This year, we again visited the Skokloster Summer Show in Sweden. Meanwhile, it moved away from the eponymous location and took place in Lövudden (Västerås). The exhibition place was located directly beside a large campground and the Lake Mälaren. There was even a bathing place for dogs!

Again, it was a two-days exhibition: on the first day, there was the club show of the Svenska Galgo Español Klubben, on the second day, the Galgos were presented on the exhibition of the Svenska Kennel Klubben. For the first time this year, a CAC was awarded on the club show as well. For this reason, our Lara (Rayma LaClaudia) became Swedish champion on the first day.

For the club show on Saturday, the SvGEK had invited Nicasio Deocon Bononat from Spain. He is one of the Spanish special judges for the breed Galgo Español and possesses many years of experience in judging this breed. For Sunday, Gilberto Grandi from Italy was engaged for the Galgos. Mr. Grandi, breeder of Greyhounds and Italian Greyhounds (amongst others), judges Greyhounds since 1984 and all other sighthounds since 1988.

For the club show, there were 41 Galgos entered, for Sunday, there were 33. Here is a selection of our photos...
