The climax of the 138th Westminster Dog Show saw seven superb dogs enter the arena in Madison Square Garden to be judged by Ms Betty Regina Leininger, supremely elegant in an emperor purple evening gown, before an extremely animated audience.
They consisted of an Irish Water Spaniel, Portuguese Water Dog, Bloodhound, Standard Poodle, Wire Fox Terrier, Cardigan Welsh Corgi & Miniature Pinscher. As is now customary Reserve Best In Show was announced first and, to much approval from the spectators, the Standard Poodle, GCH Brighton Lakeridge Encore was called out to the Reserve BIS spot. After an almost theatrical pause during which the noise could literally have taken the roof off, the BIS judge, Betty Leininger announced her chosen Best In Show as the Wire Fox Terrier, GCH Afterall Painting The Sky, co-owned by Victor Malzoni Jr, Torie Steele, Scott & Mary Olund and Diane Ryan, handled as always by Gabriel Rangel.
The 124th Amsterdam All Winners dog show was itself a winner in deepest December at the Rai Centre in Holland, with all the Christmas trimmings!
For anyone who does not know the European scene or Holland specifically, this is their Crufts dog show, their Westminster…the biggest they hold in the Netherlands. Normally held over two days in late November, the organisers decided to move from their traditional date to accommodate an extra days showing and in order to facilitate a transition to a better hall. The extra day became the National Show on Friday offering CACIB’s or FCI versions of Challenge Certificates in the UK. The move to the better hall was from the older Europa Hall into the more modern side of the Rai. (Pronounced ‘Rye’…) This typical Expo or event centre is on the outskirts of the historical city of Amsterdam, obviously known for its infamous ‘Red Light’ district and liberal attitude to smoking a certain type of plant, but equally one of the great European capitals with superb sights and culture if you ever want to mix dog showing and an interesting weekend away.
