ShowSight January 2019

welcomed Eeva Rautala who had 75 entries on Sunday, thanks to a nice entry of 29 Bernese Mountain dogs. On Sunday she had Labradors. Every Day a best In Show was cho- sen, Saturday it was Mr. Theo Leenen himself who filled the 3 podium plac- es. What a good example for all other shows to only place 3 dogs! His 3rd place went to Scottish Terrier “Verascott Jiminy Cricket” who was entered in Champion Class by his mistress Monica Borga from Italy. He is 4 years now and had to beat 13 other that were entered for mr. Luc Detry from Belgium. The Group judge for the Scotties was Mr. Daza from Colombia. Second place was for the Grand Basset Griffon Vendéen of MGen Huikenshove from the Neth- erlands. Only two were entered for Mr. Petru Muntean. Snowman is also 4 years old and he won the group under the very same judge. The Brussels BIS Tro- phy went to the Medium sized Black Poodle coming all over from Russia along with Polina Kurbatsckaya. “Yamit Muskat Victoria’s Secret” is the name of this lovely two year old girl. Funny, this dog is from unknown origin and registered in Russia. Mr. Kai Smukczyn- ski from Germany had the privilege to judge him and group win was a choice of Mrs. Monique Van Brempt. On Sun- day Mr. Petru Muntean was the one to give away the trophy of the Brussels Dog Show. He placed the Yamit on the 3rd place. She was entered in Open Class and Mr. Igor Vyguzov award- ed her BOB and also BOG as he also judged the group. Giura Anca entered her Kaninchen Dachshund longhaired Rodels Magic Moonlight in Open Class, judged by Mr. Augustin Ionescu. And here again it was the same judge who judged the group. And guess who won? Yes, it was “Frosty Snowman”, this time

judged by Mr. Ümit Özkanal from Tur- key , also the very same who judged the group later. Mrs. Monique Van Brempt was asked to judge the Supreme Best In Show and she chose the Poodle, BIS of Saturday as her Supreme Winner. One of the consequences of a double show with not a too big amount of entries is that you see a lot of dogs end both days with the same results, and also

on the podium in the main ring, some- times even on the very same place. The judges, being present on both days, change breeds and groups but keep the same preferences and as there are not too many dogs in each breed both shows are very alike with few surprises. Let us hope that the competition will turn on again when double shows will become history.
