Bundessieger & Nationale Zuchtschau 2008 ...

Qannik of Nikolatsjka Anw. Dt. Jug. Ch. VDH

Yesterday we attended the dog show in Dortmund Germany. As always we entered with Qannik and Galinka to compete against other dogs in the show ring.
As always the competition was very hard and with 37 husky's entered it promised to be a good competition.

Qannik had to run against 2 very nice dogs but managed to ended up first and thus gained his first German title!! He can now call himself "Bundesjugendsieger 2008" still sounds good into my ears. ;)

Galinka didn't manage to get a title and only got a 'very well' on her card ... despite the results we are getting for Galinka she's still our lovely girl and we love her just the same!

The day started quite early, waking up at 3:40 am isn't something I would like to do every day. ;)
And after a 2 hour trip we made it in time to enter the Westfallenmesse. Dog's checked and looking out for a free bench to put the dogs in. After that it's time to get our own stuff from the car (we usually always get the dogs in first so they can relax a bit after the trip in the car).

When all this was over it's time to walk the dogs a bit ... they need to relieve some tension and need to get a small peek on where they are (or is it that we are just curious and want to move around a bit to pre-show our dogs? ;) ).

One major advantage from showhandling husky's is that you don't have to fiddle around with the dog to much ... some brushing and removing some loose hair is all it takes to get your dog into shape for the show.

It was also nice to meet up with some people we met at previous shows and some new faces (who we'll be bumping into at one of the next shows to come for sure). In between the waiting we had a great time catching up on what has been happening to each other lately.

We'd like to thank judge Henrik Soeborg (DK) for his excellent judging and taking a good time to check up on every dog that entered the ring, making care they all meet the standards.

I'd also like to congratulate Schäfer Guido and Strack Klaus with there gained BOB result.

The judge really took his time to inspect the dogs when selecting the BOB, they walked for what looked for ages! ... I don't think I've made that much rounds in one show before ;) Qannik ended up 5th from 6 dogs wich I found a personal best for the both of us, competing with the champions isn't always easy for a youth dog. ;)

So, we can say that we are still very happy with Qannik's new tittle and are looking forward to the next show in Utrecht next Saturday. I'll keep you informed on what's coming next. (someone was taking pictures while Qannik was in the ring so I hope to be able to post something this week)

Here's already one for there well deserved rest!
