We had a fantastic week in Orlando and the
showresults were overwhelming! Harley was invited to compete in the
special invitational show; Eukanuba World Challenge, since he was Best
in Show at the World Dog Show in Salzburg. Before he entered the
wonderful arena for this show in the evening, he was competing in the
prestigeous allbreed show AKC Eukanuba National Championship Show and
won BOB under breed specialist Anne MacDonald (Mabrooka Salukis), from
Great Britain. It was such an honour to win the breed at this
prestigeous show and under a breed specialist.
In the evening he was shown in Eukanuba World
Challenge, a show where the mostwining dogs from all over the world
meet to compete. Harley was judged in section four. This was a section
with extremely tough competition. Judge Ramon Podesta from Chile chose
Harley among the three from his section to compete in the final the
