Championship Clubshow with CAC, 2023
Dear members, dear Pug lovers, dear Pugs,
The BPDC Championship Show will take place on Sunday, October 1, 2023.
We have been able to book the spacious hall: “Edele Brabant” Strijlandstraat 57, B-1755 Gooik.
Judging starts at 10 AM. In 2023, we invited the English Judge, Lady Sonia Saxon.
The judge introduces herself:
I bought my first pug from Brenda Banbury (Flocktons) in 1972 and went on to successfully breeding and exhibiting pugs under the Danjac affix.
We bred and exhibited both black and fawn pugs.
Sneezewort Black Knight and Ch Knight in Ernest with Danjac were amongst the two most successful.
I awarded my first set of CCs in pugs in 2004 and to date have awarded 6 sets of CCs, and will be judging them in Australia and the UK in 2024.
I am on the UK Pug Dog Club Committee and judging sub- committee and I mentor up and coming judges.
I moved into Bulldogs in the 1989, the Danjac Affix had expired so my husband and I chose the affix Bagibeli which I began to regret when it appeared below my name when judging!
To date I have bred 3 Champions and Ch Bagibeli Queen of Hearts was top winning bitch in 2017.
I awarded my first set of CCs in Bulldogs in 2010 and have now given 6 sets of CCs.
I am on the Judging & PR sub-committees of the Bulldog Breed Council and teach on seminars.
Pugs remain my first breed and I enjoy judging them enormously, the health of all brachycephalic breeds have come under scrutiny recently in all countries but I firmly believe health of the breed has improved and I commend all the great breeders all over the world who have worked so tirelessly to improve the breed.
Thank you for inviting me for this prestigious appointment and I look forward to meeting all you all in October.
As usual the Pugs will be able to win many beautiful trophies!
Closing date for your entry: Sunday, September 10, 2023!
