CACIB, June 2017 - WikiPet Portal Review
The weekend was busy - all employees of the portal wikipet.ru in full force worked at the international dog show, which was held in Ratomka, near Minsk.
Almost all dog breeds that exist today were represented on the show, with the exception of the insanely popular husky, border collie, German Spitz, Welsh Corgi, Jack Russell Terriers, Senhenhund, dachshunds and others.
Such rare ones as, for example, Schipperke, a naked Mexican dog, Podenko-Ibizenko (by the way, the first time we saw these dogs live), or that Fox Terrier, Lapinporokoira and Norwegian gray Elkhound were present.
And the owners of affen Pinschers and Kerry Blue Terriers were very happy that our employees knew their breeds “by sight,” because they rarely recognized them.
True, there were not as many Belarusian participants as we would like. But dogs from Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Estonia, Finland and many other countries were represented. And we met many of them when the four-legged participants were branded cookies.
For two days, the entire wikipet.ru team prepared and packed the treats in bags with a photograph of the participating breed (they made as much as a thousand). “Oh, this is just a portrait of my dog,” - the surprise and joy of the owners became a pleasant reward for our work :-)
Not without adventure. For example, several Bassenji argued which of them is more champion. The ladies decided (without consulting the owners) to find out, not in the exhibition ring, but in the worst traditions of beauty contests, “lap-butt”. As a result, women's competition grew into fights without rules.So Anna, our dog handler and veterinarian, had to not only act as a referee and separate rivals, but also provide them with first aid. But our impressions remained positive. And how could it be otherwise if there were so many amazing furry (or not so) creatures around and their wonderful owners? See you in the new rings ...
