World Dog Show 2017

This year the WDS was held in Leipzig (Germany) and was for our breed really a world event:
32 entries from 8 countries.

It was very nice to meet all these Cesky terrier enthusiasts,
thanks for the great atmosphere around the ring!
I'm happy and proud with the results of our two homebred dogs:

Garex Gijs was entered in very strong champion class (8 entries).
He did a great job and ended up with Ex3 behind the Best & Reserve dog.

Female veteranclass was full of quality with the top bitches of past years.
I have had no high expectations,
but it was the day of our more than 9 years old Garex Dobromila:

Summer 2017

Last summer I didn't show my dogs as often as usually,
more often I participated in the shows as (trainee)judge.

Very special and unforgettable for me are two shows that were a real feast for any (Cesky) Terrier enthusiast:
the first Championship show of the UK Cesky terrier club and
the TerriEri show of the Finnish Terrier Organisation.
I would like to thank both clubs for the invitation and for the excellent job prior and during the show and for your hospitality.
Of course big thank to all my ringstewards and last but not least thank to all the exhibitors for presenting their dogs to me!


But also our own dogs were "in spotlights":

Maartje (Nartoun Reca Dagmara) get an other VP and a very nice report from terrier specialist
Mrs. Letácková at the IDS Litomerice (CZ).

Roos (Komidion Prelude) was shown twice:
IDS Litomerice Best of Breed from the junior class,
finishing her Czech Junior Champion title and winning her first mainring prize:
3rd Best of National Breeds.
Again Best of Juniors at the Championshipshow of the Terrier Club (CZ)
and in the mainring Reserve Best in Show Junior!

Garex Gijs was entered "only" in the honour class at the Championshipshow of the Terrier Club (CZ),
but he did very well: Best in Show of the honour class!

Our 9+ old Mila (Garex Dobromila) did really her best:
Best of Veterans
Best of Breed
Best in Show Veteran
3rd best shortlegged terrier

Autumn - winter 2016-2017
It was busy time and I had neglected my website for a while.

As in a "normal" life, there are also ups and downs in the life of a dogbreeder.

The highlights of the last months are:

Garex Gijs finished his International Beauty Champion title
with winning CACIB, BOS at international show in Bratislava (SK),
finished his Dutch Champion title at the Dutch Winnershow in Amsterdam (BOB and Winner 2016)
and was selected as one of the 8 best terriers at the Champion of champions show in Prague (CZ).

Our veteran Garex Dobromila is back in the showring:
BOS, Veteran Winster and Winster 2016 in Amsterdam.
8,5 years, still a beauty!

Two young ladies arrived in our home:
from the UK Komidion Prelude (a.k.a. Roos)
and from Slovakia Nartoun Reca Dagmara (Maartje at home).
I hope both will have a long, happy life with us.
More information follows soon.

Sad news:

We had have to say good-bye to our Cilly - Multi Ch. Garex Cecílie
after she was with us for almost 13,5 years.
She never gave us a puppy, but she gave us a lot of joy:
in the showring, at agility, but above all as always happy, a little crazy pet.


September 2016
Our Gijs did it again: best terrier!
At all breed NDS in Brno (CZ) Garex Gijs: Best of Group.

Our Gijs (Ch. Garex Gijs) did a great job between almost 350 entered terriers:
Clubwinner & Best of Breed - judge mr. Kubala (SK)
Best shortlegged terrier - judge Mrs. Jansen-Kalshoven (NL)
Best in Show - judge Mr. Brown (DK)

Would like to thank all the judges for seeing the quality in our boy!

Our Garex Gijs was shown for the last time in junior class, with Ex.1, CAJC
he finished here his Czech Junior Champion title.
As he also won Best Dog and Best of Breed, we entered the main ring three times:
in the Best of National Breeds competition, in Junior Best of Group and in Best of Group.
In burning sun and over 30 degrees Celsius it was bit crazy job!
But Gijs did his best and I'm happy with the first main ring prize of his show career: 2nd Best of National Breeds.
Good boy!

June 2015
Three weekends, three times enjoyed my canine hobby in three different ways.

First weekend as a judge at the IDS in Oss (NL). Judged the Sealyham's, the Cairns and the Westies,
I was happy to see one of the dogs I've sent to the main ring winning Best in show Baby.

Than the WDS in Milano: no title wins for us this time (Gijs was Excellent 3 in junior class),
but a great day with Cesky Terrier fanciers from all over the world.
Probably it was the most internatinoal Cesky ring ever:
exhibitors from the USA, the UK, Russia, Germany, France, Czech Republic, The Netherlands, Sweden and of course Italy.
And than a after show party organized by our Italian friends!
Emanuela many thanks for your hospitality!
