BBC Open Show

All rounder and expert Prof. Handler (predominantly GSD's), Gary Grey, judged the breed.   I think we should have expected him to be looking for good construction and movement!
And what a fantastic day Beaugency had.   Our dogs almost swept the board!  

BEST DOG AND Res. BEST IN SHOW     -  MITCH (B. BIBENDUM)
1ST LIMIT BITCH & RES. BEST BITCH   -  MAISIE (B. BORDELAISE)

Many thanks to the judge, and to Andi Horwood for her expert handling

BELGIAN CLUB SHOW

Thanks to the Committee for their invitation to judge this lovely show.   The weather was kind to us, though windy, and I had some lovely briards to go over from near and far.  I was most appreciative of the overall quality entered under me.  Best Bitch and BIS was a lovely fawn girl from the Czech Republic, No Chance to Lose Moravia Campanella.    Best Opposite Sex was Pepino Boss Gasaron a Junior fawn dog also from the Czech Republic.  Fawn dog CAC was from Champion Class, Uptown Boy Jesienna Rhapsodia (Polish x French breeding); Black Dog CAC O'Remington Steele Nadina-Sis (Czech Republic); Black bitch CAC Venus Dalido (Working class) also from the Czech Republic.   I really had no idea that all my top winning dogs came from more or less the same part of the world!    I do not usually like to give top awards to youngsters, as I like to see the finished article.   But this young male Pepino just took my heart.   He was well boned and developed for his age with a good tail, good harsh coat coming through and super effortless movement.   He also reminded me so much of 2 of my own males. I just couldn't resist him.    A big thank you to all exhibitors who entered under me and who took my decisions in such good spirit.

Beaugency Briards at Crufts 2013

A comment by Pat Hartwell who owns 2 Beaugency boys following Crufts 2013"

"Another great day for Beaugency Briards - they were all placed - all 7 of them (counting  Cathy's Bijouette). Not many other breeders could have claimed that! Plus the 'Beaugency Boys' were outstanding on Discover Dogs showing how good the Beaugency temperament is.

Not only that but when handled by other people they are always complimented on how easy they are to handle (given that some of them are little so & sos for Jenny and I!!)."

Thanks Pat, you do the boys proud.
