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 20.10 and landed in Vilnius 23.00, 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 00.45 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 admit 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 so 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.
