NKK international dog show in Harstad October 2014

Vida and I got back from Harstad Sunday evening after a lovely weekend in one of my favorite towns. It is always nice to meet friends and their Siberians at these shows, and to make new friends ringside. To catch up, enjoy good food and good company with dear friends that you have not seen in a while. Weather was amazing this weekend. With 16 degrees and sun on Sunday. Dry roads, very little traffic and beautiful autumn colours as we drove home. I love driving alone - listening to sound books.

Thanks to Katarina Eivik for all your help and hospitality this weekend, and for taking all the lovely photos from the Siberian show ring. See photos on facebook

AD Snykovet´s Vida in the ring Sunday. This was Vida´s eight dog show and her first dog show indoor. Sounds and smells much more intensive than she is used to, and the dogs were shown in a tiny crowded ring. She trotted beautifully, but it was a bit difficult to keep her attention during the showing. This we just have to practice more.

Snykovet´s Vida got the following evaluation from the judge: "Very good type, good proportions in head, strong neck, very good movement", Excellent quality / red ribbon.

Newcomers: I was completely charmed by this beautiful young Siberian named Black Happies Dalton aka Hukka, owned by Victoria Ryytty in Gällivare, Sweden. Born: January 28, 2012 E: Chiliway's Never Compete With Me (Nevercrywolf Della Vanisella X Qashiwas Eyes Of The Sky) U: Black Happies Veronica (Belong To You Of Wolf Point X Snow Galaxy Goodquite's Nice Baby). The dog show in Harstad was his first, and he did very well, being ranked as the second best male, with Cert and R-Cacib. Congratulations! Photos of Hukka are used with permission from Victoria.

This lovely male also stole my hearth: Bachwi Like Nothing Else aka Sarek owned by Børge Johansen. Not only did he charm me - he also flirted wildly with Vida - and completely won her over.

The judge Francisco Salvador G Janeiro (Portugal) with the winners among the 20 Siberian Huskies entered in the NKK International dog show in Harstad October 2014: Best of Breed (BOB) in the show was NO UCH FI UCH Takoda C'fats Domino and his daughter Lapicum A Sweet Little Valentine became Best of Opposite Sex (BOS) who got CERT and CACIB.
