It began on the 4rd of August in Zakopane, where we went with Keru went to the International Dog Show, organized by the local branch of Polish Kennel Club. As Oktawia at the time competed (successfully – she was the international champion of Slovakia at grooming for beginners) in the competition for dog hairdressers, I had to go to Zakopane to present Keru. Our judge was Małgorzata Supronowicz . For me it was the first, show. I was not worried about the rsult, because Keru practiced a lot before the show. What was on the number of training sessions, moved to the ring. Keru went very well, was great on the table. The judge had no doubt and gave him everything. We stayed on BIS, however, just before the entrance to the ring of honor, Keru cut his leg and I did not want to risk it.
A week later, Oktawia and Bayka went to Sopot. Their judge was Monique Van Brempt from Belgium. The judge was very strict, which gave often very good grades to nice dogs. Although pretty good presentation, Bayka also got a very good one. I think the judge did not like the Nihon teria breed an judged them for the first time.
On the 18th of August Oktawia, Keru and Bayka went to Ukraine to Uzhgorod. The judge was Nina Aleksandrova. Keru took BOB, Bayka was the Best Junior. Just before leaving to Ukraine Oktawia and I agreed that our dogs are reported also to the competition “Best Couple”. And it worked. Our Japanese terriers were runners on BIS. We are very proud of them. Bayka returned from Ukraine with another junior title and Keru with the senior champion one.
