Scene at the World Dog Show
Bratislava, 8-11 October 2009
Size matters in Slovakia!
After a marathon final day in Bratislava, a Swedish owned Pharaoh Hound topped what has been hailed as the biggest ever FCI event, with just over 21,000 dogs being recorded. The BIS was judged by FCI president Hans Mueller and it was an energy sapping stint for all as the final pronouncement came at approximately 10pm on Sunday night with the crowd chanting for BIS whilst speeches were still being made. It was
suggested by many that the size of the entry had swamped the infrastructure of the Slovakian Kennel Club, which did not have a major sponsor for the show and had to contend with massive crowds (good for the gate!), traffic congestion and even catering problems at some key events.
