Written by
The Clube do Podengo Portugues held their 26th Portuguese Podengo Monografica, the annual Breed Speciality Show in Caldas de Rainha, Portugal on 7th June.

BIS - Wire medio, Rosario’s Scot Da Vinheira

The Clube do Podengo Portugues held their 26th Portuguese Podengo Monografica, the annual Breed Speciality Show in Caldas de Rainha, Portugal on 7th June. BIS judge, Luis Pinto-Teixeira’s choice for the coveted title of ‘Best in Show’ was the wire medio, Rosario’s Scot Da Vinheira, sent through by breed judge, Henrique Passadinhas.

Included amongst the international visitors to the show were committee members and officers from the Northern Portuguese Podengo Association, who were once again made to feel extremely welcome by their hosts. The British contingent, along with their other European counterparts were cordially invited to the dinner which traditionally follows the show, where guests are treated to sample local wines and dishes from the region and shared a glass of champagne to celebrate the meeting of Podengo enthusiasts from around the world.

Another interesting, enjoyable and truly inspirational weekend spent in the company of friends old and new and of course Podengos! Reserve Best in Show went to the exquisite Smooth Pequeno bitch, Grand Ch. Geleia Da Praia do Ribatejo who was Best of Breed Smooth Pequeno owned and shown by Teresa Macedo, wife of the late Luis Macedo.

This 5 year old girl was BOB in the smooth Pequenos judged by Luis Gorjao Henriques. Best Veteran in Show was no stranger to top honours. Miguel Sabino’s home bred wire pequeno male, Ch. Umbigo de Viamonte won the Veteran Male Class and eventual BVIS today.

The honour of Best Puppy in Show went to another smooth pequeno owned and bred by Jose, Luis and Pedro Almeida. The eight month old male, Evert Da Quinta Do Saloio beat off the girls in the puppy classes to clinch his top spot on the podium.

Best of Breed in the Wire Pequenos was Grand Ch. Maria Bolota De Vila Cardilio owned and bred by Catarina Alves. Our Dogs were represented by Breed Note writer Angie Pedder, who was able to squeeze plenty of copies of their latest newspaper and additional Crufts Supplements into her suitcase!

The newspaper is always gratefully received at the show and this year was no exception, with all copies snapped up as soon as Angie set them down!
