FABOULOUS WEEK-END IN PORTO
I just turned back from one of the best organized dog shows ever which I expected from Portugese kennel club as one of the best organiser in the kingdom of dogs! Here are some numbers to prove it!
4.688 dogs were entered in 2 days!

Affenpinscher ‘Tricky Ricky’ wins EWC 2014 in Amsterdam
Amsterdam, December 2014 -The Eukanuba World Challenge 2014 came to a stirring finale on Saturday evening, December 13th, in Amsterdam’s RAI Centre before a packed international crowd. From a stunning field of 12 finalists BIS judge Jorgen Hindse, FCI Europe President and President of the Danish Kennel Club, selected ‘Ch. Tricky Ricky from Yarrow Hi-Tech’, the Affenpinscher male from Indonesia representing the World Dog Show 2014, as his “Best of the Best” Eukanuba world Challenge Champion 2014.
I was delighted to be invited to Jyvaskyla in Finland, and while I have judged in 22 different countries, this was my first visit to Finland (the snow was a bit of a shock to the system).
The show had drawn a huge entry of well over 5,000 dogs over the two days! The judging panel contained judges from many different countries. The UK was well represented with Mrs Meg Purnell-Capenter, Michael Gadsby, Des Jenkins, Ronald James, Colin Reed and daughter Melanie Reed-Peck, Grace Goodwin, and it was Graces BOB Apso that finished BIS.
For the second consecutive time the Malta Kennel Club held a Double International Show (Crufts qualifier and CAC/CACIB) on Saturday 29th and Sunday, 30th November, 2014.
We are proud to say that this is the only International Show on the island registering such a high number of entries, and which attracts a significant amount of foreign entries, thus classifying it as a show of high standards.
