This year, once again, we travelled to Birmingham, England to take part in the largest and oldest dog show in the world, Crufts 2023.
Only Dimi was entered, even though all three of our pups qualified. Mia is still getting back in shape after having puppies in October, and Ela could not be entered due to the conflict of interest with the judge, Mr Cochetti, who is also her breeder.
Dimi performed very well and was awarded VHC (Very Highly Commended) on a day with 210 long coat chihuahuas entered. I am so proud of my Dreamy boy!

We received Dimi's excellent test results today:
Lafora epilapsy: N3/N3
Dimi is not affected or a carrier of either one of these diseases!
PRA-prcd retinal atrophy leads to the progressive degeneration of eye cells. Eventually, affected dogs lose eyesight.
Lafora epilepsy causes seizures, with strong muscle spasms and often leads to dementia in dogs. It is hereditary, there is no cure, and in most cases, it is fatal.

February, we welcomed our new boy Dreamy for Right Royal s Lipetskih Ozer into the family. Since then, he's finished his CIB-J and became the Junior Champion of Montenegro, Kosovo, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Federation BiH, as well as the Balkans.
Our girl Misty Meadow's Don't Drive Me Mad rocked her junior career, winning 5 Junior Champion titles. In the big girl classes, she's already become the Champion of Albania, North Macedonia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Montenegro. She is a Club Champion, Grand Champion, and CIB candidate. We hope to finish her CIB this year!
Hermione Minha Alegria was a star in the adult classes, getting a Reserve at Crufts 2022!! She also achieved 29x CAC, 11x CACIB, 8x BOB and 10x BOS. In the spring, she'll be just 1 CACIB away from her CIB!
Most importantly, in October 2022, Hermione gave us two lovely babies Amundsen and Amaretto, sired by the Junior European Winner and JBOB Vivat Victor Bring Me Love. The babies are absolutely amazing and I'm very excited to see what they achieve!
Right Royal Kennel wishes everyone Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

As newbies, we weren't very ambitious. The competition was huge - in total, 170 long-coat chihuahuas competed! However, Mia managed to charm the judge and obtained a Reserve (4th place). She is only the 3rd Czech-bred chihuahua to ever place at Crufts!
We are thrilled with her result. Not only are UK dog shows very different to FCI-organized shows, but this show is the most prestigious show in the world. Mia, her award and the judge's comments amaze us!
