No great performances. I can't remember the last time I failed six courses in row. Despite this Vicway Valkyria "Killi" won both of her classes and Vicway Out Of The Blue "Roope" won one. Vicway Euphoria "Riia" came second on her course, lost only to her mom.

Thanks to the fellow competitors for the warm welcome!

Finnish Nationals in Vantaa 19.-20.6.2010

Vicway Out Of The Blue "Roope" was once again part of the Järvenpään Agilityurheilijat team. This time he was the only team member to make a clean run.

Vicway Look "Ruttu" and Vicway Valkyria "Killi" were part of the Finnish Welsh Terrier Club's team. Ruttu made a beautiful run but had a fault on the dog walk. Killi made the run of her life with a clear course. She was the dog to do the final run and there was a big audience and the atmosphere was very excited. I think she just loved the big audience!

Kokkola 9.-11.7.2010

Vicway Look "Ruttu" ran her last competitions. She took part in several courses, including the international competition where she placed 10th out of 44 dogs. Great job for a 12,5 year old dog!

Ruttu is now retired. Maybe some agility for fun, but no more.

Ruttu's granddaughter Vicway Euphoria "Riia" started her agility career at the same trials where Ruttu ended hers. She had a marvelous start and won her class. Since then she has already moved on to class 2!

And everybody knows that Riia and Kirppu, who was mentioned below, are littersisters!

District Championships in Porvoo 29.8.2010

Only team competition for us. We live in a different district than that where our club is located.

Thank you team members and thank you Roope!

Five courses altogether, four clear ones. Granny Vicway Look "Ruttu" 12 years placed 6th and Vicway Out Of The Blue "Roope" was twice 3rd and once 5th.

Roope qualified himself to the Finnish Nationals. Ruttu is still missing the "double clear" (two clear courses at the same trials) but it's no blame on her, she is usually only entered to one course!

Vicway Live Free Or Die "Huuko" 5.10.1994-12.2.2010

This time it was Huuko who said goodbye to us. He left together with his lifelong companion Wire Fox Terrier "Lotta", both 15,5 years.

Huuko is greatly missed by his human family: Leena, Juha, Olivia, Leo, Viola and Silvia. Welsh Terrier Pate and Smooth Fox Terrier Helka will lighten up the day for the family.

Huuko was a very special gentleman.
