CATCH ME IF YOU CAN
As the show results roll in for the weekend, we were reminded of the Road Runner cartoons. Remember how the Road Runner always would tease Wile E. Coyote by letting him getting close, then stick out his tongue, waggle his toes, and streak off into the distance? So it must have seemed to the Pointer, CH Cookieland Seasyde Hollyberry, today as she left Judge W. Everett Dean Jr’s BIS ring today at the Kennel Club of Philadelphia Show in Readng PA. Today’s win put her 479 points ahead of the number one dog in the nation, the Giant Schnauzer, CH Galilee's Pure Of Spirit. Only a BIS win would allow Spirit to retain her top ranking and she had struggled this weekend, only making it to the final seven once in three days.
However, like the Coyote, Holly was to be denied the lead once again, as Judge Doris Cozart ended the drought and awarded Spirit Best In Show at the Springfield Kennel Club show in West Springfield MA and the 2058 points that went with it. Joining Spirit in the final was the Harrier, CH Downhome Family Tradition and the Brussels Griffon, CH Cilleine Masquerade. The Sealyham Terrier, CH Efbe's Hidalgo At Goodspice had spent three days in Reading with the Pointer, but decided to test the stronger competition in New England in hopes of the getting the big points. However, Charmin was waylaid in the Terrier Group by the White Bull Terrier, CH Action Chaos And Charisma, who had won the same group in 2007.
Check back with us tomorrow to find out how the other five top ten dogs fared this weekend.
