We had a lovely weekend when our friends Inka Luomanmäki and Jaako came to visit.
Inka has a vast knowledge of the breed as she is not only a fabulous photographer
but also a very well travelled lady.
She was really impressed with Lucky and Bridie's puppies so now Lucky will be 'very
lucky' and produce some litters in Finland with various kennels.
It was an honour to be asked earlier this year to write about my dogs and plans that
I have, in the Finnish Cirneco and Italian Greyhound magazine, Kiitajat which came
to print in March.
On Sunday I was judging at the Hunting Dogs of Ancient Egypt show in the wonderful
Someone asked if there were any Cirnechi there of which the answer is no. Having
said that we are in talks with the club about joining in and having a fun match.
The show is not just about Egypt but about hunting dogs that have a relationship
with each other, Ibizan, Sloughi, Pharaoh and Basenji. In a small numeric breed a
club sometimes has to invite other breeds to make the whole thing viable especially
when times are hard with finance in this Country.
Other wonderful news is that Anharbn Bluebayou of Allanbru owned by Cathy Allan was
Best Import Register at the Hound Association of Scotland under judge Dianne Spavin.
Many congrats Cathy, Alan & Nutmeg.
