Sachsenheim (DE) 11.10.2015
5th place, Our first race on the oval, and outright in the competition of 5 females. Aprelka (yellow jacket) ran in the first place from the beginning, unfortunatelly in the third curve she was intimidated by barking of the female behind her and she let the other dogs go before her. But never mind, we are still gaining experiences.

FCI European Championship 6.-7.6.2015
The travel was long and exhausting, 21 hours from Prague to Tallin plus 2,5 hours ferry, but it totally worth it. We have a lot of great experiences. Katarína carred for us all like we were her own children, she offered us food and anything whenever it was needed, just like for her children!! Our Czechoslovak team traveled together and other members joined during the trip. This year, European championship took place in Finland, on the racing place near Helsinki. 588 sighthound from all over the Europe attended this sighthoung festival. Unfortunatelly number og dogs was smaller than previous ears, so there were only two race tracks. Aprelka is still only peaking into this world, but next year in Slovakia we plan to run!
This year Czech group was lucky to get one title, which got Zdeněk Barák with italian sighthound female, two third places for Ilona Dubnová with wolfhound male and female, Eva Dufková kept her forth place from last year with Jarvisem – greyhound. And Jana Halenková got sixth place with Drak – podenco ibicenco. We dont have so many placements as other years, because we were only few there. Slovakian dogs got one third place, it was for Olga Dašková with borzoi Dogoni Menja Mraja and sixth place for Roman and Slávka Božikovi with whippet. And in the end we enjoyed a little holiday in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.
Camargue Francie 2015
It was fantastic holiday in a bird paradise in the delta-mouth of the river Rhona, bordering on the north with the town Arles.
The Camargue is home to more than 400 species of birds and has been identified as an Important Bird Area (IBA) by BirdLife International. Its brine ponds provide one of the few European habitats for the greater flamingo. About 20 000 pairs of flamingos nest here every year. The marshes are also a prime habitat for many species of insects, notably (and notoriously) some of the most ferocious mosquitos to be found anywhere in France. Camargue horses (Camarguais) roam the extensive marshlands, along with Camargue cattle.
The native flora of the Camargue have adapted to the saline conditions. Sea lavender and glasswort flourish, along with tamarisks and reeds.
More photos you can find here: On the road:-)
Our little photo-trip.
Every morning and evening I went to take a photos of birds and the rest of the time I enjoyed with the girls on the endless empty beaches, in one word – paradise. Our girls loved it, they like shallow pond, where you can easily run, sand dunes, long beaches. Even after several hours it was impossible to get Sára out of the sea.
Aprelka and Taruška 🙂
