For the rest of our top ten dogs, it was a hit and miss week. Let’s start with the dog missing in action, the number eight dog, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi, CH Coventry Vanity Fair. Carly was conspicuously absent from the shows this weekend. She will certainly fall to the number ten spot, or lower, when all of the September numbers have been tallied. Our number seven dog, the Scottish Terrier, CH Roundtown Mercedes Of Maryscot, also had a rough weelend. On Saturday Sadie was surprised in the breed by another very good Scottie, CH Blueberry’s Attitude Dancing, at the Burbank KC show in Burbank, CA. Sadie rebounded on Sunday to win the breed and a Group one.
Also at the Burbank double header was our number six dog, the Affenpinscher, CH Tamarin Tug. Taser had started the week in upstate New York with four other top ten dogs, but after going Group two on Thursday decided to try his luck closer to home, It proved to be a smart choice as he went Group one on Saturday and BIS on Sunday. Saturday’s BIS winner was the Bloodhound, CH Quiet Creek’s Mi Amor, bred and owned by Susan LaCroix Hamil & Evelyn Jones and handled by Bruce Schultz. Our applause for their first Best.
The remaining top ten dog, the Sealyham Terrier, CH Efbe's Hidalgo At Goodspice, spent a three day weekend in Millwood, VA. On Friday, Charmin wiped out the competition, going BIS at the Warrenton KC show. Saturday, he stood by and watched the Standard Schnauzer, CH Charisma Utopia Von Rocky, take the top prize. Rocky was bred by Constance C Adel, is owned by Robert & Lois Ann Bedford of Livermore, CA , and is handled by Jody Paquette. We tip our hat to them all. Sunday, Charmin was at the Old Dominion KC show. This time it was the Old English Sheepdog, CH Reflection’s Delovely, bred and owned by Marti & Jack Harrison & Tim Cujdik., Salisbury, MD, taking the BIS.

This was also the first Best In Show for Ellie. She is a very young bitch, less than two years old, and obvioulsy has a tremendous career ahead of her. Kudos to all.
