It was once again a great day at the Schnauzer Championship Clubmatch of the Dutch club VSFL in Barneveld (NL).
Habanera de Pichera got 1 Excellent in Youth Class, she won an RCAC and became JBOB. The report of the judge, Mrs. Simone Wachholder Comtessa's from Germany mentions a good scissor bite, very well built, typical head with dark eyes, well pigmented nostrils, good angulations, hard top coat, somewhat freely carried ears, free in the movement and a friendly character.
Recent research has shown that one in four Miniature Schnauzer are carriers of a gene that causes Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT), which is a terrible muscle disease. We are therefore very happy to report that both Merry Christmas of Randi's Ushabti and Habanera de Pichera do not carry the gene in question.
