Top Twenty Showcase

& Parade of Veterans

 

This event will showcase the top conformation dogs from 2019.  Entry is by invitation only for the top 20 Spinoni Italiani in breed points, as determined by AKC statistics from January 1 through December 31, 2019. 

This prestigious event can be attended by anyone coming to the national.


Dogs will be judged by a three-judge panel:  a breeder judge, an AKC judge licensed to judge Spinone Italiano and a handler judge.  Each judge will evaluate the dogs on a predetermined point system, enumerating the criteria of our breed standard. The emphasis for judging is on the individual qualities of the dog and how closely he/she conforms to the breed standard.  Points will be tabulated once the judging is completed, and the winner will be announced at the conclusion of the event.

 

 Thursday, May 21, 2020 at The Holiday Inn - Weirton, WV ballroom

Cocktails and desserts begin at 6:30 PM

Top Twenty at 7:00 PM

PARADE OF VETERANS

The 2020 Parade of Veterans honors the veteran Spinoni who have brought credit to the breed in the field, show, rally, obedience, agility, therapy or other performance areas, and, most importantly, as a treasured companion.  All Spinoni 7 years of age and older may participate.

For each veteran walking in the parade, please furnish a brief paragraph (100 words or less) which will be read as each dog enters the ring, along with three or four favorite pictures of your veteran, which will be displayed.  The paragraph should include the age of the dog, parents (if known), breeder (if known), accomplishments and a sentence about why they are so very special.

IN ADDITION:  For those veterans who are unable to attend, a brief slideshow will be developed and showcased after the parade, honoring those Spinoni who continue to make a difference but did not travel to the National.  Please provide 3 or 4 pictures of your veteran throughout the years, including the dog’s full name and call name, and the owner’s name. 

Please email your information and pictures to Becky Tevis at [email protected], no later than March 15, 2017.
