International Dog Show in Kielce (on November 13th) was our last show this year. We decided to go there with our all family and that Oktawia will be the handler. We showed Tsubasa.
In the open class we were judged by Hungarian judge Csaba Denka. Oktawia was a little bit nervous after few months break from handling but with Tsubasa’s help they came off nicely. On the table the judge didn’t touched the dog but the whole presentation was really good. Tsubasa got BOB and finished his Championship of Poland.
The November 9th is Tsubasa’s birthday. He is 2 years old now and we gave him a little tasty present – a pâté.
He’s becoming full-grown dog.
We wish you all the best.

On October 9th I had pleasure to organize in cooperation with Zabrze Branch of the Polish Kennel Club the 3rd Speciality Show for Japanese Breeds. Our judge was expert from Japan – Sei-ichiro Ishimaru. I was the one who had to be Tsubasa’s handler and it was quite big difficulty for me to be the handler and organizer at the same time. It was not the best day for Tsubasa. Unfortunately it was cold that day and the ground was soaking wet. The judge liked the Tsubasa in the ring and gave him BOB.
Due to the fact that I was organizing the show we made only one round without judging in honor ring. It was good training for us before next shows.
At the end of August we went to Brussels on European Dog Show. Our judge was Tamas Jakkel from Hungary.
Tsubasa is still a very young dog so we could expect almost anything. We’ve spent lots of time for training and practicing before this show and wanted to show it in the ring. And we did it. Tsubasa looked and behaved really nice. He stood great at the table and was beautiful in movement. Without any doubts judge Jakkela gave Tsubasa his first adult continental tilte – the European Winner.
We decided to stay for BIS competition where again Tsubasa did great his job but we achieved nothing more. But the fact of taking part in finals of such prestigious show was undoubtedly our success.
The turn of July and August was the best time for trainings before the Euro Dog Show. We were on three different shows with Tsubasa.
The first one was International Dog Show in Konopiska on July 23rd where our judge was Maria Zasada. Tsubasa showed himself really fantastic. Stood great at the table and looked great in the ring so he deserved for BOB. In the honor ring he also did great job but was unnoticed by the judge.
One week later we went to Będzin on National Dog Show. Our judge was Adam Stasiak who gave Tsubasa BOB after great presentation of our dog. But once again it was not enough to be noticed in the honor ring.
Same situation was during the National Dog Show in Bytom on August 13th. Tsubasa got BOB from the judge Monika Kuriata-Okarmus but it was not his best show. It might have been because of chaotic judging plan. I had no enough time to take control over the dog because we had to go to the ring. In the honor ring we did not expect any success because the judge didn’t even know what breed is Tsubasa. Even though these inconveniences Tsubasa showed himself really good.
Now it’s time for Euro Dog Show.
