CACIB Nürnberg 2017

We’ve just started a new show season 2017. On Saturday January 7 we made a trip to German Nürnberg for the international dogshow. The poodles were judged by Mr. Tomáš Kučera (CZ). Originaly I was hesitating to enter Minion there, but finally I’m glad I did. The trip to Germany was safe (exceptly 20 degrees under zero), the trip back home was a little bit snowy.

Minion did a perfect job and was moving very nicely. There were a silver competitor in the open class for the CAC DPK.

And a red competitor for the CACIB. ANNIVERSARY PEARL Ambershades, in 19 months in open class won Ex. 1, CAC DPK, CAC VDH, CACIB, Alpensieger and BOB! I’m happy over the moon and still cant believe that 🙂 (the ligthting in the hall was classicaly bad, so normally light Mini looks almost white)

We stayed for the final, but no placement there. Even in the late afternoon Minion showed herself very nicely.

There are some of my findings from the German shows:

  • if the catalogue says the judging ends at three p. m., you can get your papers really after 3 p. m., even if the judging in your ring ends at one p. m.
  • in case you win BOB, it may happen that you receive your papers in the main ring after your group is judged

Minion’s got first BOB

Me and Minon have participated a CACIB show at České Budějovice (CZE). The poodles were judged by Ms. Taťjana Novotná (CZE). Minion was entered for the second time in a youth class.

She was moving nicely, winning the class with Ex. 1 and CAJC, having no competitors furthers, she has also won BOJ and BOB. I’m just proud of her. Exactly the same day, but five years ago, Minion’s dad Charlie won his first CACIB and BOB on the same show.
