It was a big honor to be invited to judge at the Regional Speciality
Show at Nationals this year.
I appreciate this invitation very much. After working out all the
paperwork, which is necessary between VDH and AKC I was ready to come.
My long time breeder mentor and friend Sue Anderson took se
hours on the phone until I understand your system of placements.
It is really different than ours over here. But finally I understand.
Thank you Sue.
Also David Williams decide to get me a ring steward who speaks German.
So to avoid mistakes I could ask her some questions about the
right position of the placements in the ring. Thank you Pat for helping
I enjoyed very much to see all this nice dogs in the ring. Thank you for
all the complements I got during the week after judging.
The show area was really very nice. I appreciate the good food. Also
Harry Roach did a great job to find and share the directions to other
restaurants around the Show area. Also I got time to see all my
friends again and made some new ones. We had some very good chats in the
Bar at night times. Pat E., Domino G. and Pat R. had a great
discussion about the difference of our show systems. I really
learned a lot. May
be they did too.
I had a great time riding in a purple bus around the city. This bus was
very special and came all the way from Canada to nationals. Thanks
Andrea and all her friends for sharing this with me.
Finally a special thanks to Beverly Wall, you took really good care of
me and it was so nice to meet you.
This Nationals was without a doubt one of my favorites and one I will
Thank you all again for the nice time over there.
