C.I.B & EE & LT CH, EE JCH, BALTW-15 Merry Moonray’s Charming Ariel

Two new Finnish Champions (and also Estonian champions titles for them) :

FI & EE CH Merry Moonray’s What A Wonder

And two new foreign champion titles:
LT & LV CH, EE & LV & LT & BALT & RU JCH Merry Moonray’s Blue Roulette
EE CH Merry Moonray’s Firecracker

Also one junior champion and two veteran champions:
EE & LV JCH Merry Moonray’s Double The Drama
EE VCH Merry Moonray’s Drama Queen (she is also C.I.B & FI & EE & LV & BALT CH)
EE VCH Merry Moonray’s Wild Wonder (she is also FI & EE & LV CH, LV JCH)

We had 8 different BOB/BOS winning collies, some of them of course several times. Four different CACIB winners. CC winners are so many that I can’t even count of them. 12 diffrent dogs have got Best male/Best female placements in Finnish dog shows (most of them several placements). And again , I don’t know how many placements from abroad…

Rally obedience results were also something to remember. Merry Moonray’s Like A Dream and Merry Moonray’s Dreamcather competed in the highest class with great results. Three new MM collies started to compete in rally-obedience and all got title RTK1.

Also great results in the highest class of agility to Merry Moonray’s Samba Swing and Merry Moonray’s Mona Lisa. Both of them got several 0-results. Samba Swing also took part in Finnish Championship competitions and were placed 3rd in collie championship competition.

Merry Moonray’s Sophia Loren got approved result from Finnish rescue dog organisation test for search.

Several dogs bred by Merry Moonray’s are visiting nursing homes, war invalids, disabled persons, autistics and mental health rehab clinics and bring joy and warmth to the life of those who really need it. Thank you for your very important work; Merry Moonray’s Wild Wonder, Merry Moonray’s Masterpiece, Merry Moonray’s What A Wonder, Merry Moonray’s Blue Roulette, Merry Moonray’s Double The Drama, Merry Moonray’s Marlon Brando and Merry Moonray’s Firestorm.

This year we also got to fulfill a long time dream, when a very beautiful and promising Saluki girl Aziz Qiana, ”Amira”, moved home to us in February. Thank you very much for trusting her to our hands Stina and Janette Jalkanen. With Amira we had fun in puppy shows during the summer as she was several times BIG1 and got also BIS placements. In the end of the year she started her junior classes and from the very first official show in Finland she got CC. In Estonia Tarto IDS she got her first BOB (and also BOB junior). Year ended with Finnish Winner show where she got res-CC.

This year is something to remember. Thank you all Merry Moonray’s dog owners and all our friends!

We wish you all a Happy New Year ! See you next year !
