Well we had a spectacular weekend last weekend as our last weekend before the holidays and end of the year throughout the World.
First, Polo, Ch. Arabella's Voyager has been doing well, he got both his CAC in Austria and needs one more for the Austria Championship, and he got another CAC towards his KFT/German championship in Germany last weekend and Best of Opposite Sex. Thank you Mirko and Martina for taking care of my boy and making my dreams come true for him.
Now, on to our big news!! Eric Sote was invited to judge Best in Show from Australia and he chose Ch. Beameups Solid Gold for the Best in Show, he also bestowed Best in Show upon us with Land Rose JP All Right, aka Max, whom also got Best Puppy in Show! I was also Reserve King with Eric the Airedale, so greedy we were!
It was BIS number 5 for Goldie, the judge really loved her so much.
The following day Goldie was Group 2 at the Tokyo FCI, but her fans still cheered for her! Max was Puppy King and Res.BPIS!!! This was his final win for his PUppy Korea, he won a total of 5 Best in Shows as a youngster, not bad!!!

Oh, and I almost forgot, Polo got his 3rd Austria ticket in Wels, he needs one more for the Austrian Champion Title, and he got the upgraded CACIB as well for his Int. Title, he needs 2 more tickets there as well, Thank you Martina and Mirko for keeping him and allowing him to finish this titles. I miss my son! :-)
We went to the Kawagoe Rengoten on Sunday and Goldie was Group 1st. Max was Group 1 puppy and Best Puppy in Show. Goldie showed awesome, she hasn't shown this well in a while, she was so happy and pulling around the ring, she loves to show still. I just wish she could have got something but now the politics for the shows are so bad at the moment. Always the same dogs are winning and all because of who owns them or how much money, but this is the same all over the world, so I continue to fight with Goldie to win as much as we can. I am still so proud that a wheaten Scottish Terrier could win so much in this country and honestly, I hope that her owners are as proud as I am and I'm so glad to be a part of her career and that they have trusted me and given me this opportunity to share in her success. This past weekend everyone told me she is looking really good now and that she should have a good chance, I wish they were the judge! :-) Mr. and Mrs. Nakahara are very happy about Max, I am happy to exhibit him, he will be fun for the future. Thank you Mari for these fast samples, I also have Goldie's Best in Show Photo from Elaine Young. I'm finding that most foreign judges like her, especially from the states, some Australian judges like her but sometimes I think her type is too different for them. :-)

We came back from the World Show and kept running as usual. The Scottish Terrier Japan Specialty was on the 23rd and Vandra Huber came to judge, along with husband Mike and junior Shannon. We saw the sites and went to the show. I was happy, Polo's son, Sarahjoy JP Sukekiyo, aka Baltic was Winners Dog and AOM, he is out of my breeding of Polo and Cookie and they are about 14 months old now. Goldie has been doing very well, she got a Reserve Queen on the 15th of Nov, and two Group 1's the following days at the Kyushu FCI. Just last weekend she was Group 1 at the Osaka FCI, one of the biggest shows of the year so this was a nicer result then last year. We've got two more weekends of shows and then we are taking some time off for the holidays. Max has been doing good too, he also got another Reserve Puppy King on the 17th of November, last weekend in Osaka he was Puppy Group 2, we let the Yorkie win, Max needs to learn how to slow down and walk on all fours. He's got so much heart and energy that he forgets that he's supposed to move. :-) I'll post pictures of Goldie when I have them ready.
