My soulmate, my everything, Alonso


'Delighted to have the opportunity to judge this one,

I have judged the breed since 1969 and this one ranks with the best that I have judged at home in the UK and in many other countries,

his head properties, athleticism and power and strength are exactly what the breed standard requires.

A dog that can top the breed and win groups anywhere in the world.''

From the danish news-site dogs.dk (hunden.dk) !!

Bullmastiff conquers at Roskilde
Today's victory at the Danish Kennel Club's international show went to a Danish bred and Finnish co-owned bullmastiff.
The two year old bullmastiff Librrani's High Performance Alonso won Best in Show at the Kennel Club's international show in Roskilde. The dog is bred by Imran Durrani and Mette Libstrup Sørensen, Kennel Librrani, and since last year he has been co-owned by the Finnish Satu Timlin and Viivi Alaluusua. The dog lives with the latter. Viivi does not want to breed but loves showing and is co-owner of a handful of dogs, which she shows.

In addition to being Nordic, Danish and Finnish Champion Librrani 's High Performance Alonso is also champion in seven other countries. He has been shown at a number of exhibitions in Denmark and was also Best in Show on the international show on Bornholm last year. At the Danish TOP dog competition in 2013, he took 11th place, while his half-brother Librrani's Freestyle Tango took 3rd place.
Librrani's High Performance Alonso was also a part of Librranis breeding group, which won Best in show.

Imran Durrani and Mette Libstrup Sørensen have had Bullmastiffs for 14 years and had their first litter 11 years ago. Their breeding is not particularly extensive - 10 litters/approx. 60 puppies - but based on a rather exclusive breeding primarily including French, American, UK and Finnish lines.
Imran and Mette has five dogs at home while they have about 20 co-owned dogs living with different families.

Other BIS results:
no. 2 Pharaoh Hound Faouziah 's Faramir owned by Jenny Hall, Sweden
no. 3 Kerry Blue Terrier Shyloch Qosmos owned by Helge Kvivesen, Norway
no. 4 Puli Bubbleton Feel The Spirit owned by Steen Vonge, Denmark

21.7. Sunny day at Suomenlinna

Suomenlinna is a historical maritime fortress and one of Finland's most popular sight. It is nice place to visit on sunny summer days and also good place for young dogs to learn to stay with lot of peoples etc. We traveled there by train and ferry, and also visited in the Helsinki's biggest marketplace, Kauppatori, to get even more training to our puppies. In Suomenlinna we had all day long picnic with some of our dog friends. Thank you Riikka Reikko, Marinka Ashworth, Henni Lehtiranta and little boys Arttu and Miska for the super relaxed and funny day! Need to do this again, absoloutely! (all the photos by Riikka Reikko)
