Past weekend we had 3 Kangelani's attending the Nordic Winner Show held in Stockholm this year. There were more than 100 entries and judge were Leni Finne from Finland.


Kangelani's Impressive Inka had her first outing since her maternity leave and did very well placing 4th in champion class in stiff competition. Well done Inka and Birgitta!

Her litter brother Kangelani's Impressive Ino made it all the way to 2nd best dog with reserve CACIB so close to a new title! 

Kangelani's Gentle Malaika by Clay placed 2nd in champion class and finally as 3rd best bitch! This means that Malaika will end as the 2nd most winning rr bitch at the SRRS Goldlist! Ino will also get a top10 placement at the dogs list but as for now I am not sure exactly which place he will end up at.

To top of this great results Thanzi's amazing daughter Ch RidgeBows Scilla of Thanzi came out on top gaining yet another BOB and also the title NordicWinner 2011! Huge congratulations to breeders Sven and Bitte and to handler Ulrika!
