CRUFTS – MARCH 2012
BIS GCh Ch. Thornapple I Call The Shots "Icon" 2nd place at Open Class in Crufts 2012!!!!!
IM OVER THE MOON!!!!! (Open Class is a class for all Champions Dogs from any country). I CAN NOT BE MORE HAPPY!!!!
DOG WORLD NEWSPAPER with the "Crufts News Specials" were you can see the Judges Comments about each breed.
Here are the first 3 places at Open Dog Class, as the judge said "THREE CRACKING SPECIMENS"
(Our Icon was 2nd in Open Dog Class at Crufts 2012 out of 18 Males)
Mr. Stuart J Mallard: Without doubt a breed with great appeal. I thoroughly enjoyed assesing the entry & considered the overall standard healthy and sound in several specimens in peak condition & quite outstanding, an exhilarating experience. Overall i felt the males had more depth of quality. A couple of numerically large classes did lack depth of quality and the real type that gives this breed it´s very definite identity.
Open Dogs Class (OD): Long time since I judged such a wonderful class.
2nd Place Open Class - Our BIS GCH Multi Ch. Thornapple I Call The Shots "Icon": Black, Masculine, and on the same line as 1st place, beautiful head and properties, arched neck, moderate round bone into good feet, level topline, moderately defined muscular quarters, excellent coat.
The Dog that won 1st Place at Open Class was also the BEST OF BREED winner at Crufts, so how im not going to be super happy and proud of my boy????!!!!
And that is not all :-).... the newspaper says:
"A TOTAL of 21.029 dogs has been entered for Crufts 2012, the Australian Shepherds entry was of 188 Aussies!!!!!! The dogs from overseas are from 38 different countries including Germany, Canada, the United States, Thailand AND FOR THE FIRST EVER TIME AT CRUFTS, FROM CHILE"
(YES YES YES... That is "Icon" and Me) The first entry from Chile at Crufts ever!!!!!!!!
Thanks to all my family and friends from all over the world for all you amazing comments of us and our results at Cruft 2012, specially to Lydia and Kevin Brown (owners of JCH. BLEUROYAL ALASKA PERMAFROST “Bear”) who adopted me and "Icon" at their home for all those days!!! hihihihihihihihi
