Zodd in showbusiness!


Zodd have been a busy boy since my last entry here. In two weeks he's become both SWEDISH CHAMPION and DANISH CHAMPION and COPENHAGEN WINNER 2009!
He was also placed as Best In Group 4 last weekend!!! This is a HUGE deal if you have a TM - they are not the most common breed to snatch a group placement. Zodd is on his best behaviour when we go to shows and it's been a pleasure to travel and show him.
I just wanted to share these wonderful news with you all :D

1. I am a HUGE fan of $crooge McDuck and have alot of comics starring him.

4. I am in love with the manga Berserk by Kentarou Miura (I even named my dog after one of the characters).
5. I really like nuts.
6. I want an Azawakh one day...
7. I went to Scotland two years ago and it felt just like home.

Were you the one handling him?

Thank you so much :heart:

Yes, I'm his constant companion, even in the showring :D
I'm not sure he would show under anyone else, but it would be great to try sometime (not sure Zodd would agree).

I've always liked dogshows but he's my first own dog that I handle. I'm no pro, but here in Scandinavia nobody really is, even if the new generation of handlers are more professional than us owners. I would guess that 80-90% of the handlers in the showrings here is owner of the dog as well :D

Impressive. :D

I tried showing my Wheaten but I never had control over her in the ring; she would happily jump on the judge and try to like his/her face.

Instead of losing my mind in conformation, I went onto Obedience. Now Navi has her CD title! ^^

Still, it would be cool to have a CH. in front of her name. Too bad I spayed her. :/

Congrats to the obedience title :D

It's alot of fun with dogshows, maybe you should try again now that your she's a bit older and perhaps a bit calmer?

Bafa Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2009
Like I said, she is spayed and altered dogs cannot compete for points.. :(

I might try an altered class just for fun but that is all I can do.

Agility is something else I have in mind!

Will you be doing some other sports with your Zodd? :D

SaNNaS Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2009  Hobbyist Photographer
Oh? I didn't know you couldn't enter with spayed dogs. Here in Sweden (FCI rules) you can go after the champion title with spayed dogs, all you need is a paper from the vet that says that the dog was spayed for medical reasons.

Nope, no other sports for me and Zodd, not right now at least. His annual hate for food has begun again (the same every year around october...) and I have to do as little as possible with him so he will not lose shape. Last year he was a bag of bones since I thought MORE activity would make him crave food... boy was I ever wrong?!

Some cool news though - he will probably be the coverboy of a swedish dog magazine =D
Also there's an intervju with me and alot of photos by my and my sister (of me and Zodd) in the latest issue of one of our other dogmagazines!!

Great fun ^^

:w00t!: Congratulation! :headbang: Well deserved. :boogie:

We're looking at a new puppy soon & TM's have made the short list. I'm not sure I could handle all that fur upkeep & not sure our heat would be good for a dog with such fur. We've had nearly two dozen days this summer of 100+F.

SaNNaS Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2009  Hobbyist Photographer
Thank you :love:

Wow, I'm happy to hear you are looking at TMs, but as you say - they are not made for too much warmth.
Zodd keeps cool by sleeping in our bathroom during summer (concrete floor).

And about the fur - Zodd's fur is soooo easy to take care of. During winter weeks pass by without me brushing him and when I finally do there are never any tangles. Perfect fur for me (=

I ABSOLUTELY understand your excitement, big congratulations! I also have breeds which do not usually place in the BIG or higher. Zodd is wonderful, I love this type of Tibetan Mastiff and he's definitely one of the most beautiful I've ever seen (although only at the photos).

I am really thrilled about this and it's a great chance to show the people at dogshows a more unusual type of TM. He does get alot of attention at shows.
I NEVER thought he would be placed in the group. A dream come true, really (=

So, maybe I should give Hollywood some consideration? XD

Yay, thank you :heart:

It's really awesome that he won since his type is not the most common one. The smaller, fluffier and lighter TM is usually the one that speaks to the judge. I'm thrilled this was not the case this time :D
