6.6.2010 GR Club Show in Espoo

What an unbelievable day we had! Our little wild one "Snekke" Fairquest Sea Riddle made his début in the show rings by winning Best In Show Puppy.

His grandpa "Rio" Stenbury Water Rebel who was shown for the first time after quite a long break made our day even more perfect by winning Best In Show.

A big Thank You goes to our friend Catharina Rantanen who showed both our boys so professionally!

Rio's daughter Fairquest Ps I Love You (Rio x Fairquest Silent Love) did very well too. She ended up as 4th Best Bitch.

Even if you know that this day will come you are never prepared and it breaks a piece of your heart.

Today we had to say goodbye to Julia.

 

 

She may be gone but she will never be forgotten.

 

24.2.2010 Happy 14th Birthday Julia!

All we can say is that time really does fly...

Being 14 years old Julia is still in very good condition and although she now sleeps a lot more

she still enjoys her walks and even plays like crazy with the boys for a while every now and then.

It's unbelievable... our Rio is already 7 years old.
