This traditional and popular show has got its name from an old song. Kotka is a harbour city on the southeastern coast of Finland. The song tells about a sailor who meets a girl in a saloon and asks her to dance with him.
The traditional Kuopio August show was this time only a one two-day international show. Every second year it is a three-day cluster with three different shows, called the Sawo Shows. Savo is the name of the county.
The traditional Lahti spring show was the biggest show in Finland this year – so far. In many other traditional shows the entry figures have gone down, but the Lahti show was now bigger than last year, 4,400 entered dogs for this two-day international event.
The traditional Turku January International Show was named Top Dog Show this year. Every second year this group of local clubs hold Top Dog Show, while every second year another combination of clubs have a Winter Dog Show.
The Helsinki Double Show was a spectacular end to the chain of Scandinavian main shows. It started in Denmark in November, at Herning, then there was Oslo, or actually Lilleström in Norway where there was also the Nordic Winner show, then Swedish Winner Show at Stockholm and the last and the biggest one of them all, the Helsinki weekend.
The outdoor show season starts at the beginning of May, but the Tampere International Show on the second weekend of May was still held indoors. The spring has been late this year, the weather has been very cold and we have got snow and hail even in the south of Finland.
