World Dog Show 2016 Moscow  25.6.2016
excellent – open class – (25 females) Judge: MARINA OSTROVSKAYA (RUSSIA)
There is about 2100 km ahead us, similary like last year, when we went to Finland for European coursing championship. Car navigation says it will take about 24 hours – I have no idea, how bad the roads in Russia are. First part of the journey was 1400 km, Bratislava – Ludza, Latvia, where we stayed for the night. In the morning we plan to cross the borders to Russia. But in the morning, there was several-hours long queue there. We decided not to wait there and tried to go another 100 km to another boarder crossing. On one hand there were only three cars, but it still took us 3 hours. It is the same as during the times of communists, just the paperwork and stamps look different. So our plan about reaching Moscow on Friday and having a time to walk around the city and have a food dissolved. Some of the roads in Russian remind you of tankodrom, but in the end we finally reached the highway. Oh, well, the highway… no stripes there, everybody drives, where he wants and how he wants, and the highest permitted speed is 80k/per hour. Oh great – 700 km in 80 km/hour was exhausting. Around midnight we finally reached our destination and in the morning – hooray to the show halls! They were luckily enough quite near from our sleeping place.
Organization was perfect. No waiting anywhere in the showgrounds and everything was very beautiful, fully air conditioned, so you are ok, while outside there is terribly hot. International showground Krokus Expo is one of the newest and the most modern show-halls in the world. Inner place is about 701 800 m2, 3 pavilions with 19 show-halls inside of them, restaurants and caffes with capacity for 9500 sitting people. Parking capacity 35 000 places.
There was really lot to watch at the show. 132 borzoi, a movie camera in every ring and you can watch the show on-line. Aprelka was very tired after the travel, but she showed herself very well. The second day we went to the center of Moscow. I wanted the picture with two of us on the Red square, but it was extremely hot and we ended up in the park with the fountain. So we were on many photos anyway, everybody wanted to have a photo of borzoi taking a bath in the park. The next day we went our long way home. We also had to wait at the borders, but not for so long. Anyway, we have a lot of exciting experiences!!!

FCI European Coursing Championship 2016 /ME Veľké Pole (SK) 18.06.2016
Aprelka Lenel Slovakia has placed on a beautiful 12th place out of 44 running females with the overall assessment of 506 points.
It was also the most successful Slovak Borzoi at Championship 2016. Considering that it was 4th coursing in her life and Aprelka is still collecting experience, is it an amazing result. I love her so much!!!
