We visited Augsburg two times - in 2005 and 2010. Augsburg is the capital of SV - German Shaeferhunde Verein.
My wife Irina dreamed to visit Headquarters of SV as she is a member of this organisation from 1999.
Only a few of Russian German shepherds visited SV.
But Asslan and Pilar have been there!
We were on our way to World German Shepherds Dog Show SV BSZ-2005: SV-BundesSiegerZuchtschau. Ulm, 2. - 4. September 2005. And for the second time on a way to SV BSZ-2010: SV-BundesSiegerZuchtschau. Nuremberg, September 2010.
You can watch my 1 min 10 sec Video Augsburg Rathaus Platz out of my Youtube channel or here on VT.
