In honour of the the most victorious show-dogs of the year 2007, was arranged, also in this year, the big Gala Evening,
CHAMPIONS of CHAMPIONS & VETERAN of VETERANS. In this year, like the year before, the Gala was hold in the Fur-Center,
in Vantaa, and the date was almost the same as in last year, Saturday, 9th February 2008.|
The show is organized as an invitation contest, according the results of the preceding show year. The Finish Kennel Club has a show dog listing for the 100 best show dogs of the year - in spite of the breed. The invitation is given to 100 dogs competing at the title of Champion of Champions and 50 dogs competing at the title of Veteran of Veterans. The dogs get points of the group placements and the BOB and BOO of the special shows. So it's quite difficult and a big honour to get along to the Champion of Champions & Veteran of Veterans gala.
The judges for the Champion of Champions were Elina Haapaniemi (Finland) , Christofer Habig (Germany) and Carl Gunnar Stafberg (Sweden).
The competition is a "strike out competition", it is 2 dogs together to the catwalk, and the judges give the "colour", red or black, and the other dog fall off until only one dog is left
