September 24, USA: Star is MACH2
"Today at the Brookhaven Kennel Club agility trial near me on Long Island, Star completed the requirements to gain her Master Agility Champion 2 title (MACH2). She came in 2nd place in both her runs behind her MACH son "Astro":) Star is the first dog to get a MACH on Long Island that is from Long Island, the first dog from Long Island to obtain a MACH 2, but most importantly I believe the first imported Pap to be a CH MACH 2!
This was her 1st AKC since last April she took time off to be a mom for the 3rd time :)"
From here at Blicci:.... Well done, Andrea and Star, and our sincere congratulations!

June 17, Denmark - Two BOB's and a BOS!
It was a quite fantastic day at the Danish Kennel Club International show in Aalborg in the North of the country. Jane travelled with Chip, Toddy, Bertil and Marie and had hands full during the show day. Little Toddy showed very nicely for his debut in the official classes. He won his class with "most promising" ribbon. Chip went Best of Breed, and so did Bertil - that's our good boys, LOL! And then Marie... in spite of a not perfect ring routine yet she took her second CAC and went Best of Opposite to Bertil. Way to go, silly little girl! The judge, Mr. Kim Bay had so much praise for our dogs. Thank you! Also thanks to my fellow exhibitors for help at the ringside and to get pictures taken.
June 4, Sweden - Bertil takes a Group 5 in Österbybruk
DKCH EUUV05 KLBV05 Blicci's Blue Bayou had another very nice win in Sweden. This time at the National all breed show in Österbybruk. The breed was judged by Mr. Don Mahoney from Australia (Mondelise Papillons & Phalenes). Our papillon boy Chip went second best male in breed, and Bertil was BOB and Group 5 in the very large companion dog group. A long way to travel but certainly worth it!
Toddy: Daddy, why is it raining pellets? Debbie: Daddy, are you serious about me going in again?
May 25, Danmark - Match show in hailstorm and rain
We attended the Ascension day match show at the Bakken as usual and had a nice day - at least until half into the finals, when the weather changed for the worse. Blicci's Color My Dreams (Marie) went best phalene, Blicci's Chip Shot (Toddy) went best puppy, and little Blicci's Dreams Come True (Debbie), who was at her very first show, went best baby puppy and thereafter awarded best papillon! She went into the final about best baby puppy in show and Toddy in best puppy in show, but just as Sven and Toddy was in the ring, a hailstorm attacked and the two of them got quite wet in a couple of minutes' time! In spite of this, Toddy got picked out and placed No. 5 in this final. After this, we decided to drop the final of best dog in show and go home to enjoy a warm cup of tea!
May 21, Sweden - Bertil goes Best in Specialty Show
DKCH EUUV05 KLBV05 Blicci's Blue Bayou had a nice win at the Swedish Phalene Breed Club's yearly specialty in Hässleholm, going BOB and BIS.
