Judging in Europe

Home | Judging in Europe

My most recent European judging engagement was in Lisbon Portugal on the 8th April 2006. My hosts Rue and Verena who run this relatively new club, really made me welcome and i thoroughly enjoyed the 4 day visit. The exhibitors were lovely people and very appreciative of my judgment on their Cavies. They were also very enthusiastic to improve both on their stock and the presentation of thier exhibits for showing.
The largest entry at this show was the longhaired classes consisting of Peruvians, Coronets and Shelties. I also had my first experience of judging the Swiss Teddy.  There were not many Selfs on show and too my surprise having completed the days judging i was informed by the exhibitor who had travelled from Spain to enter the show, that she had acquired her P.E Goldens from a breeder in Sweden, and this line had orginated from my stock, as i had originally sold a couple of trio's to Anja in Sweden, who then had sold offspring to this exhibitor. It was also nice to know that the Winner in the class was named Bigwigs Bassett. I was so proud to know that my line is still going strong both within the UK and now further afield.
My Next visit abroad will be the May bank holiday when i will be judging in Tampere, Finland. Another first for me and i am very much looking forward to it.
