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 day after.

Directly after the seminfinals in the Eukanuba World Challenge, Harley went to compete in the Hound Group at the AKC Eukanuba National. Carla Molinari, from Portugal gave him the group! What a day!!!

On Sunday, after a good nights rest, we went back to the showground to compete with Harley in two Best In Show finals. First he competed in the Eukanuba World Challenge final, where 12 finalists had been chosen by four judges the day before. Luis Pinto Teixeira picked Harley as Runner-up in Show (BIS-2) to the impressive black standard poodle, representing the USA.

Two hours later Harley competed in the Best in Show final for AKC Eukanuba National Championship Show. Together with USA'a toppwinning dogs, he competed under Mr Edd Bivin, from USA for Best in Show and reserve Best in Show. Best in Show went to the fox terrier and Harley won the reserve Best in Show! What a recognition of our Saluki!
