Shows in 2013

(ckick the small images to enlarge them)

The 2013 show year is over. It has been a great year with many highlights and a few disappointments. All in all, looking back at this year, it was a good year. What did our dogs win?: a new Junior Champion, a new Dutch Champion, and the show titles Europasieger, German Club Champoion, Dutch Club Winner. And finally  Qulaification for Dog Of the Year Show.
At the last show: the K.C. Noviomagum's Christmas Show, under judge Mr. Rony Doedijns, Jaklho Keep A Dream In Your Pocket "Keeper" was awarded with res. CAC and res. CACIB. Then driving home and enjoying a nice winterstop.
We had a wonderful weekend in Amsterdam. For the first time a "double" show, which meant "The One-Day show" on Friday, December 13th, followed by "The Winner show" on Saturday and Sunday. Unfortunately, Jaklho Keep A Dream In Your Pocket "Keeper" and Jaklho Keep A Song In Your Heart "Guy" didn't do much at The Winner, but at The One-Day show, where Guy was entered, he achieved a very nice Best of Breed under judge , mr. Erwin Manders, who was invited to judge the 17 entered Shibas. An exhausting weekend, but certainly also a very nice weekend. Amsterdam almost always brings "new" Shiba people to meet, which makes The Winner a fun and special show.
Now one more show to go in 2013...
It was a great fun-day: Saturday, November 9th in "Dogcenter Zaltbommel" in Kerkwijk. Nippon Inu organized its  championship-clubshow, where the Norwegion Mr. Pedersen (living in the Netherlands) was asked to judge the 54 entered Shibas. What a great entry, so many Shibas together on one day! The Shiba judging began with three little guys in the baby class. Jaklho Walk With Me "Kitai" by Maryline and Frederique (from Hillock Snowy Shiba's) was placed 1st. In the intermediate class, Jaklho Keep A Song In Your Heart "Guy" was  also placed 1st and in champion class Jaklho Keep A Dream In Your Pocket "Keeper" was placed 3rd. After lunch the ladies babies were to show up in the ring. As with the males, here also three babies and our Jaklho I'll Never Find Another You "Kizzy", like her brother, was placed 1st. When it came to best baby of breed, Kitai could take credit ...
Guy did a great job, because he was send home with the reserve CAC.
Another great day for us on November 2. At K.C. Dordrecht's International Dogshow in Bleiswijk,  Jaklho Keep A Song In Your Heart "Guy" won CAC-CACIB and also got Best Of Breed. Mrs. Leila Karkas from Finland was invited to judge the 11 entered Shibas. She also judged group 5 and she awarded Guy with a group-4.
Bleiswijk-Dogshow appears to be our "lucky-show". Sumo, Amity, Amirah, Avalon, Keeper and now Guy, they all won BOB in Bleiswijk.
We had a busy weekend, but a fun weekend too. On October 9, at the Bundessieger Zuchtschau in Dortmund - Germany, judge Mr. E.

Two days later, the Dutch Akita/Shiba Club (N.V.A.I.), one of the two breed clubs in Holland, organized her annual championship clubshow. In a tough champion class, Keeper got the 1st place. But... in the intermediate class Jaklho Keep A Song In Your Heart "Guy" was placed 1st, then he was chosen best male and finally got awarded as Best Of Breed.
