Time for some updates :)
The past weekend me and Sanna put Bulten and Zodd in the car and headed towards Denmark and the Danish exhibition Copenhagen winner 2011. There were eight Dogue de Bordeaux notified, four males and four females. Bulten went in alone in the open class. I was a little nervous after Bultens latest exhibition fresh in memory, when he behaved as if the judge would stab him with knives or similar ... So with that in mind, we went into the ring and the judge came up and would greet Bulten. Bulten was a little skeptical out and backed down a half step. Then said the judge to me to run with Bulten one lap and then set him up again. So I did and after that we ran, I put up Bulten and the judge came up again. Bulten did not flinch and the judge was looking at his teeth, feeling and squeezing, and Bulten didn´t moved a single millimeter. Bulten got a Exellent and the judge told me that he withheld Ck because Bulten had fallen when we came into the ring. A little lean, I think but the judge is judging ... Judge this day was Mr. Michael Forte from Ireland. Criticism was the dullest I have ever had on a dog and went like this:
A littel reluctend to be handle and a littel shy. Good front, good bone, moving well in profile. Just needs more training in handling.
Zodd became BOB with CACIB and we say a huge congratulations to him and Sanna:)
This weekend we will celebrate the Midsummer in Sweden. Me, Totte and Annie will pack up the dogs in the car and drive to Gothenburg were we will go to puppy meeting with Bultens full and half siblings:) It should be really nice to see everyone again!
Have a great time!
Back home again after a two days dogshow in Fegen :) I have had some lovely days with new and old friends, god food and a lot of laughs :) The show was arranged by the SBHK
and I think it was very nice show. Bulten was enterd for both of the days. Day one he got Exellent 2 for Swedish judge Eva Borg. His critisism was like this :
Big powerful male with a god masculin head. Good nos, correct eyes, adequate chin, good topline, good enough angle, decent feet and intermediaries. Still a bit loose in elbows.
Day two the judge was breedspecialist and former Dogue de Bordeaux breeder Mariano Di Chicco from Italy. Bulten got BOS and his firts CAC. But I am not pleased about Bultens behavier against the judge. He was acting like the judge had fire on his hands and did not wanted to be touched. Not that he tryed to bite the judge or something like that, he was just jumping around and tryed to get away from the judges hands. Stupid dog. After Bulten had become best male and got his CAC I talked to the judge and told him that I was very happy that he gave Bulten the CAC cus I didn´t think he decerved it after behaving like an complet idiot in the ring. The judge smiled and told me that he didn´t care about his behavier cus he liked Bultens type and he had seen Bulten the day before in the ring and that day he behaved exellent. And he said that with the Dogue de Bordeaux you never now how they think :). After Mr Di Chicco was done with his judgement he was mingled with all the people at the show and he walked over to me and Bettan and I thought to myself that I was going to take Bulten out of his cage to se his reaction against the judge again. Bulten was walking right over to him, sniffed his hands and was like:- Hey, it´s you again :) I know you, we have meet before :)
Bultens critisism for the day was like this:
Very nice head, very strong stop, correct proportion of the head, nice profile, nice expression of the eyes, correct teeths, good backschoulder, little big ears, exellent neck, good forecheast, medium bone in the front, good shoulder, good withers, correct topline, medium cheast, good backangulation. Is a little afraid today, good tail, nice movements.
