10.12.2006 Stockholm, international show, Swedish Winner-06. Entry 6. Judge Jozef Verrees, Belgium.
From Helsinki show we started to drive to Turku, from where we took a ferry to Stockholm, Sweden, where we arrived early next morning. This show is a tradition for me, and I’m glad we had 4 Catankas travelling this year. This meant we could have breeder’s class here as well.
Arttu took the breed. It was very touhing, as he’s nearly 9 years old. So he became this year’s Swedish Winner (SW-06), and I must mention his first Winner title from Finland was 1999, so while ago… Congratulations Susanna, and thanks keeping the old pal in such a good condition. Rumba won bitches and was BOS. Daughter Taiska got CAC and became Swedish Show Champion. So within a week she was titled in Finland and Sweden. Well done Heidi! Taco, yesterday’s winner took 2nd prize due to dropped incisors. So this is showing ;-)

Huge and humble thanks to everyone who made this possible.

Spaniel folk gathered again well presented to this show. As a whole, the entry was nearly 550, of which IWS represented with 17 dogs; 2 puppies and 15 adults. Best puppy – and later Best In Show puppy – first time ever in my opinion in this special show – was Bogdogs Grolsch, congratulations! Every adult received Excellent as quality, and Catankas did well again. Thank you everyone so much again participating this show, and the lovely picnic we had after the breed judging. Now to the results:
Rumba (Catanka Besserwisser) did it again. Came and won! Once again Arja ’had’ to take all the Best of Breed, and best Female trophies back home. In BIS-contest Rumba made it until the final cut, so almost at the very end. Well done!
Maisa (Catanka Freestyler) - age nearly 1,5 years - was second after Rumba in best bitch cometition. First she won Intermediate bitches. Thank you so much Mari handling her in BB-class and breeder’s class, as I was handling Rumba at the same time. Maisa also receiced CAC.

Taco (Catanka To Be Continued) was shown in Champion Class, and was 2nd in his class, and 3rd in Best male Class.

Catanka breeder’s class got prize of honour, and received lovely critique. This class included dogs: Rumba, Maisa, Taiska and Veijo.
21.10.2006 Kirkkonummi, agility trial. Judge Ritva Herrala.
Manta (Havis Amanda) and Petra made their debut in official agility contest. IWS always is considered as MAXI breed, and the first class of trial for beginners is level 1. Petra told that the day’s target was fulfilled, as her aim was not to have NQ (not qualified) round. Manta, who alwayd had been very trustful in swing, made today a contact fault. She ran the course within time allowed. Manta and Petra ended up as 14 out of 42 in this class, well done!

20.8.2006 Forssa, Water rescue trial's test class (SOVE), judge Pasi Dunderfelt.
Chili (Hit the Road Jack) and Johanna have practised official sports, water rescue, for some time. This type of water trial has designed originally for Landseers and Newfies, but other breeds may participate too, but they must first pass the trial test. Trial test's rules are the same than in Novice Class, and one dog may maximun twice try to get trial test result. Chili passed this test on Sunday and got 72 points out of 100, and this would mean 3rd prize. Test includes 4 parts, each giving max 25 points. Chili got max points from swimming and retrieving a floating boat. Rescuing a drowning person resulted 23 out of 25 possible points, as they passed the finish-line slightly at wrong place. One part, taking an item to the boat, resulted zero points, as Chili turned back to shore too early.
Congratulations Chili and Johanna!!! This dog is the first IWS in Finland ever even participated in this type of trial, not to mention passing it. Now the team has right to start to compete, all the best of luck!
