Michael Forte in Lisbon

 

I am just back from a wonderful weekend at the International Lisbon show.

Because of the warm weather the show committee decided to try a new starting time, 5pm in the evening, when the weather would be cooler, and indeed, it worked well the entry was up by nearly 13%; quite an achievement in this day and age.

What a hell of a life!!

Ponggibonsi all breeds National Championship Show
 

Having judged in Tuscany before I was looking forward to this appointment. Jacqui Ward was also officiating, she was warned not to be a lightweight, and she did not let me down! 

Allessio, as always, picked us up from the airport and, as always, we did not go to the hotel.

Generally the first thing you need is hotel, unpack, shower and change. What is it about airports that leaves one sticky and feeling unclean? However when you are in Allessioís charge there is always some think more interesting to do. 

So into the town centre for a fun event on behalf of the guide dogs for the blind. We witnessed a display, where the dogs were put through their paces taking their handlers over, through and around obstacles - where are the anti dog brigade at such an exhibition!

The Italian Newfoundland Club, the CIT – Club Italiano del Terranova – held their club show on 3rd and 4th of May, in Spresiano, at the lakeside of the Lago Le Bandie. Spresiano is in North-East Italy, about 40 kilometres from Venice. At the lakeside was a hotel and sports centre where the judges and a few exhibitors were accommodated.  

CAC National Show - Lohja

Written by Administrator

Peggy & I had a very nice invitation to judge at a CAC National Group 1 & Group 8 show in the town of Lohja, Finland  on the 8th of June, 2014.The show was held on a lakeside in the town and with glorious weather and setting the whole event was first class.

We stayed in the Rantasipty Kylpyla Spa Hotel in a lovely wooded area of Siuntion, the facilities, food and the hotel staff were all to a very high standard it was a perfect week end.

Peggy was to judge the Shetland Sheepdogs and the Lancashire Heelers, however, because of the number allowed by the Finnish KC to judge per day, the entry was well over, so the Shetland Sheepdog males and the Lancashire Heelers were allocated to other judges. 

The Malta Canine Society Show

Written by Administrator

Frank Borg managed the show with his typical relaxed and friendly manner, he and the other Frank Borg stewarded ensuring all ran smoothly (yes, they do have two of them!) It was super judging outdoors on a blissfully warm evening.
