There were two-days of International Shows organised by the Dog Breeders Association of Northern Estonia, and many breed clubs held their specialty shows on the day when their breeds were not in the ring in the international one.
The Hungarian dog show season started with a long weekend, 4 days, 4 International dog shows, called Winterdogshow, hold on 7-10th of February. The show was in the HUNGEXPO, the Budapest Fair, together with the “Arm, Fishing and Hunting” show.

Time seems to have flown as it does not seem to be one year ago when I was reporting on the Philippines Circuit shows and yet…there we were again, in the Areneta Coliseum in the heart of Manila watching this very special event unfold once more.
