SKY ‘in the purple’ at Westminster

Written by

The climax of the 138th Westminster Dog Show saw seven superb dogs enter the arena in Madison Square Garden to be judged by Ms Betty Regina Leininger, supremely elegant in an emperor purple evening gown, before an extremely animated audience.

They consisted of an Irish Water Spaniel, Portuguese Water Dog, Bloodhound, Standard Poodle, Wire Fox Terrier, Cardigan Welsh Corgi & Miniature Pinscher. As is now customary Reserve Best In Show was announced first and, to much approval from the spectators, the Standard Poodle, GCH Brighton Lakeridge Encore was called out to the Reserve BIS spot. After an almost theatrical pause during which the noise could literally have taken the roof off, the BIS judge, Betty Leininger announced her chosen Best In Show as the Wire Fox Terrier, GCH Afterall Painting The Sky, co-owned by Victor Malzoni Jr, Torie Steele, Scott & Mary Olund and Diane Ryan, handled as always by Gabriel Rangel.

Amsterdam Winners 2013

Written by

The 124th Amsterdam All Winners dog show was itself a winner in deepest December at the Rai Centre in Holland, with all the Christmas trimmings!

For anyone who does not know the European scene or Holland specifically, this is their Crufts dog show, their Westminster…the biggest they hold in the Netherlands. Normally held over two days in late November, the organisers decided to move from their traditional date to accommodate an extra days showing and in order to facilitate a transition to a better hall. The extra day became the National Show on Friday offering CACIB’s or FCI versions of Challenge Certificates in the UK. The move to the better hall was from the older Europa Hall into the more modern side of the Rai. (Pronounced ‘Rye’…) This typical Expo or event centre is on the outskirts of the historical city of Amsterdam, obviously known for its infamous ‘Red Light’ district and liberal attitude to smoking a certain type of plant, but equally one of the great European capitals with superb sights and culture if you ever want to mix dog showing and an interesting weekend away.

Maastricht 2013, a great success

Written by

For the first time in Dutch history, Maastricht was allowed to organise two international all breed shows in one weekend.

The entries and the organisation were a great success. Nearly 2,000 dogs in 2012, Maastricht hosted over 3,600 dogs in 2013. With a special camper location in the direct neighbourhood and over 800 hotel rooms booked in Maastricht and surroundings the show was also an economic success for the region.

Written by

VDH LV Nord held its two day international show on the 1st  and 2nd of June 2013. The entry of 2,250 dogs was a bit less than last year.

The Malta Experience Featured

Written by

HAVING received an exciting invitation to judge in Malta, it was a fortunate opportunity for Ann and myself to have a short winter break.

When you think of Malta, you think of warm weather. During my stay to judge the Malta Canine Society Championship Show held over the weekend of Saturday and Sunday, the 9th and 10th of February, the weather was reminiscent of home, being cold, windy and showers with only the odd glimpse of sun.

Helsinki & Finnish Winner Shows

Written by
Every fifth Household in Finland has a dog. For many Finns, their dog is not only a member of their family, but a whole lifestyle with shows, training, sports trials and being involved in canine clubs locally or nationally. Agility, hunting and obedience training are among the most popular activities besides attending dog shows. Over 145,000 enthusiasts took part in different trials in the year 2011. Finnish Kennel Club is very active in promoting responsible dog ownership and proud to announce that out of 600,000 dogs in Finland about 450,000 are purebred.

A world record for the largest FCI one-day show was set by the Finnish Kennel Club on Saturday, December 8, 2012 at the Helsinki Winner International Dog Show that had entry of a little over 7,500 dogs and broken on Sunday December 9 at Finnish Winner International Dog Show with entry of over 8,100 dogs that competed in conformation rings for the prestigious titles.
