10.-11.12. Helsinki Winner and Finnish Winner

The last weekend we had the biggest Swedish show of the year, and this weekend two Finnish Winner shows, and must admit that we are glad that the next weekend is show free. 10 Imbrez dogs entered and super early mornings make these shows challenging, even they are also rewarding and can be considered to be like friends' gettogether with some Christmas spirit.

At the moment we are kind of between the generations and the main effort was put to our future hopes in Junior class. Was quite amazing to see the whole salt and pepper Light-litter in the ring, 3 males and one female. Salt and peppers (56 entries) were judged by Mr M. Calin from Romania on Saturday and by Mr M. Nuijen from Netherlands on Sunday.

If one must criticize, it is that when people enter their dogs to these, especially big, shows, they also expect judging experience match the effort put to grooming and travelling, (and also high entry prices), but this time the outcome wasn't as rewarding as hoped for. Of course there are sometimes breeds that judge isn't particularly keen on judging, then these breeds should not be judged by this judge. This weekend was the first time we have ever had a dog on the table waiting to be judged for over ten minutes.
