BIS on Day 1 in Denmark at the big DKK show in Herning which was judged by Nina Karlsdotter (Sweden) and her winner was the Samoyed (Samoyedskaya Sabaka) Cabaka's Kiss The Rain, owned by Gitte Morell and Nana Maibøll Qvist.
Top Spaniel in Denmark is the American Cocker Spaniel, BIS winning Multi Champion Galaksi This Is Me. He is two and a half years old, he is also Top Gundog and Top Dog All Breeds 4 in 2014. In 2013 he won the BBE Group at Eukanuba. He is bred and owned in Denmark by Lotte & Michael Kristensen.
With his BIS at the first show of the season Esmann has been leading all year, even if the gorgeous bullmastiff got a little too close at the end!! Ch Bubbleton Feel The Spirit was bred by Jesper Ravn & Klaus Andersen and is owned by Steen Vonge & Jesper Ravn.
I WAS delighted to be invited back to Denmark for the fifth time to judge the last show of the year in Herning, Denmark on November 1st and 2nd, with an increased entry of over 4,000 dogs over the two days, the second day being the Danish Winners Show and the finals for the years top awards of 2014!
I was honoured and delighted to be invited to judge the Border Collie Club of Denmark’s Champ Show at Vallensbaek where the hospitality couldn’t have been better. Grateful thanks to Secretary Felicia Olsen and her committee for all their help and kindness throughout my stay. Thanks also to my lovely ring steward Julie.
In the evening after judging I was taken by Felicia and Ina Jorgensen to the Spisestedet Mosen, a lovely lakeside restaurant where the views were quite breathtaking, a wonderful way to end the day and thaw out from all the wind and rain.
WHAT an amazing evening we had!
On February 22 it was time again for Denmark’s most prestigious show of the year, the Winners Show. This is a Gala Show filled with glitter and glamour with the qualified top winning dogs from last year. It has been arranged by Ulf Fjelsted Jorgensen every year since 1981, with good help from his wife, Lotte Jorgensen.
