Luxemburg/LUX, Budapest/HON and Walsrode/GER
The Autumn Show of Luxemburg is normally held in the month of September. This time it was at the end of August, so in fact a Summer Show. The Slovakian Mrs. Iveta Vojtekova had to judge 51 entered Beardies. Luxemburg belongs to one of my most favorite Shows and the judge was new and therefore we wanted to show our “Prada” to her. At the last minute “Lorne Green” was entered before the Show. He had been with us on a honeymoon trip, since 3 months and we had finally found the possibility to get him back to Israel with another participant at the Show, who was flying home the next day. Paz Davidovich had therefore been without her “Lorne” for 3 months. In the Champion Class, 6 Males had been entered, of which Lorne was by far the youngest and ended at a 3rd place. Our “Prada” was in the Intermediate Class with 5 other Bitches.
She won this Class, won from the Champion, Open and all other Bitches and ended as Best Of Breed. “Prada” received a tremendous amount of applause from the other contestants and it rained compliments. A beautiful, harmonic day with a lot of new encounters. At 17.45 hrs the judging started in the Big Ring. The Lithuanian Mrs. J. Aidietiene judged the enormous large FCI Group 1, in which there where many beautiful dogs. We where selected amongst the last 8 of this Group. More than we had hoped for with our young diva.

Last Sunday, a more breeds Special Show was Held in Walsrode/GER, which is located in the beautiful Lüneburger Heide (heath). The German Beraded Collie Club had rescheduled their Show in order to be pasrt of this one. As judge the Irishman Des Manton was invited. I do not know exactly how many Beardies had been entered, but here are the results of the two males of the Vanbossche family.
Their “Tobi” “Ch. Firstprizebears King Cole” won the Champion Class and became Best Of Breed and because of this Club Winner 2014. Simply a beautiful victory in which the Dogs convinced. The Vanbossches can continue by hovering on pink clouds, as they are still sitting on them since the weekend before in Leipzig.
