Shows April 2019
April was not our month, no Firstprizebear was in first place ……
Monika Fuss’s beautiful “Firstprizebears Pikes Peak” had to compete at the Int. Show in Zwolle / Nl settle for 3rd place in the open class of 3 registered males. I first thought that he was 1st and 2nd 2nd and 3rd 3rd. But no it was the other war round …… It was so clear.
Judge was Mrs. C. Kerssemeijer / NL Photo courtesy of Thierry Caron and Delpine Camus.

Ms. Anne Otto does not want to be seen on my Facebook page or on my homepage. She even took the time to consult a lawyer. I do not understand why, as she usually wins. Does she fear that other people will find the other dogs more beautiful in the photo? Well, modern times! Since August 2016 I lost the desire to exhibit Bearded Collies. You can read the reason for this on my homepage at the news about Shows in August 2016 about the Brussels show. In August 2014 at the show in Mechelen, the same woman who complained had a very best friend who took very unfavorable photos of me while I was in the ring. They had so much fun showing them on Facebook. Why does this woman not enjoy her victories (I can write a book on how to do this) and have a good time?!
Later we had photosession with “Pikes Peak“
On April 6th and 7th there was a double show in Colmar / F. Family Knuchel was participating with their “Paddy” Ch. Firstprizebears Patrick Duffy “Judges were the siblings Mrs. B. Müller / CH and Mrs. C. Bailey / GB . Mrs. Müller gave him an Excellent 2 in Champion class and Excellent 2 for Mrs. Bailey with Res-CACIB
On 14.4.2019 on the Int. Show in Chemnitz / GER the German collie breeder Mr. Wirth was the judge . The Kirmis family competed in the champion class with “Sally” Firstprizebears Pasadena and finished second. Ms. Cocozza showed her “Ella” for the first time in Open Class . “ Firstprizebear’s Q’Walnutcreek ” received an Excellent 2nd place

Sue Jones was in on the road in England with her “Lola” on an open show from the Bearded Collie Club. Unfortunately, I always wait for the names of the places and the judges ……. is a bit of a hassle to get all the info. Anyway, on April 6, 20120, Firstprizebears Ro Grande went Best Puppy Bitch and 2nd in Minor Puppy Bitch
this expression from the Firstprizebears Beardies whether show dog or beloved family dog is just great.
