New Champion!

….Evita added one more title to her name. 🙂 We showed her at 4 Summer Night Shows in Split this year, after she just turned 15 months 2 weeks ago, and she could win the CAC everyday, hence is NEW CROATIAN CHAMPION! This show was very special for us as 5 beautiful Petits were shown – JWW bitch, vice WW bitch, WW male,  a new import from Peru & Evita, herself vice JWW. A joy to show there 😀


Evita – first time out in adults…. Group winner!

Going to Oberwart to win Evita’s first CACIB – she has turned 15 months only the day before – our princess girl did us proud and topped all our expectations. She showed herself nicely and took the breed under Mrs. Patricia Burunkai, H. Thanks for the appreciation for our girl and also to the kind words from the ringsteward, who is a PBGV breeder and judge herself. Only staying for the group to show respect to the breed judge, Evita went in and took it all under Mrs. Phillis Poduschka-Aigner,A! With only 15 months she is already a BEST OF GROUP WINNER at an international all-breed show <3

Evita winning big … again!

I guess we could not be any prouder and happier about our Evita – Black Majesty Griotte. She is just a super dog to live with, has got a beautiful character and is a superb showman.

We decided to show Evita at the Specialty Show for Scenthounds in St. Florian under breed judge Mr. Zimmermann. He clearly loved Evita, gave her a super critique and chose her as his Junior Best Of Breed and Best of Breed over Champions entered! In the BIS competitions she showed herself amazingly and won JUNIOR BEST IN SHOW SPECIALTY under Mr. Karl P. Reisinger and was shortlisted in the last 3 in Best In Show as the only Junior dog. Moreover she finished her Austrian Junior Champion title and can now call herself “JrBISS BBIS JCh Black Majesty Griotte” – what a name for a only 14 months old dog!!
In Klagenfurt (2x CACIB) Evita was again entered and took the breed out of Juniors both days again under very strict judges, who awarded quite a lot of very goods and goods. Going on she was BOG3 & BOG5 and the only dog being shortlisted in Junior groups on Sunday again, making her an unofficial Junior Best Of Group again, as we don’t award this title in Austria.


Evita showing her attitude…

Last minute, as always, we decided to enter Evita for the CACIB show in Wieselburg 2016. Our judge Mrs Phyllis Poduschka-Aigner showed again how strict she was by awarding only one Basset Hound excellent, the others were vg. Walking in with Evita the judge immediately told us that she liked our junior a lot, giving her a lovely critique and awarded the JrCAC. Then Evita was beating the adult dogs and went on to be BEST OF BREED. In the groups she showed her attitude again and is a brand new groupplacer! In Junior Best In Show she was the only dog being shortlisted out of FCI group 6 – making her an unofficial (as we don’t have JrGroups in Austria) JUNIOR BEST OF GROUP once again 😀 we are beyond proud!
