BIS at Wels in Austria last weekend was Maya Shtirbu’s Shih Tzu, Ch Blue Diamond, (aka Jimmy), bred by Ilana Lecher and handled and groomed by Javier Gonzalez Mendikote. BIS judge was Mrs Carla Molinari, (Portugal) group judge Mrs Heidi Kirschbihler (left) & breed judge Mr Sean Delmar (right) from Ireland pictured with Elisabeth Manner the Secretary of the Austrian Kennel Club.
THE International dog show was held in Salzburg again, on 27th & 28th April, after one skipping year when the Salzburg city was a host of World dog show 2012.
One of the oldest dog shows in Europe is organised by one of the oldest local Kennel Clubs in Austria (the first show was 1912!). It is interesting to note that the Club was led by an Austrian legend, a well-know all round judge Mrs Steffi Kirschbichler since 1973, and her equal known daughter, a judge herself Mrs Heidi Kirschbichler took over later on.
