Her er dommepresentasjonen av dommeren til årets spesial. Den er på engelsk:
I am Anneli Pukkila and I live in Helsinki, Finland.
My first own dog was a boxer bitch born 1974. I had boxers over 20 years and I bred also a few boxer litters.
My first basenji was born 1982 and I have bred basenjis under Sternhimmels –prefix since 1986 and in 1996 I received Finnish Kennel Club’s Vuolasvirta Award for successful basenji breeding.
Out of my 210 Sternhimmels puppies 121 are at least Finnish Show Champions and 51 are even International Champions,C.I.B.
In 2003 I was Breeder of the Year (all breeds) at Finnish Kennel Club’s competition.
I have always been involved in association activities and was almost ten years a board member at Finnish Boxer Society, and in Finnish Basenjis I have a long time experience and have now been Chairman of the Club since 2013.
In 2010 I qualified as a FCI judge for my first breed – basenji and I have been since then authorized as a judge for FCI 4, FCI 5, FCI 6 and FCI 10 and several breeds in FCI group 2, 3 and 8.
In my own group FCI5 I have always enjoyed judging all German spitz varieties because of their attitude in the ring and I am really looking forward to your Speciality and I am excited and honered to be invited to judge there.
