And soon to be the beginning of 2018.
This year has been a busy year on other behalf than Whippets. Two of our kids has turned in to young adults and have moved away to the city to attend school there. This means a great deal of adjustments and also help from us. Meanwhile we have been upgrading our old house, which is an ongoing prosess. Also with a 7 year old girl in the house we need to pay attention to more than our four legged children.
So we didn’t attend so many show rings this year. Neither did we train for Lure Coursing this year. Anyway this year has still brought us some results to be proud of.
Allfirdas Pablo Picasso – got his last CAC and was Norwegian and Swedish Champion in January, and had 2 x Best of Breed placements with 2.BOG and 3.BOG and a 3.Best Male placement during the 8 shows he attended (one in Sweden).
Allfirdas Zelda – got her last CAC and was Norwegian Champion in June, and had two Best of Breed-placements and one 2.Best Bitch placement during the 7 shows she attended .

Allfirdas Princess Lumi – living in Bergen with Ina, attended 9 shows and is missing only the kennel club Cac to become Norwegian champion. She got two 2.Best Bitch placements, one 4.Best Bitch placement and three Best of Breed placements with two BOG, one 3BOG and one 2BIS during her 9 shows.
Allfirdas Avalon – living in Løkken Verk with Tove, attended 16 shows during the year, and had good results and also received a CAC amongst several Best Bitch placements, and several placements in the junior class. She was also Best of Breed Junior and 2.BIS Junior at The Norwegian Sighthound clubs annual Sighthound show in July.

Two Best Opposite Sex (bos) placements as puppy and he won the Junior Class at Dogs4All and got his NJV-17 – title at his only adult show this year. We are looking forward to see what 2018 can bring for this youngster.

Se did really well as a puppy and brought three Best of Breed with two Group winnings and two Best in Show puppy, one of them won at The Whippet Special Show in Strømsholm.
