The World Show 2002 was held in Amsterdam from the 4th to the 6th of July. The Miniature Schnauzers were shown Thursday the 4th, and the entry was high for all four colors: 94 salt/pepper, 43 white, 83 black, and 95 black/silver. The total entry of dogs to the World Show was over 14,500 dogs, from 53 countries all over the world – truly an intercontinental happening! The winners of the following classes would also qualify to participate at Crufts 2004: Junior Dog, Junior Bitch and the CACIB winners.

The entrance to the show was quite caotic: none of the parking people could tell us where the different halls were or how to get inside, so we had to walk for ever to find our ring. And the show area was humongous: 11 big halls, they were all connected so it was quite challenging to navigate. All the dogs had to be examined by a veterinarian to get in, and the lines were endless. You had to be starting early to make it to your ring in time! The rings were nice: big with lots of space around. The lighting could have been better could have been better. Separate grooming areas had been designated, and everything inside was well organized.

Group 2 was huge with 56 different breeds and lots of strange breeds I have never seen before. BOB salt/pepper "Dialynne Leveller from Risepark" , and BOB black/silver: "Digger-Heike v. d'n Oppasser" made the final cut and were picked out amongst the 8 best in the group.
The weather was lovely all day, and after the show we could walk through the park with our dogs to get back to our hotel.
