Lovanium celebrates its 25th anniversary

The Lovaniumtrophy has the reputation of being a show that attracts a lot of hunting dogs and breeds. If you want to see some rare breeds of Groups 6 & 7, than you'll have a big chance to see some. This year there was an Epagneul de Pont-Audemer, a Griffon Bleu de Gascogne, and an Erdely Kopo, or Transylvanian Hound.

Double Show in Torino

The Italian Torino, or Turin as it is known in Great Britain, is the third largest and most important city in Italy, after Rome and Milan. Here is the centre of Italian car manufacturing and the main centre for Fiat. The city is in North West Italy, the capital city of the Piemonte region at the foot of the Alps, the Po River steps out from the hills to the lowlands here.

Turin is a nice city with a typical downtown, and with a lot of green areas in the city. Two shows were held here over the weekend of the 5th & 6th of July. The Mondovi International Show with 995 entries was held on Saturday, and the Torino International Show (the 81st) with 1,347 entries  was held on Sunday. The show was held in the Lignotto Fiere Oval, a huge show hall,  both sides of the hall were glass, which meant a lot of natural light in the hall, but thankfully for a July Italian day, the hall was fully air conditioned. Unfortunately there wasn’t enough carpet in the rings, some of them just had a tape of carpet and some dogs were sliding about.

Lisbon International Show

Michael Forte in Lisbon

 

I am just back from a wonderful weekend at the International Lisbon show.

Because of the warm weather the show committee decided to try a new starting time, 5pm in the evening, when the weather would be cooler, and indeed, it worked well the entry was up by nearly 13%; quite an achievement in this day and age.
