It was a pleasure to judge at the Hong Kong Kennel Club. The show itself was the 174th All Breed Back to Back Championship Show. There was an entry of 219 and judging started shortly after 11am and finished after 8pm following the photo call.
It was an excellent venue and a very supportive attendance. I was met at the show by Secretary Bonnie Yeu. The show was judged in two rings. Myself and President of the Malasian Kennel Association, Larry Yuen both judged all seven Groups separately. Many of our Group winners proved to be the same, including the Best In Show winner.
This was the Kerry Blue, HK Ch. Hotspice’s Forever Blue Jeans, owned by Mr F Leung. Reserve Best In Show was the Peke, Derjon Jester Gossip owned by Mr D Tsung and Mr J Lew. Another notable winner was the Utility Group Winner, the Miniature Poodle, HK/CA/AM Ch. Thaipet Black Gem Of Tameral, owner Mr F. Leung. Handled superbly by Mr William Lee.
The previous evening, myself and my wife Sue enjoyed a fine dinner with Chairman, Nelson H.W. Lam and co judge Larry Yuen. The hospitality was the best I have experienced and special thanks must go to Winita Yeung, who looked after Sue and I so well. A truly memorable appointment. Report & Pictures
