Best In Show
I’m so proud of my big bear who delivered a perfect performance at DKKs Crufts qualifying CACIB show in Roskilde May 1st 2016. First at the breed judging under the Hungarian all-round judge Attila Czeglédi, who by granting Mandela a BOB sent him on to the group competition in the main ring. Here Mandela impressed the Norwegian judge Arne Foss who chose him as winner of group 5 and hereby sending us on to Best In Show competition.
10 dogs were remaining – all of high quality and many former BIS winners. After the presentation and review of the 10 dogs judge Hans Almgren from Sweden was ready to select the 4 dogs for the podium. To my big surprise Mandela was among the last 4 dogs. I was just so proud to win a BIS placement. Number 4 was announced – and it wasn’t us. Number 3 was placed and only 2 dogs left. I had still not realized that I had a chance to win. We took the last run around the ring together with the other remaining dog (the BIS winner from the day before). Over the speaker they announced that the winner was the CHOW CHOW. I was speechless and my eyes teared up.
MANDELA WAS BEST IN SHOW!!
I received a big hug from the judge, got a hold of myself and helped Mandela up on the podium. Pictures was taken and we took the lap of honour around the ring.
3.341 dogs was entered for this show and I’m just so proud to be the lucky owner of Best In Show
