The Slovakian Rough Haired Pointer Club (Provisional)


Crufts Debut by Margaret Hunter


2013 is the first year Slovaks have been able to be shown at Crufts in the Any Variety Import class.


With a little gentle persuasion we decided to enter Eva as through the hard work of Joanna MacLaine and Richard Dickson she had attained the status of “Irish show champion”.  This year she also got her stud book number thanks to Les and David McGuire helping her to achieve Novice and All Aged field trial awards and Julie George-Ainscough kindly agreed to show her off in the ring.


So there we were at Crufts after an overnight drive from Scotland.  The AV Import class had 38 entries mostly Lagotto Romagnoios but we were delighted to see two fellow Slovak entries.


The first award for the Slovaks came with a second in Post Graduate Dog for Panoply Assured Gamble.


We then had a bit of wait for Open Bitch where Ansona Cleopatra “Asha” and Eva were entered.  Eva was placed second in the class behind the International show champion Lagotto.  A real achievement since she was placed over a number of other show champions. It was pity Samanatha’s Asha did not get a place but we were definitely out numbered.


We were absolutely delighted when Eva was called back in to the ring in best bitch category when the Lagotto who had been placed first in her class was awarded best bitch.  Eva was then awarded Reserve Best Bitch.



A great first year at Crufts:
