Shows November 2021

Our Beardies do extremely well at shows. I am happy that there are still such beautiful Firstprizebears who represent our kennel worthily.

The Clubshow and CACIB Show, which is important to achieve the title of Portuguese Champion, was held in Santarem / Portugal on November 7th / 8th, 2021. Borja Thovar went there with “Multi Ch. Firstprizebears Robin Williams” and his sister “Firstprizebears Rihanna”. The judge on the special show was Mr. S. Delmare from Ireland.

“River” Firstprizebears Riverbendmeadow won 5 points major. For the title USA Champion you need 15 points of which at least 5 majors, if I’m right

On the weekend of November 13/14, 2021 the double CACIB Show took place in Karlsruhe / GER. Our dear Mr. Krimis lives almost around the corner and tries to get his life back in order. He lost his wife at the end of September. The dogs were their common hobby. So I’m all the more pleased that his “Sally” was best of breed on Saturday with the judge Mrs. Bartz / GER.
