Dustin 4th Best Cat Longhair Specialty.
Judge: Brigitte Berthelon, France

This show had a Maine Coon Special.
And Dustin was chosen (with 7 other Maine Coon's) for a species-presentation.
Below a short movie of that...

Because the man in the movie is talking in Dutch, below a translation!
This cat is wonderful of length.
He also has a very beautiful big hairy tail, big feats and strong boning in his feats and
he has beautiful eyes.
What I like about a black cat is that they have a shiny coat, absolutely with this fur quality. This is what we call a “silk coat”.

28-08 2005   -   HI Ambacht - NVVK

I had taken Dustin for the fist time to a show. He was very relax and seems to love all the attentions that he got over there. He got his first CAC and I was very proud.
The jury told me that he had a excellent strong head profile and chin, a nice square nose and he was good in proportion. Dustin also has a powerful muscular body and chest. The conclusion of the jury: a promising good looking cat.
I was really proud  but than I was called to stand up with Dustin again.

Now I became very nerves..... Dustin was asked to stand up in line for the nomination "Best in Show". It was the first time with him and I didn't realized he was that heavy (his weight is 8 kilo) so standing in line my arms got lower and lower and I was so nerves, but Dustin was relaxing on my arm! Than they called: "Dustin can stay with 5 votes of 5 jury members"...
I could not believe it!!!! This was the first cat of mine who got a nomination...
now I was really shaking all over!
Luckily for me my befriended breeder Marian Slingerland of Cattery Kawanhee offered herself for me to stand up in line with Dustin for the next nomination Best of the Best. I was so glad that she would do this for me because I couldn't lift my arm anymore.

My Dustin became Best of the Best of the Maine Coon Special!!!!!

I think I was living on a cloud on the stage when I received the Trophy and came back to earth again when I was putting Dustin in his cage.

It was the best experience I had ever had!

Greetings Nympha van den Toorn (who is still living in the clouds)

Dustin Best in Show

Dustin Best of Best
