BEST IN SHOW Portland KC,
Breed and BIG judge Mr A. Goodwin, BIS judge Mrs. C.Camac
BEST IN SHOW all breeds
on the day when both his dam and mummy in Finland had their birthday!!!
Such an unforgettable birthday and birthday gift from Onni!
BIS judge was Mr Keith McCarthy.
Well, what can we think about his unbeliavable way to go in shows...
he did not only finish his title but won two groups in weekend
7-8.10.00 and though he had to beat in BIS final 8.10. some real top
dogs of Australia to gain Best in Show, he did not hesitate to beat
them too...though there was a whippet with 45 BIS awards as his
credit , and a husky with 2000 points as his grand champion title
credit, as well the husky had won some biggest Australian all breed
show BIS awards.. just some to mention...but Finnish Superman was at
his best showing mood when it was some pouring rain again...so he
was the lucky one who won Best in Show !!!
He won his another All Breed Best in Show in November..on the day
when her Finnish 'mummy' was celebrating her birthday and also Onnis
dam Rosie celebrated her birthday!! What an unforgettable birthday
gift it was to hear all the excitement of that show from Australia
via internet on the same day!!!

Onni and all his co owners (Darren, Tarja and Tiina) met in
Sydney April 2001!
Onni had a year to
remember 'down under'! He got many unforgettable lovely wins in show
ring and I also had an unforgettable time to follow his great
adventure via interenet and I also met him personally on my trip
there! It was lovely to see how well he had adapted to all different
things there, even the different climate. He sure enjoyed his
holiday there, when he did not even recognize his 'mummy' when I
So his co owner Darren earns huge thanks for all his wonderful
work and care with our boy...his coat finally got really
organised to perfect condition also! In such bloom it never was in
Now it is time to look forward on his coming home and when he still
obviously just loves to be in show ring, he probably doesnt want to
retire yet, though he will be a veteran boy next year!
Onni has gained (when he
left Australia) now alltogether 89 BOB, 56 BIG, 12 BIS, 14 Runner
Up BIS, 15 other BIS placements, 4 x International Show's BEST IN
SHOW Progeny Group, and one BEST IN SHOW progeny group in Spaniel
Main Club Show!... his story will go on...

Onni made an unbelivable
come back to Finland, as after 48 hours long travel he jumped out of
crate happily as allways and had only one day between the travel to
North Finland Oulu International all breed show (over 2500 entries
and all Finnish top dogs entered). He really made his presence felt
and his style to tell he is BACK was:
He won Best in Show, his Progeny class won Best in Show and he
was proudly leading Adamant's breeder group up to Best in Show!!!
Veni Vidi Vici!!!
