It was an immense pleasure and great honour for me to judge Best in Show and decide on the winner of the VDH European Dog Show. As always, the show was excellently run and thousands of visitors enjoyed the exhibition. I want to express many thanks to all the group judges who sent dogs of such high quality in the ring. Here are my three placed dogs:

My Best in Show dog was the Welsh Corgi Pembroke "Andvol Pinkerton", owner Mrs Olga Shuvalova from Moscow - Group Judge Carla Molinari, Portugal. Shown in the best condition the Corgi was professionally handled to his very best advantage, he is soundly constructed all over which he demonstrated by his effortless and parallel movement. A breathtaking and outstanding winner.

The second place went to the Leonberger "Amicus Antonius", owner N. Kuharkaya, St. Petersburg - Group Judge Walter Schicker, Germany . This dog excelled in perfect physique, sound functionality, colour and quality of coat. A real exception of the breed.

The Scottish Terrier "Filisite Brash Celebration", owner Valentina Popova, Moscow, turned out to be third - Group Judge Ronnie Irving, GB. As it was really hot in the hall the victorious dog did not really show all his qualities that day.
