Shows December 2018

The second weekend of December was VERY successful for the Elbe-Urstromtal Kennel . The good thing: I’m sitting on the sofa at home and my phone makes “rrrrriiiinnnggg” and the reports with the successes come in. This is luxury for a breeder, you do not have to do anything yourself.

On 8-12-18 the IDS was in Kassel / GER. Judge was Mr. Uwe Nölke / GER. The open was occupied with 5 bitches, a total of 23 OES were entered. Mrs. Döreen Köpp has taken the long journey and showed  her “Prima Donna aus dem  Elbe-Urstromtal“. Best female with CACIB, CAC and the last ticket won for the title German and VDH Champion. This is the number 151 for the Elbe -Urstromtal History . Her sister “Pipa Middelton” is already champion. Both are children of Ch. Norman Harrison aus dem Elbe-Urstromtal and Ch. Aryakas Niki Elbestrumtal.

In Austria in Wels was also on this day an international show. It was judged by the well-known Norwegian Leif Herman Wilberg. “Ch. On Top aus dem  Elbe-Urstromtal” owner family Horschler won the champion class with Res-CACIB and CAC. He won his last CAC for the title Austrian Champion. The young bitch “Quadriga aus dem Elbe-Urstromtal” owner family Laminger won the intermediate class and received the Res-CACIB. She’s a younger sister to Prima Donna and Pipa Middelton.

Sorry, no photos.

On the Christmas show of the Danish OES Club on 9-12-18 Mrs. Ann Cuthbert from Ireland judged . Gesa Milde won the open class,  CAC with “Pulverfass aus dem Elbe-Urstromtal” and became 4th best male. in 2019 he could reach 3 titles ….. exciting.

On Friday the 14.12.18 in Amsterdam was the Holland Cup. This is the pre-show in front of the Winner Amsterdam. Driving to Amsterdamin the morning  on Fridays and back in the evening is not funny. Traffi jam without end ….. But I could not leave it, although very tired because of Prada’s puppy. Then without a passenger, that’s already hardcore. 15 OES were registered for the young Hungarian Robert Kotlar.

Mr. Kotlar likes Sidney and gave her the CACIB, CAC and Best Bitch “Queensize from the Elbe-Urstomtal

22-12-2018 International Show in Vernray / NL

The last show of the year is always Wychen. It used to be there, now it’s Venray / Nl but everyone still says Wychen’s Christmas show. Mrs Anita Gielisse from the Netherlandsjudged the  8 registered OES on 22.12.2018. She herself is a famous Borzoi breeder, who also regularly shows her dogs very successfully. In my opinion, it is the first time she is judging our breed . For us, this show was the culmination of a very successful show year.

Q’Anna Anka from the Elbe-Urstromtal, just  17 months old, wins the CACIB, CAC is Best of Breed.

The highlight of the day, Anna is 2nd in Group 1, Judge Mr. D. Ruttern / NL

Year end party of really nice OES People
