Yesterday we went to the show organised by the Royal Belgium Sighthoundclub, the KBWC, in Kortrijk. This show was organised at the same time as the Eurodogshow. Esed wasn't impressed by all the noise and people. He played with other dogs, not only sighthounds, and loved to go around the shops. He also played with Checkhov, the borzoi of my mother who was there too.
He got some new toys and a nice collar. And in the afternoon he put his first baby steps in the showworld. The jugdge was Mrs. M-C. Delabelle (B). Esed did his best and he received the notation of Very Promising and Best Baby. Because of this he had take part in the ring of honour with the other 5 sighthound-babies. And he made us proud by being placed 2nd Best Baby of the Sighthoundshow, thanks to jugde H. Zuber (CH). After the show we went home, Esed slept in the car and by the time that we arrived in Deurne, his batteries were reloaded and he played with Zino.
We are Penny & Eric Karaspilios—Franssens and we live in Deurne near Antwerp in Belgium. As a child I’ve always had dogs and mostly sighthounds. In 2000 at last we had our own sigthound, Zino, a cross galgo from Spain. A few years later we took Chivas out of a dogshome near us. Chivas was a cross azawakh-greyhound and thanks to him we fell in love with this beautiful but very special breed the “Azawakh”. Sadly Chivas past away just two weeks before Esed arrived in Belgium.
