    Background: The Brno Fair ground, in the days of June 19th and 20th, came to life by most unusual exhibits. A World dog exhibition had brought 1,800 dogs there, 900 of which were champions representing a total of 106 various races from 17 countries. The unusual show drew a crowd of 105,000 spectators.

    A 29 men-jury at pavilion C of the Fair ground served to pick out the best animals.--The "Most beautiful pair of dogs" title went to a pair of bobtails owned by Madame de Ryck, Belgium. Runners up was a pair of German Pintschers owned by Mr. Kohler, GFR. The third place was taken by a pair of German Dachshounds, also from the GFR.

    These chow-chows remind us of little bear cubs. In their home country China they were originally bred to serve as meat.

    The competition for the title of "Best Kennel of the World" was awarded to the cocker-spaniels from the Donarhof kennel, GFR. - A very good second place was won by German sleuth hounds, bred by Moravian foresters in Troubky and Becvou, Czechoslovakia.

    Barsois, bred in Berlin.

    The fourth prize, Jack, Lassie and Mariandel, are partly from Berlin, partly from the GFR.

    A day, to make a dog tired.

    An Afghan greyhound, and even the British bred greyhound, are glad to be back at their hotel.

    Both world champions of the kerry blue terrier race, owned by Frau Kummer from Stuttgart, GFR, in addition to being worth their laurels, have deserved a good treat. Their master can be seen ordering their food.

    Mr. Stanley Dangerfield, a Daily Express editor and BBC commentator specialized in the canine line, thinks that these champions, after all the troubles in the World Dog show, should have a good pint of water, less the whisky, of course.
