The week of the World Dog Show 2018


We’ve just returned from our mini Show Marathon with 5 shows in one week leading up to the highlight, the World Dog Show 2018 in Amsterdam.
The adventure started in Germany with 2 shows there, after which we made our way to Holland where we found a lovely dog friendly campsite with a dog beach in Zeewolde (Erkemederstrand). Certainly recommended! 
After a couple of days rest it was time for the 3 days of the World Dog Show 2018 in Amsterdam.

What a week it’s been. We had a fantastic break, a lot of fun, made new friends and as for the results, we couldn’t be happier.

JCh. Endeavour Morse vom Storkenbusch – Intermediate – Very Good, 3rd Place
Ch. Dutch Scooter vom Storkenbusch – Champion – Very Good
This was a day where only very few Excellents were awarded. (The whole of Working Class, A third of Champion Class and over half of Intermediate were not deemed worthy of an Excellent mark by the judge)

Saturday 11th August – World Dog Show 2018, Judge Mr. Michael Faulkner (US)

The big day with extremely strong competition – probably the best labradors in the world. Despite this our boys held their own.

JCh. Endeavour Morse vom Storkenbusch – Intermediate – Excellent
Ch. Dutch Scooter vom Storkenbusch – Champion – Very Good (only 20 out of 31 Champions were marked Exc.)

And of course it wasn’t just showing. We managed to get some quality time in at the beach as well where the new lighthouse was a great success. It’s the little things in life you need to treasure as they often bring the biggest joy.

And so a lovely week comes to an end. We’ve all had an amazing time with friends, made some new friends and are now looking forward to a few weeks of rest before the next show.
