In Germany dessert is very important, this show had a separate tent for coffee and dessert, and ALL of this was gone by the end of the show:

The show committee and the 4 judges, the center judge is Reinhardt Meyer the SV National Breed Warden. All wearing their best “German” faces.  I do not know why but this picture brings to mind a childhood memory of Mr. Toad from the book “Wind in the Willows.”

World Champion

I was hoping to watch Erin and Zambo compete in Austria at the Universal Sieger show, but because of limited vacation days I was only able to attend a regular show in Anspach Germany where Erin and Zambo also competed. The next weekend Erin and Zambo were crowned World Champion at the Universal Sieger show. Here are a few pictures from the Landesgruppen show in Anspach Germany of Erin and Zambo during the off-lead gaiting portion of the show:
