Ricky is now World Winner ’09

The dream continues and it isn´t over yet by a long shot!

Ricky is now World Winner ’09 and did it in style by also being selected as BIG-3

Ricky also became a new Slovakia Champion this weekend. He again did it with style by being selected as BIS at the Slovakia National show held in conjunction with the World Winner show.

The Slovak Republic capital Bratislava hosted the World Winner ’09 show. The Slovakia Kennel club also organized a national show the day before at the capitals racecourse. Queen Bless JP Royal Connection “Ricky” gave a precursor to the following days results by winning BOB, BIG and then BIS. The weather in Slovakia can never be counted on at this time of year and it turned out to be cold and rainy. Breed judge Yolanda Nagler Magal used her ingenuity in using a kiosk to provide some dry shelter for the competitors. The rain stopped in the afternoon for the BIG competition and again Mrs. Yolanda Nagler Magal picked Ricky as her best dog. The day was complete and the future told when Mr. Jerusalimsky Evgeny of Russia put Ricky at the top of the BIS podium.

The historic city of Bratislava holds many unique and beautiful sights for visitors. The historic center may be small but the charm is concentrated and visitors always feel welcome. Ricky thought it was funny seeing the “Paparazzi Statue” hiding to take his picture.

The next day the big moment arrived. The World Winner show this year blew away previous years entries by posting a total of 21,021 dogs. It was the largest entry ever! The Papillon entries were very strong and boasted a total of 115. The event was held in the Incheba Expo Arena and provided an improved setting for the entries. The judges were Mrs. Tatiana Urek from Slovenia (Intermediate, Open and Champion classes) and Mr. Spoljaric Boris from Croatia (Veteran, Puppy and Junior classes). Out of the Champion class of fourteen entries Ricky emerged as best Champion. In competition for Best of Breed he completed his long record of titles by becoming World Winner. Mrs. Tatiana Urek was the judge making Ricky Best of Breed. The day was long and finally the time came for the Best of the Best to compete for Best in Group. Mr. Luis Pinto Teixeira from Portugal had the honor to judge the Toy Group. His experience of judging Papillons must have  keyed him into recognizing Ricky´s quality and he selected him as BIG-3. A big congratulation for the miniature poodle CH Smash JP Close Up as BIG and Boston Terrier CH Ax Dagbej as BIG-2.
