Peggy & I had a very nice invitation to judge at a CAC National Group 1 & Group 8 show in the town of Lohja, Finland  on the 8th of June, 2014.The show was held on a lakeside in the town and with glorious weather and setting the whole event was first class.

We stayed in the Rantasipty Kylpyla Spa Hotel in a lovely wooded area of Siuntion, the facilities, food and the hotel staff were all to a very high standard it was a perfect week end.

Peggy was to judge the Shetland Sheepdogs and the Lancashire Heelers, however, because of the number allowed by the Finnish KC to judge per day, the entry was well over, so the Shetland Sheepdog males and the Lancashire Heelers were allocated to other judges.

I was very honoured and privileged to be invited to judge Norwich Terriers at the combined Finnish Norfolk & Norwich Club Open Show in March this year.
I set off early on the Saturday morning from Manchester and arrived in Helsinki around 3.30pm Finnish time. I made my way to the hotel, 10 minutes away from the airport, and awaited my co judge, Dot Britten who was to judge Norfolks at the same show. 


At the recent huge winter shows in Helsinki, Our Dogs asked Kari Järvinen to look back at the Nordic Show held in Helsinki in December and forward to the World Show in August

Svetlana Valoueva asked the questions:

 

First of all I would like to thank you for such a great start to this December weekend and for giving me the opportunity to get first hand information about the upcoming World event that will be held in Helsinki in August of 2014.Can you review the Winner shows and explain how they came about?


It was a great pleasure judging the Porvoo 60th Anniversary Show and I would like to thank Kirsi Lankola and her team for putting on an excellently run show.

The showground was laid out very well although a little spread out. The standard of the dogs were of a high quality and my group winner went to the Cairn.

BIS went to the gorgeous Lhasa Apso Chic Choix Cleopatra Eurydice (pictured above) owned by Piia Helistölä-Laurila.

What a great show this was, and what an honour and privilege it was to be invited to judge this Spaniel Speciality show in Hyvinkaa of the 5th of October. First class organisation, wonderful hospitality and the sportsmanlike manner the exhibitors took the judges decisions at this prestigious show. Next years World Show will be well worth a visit.

My thanks to my two ring stewards, Viveca Lindqvist and Marianne Dolmatoff who kept me on the straight and narrow and kept up with writing my critiques superbly.
