2008 International Champion

(Click to enlarge photo)
On October 19, 2008,  Kona earned the designation of INTERNATIONAL CHAMPION.  International shows are different than AKC shows and judged in a European style.  Each dog is judged in 12 areas with the judge submitting a written report.  The judge then assigns the dog an overall grade.  The best possible grade is "V 1" or "Very Excellent 1".  To become an International Champion, the dog must receive a grade of "V1" from 3 different judges.  Two of these judges must be from different countries (all of our show judges were current AKC and CKC judges).  While we won't pursue Kona's "International" career, we enjoyed this show.  It was the first opportunity to receive written evaluations from respected judges on what they saw as they judged Kona.  In addition to his "V 1" evaluations, Kona won "Best of Breed"  and went on to win a  Group 2 and two Group 3 placements in tough terrier competition. While the terrier count was lower than a typical AKC show, all the terriers that Kona defeated were "multi ch's" and past AKC group placers.
