Thursday 17th December
I took Butters, Rosie and Morris with me to Vilnius, Lithuania. The plan was to do some Christmas shopping and go to Christmas Cup Show in the weekend.
I stayd in a lovely hotel right next to a big shopping center, so all the presents was easy :)
The show was 2 Internationale and with possibility for Cacib both days on my dogs. Both Butters and Rosie needed one more Cacib to gain the honourable title C.I.B - Campion Internationale Beauty. Both won their Cacib`s and Butters also became a Lithuanien Champion, Rosie already have that title. Little Morris also did great and became 2BM both days and since Butters took his Cacib on Saturday, Morris got the Cacib on Sunday, very happy for this great results.
Spent some nice time with my friends from Estonia too, they stayed in the same hotel and we had dinner together in the evenings.
I and the dogs went home on Monday night, tired but happy :)

In the hotel. Here Butters and Rosie with their prizes the first day.

Friday 14th Mars me, Ellinor, Pippin and Thea stood on Gardermoen with butterflies in our tummy on our way to Lithuania.
A while ago we decided that we wanted to go to Lithuania for the Lithuanian Winner show 2008 and Vilnius Cup show, 2 big international shows with possibilety for Cacib both days.
Good preperations with very good help from my dear friend Ilona, Kennel Neibade, this journey became a fantastic success for us.
The plane took off from Gardermoen 2010 and landed in Vilnius 2300, about 2 hours it took us to get there, we turned our clocks 1 hour forward so that is way it seems like it took 3 hours but it did not.
We booked in to the hotel 0045 and went finally to bed worn out and excited for the next day.
Saturday morning in a cab on our way to the show place. At the show place was some of the first I saw my good friend Sirpa from Finland together with her 3 affenpinschere, little Cindy - my heartbreaker from my trip to Finland were I lived with Seija and Alpo in Kennel Seibrin. And Pippin`s grandson Rasse, Neibade`s Grifild, and Risse, Seibrin Kokako.
Sirpa had taken good places for us all inside and we spent 2 wonderful days together with Sirpa and her two good friends from Finland, Ari and Maija.
Ellinor walked with both Pippin and Thea both days in the ring and won :) so I walked Pippin myself when we walked for BOB and BOS.
I have to admite that it took some time before I landed after this journey and I am not sure that I have got both my legs on the ground yet, we came home with 2 Internationale Champions, 2 Lithuanian Champions and 2 Lithuanian Winners 2008 - what a fantastic result for us.
We went home again on Monday evening and now I sit here and look at all the pictures and think about all the great memories from the weekend in Vilnius I have about this journey and I have to say this is not the last time I will go out for show.
Pippin and Thea they really loved each others company and they also found out that the other ones food was soo much better then the one they got self, so Pippin ate Thea`s food and enjoyed aunt Ellinor`s company and Thea she ate Pippin`s food and blinked happy to me aunt Ingunn:)
The entertainment Thea took care of, she danced for us and did all sort of things to get us to laugh and laughed we did of this funny little lady.
More about the result and pictures you can see in results and pictures from show.

After the first show day we were so tired and all 4 of us just hanged on the sofa and bed. Pippin and Thea just ate and went to bed.
