When I first saw the brochure of this new show I was thinking that there expectations were a bit high. The brochure and entry form for the show promised 12,000 visitors and 1,500 dogs for a CAC show. The showground looked very promising - 18,000 square metres - amid a green area, thus the name “The Green Dog Show”.
The Lovaniumtrophy has the reputation of being a show that attracts a lot of hunting dogs and breeds. If you want to see some rare breeds of Groups 6 & 7, than you'll have a big chance to see some. This year there was an Epagneul de Pont-Audemer, a Griffon Bleu de Gascogne, and an Erdely Kopo, or Transylvanian Hound.
As if it was to celebrate its 60th show, 90 more dogs than last year came to Liège, and this brought the total number of entries to 2,035, a new record. Every two years, on Saturday evening, Liège holds it Master Trophy (this was the sixth time), with 22 Champions in competition. Every year Liège always seems to be Belgium's hottest show. I can't remember a chilly Liège show. But that has, of course, also…
BIS at the Show in Wieze, as chosen by BIS Judge Norman Deschuymere (Belgium) was the Hungarian S/H Pointing Dog, Howard v.d. Verre Hoeve, handled by Edwin Lenaerts, owned by Dirk Lenaerts from Belgium.
THIS was the 11th edition of the Golden Groomer in Liege, Belgium on the 19th & 20th of July 2014, and is one of the only grooming competitions held during an international dog show. There was a jury of highly talented international groomers and breed specialists (Mrs Kitty Dekeersgieter, Mrs Caroline Lezier, Mrs Carol Hanson, Mr Luis Martin del Rio, Mr Jean Vion, Mr Sébastien Patient).
Almost a heart attack. That was what happened to the President when he informed everyone how many entries came in in a couple of days prior to closing date. His Secretary told him that they hadn’t even reached 1,000 entries close to entries closing day, but in those last few days the number climbed to 2,094, and that is 37 entries more than last year.
