What an amazing day yesterday at the International Dogshow in Leiden. The judge for the Dalmatians was Dhr. Jakkel (HU).
Joy (Handsome Friends Brazlilian Battle) was 1Exc. in open class and also won Best Male with CAC/ CACIB!! He loved being in the ring and was such a good boy!
Koh I Noor (Multi.Ch. Handsome Friends Adamas Koh I Noor) was 1Exc. in veteran class with VCAC and again Best Veteran of Breed. But she also won Best Bitch with CAC! So mother and son had to compete for BOB. After a short battle the judge choose Koh I Noor as Best of Breed.
So at the end of the day she had to come back in the ring of honor where she showed her socks off; In the group judging she was selected but didn't placed. In the final for the veterans she did amazing and won 2nd Best Veteran of the Day!! The judge told me Koh I Noor catched his eye immediatly; "A lovely bitch with a really good size and amazing movement". Wow, what a great comment.
Of course Koh I Noor and Joy did some shopping to celebrate the amazing results and chosen and nice cuddle blanket. A day to remember.
Today we've tried a new sport with Koh I Noor. At first she didn't wanted to pull the step but walked perfectly at the back wheel, just as she belongs to do when we take her with our pony in front of the carriage. So we changed; Leonieke with the experienced dog in front and the instructor with Koh I Noor behind her. And it worked, she did amazing. Good girls!!
We had a wonderfull show weekend at the MartiniDogShow in Groningen. The first day Dhr. Hiddes (NL) judged the Dalmatians. In his opinion the spotting of our (and many other) dogs is to heavy so the qualifications where a bit dissapointing. They ended up with these results;
All Stars (Handsome Friends Bo Darya-Ye Noor) was 3VG in open class males. He had a very nice judge report. All Stars did really great and enjoyed his time in the ring very much. So we're very proud and satisfied with his performance.
Koh I Noor (Multi.Ch. Handsome Friends Adamas Koh I Noor) was 2VG in veteran class bitches. She also had a great judge report and loved being in the showring again.
After the judging our dogs took part at a amazing dog diner in the ring of honour. They really loved it!
The second day the judge for the Dalmatians was Dhr. Tainin (IL).
Joy (Handsome Friends Brazilian Battle) was 2Exc in open class males. The number one became Best Male so after that Joy beat the junior, intermediare and champion males and was choosen as 2nd Best Male with RCAC/ RCACIB! The judge loved his "marvelous gait".
Koh I Noor (Multi.Ch. Handsome Friends Adamas Koh I Noor) was 1Exc. in veteran class bitches with VCAC. Later Koh I Noor also won 2nd Best Bitch with RCAC and Best Veteran of Breed!
They both did perfect and had amazing judge reports. After the judging our dogs took part at a workshop body awareness in the main ring. They had a great time!
Cold but sunny winter weather in Holland. Perfect conditions for some new pictures of our dogs.
