The World Dog Show is coming up this weekend. This year it's being held in Salzburg, Austria at the Salzburg Exhibition Centre. The World Dog Show is one of the largest FCI shows held every year in a different location. Last year it was held in Paris.

I hope to be able to find the results this weekend to post, so that we can see dog from around the world. Last year an Akita from Spain took top honors.

I figured I would post this now, before I forgot about it.

Awesome! I hope to visit the World Dog Show someday. Last year I went to the Euro Dog Show because it was in Leeuwarden (of ALL places in Europe, only 20 km from my home!!) so OF COURSE I visited, couldn't resist :D Some awful things happened there though, the weather was extremely hot and people left dogs in their cars... *facepalm* A couple of dogs actually died from the heat. Really awful.

It's a shame FCI shows can't be seen on tv or anything, like the English Crufts and American Westminster.

I wish the FCI allowed a more varied phenotype in Aussies to register with them and allowed the judges and breeders who have been with the breed since it's beginning to be judges for their shows. The FCI is EXTREMELY misinformed on my breed and have turned down many "judges education" seminars hosted by breed historians.

I saw a picture of one dog who was apparently excuded or disqualified as "not purebred". She looked like many of the working line Aussies I've known - less coat - not much flash. But looked like an Aussie. I think they must be nuts. If they can't judge a breed correctly, they shouldn't even recognize it. Then again, I had one lady send me a picture of her rescue dog who was a lighter boned, lightly coated black bi that she wanted to ILP. I told her AKC might have a problem because he didn't look like what you typically see in the show ring. Sure enough, she updated me, and they would not ILP the dog as an Aussie, but were willing to ILP him as a Border Collie (with no tail)
