Atilla du Clos de la Prère was the BIS winner under Norman Deschuymere at the successful Brussels International show last weekend, writes Vince Hogan.
This three year old bitch is an Italian and International champion and now a Belgian champion. She is owned by Louis de Liedekerke and Costanza Ferraris, seen here handling the dog. Reserve BIS was the Maltese Multi Champion Epice des Supers Supers who last week also went
Res BIS at the French National in Lyon.
A number of UK exhibitors and trade stands attended the show which is due to move in 2009 back to its traditional December date. It is hoped that this move will attract a great local crowd for Christmas shopping at the show, based in the Heysel exhibition halls.
Regrettably President of the club Fred Denayer was taken to hospital on Sunday after feeling unwell and OUR DOGS sends best wishes for a speedy recovery.
Meet the real muscles from Brussels! Well known on the UK show scene is T Shirt man Jimmy Van Brussels, who is from .....you guessed it. He will be coming over with his stand of personalised shirts for Windsor; he is pictured here with Roger Vanhoenacker the joint Secretary from Brussels.
