FABOULOUS WEEK-END IN PORTO
I just turned back from one of the best organized dog shows ever which I expected from Portugese kennel club as one of the best organiser in the kingdom of dogs! Here are some numbers to prove it!
4.688 dogs were entered in 2 days!
MANY THANKS to Jon-Atle Andresen, Rune Huseby, Ann Wiseman Standal, Gry Live Gulliksen and all the team at Sandefjord Hundeklubb for their great event on the 17th & 18th of January in Norway.
It was my first time visiting and judging in Norway and I found the country beautiful, the people very friendly and the dogs very good.
Affenpinscher ‘Tricky Ricky’ wins EWC 2014 in Amsterdam
Amsterdam, December 2014 -The Eukanuba World Challenge 2014 came to a stirring finale on Saturday evening, December 13th, in Amsterdam’s RAI Centre before a packed international crowd. From a stunning field of 12 finalists BIS judge Jorgen Hindse, FCI Europe President and President of the Danish Kennel Club, selected ‘Ch. Tricky Ricky from Yarrow Hi-Tech’, the Affenpinscher male from Indonesia representing the World Dog Show 2014, as his “Best of the Best” Eukanuba world Challenge Champion 2014.
I was delighted to be invited to Jyvaskyla in Finland, and while I have judged in 22 different countries, this was my first visit to Finland (the snow was a bit of a shock to the system).
The show had drawn a huge entry of well over 5,000 dogs over the two days! The judging panel contained judges from many different countries. The UK was well represented with Mrs Meg Purnell-Capenter, Michael Gadsby, Des Jenkins, Ronald James, Colin Reed and daughter Melanie Reed-Peck, Grace Goodwin, and it was Graces BOB Apso that finished BIS.
For the second consecutive time the Malta Kennel Club held a Double International Show (Crufts qualifier and CAC/CACIB) on Saturday 29th and Sunday, 30th November, 2014.
We are proud to say that this is the only International Show on the island registering such a high number of entries, and which attracts a significant amount of foreign entries, thus classifying it as a show of high standards.
4,518 dogs were entered for the USA's most prestigious show, the AKC/ Eukanuba Championships held in Orlando, Florida on 13th/14th December where BIS received a cash prize of £50,000. Best in Show, judged by Ron Meneker, was the Skye Terrier, Grand Ch. Cragsmoor Good Time Charli, owned by Victor Malzoni, andleerd bu Larry Cornelius and bred by Zaphiris and Stander.
