Boxer Boys Top Champions Event

Written by

The Green Isle Hotel in Clondalkin on the west outskirts of Dublin once again played host to the Dublin Dog Show Society promotion Champion of Champions final on Saturday January 5th which saw the Champion Stakes class winners from 2012 come together to challenge for the overall title and to find an overall winner 

The inimitable Hans Van Ben Berg was invited to travel from the Netherlands to judge the event and as always his quirky approach to his job was very entertaining as are his stories of previous appointments.

The Green Isle Hotel in Clondalkin on the west outskirts of Dublin once again played host to the Dublin Dog Show Society promotion Champion of Champions final on Saturday January 5th which saw the Champion Stakes class winners from 2012 come together to challenge for the overall title and to find an overall winner 

The inimitable Hans Van Ben Berg was invited to travel from the Netherlands to judge the event and as always his quirky approach to his job was very entertaining as are his stories of previous appointments.

From the 29 listed qualifying spots, two exhibits had been dual qualifiers as both Joan Duffus’ Samoyed Ch/Am Ch McMagic’s The Candyman of Pebbles Run and Ashling Connolly’s Bichon Frise Ch/GB Ch Ashmair Double Act had topped the Champion Stakes at two championship shows during the year. 22 exhibits took part and one exhibitor, Lynda Matthews had the distinction of having three of her Ailesbury team qualified. Hans whittled down the qualifiers to his six finalists to be re-examined after the dinner was served. Making the final six were Ashling Connolly’s Bichon Frise Ch/GB Ch Ashmair Double Act who had qualified at Hibernian in May under Joyce O’Connor and in June at Swords under Laura Cox. Lynda and Colin Matthews Borzoi Ch Donskoi Asmodey who qualified at Cork in June under Sean Carroll and who was handled by Stephen Minogue. Triona Ni She’s Dobermann Pinscher Ch Farentino Wot A Thriller at Ruholfia who qualified at Bangor and North Down in August under Colette Muldoon. Jimmy Duggan’s Siberian Husky Ch Bedarra Cold Paws Warm Heart for Leorient who was qualified by Diane Ritchie Stewart at the ILKA in July and was handled by Anita Duggan.

Paul Keenan and Darren Griffin’s Boxer Ch Walkend Boy at Bessbox who qualified under Stephen Minogue at Kilkenny in June and Peter and Jacquie Embleton’s Bernese Mountain Dog Ch/GB Ch Bernemcourt Sirocco who was sent forward by Bernie Ladd at Dundalk in July. From the 6 finalists, Hans chose the Boxer and Siberian Husky to make another few rounds of the ring and awarded the top spot to the Boxer 'Harry' with 'Flint' the Sibe taking Runner up.
