Garp - 21 months

Finally we went for walk when the sun was still up and made some "typical winter pics in the snow" :o)
You can see this:
1/ energy bomb that is called by everybody Garp, is still happy, playful, carefree a pleased puppy
2/ it is obvious from static shots he is going to celebrate 2 years :o)))

Frolic pics are with our friend Caston who is older than Garp, but they are both dominant and stubborn so it is always no-boring meeting :o)
Than Garp did some modeling:
1/ meditating 2/ fop 3/ offened 4/ phlegmatic 5/ sad
And where you can see all those photos? Click on the pic up :o)


15th November 2008 Coursing training Rudná p. P.

Garp enjoyed this coursing by MSC very much and was very happy and pleased. His eagerness before the first run saw everyone and everything - dirty trousers, jacket, rucksack, leash, chair, hardpacked grass, injured own ear and he wanted to uproot even fence stake :o)
Great pics made Elfka. Thanks a lot ;)
Click on flying Garp = more pics from coursing :o)

Saranga sprint Saranga sprintGarp - V1 CACA Tulln
amateur class: 7th place :o)))


"It should be sprint and straight run, Garp", I said to my laughing ginger :o))) We finished in our class last but one. In the half of the first run Garp turned round and said to me tassel had forgot turn and was probably broken down :o) In the second run he said that directly to the crew at the irish bank :o) And stop joking, please :o) But it was problem for most of dogs who were used to run coursing.
Nevermind, it was very nice day and all dogs were satisfied and happy.

Garp - V2 Ostrava Exam of basic obedience ZOPGarp - V1 CACA Tulln
75 pts, mark good!!!


We have made sure ourselves Garp is handsome and run very fast. So we wanted to discover if he had got something else in his head but bitches, tassels and eating. And he did :-)
Morning was really chilly, tepmerature about 3°C, hoarfrost and persuade ridgeback to lie down in such weather :-) Fortunately the sun appeared and we were in the end of the list, uff :-)
Garp worked perfect and lost only 5 pts. And next 20, because stay on the place more than 3 or 4 minutes is impossible, isn't it? :-) But he is very smart and Daddy Kali left some print in Garp :-)

The Club Show was perfect again. Garp was successful and even the weather showed its better face :o)
We were also very courious about critiques from Linda Costa and Rosemary Green and they were great and almost identical. Pleasing head and expression, lovely topline, strong bones and feet, well balanced angulations and body, very good movement, correct bite and also chest was blessed, even if Linda Costa would prefer to see a little more width in chest :o) But Garp is changing every day. On the other hand has good breed type in the critique.
We are very satisfied and results are wonderful :o)


I used nice weather and good light and made some new pics of ginfer in his 18 months. Click on Garp :o)

This was our last show in Poland in this year and we are pleased by that. Garp is looking forward to his merited show holidays, 'cause will have more time for rogueries :o)


1st July 2008

I wanted to prove today if Garp had enjoyed swimming or not. He can swim, but doesn't want to.
We were with our friends Kerry and Enny there. Kerry is pro swimmer, who looks like Ian Thorpe in the public pool :o) Enny is total non-swimmer. Garp is something between that. I had to fetch him far from bank and he had to swimm. Directly back :o)
We had great time and took some pics!!! Click on image for more photos!!!

I had been very long hesitated, if I had to go to this show or not, because we had took part in so many shows this year. But I needed to pick up some more signatures under petition about new national lure-coursing rules. And the president of MSC, Barbora Zdráhalová, handled some dogs there, I had decided to go there.
Garp was full of energy, had good mood and ran very very nice. The judge enjoyed him so he got so wonderful results in very good competition.


22th June 2008

Preparation for new floorball season is high so after consultation with Garp I took part in tournament. He said OK, but no elite serien :o)

fatpipe cup 2008

4 matches in 2 days with rich additional program are quite difficult, so we went strech our legs on Sunday to Hukvaldy with Kerry and Enny and then to Dolní Datyně with Thorp.

Garp - Art Leonardo Helya Ridge - walk

We wanted to spend this weekend with our friends in Budapest and took part in local international shows in Saturday and Sunday. Unfortunately girls fell ill which we got to know it closly before drive-away. So we stayed at home, because we wouldn't enjoy it ourselves.
We had not reserve program, so went for walk, took some pics and did barbecue.
Look at happy pics of Garp here!!!

Garp - V2 Ostrava CACIB LodzGarp - V2 CACIB Lodz
junior class: Exc2!!!


We didn't it again :o) Feelings from this international show are miscellaneous. We had nice time there, all was OK, weather was fine, but needed result didn't come.
Garp was maybe too much flegmatic, but otherwise he was really good. But the judge... when I had seen him, I hadn't good feeling with him and he affirmed it in the ring. First we had to wait in the ring almost 30 minutes, because he had 5 min. break :o) And his judgement is embarrassing: good size head, ridge could be longer and wider, freer eye and bad prezentation of straight run. That's all :o)
Dog who won our class became BOB. See photos here!!!

22nd March 2008

After a long pause we took a part in today's International Dog Show in Prague. Because of bad weather in last days, lot of car accidents on roads, we decided to went out of our house very early.
Roads were great, weather too, GPS ready, so we arrived on the place already at 6 o'clock... Damn :o) We stand hour in front of the entrance, halls of exhibition area had arctic clima, concrete all around with no grass, lot of people and no place there.
Garp was after all of that very tired and when he had to go to the show ring he fell asleep :o) Result = no interest to show himself or proved to someone he was the best. So we got very good.
We will not take a part in similar shows in the future, because this is not way I want to go. My dog is not happy there in such conditions.

2nd March 2008

Sunday morning trip to the castle in Hradec nad Moravici was very fine. It had even dramatic involution when Garp unexpectedly started haunt roes with his friend as far as the end of country :o) Mostly he stops after couple of metres, says it has no sense and turns over. Not today. In the end hounding dogs show they were very clever and returned :o)
The castle, gardens and ambient nature were super and Garp as a regular guy took picture of himself in front of a cannon :o)
Look at pictures here!!!
