Shownews September 2017

02-09-2017 Luxembourg / Lux. Judge Mrs. R. Blessing / GER
Norman Harrison aus dem Elbe-Urstromtal” wrote Bobtail history at this show. He won the CACIB, CAC and best in breed. He also received the title of Winner Benelux. This is his 3rd qualification in a Benelux country. He won his first at the European Show in Brussels in August 2016, which was his first country with this qualification. He won his second qualification in September last year in Maastricht in the Netherlands. All of them are, of course, associated with qualifying for the CRUFTS show in Birmingham. After winning this final title at the autumn show in Luxembourg, he is BENELUX Champion. “Norman” is the first Old English Sheepdog to win this title.
Quite rightly, everyone who loves Norman is proud of him.

His daughter “Pipa Middelton aus dem Elbe-Urstromtal’s” owners Willy and Ron van Opijnen were also very successful. She won the intermediate class with CAC. In the competition for the best bitch she won the Res-CACIB and Res- Best Bitch. Since the winner is already an international champion, this CACIB is transferred to “Pipa”. Heart, what more could you want.

The Horschler family was busy with “Macho”. They were at 03-09-2017 at the clubshow of the Swiss OES Club in Kaiseraugst / CH. The judge Mrs. A. Allen (Allmark OES) / GB gave him an excellent 1 with CAC in the intermediate class. This is the 3rd CAC that Macho has won in Switzerland. Thus he has fulfilled all conditions for the Swiss Champion.

10-09-2017 Special Breed Show Neckarsulm / GER, Judge Mrs. C. Bailey / GB
Ms Köpp’s “Prima Donna aus dem Elbe-Urstromtal” won the youth class bitch here. She got her 3rd Junior CAC and is now a German Junior Champion. I am very proud, well done.
The Horschler family started with “Macho” in the intermediate class and got an excellent 3rd place.

A few seconds ago I received a message from distant Russia.
Multi Ch. “Gervais aus dem Elbe-Urstromtal” called “Tom”, (Father: Ch. Excalibur aus dem Elbe-Urstromtal, mother: Ch. Creditcard aus dem Elbe-Urstromtal, owner: Koval and Birjukowa) was exactly 10 years old on 27.8.2017 and won a Res-Best in Show on this day.
After a long show absence, he has now been shown at a total of six exhibitions. At the last 6 shows he had a lot of success. On Sunday as the icing on the cake, he won BEST in SHOW.
A 10 year old male, who still brings such victories home is something very special. I am immensely proud and happy and grateful to his owners that they have “Tom” in this great condition.
