BIS at the 2014 EKKA, aka the Royal Queensland Show, was the Australian Shepherd bitch, Sup Ch Ellagant Pretty N Blue, handled by Veronica Royston and owned by Ellagant Kennels.
I thoroughly enjoyed my trip to Cape Town to judge the Western Cape Staffordshire Bull Terrier Club’s 19th Championship Show on March 1st, 2014.
There were 60 dogs entered with only 5 absent. I understand this was the best entry they have had for a number of years.
Continuing Our Dogs look at dog shows world wide here is the BIS at the Shunde All Breed Championship Dog Show in China.
Poodle, CN Ch. DQ of Kang Yi Shi Shang Kennel (FCI) , pet name DQ and is just less than 13 months of age. He already has his China title, and is a multi - BIG and five times BIS.
Organiser Franki Leung told OUR DOGS: ‘Considering his age, this dog did a wonderful job! His owner/ breeder/ handler is Ms Kang Yi, a first generation groomer in China.
Yes I know, George Foreman and Mohammed Ali got there before me with that headline a few years ago, but it just seemed appropriate.
What this ‘Thrilla’ fact turned out to be was a whole circuit of dog shows staged on the fifth floor of a swish Manila shopping mall, held over four days and organised by the Philippines Canine Club. Four of the shows were their own, 73rd show right through to the 76th on Sunday. The other shows gave people in the Far East the chance to win at the shows of the Kennel Clubs from …wait for it…. Montenegro, Azerbaijan, Moldova, Cyprus, El Salvador and Costa Rica! Yes the world of dogs is truly international nowadays.
