The year gave us new and pleasant memories, resulting in four new champions and two new litters.
We started the year by congratulating Annelli and Smillan (Posh Peach) to BOS and the qualifying certificate for a championship in Gothenburg in January. Congratulations to Annelli and thank you so much for your cooperation and participation.
March brought the Malmö show, for the first time in our new Exhibition hall, just a stone’s throw from us. It was a hat trick for Kennel POSH, BOB, BOM. “Kitty” (Posh Party Kit” was awarded BOB and got her final certificate achieving the title of Swedish Champion. Posh Playtime came over from Denmark and was awarded Best Dog.
The next day, Kita (our Shiba) got a certificate and awarded Best Bitch-4 from the junior class. An exciting start to what was to be a very successful year.
In February Ronja (Posh Prive) had pups, this time one boy and two girls.
We went over to Denmark in May to show our Danish sold Posh Playtime who was awarded third best dog in stiff competition.
Kita was awarded her second certificate (Danish this time), got BOB and CPHV-12.
In June we were off to Borås, an annual tradition including a visit to Ullered before the show. This year it was Shibas day and Kita got a certificate. We helped Kitas breeder Kennel Noven, who were awarded BIS. What a wonderful feeling and we were even included in Hound Sport.
Summer brought a new litter of westies, this time Kitty (Posh Party Kit) gave us three dogs, making a wonderful puppy summer.
Even with new pups at home we went to Tvååker and presented Posh Papaya (Toby) to the show world. We had not seen him since he was a puppy and what a pleasure seeing him, Annelli had trimmed him beautifully, Thanks Annelli.
Kita was awarded a certificate and was awarded third best bitch. A lovely weekend.
With this taste of victory we were off to Ronneby Brun (Swedens most beautiful showground) where Posh Papaya got BOB and his second certificate.
Westie GRANDMA “Lisa” (Multi Champion Posh Unique) loves dog shows and thoroughly enjoyed the day. In the afternoon she was awarded second place in Best in Show final for veterans. Mum Anne was both proud and emotional.
Kita got yet another certificate and 2nd best bitch. Kennel Noven were finalists in the breeder group and while waiting for the final showing and having fun, we almost missed it!
News from Tånga Hed told us that Toby had won his final certificate and became Swedish Champion.
Sofiero is a lovely showground in good weather and it was so this year. Toby was awarded best Dog and BOB2. Kitty came in at 2nd place bitch in tough competition with Danish and German dogs. A day to be remember and lots of pictures of Toby and Kitty.
What a career for Toby! Special thanks to Anneli and Kristina. We are proud to be his breeder. He is a lovely Westie example and a true friend.
Kita managed to gather 9 (nine) certificates during the year and reached the age of two in November. In December, in Denmark, she got her qualifying certificate which meant that she is now Swedish Champion, Danish Champion and CPH-12 Novens Goshaga.
With that, 2012 ended as successfully as it started.
Thank you all friends and customers for a super 2012.
Inger and Anne
We decided not to show as much as previous years, but those we were in proved to be successful. We were at the World Dog Show inParisand acquired a new breed (A Shiba) named Kita who has made an entrance in competition.
The year for us began in Denmarkwhere Posh Playtime (owned by Birgitta Winters kennel Fodnote) lives. His debut resulted in 3rd place Dog with a reserve certificate in a very hard competition.
Another success at the same show, Westie-World Glen Spey (Posh Priceless, the same line as siblings Posh Electra Glide och Posh Super Glide). During the year she won several certificates, BOB and Best Bitch both inDenmarkandSweden. “Tallie” was the most successful bitch in Denmark 2011.
Showtime in Hörby (Swedish Terrier Club) Posh Party Kit was our debutant. She handled it all very well, got her first certificate and was awarded Best Bitch. Posh Pepino was with us and got Excellent.
One lovely summer’s day early in July, we sat on Inger´s terrace and started talking about the World Dog Show inPariscoming up the following week. Why not pop over and have a look at the dogs and have a break inParis. No sooner said than done we booked flights and a hotel inParisand saw lots of lovely westies, group sections with Swedish success and spent four wonderful days in this fantastic city. A trip we will remember for a long time.
Home again we went up to Tvååker (Kennel Club show) with Posh Party Kit (Kitty). She performed very well and got her second certificate!
In August we took a trip to Tånga Hed. We were aiming for a last certificate for Kitty so took an “old man” Posh Sportstar (seven years old) who we also used at stud.
This time Posh Peach (Smilla) got her first certificate, closely followed by Posh Party Kit. Smilla was awarded best bitch.
Posh Sportstar got 2nd best dog with a reserve certificate. A very knowledgeable judge made it a successful day.
At the end of August we had the opportunity of buying Kita (Novens Goshaga wara), a Shiba. She was 11 months old and could not stay with her family because of allergies.
What a treasure she is, funny, beautiful and well mannered. From the start she loved all of our westies and children. A lovely burst of energy.
For her first show we took her to Sofiero as one of 35 shibas.
Anne showed her and she won her class getting Excellent, Certificate class and 4th best bitch. What a debut! and there will be more.
The following day, Westie World Glen Spey was judged BOB closely followed by Posh Party Kit as number two.
November gave Posh Peach her second certificate, cacib and was awarded BIM in Växjo. Congratulations to Anneli who trims and shows her very professionally.
We have had two litters this year and you will be seeing more of them in the future.
Thank you all of our friends and puppy buyers for your support during the year!
