Praag/CZ, Varese/IT and Bleiswijk/NL
The van Bossche family had come together with their Tobi (D-Jch. Firstprizebears King Cole) and their OES “Floh” to the double show of Prag in the Czech Republic. On day one Mr. Leif Wilberg from Norway judged and Tobi became Best Youth Dog. On the second day the Czech Milan Krinke judged and Tobi did not get futher than an Excellent 2.
Fernando Sunye and Sergio where with Firstprizebears Kim Carnes in Varese during the Int-Show on 04-11-2012. The judgde here was the frenchman Eymar Dauphin. He thought the beautiful Kim was too thin, but the judgingreport was excellent and also received an Excellent.
With the three of us we where at the Show in Bleiswijk/NL. This is close to Gouda, Rotterdam and The Hague. Robin Searle from the UK was the judge for the 17 entered Bearded Collies. Our Lasse (Lärkängens at Firsticebears) started and was the most succesfull one of our team. He won the Intermediate Class and became Beste Male with CACIB and CAC. Unfortunately he did not win the BOB. Ingrid Schreurs was standing with her Firstprizebears Jade Jagger in the Open Class and received a Excellent 3rd place. Nicole Vissers, the best friend of Vicky, had shown up with Ch. Firstprizebears Just-Beat-it, because Vicky had to work. Beat-it was alone in the Champion Class, but further than a Excellent first place she did not come. This, I personnal thought it was a pity and did not understand. In the judging report it was stated that she was a little too young… Yes, 27 months and a Champion. The winning dog was 5,5 years old….
