Shows February 2019

On 1-2-2019 were 21 Bearded Collies registered in Eindhoven / NL for judge Mrs. P. Runderkamp / NL. There was a real big Entry for this judge. Monika Fuss was in the Open Class with “Firstprizebears Pikes Peak” and Xavier Pottiez with Ch. “Firstprizebears Percy Sledge” in the Champion Class. Both males won their classes. But “Pikes Peak” was ahead and became Best Male and “Percy Sledge” Res-Best Male. Until then, our world was still alright.

Of course, for all of us on the ringside , it was clear that Pikes Peak had to become best of the breed. He is beautiful and always has great chances to be placed in the main ring. The judge thought differently about this and gave it to the bitch from the intermediate class “Bono’s watchfull eye Call me Lou Lou. Inge Floryn was of course overjoyed and the most happy person on this day .

Many people could not understand this decision. I know why. If you want to know it, feel free to contact me.
