Hungarian Rhapsody! Featured

Written by

BRINGING an eventful week to a close, the top winning OES ‘Jimmy’ was a fitting winner in his home country under BIS judge Tamas Jakkel. This yearsWORLD DOG SHOW had taken place in Budapest against a backdrop of a lively FCI meeting, a new president in the form of Rafael Santiago from Puerto Rico, and a packed programme of breed and club shows, a CACIB show on Wednesday followed by four days of a WORLD DOG SHOW with 18,000 dogs from all over the world.

 A truly international gathering that will be fully covered in the next international edition of OUR DOGS on June 28th, we saw many UK and Irish exhibitors taking honours, many world and group winners known to many, such as the Labrador which had just taken Reserve BIS at Crufts.
The judging panel was a who’s who in dogs and featured Kennel Club Chairman Steve Dean and OUR DOGS own Ronnie Irving. The agreement to agree on FCI judges coming to the UK was signed at the show and a full handover for the next world show in Helsinki took place. That too promises to be a mammoth event but before that we have the European show in Geneva later in August.
The weather was fantastic for the week and the buzz amongst exhibitors seemed positive overall. Brits seen ‘on tour’ included Bath Chairman Bill Browne Cole, Paul and Maria Harding from Manchester, Steve and Tracey Atkinson, Mike Gadsby and Jason Lynn, Neil and Angie Allen and a host of others either judging, showing or viewing!
OUR DOGS will have a full range of views in the WORLD DOG SHOWspecial in four weeks time as we reflect on another busy and successful world show that the Hungarian Kennel Club can be proud of especially when you consider the hardships that had to endure to get to this stage.
