My Dog Dog Show International Event

Featured Written by

My Dog, Dog Show International Event was held in the Gothina Towers Complex, Gothenburg, Sweden over four days from the 3rd to the 6th January. I was judging over all four days.

This was a quite wonderful event I had been invited to judge over the four days. Peggy was invited by the club as a guest. On day one I had Lancashire Heelers Australian Cattle Dogs, Polish Lowland Sheepdogs, Border Collies, Smooth Collies & Rough Collies.

My Dog, Dog Show International Event was held in the Gothina Towers Complex, Gothenburg, Sweden over four days from the 3rd to the 6th January. I was judging over all four days.

This was a quite wonderful event I had been invited to judge over the four days. Peggy was invited by the club as a guest. On day one I had Lancashire Heelers Australian Cattle Dogs, Polish Lowland Sheepdogs, Border Collies, Smooth Collies & Rough Collies.

Lancs Heelers had 19 on show and I say at the outset all were at a very high standard, awarded excellent placing, temperaments were very good, for the Best of Breed & CC I selected a bitch, Multi Champion Mongrels Yardley York, she was lovely. Best Dog was Mirox Earl Angus Le Beau, from the junior class, I note that the Best of Breed carried the Simonville breeding. Well done.

Australian Cattle Dogs, only one on show, a blue speckled bitch, Working Mates Busy Being Brave. She was very pleasing. I had no hesitation in awarding her Excellent and the CC.

Border Collies had a disappointing entry, only four on show, they all quite pleased, not all Excellent. For Best of Breed I selected a bitch from the intermediate class, Carnivalcandy.

Polish Lowland Sheepdogs, I had five today and all Excellent placing. Temperaments very good. My Best of Breed was a brown coloured bitch who travelled from France, as I later learned, she handled and moved well, Emal Ynnzizins Du Clos de L’Igloo. I liked this one, great on the move with a good coat, temperament was first class.

Smooth Collies had some eight entered here today and, as one would expect, this breed is to a high standard in Scandinavia. Best of Breed CC & CACIB was a tricolour bitch, Willowby She’s The One. Best Male CC & CACIB was a sable and white, Tornskogens Boss In Motion. Both to an outstanding best of breed quality.

Rough Collies had an entry of 42 on show. I must say that the males did not please, and only a few awarded Excellent placing. The Best Male was a blue merle from the champion class IE Ch Rosschell Bobby Dazzler At Wassail. I gave him the CC & CACIB, he was very heavily coated, correct colour, moved well, head was pleasing. The Best Bitch came from the Intermediate class, she was a sable and white, French Kisses Vom Adlerwappen, from Germany, she was quite outstanding.

Following my breed judging I judged Best Puppy in Show Day One, following pre-judging of some 67 puppies. For first I selected a Tibetian Terrier, second a Bearded Collie and third a Chinese Crested.

Day Two, I had the Shetland Sheepdogs to judge. This breed was full of outstanding quality here today, some 57 on show and nearly all given Excellent placing. For Best of Breed and the CACIB I selected a sable and white male, he was Swedish Champion Lundecocks Little Loon, he was quite wonderful, quality of breed type, presentation and movement outstanding, I must mention a quality tricolour male Champion made up the previous day, he was Sheldon Truly Madly Deeply. I awarded him the Reserve CACIB, a great dog.

In bitches the best came from the Junior class she was Gold Zitas Wild Amanula, a lovely young sable and white winning the CC, I must mention the Best Veteran in this breed, a tricolour bitch, Swedish Champion Sunsweet Borntobejust Me, a classic this one, later being placed high in the Best Veteran in Show competition.

 

Day three I had Boxers & Rottweilers. Boxers had some 16 on show, most, but not all awarded Excellent placing. For Best of Breed & the CACIB, I selected a brindle male he was Multi Champion Seacrest Sol; Y Sombre, very good breed type, great head with correct balance of muzzle to rise of skull, movement was sound. I note from the catalogue he was UK bred by that great Boxer, Ch Winuwuk Lust At First Sight, he put on a good performance in the Group being shortlisted, in bitches, the CACIB went to the winner of the Open class, Engelaiz Valpolicella.

 

Rottweilers, had some 67 on show, a packed ringside giving great support, I found this a good challenge today, quite a few different types. In the main, temperaments were very good, unfortunately one bitch in the Open class had to be dismissed, she had a go at me and had to be disqualified, having said that, I enjoyed judging the breed. For Best of Breed and the CACIB I selected the male Multi Champion Go Solid Ceaser, a great dog, sound moving, good temperament, later placed in the Group, the bitch CACIB went to Multi Champion Just Ask Maggie, lovely breed type.

 

Day Four I had Samoyeds & Dalmatians. I was looking forward to this day and the quality of both breeds did not disappoint. In Samoyeds, some 21 on show, not all awarded Excellent. For the CACIB & Best of Breed, I had an outstanding example, a male, he was Belolakay Zavidniy Zhenih, he was later placed Group 4. In bitches the CACIB went to the winner of the Open class, Deejasome Helt Underbar.

Dalmatians had some 30 on show, only two not awarded Excellent placing. For Best of Breed and the CACIB, I selected the male, a black spot, Multi Champion Jillocs Sugerdaddy, he was very good, later winning Group 2 in the big ring. In bitches the CACIB was won by the same kennel a Multi Champion black spot, Jillocs Xeed All Limits.

I was then invited to judge the Breeders Group following pre-judging of some 32 sets for the winners in the big ring I chose first the American Akitas, second the Dalmatians, third the Mini Schnauzers, fourth the Rottweilers.

This was a great event well managed and the hospitality to a high standard, it was good to have a chat with our own UK KC Secretary Mrs Kisko, also visiting the show from the UK, Mr & Mrs Bill King. Flights there and return by Lufthansa were good and on time, all in all this was a great experience, we can only say a great thank you to all concerned.
