Exhibitions in January 2023

Gothenburg in Sweden started right on the first weekend in January with a 4-day, very large exhibition.

Amilia Helin registered her “Rolfi” with the judge Mrs. M. Östlund-Holmsten. She was confident in his quality and made him Best of Breed.

In the big, excellent group 1, “Rolfi” was among the last 6. The judge was Mrs. C. Hoier from Denmark.

The exhibition in Genk/Belgium was on January 8th, 2023. From our kennel were 3 dogs in 3 different classes  registered for the judge from Croatia.

It had been 3 weeks since my knee surgery. I am the proud owner of a new left knee. That was my first big goal to go there with my two crutches. I wanted to support my 3 dogs.

It is judged by Mr. B. Spoljaric from Croatia. A bitch bred in Croatia made the long journey from Ireland to show here. Of course she won everything, also Group 1, judged by Mr. Spoljaric. The other dogs are only fillers and have no chance at all…..

My dear Kinga had to exhibit her NL and CH youth champion, youth winner “Unisono aus dem Elbe-Urstromtal” for the first time. Of course Kinga was very nervous and it was good that I could support her a little. “Cloe” won the Junior CAC and now fulfills the requirements for the International Junior Champion.

The Champion class bitch: The Irish bitch on the 1st place, the 2nd is 6 years and on the 3rd place, the square bitch, with the graceful arched neck, as required in the standard, was Martina Weissman’s “Ch. Sexygril aus dem Elbe-Urstromtal”, in 4th place for the Luxembourgers

Gerda Jolink was awarded Excellent 1 in the intermediate class with her 15-month-old “Ultra Chic aus dem Elbe-Urstromtal”.
