Yesterday Endo and Eoos went to the all breed show in Bleiswijk.
We had to get up very early, the alarm went off at 5:30!
At 6:30 on our way and picked up Guido and Endo at 8:00 in Gouda.
We had an Australian judge: Mrs G. Cook, she will be judging the Best in Show today. Chinka (Xin-Feng's Embla) was entered in the show too, so in the Puppy Class were 3 pups entered, all Xin-Feng pups.
Endo was the first to be judged and did very well together with Frank.
Immediately after Endo the two sisters went in the ring. Eoos did not very well, she can behave much better than she did. But the judge made her the best of the two sisters, they both got a Very Promising.
Then I had to go into the ring too, because Endo and Eoos had to compete with eachother for Best Pup of the breed. De judge was very charmed with Endo, so he won.
The judge said to Frank that Eoos needed some training, so he told her we had not been training with Endo and had been working with Eoos for some months ;-)
Here the critiques of Endo and Eoos:
415 Xin-Feng's Endo
An extremely promising young male very typical for the breed. Very good head and expression. Well set ears, lovely eye, good pigmentation. Excellent rear, correct stilted gait. Good coat.
1 very promising, Best Pup
419 Xin-Feng's Eoos
Bitch of very good type, size and balanced. Lovely head and expression. Excellent coat texture. Good overall construction. Very good bone and feet. Excellent rear.
1 very promising
Because Endo was Best Pup, he was expected in the big ring to compete for Best Pup of the Day. Endo really tried his best, but the judge had other preferences.
It was a good first show day for Endo and Eoos!
The next show we will attend will be in December in Wijchen.
