Shows November 2019

On the 2nd and 3rd of November there was a double CACIB show in Bleiswijk / NL. We had loaded our car on Saturday morning with Monika and her “Pike” and “Anna” with chauffeur Conny, countless bags and odds and ends, all for 2 days showing and an overnight stay. Just what you need as a woman on the way with her  dog. It should be a dream weekend for Monika and “Pike”. For “Anna” and me, only Saturday was great, Sunday was floppy … On Saturday 20 Beardies were entered for the judge Mrs. Pamela Runderkamp as well on Sunday for the Irish gentleman and allrounder Mr. John Walsh Senior. On both days Monika became best of breed with “Pike”. On Saturday, the icing on the cake was the 2nd place in  group 1. Judge was Mr. Rob Douma from the Netherlands. On the second day, the group judge was  Ms. Marion Ten Cate, she had no placemen in the group  for Pike.

On Saturday there was another highlight. Ch. Firstprizebears Pikes Peak has now won all the tickets for his Dutch Champion title. Monika and Pike are a super team

As usual, “Paddy” was presented  by Fernando Sunye. He is owned by family Knuchel from Switzerland

Super Multi Champion “Firstprizebears Enfield” is a big bearded Collie personality. Meanwhile, “Lee” is 14 years old and is spoiled by his owners Alberto Sanchez and Christina Andres and is in a flawless condition. “Lee” is proud father of now 18 champion children. His 18th Championchild became English Champion and is called “Arranbrae Muy Guapo.” It is the fulfillment for every breeder, when a dog is very successful at exhibitions and also as a breeding dog – beauty  inside and outside.
