5th March 2011 : The Martini International Championship Dog Show , Groningen, The Netherlands. Jina is 10 months of age & decided to blow ALL her beautiful puppy coat out in the bath just before the show , so looked rather naked in her 1st Junior class! We took her anyway for the experience of being at a busy indoor all breed championship show, and was pleased for her to be graded ‘excellent’ & shortlisted in a big entry of quality bitches. The judge Eddie Webster from the UK wrote in his critique of her : “Very nice outline. Lovely head, dark eye & dark pigment. Very good reach of neck & shoulder placement. Level topline. Good tail & set. Very good rear angulation. Straight front legs with good bone & tight feet. Well ribbed, short coupled, moved well. Shown in beautiful condition. Unfortunately lacking in coat today. Excellent.”

Good set on of tail. Good turn of stifle, good muscle tone. Creates a quality, balanced picture, very nicely handled. Excellent. CAC & VDH”.
9th April 2012. International Championship Easter Paasshow, Leeuwarden, The Netherlands, Jina is 2nd Excellent in Intermediate Bitch under judge Val Tregaskis from the UK. Again Jina had dropped all coat in the bath …. bad timing on our part as her coat was glorious at Christmas!
14th April 2012. Jina is 2 years old today! She attends the compulsory GRCN Breeders Day for an assessment on her conformation and her stability with gun fire shots. Jina is steady & graded excellent with the gun shots and passes every one of the 25 points looked at by the judge on her structure with an ‘excellent/uitmuntend’ qualification.
Jina has not been shown much as a youngster …. She only competed at 5 x shows in total so her results are rather wonderful for the few shows attended!! She was a very big and leggy puppy and is a bitch which needs time to develop into her frame – we hope that after her litter she matures and returns to the ring in a glamourous party dress to be campaigned for a while!
