The 163rd EAKC Championship Dog Show, judged by Leni Finne (FIN) sponsored by Top Dog and Bounty Water was a great success! The judge arrived safely on Wednesday night but Saturday morning started badly as it poured with rain while I drove to the showground. However, as I turned off Ngong road and onto Kibera Drive the rain stopped! PHEW!
At the showground a bit of bad news awaited us, as quite many dogs had to be withdrawn from competition as they had gone down with Kennel Cough. (No coughs were heard at the show).
It was all better from then on. Judging went well with the judge being strict, but fair. Commenting that despite our GSDs not being as fit as they would be in other countries, they moved very well, or even better than elsewhere in the world! This can be attributed to good breeding and a successful Hip Dysplasia scheme. GOOD JOB GSD BREEDERS!
The Best in Show for the THIRD show in a row was Michael Omondi’s GSD Champion Kilele Wendi, a country bred(local) GSD Bitch, bred by Dr. I. Luvai out of Kilele Kimon and Kilele Hot Favourite!
On Sunday we had a heart stopping moment when a report came in that 2 Rottweilers were being stoned to death on Ngong road. However, this too had a happy ending as they showed up with some injuries, but 2 dogs no worse for wear (excellent temperament), one of them even went on to win the Rottweiler Bitch CC.
We were very pleased to have so many new faces at the show! Ms Mazibuko with her gorgeous Bulldog, Ms Shiraz’s gorgeous Maverick, a Standard Poodle puppy imported from Belgium, bred by Keith Mullan (who used to show the mom here).
Ridgeback Dog CC winner, Limpopo Tide of Mr. Zavala, Ms Kaur with the gorgeous Tavetan Nani (GSD Dog RCC) and many more!
We were very grateful to have Josera, Bravo (by Sigma), Royal Canin and Harley’s Limited support our show by having a stand and to Mumbi Muli for doing such a fantastic job with the catering! The food was YUMMY!
As I was feeling lazy, I only took around 3000 photos at this show. They are all online, in small version, so as not to crash the site! Please feel free to look through them all, click on an individual photo to get the title, and send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you wish to have a copy, just tell me the exact names of those photos you want, as you can imagine it’s quite a job to sort them all. Click here to see them.
These photos are mostly unedited so yes I may be able to improve them for you. I will send full size originals to OWNERS or people featured only!
