Show star one day, Rally Sensation the next. Mischa was awarded Neuter in Group at Bungendore & Palerang District show on the weekend and was beautifully handled by interstate visitor Lyndsay. Lyndsay handles the rather handsome Arley (Ch. Finnesse Aim for Fame (AI)) in South Australia and we heard she would be in Canberra. Knowing she's a bit of a fan of Mischa i thought we'd lay it on thick. Mischa did a lovely job and came away with a ribbon a travel mug and a blue blanket for her troubles.
Titan and Summer also showed with Summer taking Best of Breed and Titan taking Runner Up. i thought he might've had it over her on the day but she just pipped him.
I later entered Titan in a 'Trainee Judges Sweepstakes' This is for aspiring judges to get more hands on experience with the breeds and was really well supported with approximately 28 Working Dogs entered. Titan was shortlisted. So proud of this gorgeous boy.
The next morning at ridiculous o'clock, we drove to Sydney to catch up with some more Lappies as i'd entered Mischa and Dolce in an Advanced Rally Trial. One look at the set up and i had my doubts about how Dolce would go and he didnt even make it into the ring. Better luck next time.
Mischa on the other hand was all geared up to go. A bit of confusion by the steward meant we were waiting for much longer than we expected and Mish had given up and decided to lay down and get cuddles from her new best friend Liz, (owner of Ludo, another ridiculously handsome Lappie from Finnesse Kennels who had his first go in a Rally Trial on the day also). I thought we might be doomed but Mischa managed to pull it together for the trial even if it wasnt her most enthusiastic effort. We passed with a score of 80/100 and Mischa now has her Rally Advanced Title and will be known as Aus Ch & Neut Ch Armahani Bloodstone Bilaidit RA. We are so proud of our beautiful cream angel.
