European Dog Show 2013

Featured Written by
Geneva gem for Valentina

The jewel in the crown of the European dog show in Geneva last weekend proved to be the Scottish Terrier, Filisite Brash Koh-I-Noor, owned and bred by Valentina Popova from Russia.

Topping the lot out of 8000 dogs in Switzerland, the Scotty had been sent through from the breed by well known Swedish judge Dan Erickson, the group by former AKC Chairman Ron Menaker and then taking the ultimate award from Switzerland’s famous Hans Muller, now retired from duties at the FCI but an appropriate judge for the show in his home country. Unusually a Karelian Bear Dog owned by Dawne Deeley from Canada was Reserve BIS to big cheers from the crowd.

Switzerland is a small dog country and a tremendous effort was put in by the organising group, headed up by the dynamic duo of Barbara Muller and Laurent Pichard. The main sponsor was Eukanuba and they dressed the main ring at the end of Hall 6 where all the judging had taken place. The Palexpo centre was right next to the airport and next to the show hotel; all strategically perfect for the organisers.

Thursday saw an international show which had all 10 groups compete in one day in the one hall.

All groups ran to time and Sunday’s BIS finale was finished in good time for an after show party in the main ring.

On Monday the European Section voted the 2017 show to go to Ukraine so Kiev is on the menu in four years time! Quite a difference to the mountains and chocolate of Geneva!
