Updated on: 21 Jan 2014
We remembered Zentarr Morgan, winner of Best In Show at the European Dog Show 2012. In this post we are talking together with Francesco Cochetti, judge of group 9 at the European Dog Show 2012.
Mr. Cochetti, you judged group 9 at the European Dog Show 2012: what do you remember of that day and of that edition of the European Dog Show? Judging Group 9 at the European Dog Show in Bucarest has been a great recognition for those who, like me, have been dedicated for ever to companion dog breeds and have judged them in 40 different countries all over the world. A considerable responsibility and a great trust from the Romanian Kennel Club. I remember and will remember that day forever, especially the high quality of the dogs in the ring. The choice wasn't easy for sure.
Tell us about Zentarr Morgan, winner of Group 9: What do you remember of this dog, which you pointed out as the Best of the group? A Lhasa Apso with a typical head, which immediately caught my attention for his great presence in the ring, for his movement and finally his excellent construction and for the preparation. A "Top Dog".
Did you expect Zentarr Morgan to win also Best In Show? When judging groups, you always hope that the dog of your choice gets on the highest possible step of the podium. This I hoped for, and this came to be. Giving me confirmation of the right choice.
