17-21.7.2008 regards from England.
I spent a long weekend in England, where on Saturday was held IWSA’s breed Championship show, and on Sunday SIWSC’s Working Test. In addition meeting all friends and see the latest generation of dogs in UK, one of the highlights was of course to meet  Woody (Fynder Freethinker) first time since his return from USA last year.

Entry was 45, but with some absentees. However new record for the breed in World Show. And it felt very international, as there came Irish Water Spaniels from 5 countries, which represent kennels around the world.
Queen Rumba (Catanka Besserwisser) came and won. She was in such a brilliant mood and clearly showed socks off. I just had to follow her. Really deserved win for this grandmom. First she won huge Champion bitch class, then the CACIB which made her World Winner-08, and last Best of Breed win. In the group she made cut among the best 7 under Hans Lehtinen. What a day!
Maisa (Catanka Freestyler) was second in Champion bitches right behind Rumba, and won reserve-CACIB.
Hilma (Aquatikus Frozen Xpectation) Intermediate Class win and reserve-CAC
Mette (Catanka I Have a Dream) Third with excellent in Junior bitch class
Taiska (Catanka Freedom of Speech) Excellent in Champion bitch class

Taco (Catanka To Be Continued) Excellent in Champion male class
Oskari (Catanka I Want it All) became third with excellent in Junior male class
There were 4 breeders groups presented, and Catanka-group was the best. It included dogs Rumba, Maisa, Taiska ja Patu, so respectively the are from four different litters!
Catanka-relatives also had a great day. Cousin-Boogie (Calendar Girl of Big Spaniel), out of Catanka Twist and Shout (lives in Hungary), won bitch Open class, and later got CAC, so she is now also Swedish Champion. Congratulations Pauliina! http://pauliina.vuodatus.net/

Great fun, as girl trio Jazzy (Catanka Cry Freedom) ja Samba (Catanka Do It With Freedom) and Cera (Chili Pepper of Big Spaniel) with their owners attended a swimming contest. Task was to jump to the water from a rowing boat, and then swim 50 metres to the shore as fast as possible. Well, the Irishers were certainly not the fastest ones, but did not either retrieve any marks either while swimming (surprising?). It also was said that they did the best leaps to the water. I bet both the dogs and owners had a fun day!

7.6.2008 Gällivare, Sweden tracking test. Judge Folke Sandström.
Totti (Hooligan’s Globetrotter) is now also Swedish Tracking Champion! Nina made a long trip to Northern Sweden to give it a try. The tracks are done a bit differently than in Finland, so the tests cannot be fully compared with ours. Patu (Catanka Knock on Wood) had not a lucky day today, as he just decided to terminate tracking after while, and Nina had to terminate the test. Afterwards they heard that the deer hoof of the next track was taken by some predator.

1.6.2008 Tallinn, Estonia. Judge Denis Kuzelj, Slovenia
Taco (Catanka To Be Continued) and Mari were attending Estonian Winner-08 Show. That plus Estonian Champion were gained, so well done. Taco made also cut in the group.

Patu (Catanka Knock on Wood) Winners-Class 1st prize, points 41.
Ella (Catanka Taste of Waltz) was at her very first test, and she debuted wonderfully. Open Class 1st Prize with 49 points.
Maisa (Catanka Freestyler) was Saturday’s unluckiest dog. While tracking the last third part, she switched to other track. Maisa’s track had been unfortunately done far too near to the next one, and those both tracks had to be eliminated. Anyway, we had the possibility to compete again next day, and Sunday’s result was Open Class 1st Prize with 47 points, so no hard feelings! Maisa is now moved up to the Winners Class.
Ulpu (Whistle Stop’s Bon Bon) was also at her very first test, and got result 2nd prize with 35 points.

Two coarses to run today, and Hertta got CLEAR round in her very first one, congratulations! Second round included one fault on poles. Maisa got one contact fault on both coarses.
