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.
Multi BIS winner Gr Ch Doc N' Camelot's Heaven Can Wait, Brom (Nash) won BIS at the most important and prestigious show in Italy, Insubria Winner. This well known event in Europe had over 1,500 dogs...
I WAS delighted to be invited back to Denmark for the fifth time to judge the last show of the year in Herning, Denmark on November 1st and 2nd, with an increased entry of over 4,000 dogs over the two days, the second day being the Danish Winners Show and the finals for the years top awards of 2014!
I was honoured and delighted to be invited to judge the Border Collie Club of Denmark’s Champ Show at Vallensbaek where the hospitality couldn’t have been better. Grateful thanks to Secretary Felicia Olsen and her committee for all their help and kindness throughout my stay. Thanks also to my lovely ring steward Julie.
In the evening after judging I was taken by Felicia and Ina Jorgensen to the Spisestedet Mosen, a lovely lakeside restaurant where the views were quite breathtaking, a wonderful way to end the day and thaw out from all the wind and rain.
When I first saw the brochure of this new show I was thinking that there expectations were a bit high. The brochure and entry form for the show promised 12,000 visitors and 1,500 dogs for a CAC show.
The showground looked very promising - 18,000 square metres - amid a green area, thus the name “The Green Dog Show”.
Best in Show at the European show in Brno last weekend was the Wire Fox Terrier, Ch King Arthur Van Foliny Home, expertly handled and presented by Warren Bradley from Wales. This dog is owned by Victor Malzoni from Brazil and on the same day, Victor also took Best in Show at Midland Counties in the UK with Ch Travella Striking Steel, Wire Fox Terrier. Quite a double!
The Czech Republic in the heart of Europe hosted this years European Dog Show in the city of Brno.
