeding program. (…the only thing I really do is to feed her… :-) )

I want you to know that I am greatful for the trust that you put in me to raise Agyag to success.

It has been a dream come through… This unbelievable successful two weeks  obligates me to actively support the Hungarian Pumi Club of America to promote Judges education in the United States.  It should become an imperative for the Club that judges are taught to learn to recognize and promote the correct standard of the Pumi.  Our geographical isolation should not be an obstacle for maintaining the highest quality and standard in conformation, behavior and subsequently in breeding.

Although, there is an official change in leadership for the breed that is currently taking place in

Hungary these days, this shall not be an excuse for the previous generation of leaders to step aside.  It is your responsibility and duty to provide your expertise and experience for the continuation of the improvement of this wonderful breed.

Tamara and György Länger, thank you for your support during the last two weeks. I hope that you will also support and contribute to an open, honest an impartial collaboration for the further improvement and preservation of the Pumi.  Your 20+ years of history and experience with the breed is an invaluable tool that cannot be ignored.

Things are going well – more than well… today, Kaffogo Agyag has become the “Junior World Cup Winner of Hungarian National Breeds” in the morning and she has also won back to back  the very first Raisits Cup 2013, as the “Hungarian Junior Winner.”  I am speechless, and whatever tomorrow, the day of the official WDS 2013 brings, ANNA VARADI of Kaffogo Kennel, thank you for selecting me Agyag. I would really like to know what you have been cooking in your Pumi Kitchen for the future…

"does this Junior World Cup Winner thing in the Conformation ring today compensates for my  silly behavior in the herding arena yesterday...?"

“Mom, does this performance in the Conformation ring today compensates for my silly behavior in the herding arena yesterday…?”

Felallo Fulu Fruska has earned “Excellent” in the Open Bitches Class of the Hungarian National Breeds competition and received a “NJ,” (Very Good) evaluation at the Raisits Cup 2013.

Thursday I went to visit Anna Varadi, Kaffogo Agyag’s breeder in Alsopahok at the western tip of Lake Balaton. Agyag and Fruska was thrilled to play and run in the countryside with Anna’s dog after their high-rise building experience at my sister’s home in Buda.

While on the road, I’ve also visited Lovasz Gyorgyne in Kapolnasnyek an important figure in the history of the Pumi in Hungary.  It was an interesting experience to leap back in time and listening to old stories of the breed.

Once back in Budapest, in the evening, my sister’s family took me to a Palinka Festival to Erzsebet-ter on the Pest side of the city – a very Hungarian way to finish a great day – I may add…  The evening brought back old memories from the
