Last Saturday, 8th of October 2016, we finally had time in our calendar for a first show this year (we had A LOT of other personal things to do this year). As always, it was a well organized and nice show and quality of dogs was pretty good, not at least because it also had Crufts qualification.
When we entered the show ring after nearly 1 year pause, I was convinced that Chap was about to win the class or at least will achieve the Res. CAC. For my opinion the other 3 dogs in Champion Class were clearly behind Chap in terms of an athletic, muscular body; powerful and clear movement and also coat.
Unfortunately we did not meet the judges taste and Chap was ranked V3 / Excellent 3.
Regarding to the judges report the only thing that he disliked was Chaps coat. We have to accept that, that’s show. And: we are looking forward to the next one 🙂
