We wish all our friends and Manjuno's a thoughtful christmas eve!
When you take a dog to you, you know that you will not have him forever, that he will have to go one time. But this moment, you dont want to
realize it, you dont want to think about it and you want to repress it far away and than, suddenly, it hit you like a slap in the face and
one is helpless, one freezes, one cannot bear the pain.
Suddenly and unexpected I had to go with Julie on her last way - a bursted liver tumor - we were helpless, I could only let her be released
from her pain, was already breathlessing her life. It was horrible - it is horrible without Julie. I miss her so much. She was my first dog,
my first Cocker, my clown, my so special girl.
Rest in Peace, Julie!
Pettrail Basic1-exam Emilia
Covid19 made it nearly impossible, because our exam would have been in lockdown, but our trainers made things possible and organised everything
so that exam could be on monday before start of lockdown. I was a bit nervous, I would have want this two more trainings in that week to get myself
more savety, but I had not a lot of time to think, as the exam was than in two days and one thing was or is clear, Emilia is very sovereign in working
and it was than like that. Emila passed the exam with success, she was searching determined and on track and found immediately. Its such a pleasure
to watch her, when she works with her bustling movement having so much fun with it. Im super proud of my girl!
Judge for English Cocker Spaniels
A dream is coming true! After 2,5 years of education and several pretests, I passed successfully the final practical exam
for English Cocker Spaniels end of september on the international show in Tulln. Now the official publication was made in the
magazin of the ÖKV. So I can call myself now a national judge for English Cocker Spaniels. I'm so happy and proud for reaching this goal and
I will be more than happy to judge my so much loved breed in the future.
This photoshooting I made together with Prodog Photography (Mak Dodan) in september. It shows my passion for this breed quite good.
Autumnshooting with the oldest ones
I love the autumn with his colors. This time I took Julie (12,5 years old), Joy (11 years old), Juno (8 years old) and Famie (6,5 years old) to the school,

Unbelievable, how time flies! In a week first puppy will move into his new home. The L's are already 9 weeks old and the M's are 7,5 weeks old.

First show after long break
Because of Corona there were long time no shows, the more I was looking forward to this first show in Slovakia outdoor, very well organised with lots of
space and of course masks. As I was invited to a wedding of a friend on saturday, we attended the shows on friday and sunday.
On friday Maggie got Junior-BOB, we were very happy about it as it was her first show in juniorclass without any training and it was a bit chaotic,
but Maggie scored with her excellent type. Emilia got Exc3 and Jo-Ann Exc2 resCAC. On sunday we had more successs, Maggie again got Junior-BOB and totally
unexpected BOS, Emila and Jo-Ann won their classes with CAC and Jo-Ann got the CACIB. We are quite happy about our lovely wins.
8th Manjuno's Meeting
Despite of Corona I decided to make a meeting this year, in form of a walking in Wildpark Ernstbrunn and Im quite happy that it worked and
we could spend a wonderful day together.
We walked in the shadows of the park with very hot weather, made a picknick where we talked a lot and the final of the day was for our cockers the
chance to swam in a little lake to cool down.
Here were Susi and Paul with Healy (Manjuno's Autumn Bless) and Charlie (Manjuno's English Style), Julia with Elliot (Manjuno's Exclusive Design), Katja and Gregor with
Passion (Manjuno's Deep Passion), Bianca and Herwig with Dandy (Manjuno's Dandy Delight) and Tatjana with Sweetie (Manjuno's Bittersweet) and of course my
Cocker gang :-)
Thank you all for this wonderful day!
In january I started to trail with my boys Jonny and Darky, at 1st Austrian Pettrailorganisation and we quickly found out, that
we totally love this kind of work. Boys so much wanted to work at each training and its a fantastic kind of activity for the brain.
First we started to training with trail for a missed/hidden person, but quickly we continued to trail for missed/hidden animal (dog).
Boys are doing great, so I decided to make the first Basis-1-exam with them and they got this exam with success. As boys so much like this
kind of work, I decided to start with Emilia too and Im fascinated, she is such a clever girl, she immediately knew what to do and she is
working very good and quick.

Mega-Weekend in Timisoara / Rumänien
A very crazy weekend is behind me. Friday morning I started the trip to Timisoara, Romania with Jonny, Darky, Emilia and Jo-Ann who got her season some days before
to compete on CAC-Show on friday afternoon, Cacib-Show on saturday morning, Champion of Champions saturday afternoon and another Cacib-Show on sunday morning. Driving
went well with just some small traffic jams around Budapest, as suddenly my car made a clamor in one of the traffic jams and I could just roll it to the area of street
reconstruction. The sound was terrible. So I called austrian automobilclub, they organised that from hungarian automobilclub someone came to tow me to the next mechanic.
Whilst I had the feeling to wait a felt endless time I tried to organise a rented car with the austrian mobilclub, as I had the feeling that my car isnt to use anymore.
It was not easy as noone wanted to give me a car for a drive to Romania. With help of hungarian automobilclub they finally found someone who was really nice
and brought me the biggest car he has to the mechanic, where I immediately put all my stuff in it and drove like hell to Romania. And I really made it, 5 minutes after
I arrived, I had to stand in the ring. Huch, done. Some probably will think, Im crazy, why I didnt turn back home, but this journey with this 4 shows was quite expensive,
and when I want something, than I always find a solution. I spent a lovely weekend finally in Timisoara and we had big success, during mechanic found out that
the timing belt in my car is broken and the cylinder heads had problem too, so that they transfered my car to a specialist in Budapest, where repair took 1,5 weeks.
I could organise that I could keep the rented car this 1,5 weeks, drive home with it and bring it back than. Thanks to austrian automobilclub I had to pay just 80 Euro for
this, next to the costs for repairing my car.
So, now to our results:
Jonny won his class with CAC on first day, got CACIB, Best of Breed and Best of Group 2 on second day, won Champion of Champions with BOB and is now Romanian Champion.
Darky too got CAC on first day, resCACIB on second day and finally on last day CACIB and Best of Breed. He is now Rumanian Champion Cum Laudae and he finally has fullfilled
all conditions for International Champion. Emilia got Junior-CAC on first and last day and is now Romanian Juniurchampion. Jo-Ann got CAC on all 3 days, CACIB on both international
show days and too BOS on all 3 days. She too is now Romanian Champion.
