Norway’s biggest show weekend took place from November 14th to 16th.
The weekend started with the Norwegian Winner Show on Friday with a huge entry of over 7,000 dogs from 21 countries in 306 breeds! This was followed by the Nordic Winner on Saturday and Sunday, which, this year, was organised by the Norwegian Kennel Club, so in total the entry was 14,000 dogs in three days in this small town, Lilestrom, just 10 minutes away from Oslo in Norway.
With his BIS at the first show of the season Esmann has been leading all year, even if the gorgeous bullmastiff got a little too close at the end!! Ch Bubbleton Feel The Spirit was bred by Jesper Ravn & Klaus Andersen and is owned by Steen Vonge & Jesper Ravn. He boasts the following titles: International (Int Ch) Danish (Dk Ch), Dutch (Nl ch); Swiss (Ch Ch), Lithuanian (Lt Ch), Swedish (S Ch), Norwegian (N Ch), Finnish (Fi Ch) Nordic (Nord Ch), Czech (Cz Ch), German (VdhCh), Luxembourg (LCh), World Winner 13 & 14, European Winner 13, Danish Eukanuba World Challenge representative 13 & 14 and 10 All Breeds BIS wins with eight Specialty BIS.
MY grateful thanks to the Kennel Club of Spain for the invitation to judge six breeds at their two-day International Championship Show, on October 4th & 5th, held in the lovely arena at Talavera de la Reina (Toledo).
The weather was a cool 82 degrees with hardly a cloud in the sky, so I was fortunate to be provided with an outside ring.
