We had our first experience at an Hozonkai Championship at 09.10.2022, which also was the first one for AKIHO France and it was fun to be part of it. Credits to AKIHO France to organize this event.
Unshou got a 2nd place in Souken male, but we know he still has a lot of developing and maturing to do, so we’re mainly happy with how he presented himself - which we can’t say for Raigorou and Torahime who participated in Seiken. I knew this style of showing wouldn’t be for Raigorou/would come too early in our showing adventure with him, but we wanted to try anyway, and we failed miserably. We’ll keep on working. The biggest disaster for me was showpony Torahime who was totally annoyed that day and never presented as horrible as she did then - being naked on top of it.
Besides our own bad performance, we had a good, sunny day in a lovely atmosphere, surrounded by beautiful dogs, so all worthwhile the trip.
Congratulations to all winners!
