The last holiday Sunday my girls and I enjoyed The National Dog Show in Olomouc (CZ).  A sunny day after a rainy night was embracing a beautiful exposition park Flora in Olomouc. A big gratitude belongs to organizers who were able to move this show from Brno back to Olomouc.

What can I say? In my opinion the show was a bit wild, anyway I met plenty of familiar human and dog faces.  I was able to chat with other breeders and to show my whippets which were in a great conditoin. The judge didn´t express any special interest of my whippet girls, but they got very nice assessments. As I often say, every judge has got his proper taste, no matter what about breed standard. And my girls were not for his taste this time.

Zámek Konopiště

Konopiště Castle has always been connected to dog breeding (cynology). It is situates to the middle of a game reserve full of trees and hunting and all these attracted our ancestors to organize hunts. The presence of as hunting dogs was a completely common thing. This tradition has survived until nowadays and that is why Konopiště Castle, precisely Nová Myslivna Restaurant, is the place where many cynological shows and events take place.

This weekend 18th-19th August 2018 The Club of Hound Breeders from Prague organized two shows:

FCI Central European Sighthound Show and Sighthound Club Show

Saturday 18th August  - *** FCI Central European Sighthound Show ***

The Central European Sighthound Show took place on Saturday and was hosting foreign judges. In my opinion the organizing Prague Club made a weak publicity which caused a low whippets attendance and this is not a common thing. My whippet girls were going fine. They received very nice rewards and assessments from the Slovenian judge Andrej Novak for the most demanding open and junior classes. The judge was kind and she behaved very sweetly and professionally towards dogs and their masters.

Sunday 19th August - *** Sighthound Club Show KCHCH Praha ***

This event was a real disaster. I was already warned that taking place in this event does not make sense. Anyway as I made the long journey to participate in Saturday show, I made use of this opportunity and took part in the Sunday show as well. The judge was Mrs. Michaela Pavlasková from Slovakia. In my opinion she no clue about beauty and elegance of a show whippet. And I won´t even mention the "blood-related issue" ruling this show. And what does it imply? My whippet girls that are more English looking with their long loins did not have any change to succeed as the preference of the judge were skinny short whippets. I arrived at a conclusion that beauty shows are based on a subjective opinion of a judge. I can 100% confirm that what is preferred by one judge can be rejected by the other. It brings me to a question: "Why do we have a breed standard if everyone interprets it in a different way?!" Anyway I do not attend the shows just to gain and be on an ego trip, I also want to enjoy it and meet my good old friends and those who suffer from the same underestimation as me and my doggies.

Yearly organized two-day club show "Beauty and Performance" was accompanied by the sunny weather and a friendly atmosphere this year. This time we only took part on Saturday exhibitions, but Sunday´s coursing was also included. During the Saturday Valentine also celebrated her first Birthday. 

Both of my whippets have entered the most occupied classes, one in the junior class and the other one in the open class. They haven´t ended up so badly in such a great competition though.  The invitation for the contest was accepted by Mr. judge Kurt Summer from Austria. I don´t have a good feeling about his judging at all, just because all his opinions were almost everytime the same.

It was The First of May, it was time of love. There was beautiful weather in the nice little town Kelč near Hranice na Moravě and The Club Show of the Whippet Club CZ. The club show was held at the Regional Dog Show of Local Cynology Organization, was very well organized and with the participation of foreign judges.

The majority of us has small or big reservations how the judges work at the competitions. I have to say, I was very surprised this time. There was invited Mrs. Diane Stewart-Ritchie from Ireland (Dwendariff Kennel) at the whippet show. A very pleasant lady, judge, who really cared to choose the best of shown dogs. At the end of the competition she spoke to all attendees about the qualities and faults of the dogs she saw and then she said, that she was pleasantly surprised. Mrs. judge underlined, that she preferred mainly individuals with a compact S-line, with a spacious deep chest and presented in an excellent form.

I´m more pleased, that she liked both of my whippet girls, and that they got a beatiful placement. Mrs. judge liked my young Valentina the most. She was the youngest from nine junior bitches (only 10,5 months old!!!) and she won in junior class. I´m so proud of her!

Regional Dog Show Vyškov of this year, has taken place in the beautiful garden of the Austerlitz Palace in Slavkov u Brna. The weather was great, perhaps the sun was shining too much, but it made really beautiful atmosphere.  There was prepared plenty of refreshment for all exhibitioners and everybody from baby and puppy class, who didn´t win, got a small rosette too, which was just a little gift for them. And how did we ended up?

The worst feel of helplessness is, when one of your loved ones gets hurt and you can not help him. Just the injury of my first whippet led me to the Dorna´s rehabilitation method. This method put her back on her legs after a severe jerk injury.

I graduated successfully at the end of 2017 under the direction of Andrea Dunová.
