Best Of Group again!

This weekend at INT Varazdin (CRO) we decided to only enter Toffifee and he did not let us down. He just turned 18 months, but we had shown him in intermediate class before already. Toffi (Black Majesty Never A Dull Moment) took the breed both days with nice words from the judges and was chosen as BEST OF GROUP by Mr. Sruk. With the gained CACs Toffifee is now a brand new Croatian Champion. – We only need to wait for the confirmation, which will be done as soon as he is 2 years of age.

3 weekends of shows are over and each time either Toffifee or his sister Milica won the group! How exciting is that! Also this was the first time I stepped back into the ring since September lasts year, so it was double the fun!

…another dog, another groupwin!

This weekend we could not travel to Croatia, but Mak’s dad took both, Toffi and Milica, to Iva and Iva showed them for us. Milica – Black Majesty New York – made us incredibly proud by winning Best Of Breed both days and Toffi – Black Majesty Never a Dull Moment – was BOS to her twice.

Two weekends ago we still hoped that Milica could finish her Junior Championship of Croatia and she did it in a record time and just before she turned 18 months. It was really huge luck that we could still find three shows and she could take the JrCAC title at each!

On Saturday Iva showed Milly in the finals and she could totally win the judges’ hearts: Milica was chosen as Res. JUNIOR BEST IN SHOW and BEST OF GROUP! Unbelievable, two showdays and both kids of Evita won a group each. The next day Dea Kurjak showed her in the group, where she was placed as Res. Best Of Group with Milica. Thank you everyone, we are beyond happy and proud!

First show, first groupwin!

It has been nearly a year since our dogs entered a ring for the last time. Wall-E was shown in September 2020 and Toffifee and Milica in July 2020. Ever since there was no show that took place. We decided to enter our two youngsters in Zagreb after so many months.

It is a bit of a shame that they missed nearly all their Junior career, but they made us proud with their first steps back at shows 😀

Toffifee – Black Majesty Never A Dull Moment
Toffifee was entered into intermediate class immediately, since another younger dog from Iva showed in juniorclass. We decided not to compete for Junior Championship with Toffi, but immediately start to collect CACs for the adult championship. Toffi did not let us down and took the breed. In the finals he showed superb and went on to be BEST OF GROUP at his first show where that was possible!

Milica – Black Majesty New York
Sister Milica  was shown too, but decided for her to try and get the Junior championship of Croatia. She took Junior CAC and opened it with it.

It was a very cool and successful showday for our pandemic kids!

Evita’s daughters in the Baltics

Yesterday was the day that Evita’s latest litter turned 9 months, making them Juniors! I found this to be the perfect time to introduce you to two fabolous daughters of Evita (…yes you can maybe feel the proud grandma over here!)

Brita – Black Majesty Never Been Better
Brita lives in Estonia and is owned by Iva Raic and Marilin Karu. Brita is out of Evita (Black Majesty Griotte) and Elliott (Around Double Magic) and turned 9 months yesterday. She can look back onto an amazing puppy carreer: 8x BOB Puppy, BIS2 puppy, 2x BIS3 puppy and 3x BIS4 puppy! Brita is Marilin’s first PBGV and she is doing a wonderful job with her. Can’t wait to see how they will do in the adult classes <3

Lucy – Black Majesty Bee’s Knees
Lucy also lives in Estonia and is owned by Pille Lipson. I was lucky enough to meet her again last year at EDS in Wels and was reminded again that she is the only one of that litter looking more like mummy than daddy. Lucy is out of Evita (Black Majesty Griotte) and Cheesecake (Black Majesty Serendipity). Miss Lucy has been on fire lately winning one group after another: Only in the last month she was placed in several groups and could win BEST OF GROUP for 3 times including at the Baltic Winner show! Woooow, is all I can say <3

Strange Bundessieger Show – Tulln

Oh how I would wish things would finally be back to normal, but unfortunately numbers in Austria are raising again, borders are closing and we had worries Tulln would be cancelled. It wasn’t but had hard rules and no group competitions or and Best In Show competitions.

Wall·E – JCH CH Whistlewood’s Triumph – was the only one being shown of our team that weekend and finished with the highest possible results at this strange show: BEST OF BREED both days! With these results we can apply for the INTERNATIONAL CHAMPION! He is also Crufts qualified and became “Bundessieger 2020“.

Both judges, Wim Wellens (NL) and Erwin Deutscher (A), wrote nice words about him, pointing out his soft expression and true breedtype. Can’t wait to show again, but I have a feeling we are facing another longer break again….

First show after Corona: SPLIT!

After a long break without dog shows due to COVID-19, we could finally compete again: Our most loves show every year opened the new start of the showseason, namely the 4 Summer Night shows in Split, Croatia!

  • Naty – JRBIS JCH CH Black Majesty Reggaeton Lento: 3x BOS, 1x BOB, Split Winner’20 Croatian Champion
  • Wall·E – JCH CH Whistlewood’s Triumph (only shown on 2 days): 2x BOB, Split Winner’20, Croatian Champion

Also Evita’s latest puppies had their debut and showed themselves like little pros:

  • Pudding – Black Majesty Name The Game: 2x BOB Puppy
  • Toffifee – Black Majesty Never A Dull Moment: 1x BOB Puppy
  • Milica – Black Majesty New York: 1x BOB Puppy & res. BEST IN SHOW Puppy

We are incredibly happy about all this success and are very proud on what the “Black Majesty” relatives achieved:

  • Elliott – BIS Ch Around Double Magic: 2x BOB, 2x BOG1, reserve BEST IN SHOW
  • Zucchero – BIS JCH Black Majesty Superstitious: 1x BOB, res. JBIS, 3rd JBIS, BOG, BEST IN SHOW & SUPREME BEST IN SHOW!!!
    Huge congrats!!

….an unbelievable dogshow-weekend with amazing friends and tonns of emotions came to the end. It was a pleasure to be there as every year!

Success @ World Dog Show

This year the World Dog Show 2018 was held in Amsterdam, NL. We travelled there together with a bunch of dogs and had a blast for sure. Having shown two puppies at Benelux Winner show, we had a day off and then came back for World Dog Show.

Our Izzy – Black Majesty Hollywood – was shown in a big champion class and was graded Exc with the words “That one is really nice”. He showed himself wonderfully as he always does and I could not be happier.

Our youngster Parfait – Black Majesty Bubble In Trouble – (Evita’s daughter) is a baby full of herself. That little dog is very energetic and drew all the attention to herself. She took her class (baby class) and competed against her brother for the final decision of Best Minor Puppy of Breed. Again she was unstoppable (literally…) and won the title! That alone would have made us very proud, seeing such a young dog, showing herself off so well, but no .. Parfait decided it was not the time to stop yet. She went into the finals with Iva Raic and WON IT ALL! Parfait was chosen as MINOR PUPPY BEST OF DAY at WORLD DOG SHOW – nothing bigger could have happened. Needless to say we are very excited!

You can watch a bit of her competing in the big ring <here>.

Evita makes history!

Coming back from her maternity leave Evita – Black Majesty Griotte – made us proud already as she won several Best Of Breed’s and closed her CROATIAN GRAND CHAMPION, but it wouldn’t be Evita if that would be all:

We came back from INT Innsbruck with a brand new AUSTRIAN GRAND CHAMPION! After Izzy made history last year by being the first PBGV to win an all-breed BIS, it was our Evita’s turn this year! She is the FRIST PBGV to gain this title, which makes us extra proud! At that show Izzy took the breed both days and finished the days with a BOG 3 & BOG5 groupplacement 🙂
