We can look back at a fantastic year 2014 with a lot of activities in the show ring and with lots of success too. Three new champions, Danish Ch BLicci's Join The Team, Danish Ch Blicci's It Takes Two To Tango after only 6 shows totally, and last but not least Danish and Swedish Champion Blicci's Jazz It Up, who in plus of her champion titles could add a number of prestigious titles too: Copenhagen Winner 2014, Danish Winner 2014, Danish Club Winner 2014 (No. 1 phalene bitch of the year), Danish Kennel Club Breed Winner 2014 and Danish Club Champion. Also our little DKCH SECH Blicci's Hexia De Trix had a smashing year, taking her Swedish title in the most impressive way, entered at just one show this year, the international show in Tvååker where she took Best of Breed in a huge entry. In Denmark she went Copenhagen Winner 2014 and had a nice last show weekend in Herning with a best female and BOS.
Now we look forward to an exciting new year, and in addition to the the established stars we have in the usual Blicci style some promising new show potentials waiting in the wings! "2015 Bring It On" and it will be great to see you all again very soon!
November 7, Denmark: A lot of lovely new wins for our dogs!
This year has been a great year for us in the show rings, and October and November were no exceptions. Bianca continued her winning ways at the club shows with several big wins and points for the club winner ranking, and the title of Danish Club Winner 2014, i.e. top winnng phalene female, is now sure. Also she finished her Danish Club Champion title. At the year's last international show weekend in the Danish Kennel Club, Bianca went BOB on Saturday and BOS on Sunday and achieved two more new wonderful titles: Danish Winner 2014 and Danish Breed Winner 2014. We are totally thrilled about this lovely and happy girl and so grateful for all the nice comments about her from both judges and friends. Thank you!
Also Toffee did well in Herning, going best female and BOS papillon on Saturday.
And last but not least, our handsome imported boy from Lemuro Kennel in Lithuania, Lemuro What's Up, took his first title, Danish Junior Winner 2014! Cooper just loves the show scene and charms everybody.
September 21, Denmark: Two Blicci Copenhagen Winners in the same show make a new kennel record!

September 6, Denmark: Bianca is Best In Specialty Show for the first time
Best in Specialty Show for the first time, Bianca was going into the footsteps of her father, grandfather, great-grandfather, great-great grandfather and great-great-great grandfather, all phalenes going BISS over the papillon, always a nice accomplishment from the dropear point of view! Congrats to BOB papillon, DKCH SECH DECH DEVDHCH Toymaker's Wannabe Vip.

August 10, Finland: Cooper is BOB Puppy at the World Dog Show!
Lemuro What's Up, our 7 months old papillon boy, took a wonderful win at the world dog show under Dusan Paunovic, going Best Puppy in quite keen competion, defeating e.g. a top winning puppy from Finland. Big congratulations to Cooper's breeder, Egle Palaimaite in Lithuania! This was just Cooper's second show weekend out but he enjoyed the whole event a lot, like a little pro.
July 26, Denmark: Joe-Joe is now Danish champion, Bianca takes her first BOB, and Cooper wins at his first show
What a day for us at the Danish Papillon and Phalene Club's double show. At the morning show, judged by Annette Bystrup, our puppy Cooper, Lemuro What's Up had his debut in the show ring and went Best Puppy. A little later, Joe-Joe went best male #2 with CAC, and thus finished his Danish champion title at his first show after turning two years. At the afternoon show, judged by Gunnar Nymann, Bianca shined in the ring and took her first Best Of Breed. Cooper took Best Puppy again and Joe-Joe took his first Club CAC for the title Danish Club Champion. A wonderful day and thanks to both judges.
July 11, Sweden: Toffee took Best of Breed and finished her Swedish champion title
Tvååker in Sweden is, like Vejen in Denmark, one of the show weekends we like to travel to, a nice show venue and well organised. This year Jane only attended the Friday show, and our little Toffee went straight to the top in a large entry of 69 papillons. Best female with CAC and CACIB, and Best of Breed. Our sincere thanks to the judge, Heather Lamont from Ireland. And thanks to all the nice people there, Danish as well as Swedish, who cheered us on and were good company all the day. You are much appreciated!
June 21 & 22, Denmark: New Blicci champion and a great show weekend in Vejen
The Vejen show weekend was another great weekend for our dogs. On Saturday, Joe-Joe went best male with CAC and CACIB. Only six days too young to finish his Danish champion title! Thanks to the judge Kenneth Edh from Sweden! On Sunday he took again CACIB and went 2nd best male. And topping it all, Bianca finished her Danish and Swedish champion title and got also her first CACIB. Thanks to the judge Kim Bay from Denmark!

Thanks to the judge Charlotte Høier for the lovely words about our little beauty.
