All good things come to an end – for a short while… We have finished the first leg of our trip up here in Kuopio, Finland. The result of the third day was,
KAFFOGO AGYAG CAC and RES.CACIB – second place overall.
I am proud of my girl. She has impressed all three of the judges with her conformation as well as her outstanding disposition. We move on to Helsinki with three excellent evaluations earned from FCI judges from three different countries. The consistency of of last year’s evaluation of Kaffogo Agyag during the Hungarian World Dog Show week and the current descriptions here in Finland are very reassuring. Of course, the Lion share of our success goes to Anna Varadi of Kaffogo Kennel in Hungary and Helena Matilla of Karvakorvan Kennel in Finland the two breeders where Agyag comes from.
We’ve been having a super time. People are welcoming, open and helpful. The dog show was well organized with plenty of information provided for everyone to easily get around. Last night’s party was a great finishing touch of the Kuopio trip. Special thanks to Marianne, Jyrki, Jukka and Heidi Forsti of Fifikus Kennel and all their friends, making me feel so comfortable. The dinner was a big plate of Paella with fresh Salmon. It was a delicious treat and the wine selection was also outstanding. By the way there was no tango, so I still have to catch it somewhere during the rest of my trip.
Today, we are moving down south to Helsinki, where soon I will hook up with Stacy Lehman and Taru Parvin for a cruise trip to Stockholm, Sweden. (The Scandinavian version of Ladies’ Night Out.) before the WDS.
In the same time, Kaffogo Agyag, is inpatiently waiting to check her messages posted on the big city fire hydrants, the “Canine Renal Bulletin.” Who knew that there has been a serious canine social media out there…?
