Martti returned home from his tour today. In Sweden he won open class and was fourth best dog in his breed. Today he was even more successful: at Voittaja 2008 show at Messukeskus he was Best of Breed and thus got the title V-08 to add to his FI MVA title. I think he now has more titles than I do, definitely he has more trophies...
We have been celebrating with chocolate for people and dentasticks for Martti. He also had his fifth birthday while on the road, so that had to be celebrated also.
Now he has time to rest on his laurels and enjoy life, there is nothing on his schedule before his eye exam sometime in the spring: heelers are prone to a nasty genetic eye disease called lens luxation and regular eye checks are recommended for all but especially for breeding dogs.
So now we are just going to enjoy long walks on the Tali golf course and try to learn new tricks, maybe even take in an obedience training course.
