The spotty returns continue to come in from Pennsylvania, demonstrating the advantage our two terriers have over their top ten competition this weekend. Neither the Scottish Terrier, CH Roundtown Mercedes of Maryscot, nor the Sealyham Terrier, CH Efbe’s Hidalgo at Goodspice made it to the Best In Show ring at the Devon Dog Show Association event in Blue Bell, PA, on Saturday, placing second and third, respectively, in the Terrier Group. However, each collected almost five times the points of the winners from the other six groups. Group one in the Terrier Group went to the Airedale, CH Stirling Cool Hand Luke, who was bred by Shirley R Good & Susan S Rodgers, is owned by Frank Pulice of Bloomfield Hills, MI, and handled by Ernesto Lara.
Best In Show went to the Scottish Deerhound, Jaraluv’s Ouija while the Country’s number one and two dogs, CH Gailee’s Pure of Spirit, and CH Cookieland Seasyde Hollyberry watched. We can’t say definitively until Monday, but it looks as if we’ll see Charmin and Ouija move up in the standings.
