I had a few dogs that needed to be transported to Europe, so arranged my trip to coincide with the NIPPO Show Holland 2014. I helped translate for the NIPPO judge, and assisted in the ring. The show was held in mostly NIPPO style, with a few twists. The weather could have been better, but at least it did not pour rain (just cold with drizzle here and there). With around 100 dogs (I think that's how many it was!) going through 1 ring, Mr.Iwasa and I were extremely busy. I wish we had been able to spend more time evaluating each dog. Maybe next time NIPPO will send 2 judges.
The BIS judging
The Shikoku female that took BIS. She was a very nice dog and deserved the win.
Evaluating some Shiba.
Checking the teeth of that many dogs was a bit of a nightmare. At least all you can see is my underwear.
