In Memoriam

Two longtime friends have traveled over the rainbow bridge. They both were joys to their owners and left empty spaces behind them.

Vicway Laugh "Roppu" 14.3.1998-15.7.2012

"Roppu" was owned, taken care of and loved by Tiina Muros, kennel Upos.

Vicway Bouquet "Teri" 1.4.1996-24.8.2012

"Teri" was owned by Pirjo Isomäki.

This and that from summer 2012

Long time with no updates, sorry. The summer is just flying by.

Finnish Nationals gave a new medal holder when C.I.B Vicway Nirvana "Kirppu" and her handler Terhi Kaitila took bronze in the team competition.

That is really great. Congratulations!

C.I.B Vicway Euphoria "Riia" has been competing actively in agility and she has taken placements several times in big classes.

She was also shown in Pärnu, Estonia and took CC and CACIB there and also finished her title of Estonian Champion.

Agility and Show Team Vicway also wants to introduce two new members: Meet Sheltie Sensusan Show Stopper "Sofi" and Welsh Vicway Baila-Baila "Ruuti"!

Sheltie Sensusan Show Stopper "Sofi" was at her first agility trials and started her career by winning her class with a faultless run!

Sofi is proudly owned by Mari Närhi and Teemu Loponen. They have kindly given me the opportunity to train with this super Sheltie. This has been a very educational time and has also given plenty of fun!

Another young promise is Vicway Baila-Baila "Ruuti" (Ch Ronesco Talisman - Ch Vicway Boadicea). She was shown for the first time at Finnish Terrier Club's Specialty Show August 25th. She took her first CC and was BOB junior and 2nd in best bitch class right after Vicway Euphoria.

Ruuti is co-owned with Soile Mustjärvi-Riihelä and Risto Riihelä. Many thanks to Soile for the great work with Ruuti's hair!

I also want to thank Terhi Kaitila for spending hours and hours taking and editing these wonderful pictures of the dogs mentioned and shown above.

Another new Agility Champion 19.5.2012

The story continues.

C.I.B. Vicway Euporia "Riia" finished her title of Agility Champion. Just a few days after it was even possible for her to have the final Agility-CC! (Time limit: one year between first and last CC).

Congratulations! Great work! And a very special dog!

Birthday party 14.3.2012

C.I.B. Fi & Se Agility Ch Vicway Look "Ruttu" had her birthday party this weekend. She filled 14 years at 14.3. Luckily she is still in good condition and we had a chance to offer her some agility which she enjoyed a lot!

She also had some friends visiting. She is so happy and positive little friend!

Ruttu is mother to C.I.B. Vicway Valkyria and Ch Vicway Dirty Trick. She is grandmother to several high quality dogs, among others C.I.B. Vicway Euphoria and C.I.B. Vicway Nirvana. And being granddam to Vicway Nirvana makes her also great granddam to charming little Estelle!

Puppy born 23.2.2012

C.I.B. Vicway Nirvana "Kirppu" has had her little princess!

Father is handsome young USA import Bayleigh Shaireab's Touch of Gold.

"Estelle" is looking for a co-owner near by.
