This is the second most prestigious FCI dog show (after World Championship
FCI) that takes place once a year, each year in a different European country.
This year Europe Championship Dog Show took place in Bratislava - Slovakia,
on 3-5 October. Shibas were competing on Oct 3rd, under the judge Mr.
MASAMITSU FUKUSHIMA, from Japan.
Under the FCI rules, the best female and the best male from all classes, over 15 months old, (including Champion class) get Europe Champion title, and CACIB - certificate for International Champion FCI. The second best adult male and female from all classes receive reserve CACIB (like reserve winner).
The Junior Europe Champion title is also awarded to one female and one male from Junior classes- 9-18 months old. Both Europe Champions (male and female) and both Junior Europe Champions (male and female) finally compete for BOB title. The BOB winner is competing later in groups, and BIS. The puppy, and veteran classes do not compete for BOB, or groups, but there are separate BIS puppy and BIS veteran competitions.

For Immediate Release
I know that Jane Chapin had Catty out at a few shows and got some breeds. Also that Joy Burlingame, Amanda Duncan and Yori Green's BBE bitch took several points and also a 5 point major up at Waukesha. Pat Doescher finished her Chip at Waukesha, and her and Karen Drentlaw's TJ took a major there at the Saturday show. Pat also got a major on her black & tan girl Peep on Saturday. Tammy Szabo's Toby was Best of Breed 3 days at Waukesha (one day defeating grandpa Mickey). Mickey was BOB at the Sunday show. Yori Green finished her Jou at Belvidere by not only taking breed over 2 specials, but onto a Group III under Elaine Rigden who is very sparing in her giving of group rosettes to shibas. Letha Gast's and my Niji took two points out of BBE while still a baby, he's now back at home with Letha since he looks like a teenager (and a naked one at that!). Mickey was Best of Breed the first day at Belvidere under Peggy Hogg. I will TRY to get some pictures up here of these dogs if someone would send some (hint! hint!)
Something else we did was attend the Shiba Rescue picnic hosted by Midwest Shiba Rescue. There was an online auction before the picnic and they raised quite a bit of money between that and the raffle held at the picnic. I was there with Jonathan and my dad and his wife Carol, and we also had Mickey & Guess and I picked up Jimmy who was coming home from Pat Doescher's house where he spent a little time during the month. Thanks to MJ for taking such good care of him and I'm sorry I scared you by removing him from the expen but I was so sure he'd be good at one of the games I couldn't wait. I can't remember who won all the games, I think Linda Manlove's male was Biggest shiba, Guess tied for biggest shiba smile, Cassie the honorary shiba won the cheese ball catch (she does have the biggest mouth after all LOL). Good food, good company and lots of fun. Be sure not to miss it next year! There should be pictures up soon at Midwest Shiba Rescue.
