26. – 27.04.2008 Best in Show Winner, International Dog Show in Lahti

As a breeder and handler of Bono this is the most memorable day so far with my Irish setters. Bohemian Whitman aka Bono was Best in Show and there was over 2500 entries.

First he went Best Male 1. even that he was entered in open class. Then he was BOB with Cacib. After that I had to drive home because I had to go to work. I can’t find the right words to tell you how grateful I am to my friend Petra Kiuru for handling Bono in the Group ring. It was amazing to get the phone call from Mylene Manninen (owner of Bono) that Bono won the Group. The breed and Group judge was Amadeo Bottero from Italy.

On Sunday afternoon I drove back to Lahti for handling Bono in the BIS ring. I was quite nervous because there were so many beautiful dogs with us in the ring. Is it possible, yes it is, our beautiful Bono won the Best in Show under judge Erin Brown from Australia. At first I wasn’t sure that they really said Bono’s name. If I have studied the statistics correctly, Bono is the first Irish setter who has won BIS in Int. Show in seven years here in Finland and he is our first home bred BIS winner.

I want to thank the owner Mylene Manninen and her husband for taking so good care of this boy. Also I want to thank Tuija Verho for grooming and Petra Kiuru for handling in the group ring. Without you, this couldn’t be possible, so thank you!
