Eugene Yerusalimsky - R.I.P

Featured Written by Our Dogs

OUR DOGS are sad to report the death of EUGENE YERUSALIMSKY, the founder of the Russian Kennel Federation.

Eugene recently judged BIS at the big Eurasia dog show held in Moscow at the start of May but sadly passed away in hospital over the weekend. Eugene was a man of many parts and as well as his involvement in dogs, he had musical talents and even had his own CD.

His self-published book on canine structure and movement has been sold around the world for a number of years and he enjoyed meeting dog people on the OUR DOGS stand when he signed copies of the book at major dog events.

Many tributes have been paid to him on social media led by the current president of the RKF, Vladimir Semenovich Golubev. The death of Eugene comes quickly have the passing of another top dog person in Russia, Revaz Khomasuridze. The FCI also posted a tribute on their Facebook page.

Oleg Bochkov, publisher of the well-known Russian dog magazine HOTdog said,

“In Russia, another big canine, organizer and reformer, gifted with many talents and fully acquired friends and enemies has passed away.

He fully shared his knowledge, views, emotions with all of us, with his latest texts coming out in our Yearbook. His article was about his kennel, about the path of the breeder, and about Revaz.

Thank you, Evgeny Lvovich, that everyone who was looking for could taste your talent. Rest in peace.”

The canine fraternity in Russia and on the international dog show scene are finding it hard to come to terms with the loss of two great and knowledgeable dog men in quick succession.
