It’s only Friday morning and we already have results from four all breed shows and two changes in our national rankings. With the title of Number One Dog up for grabs, the big prize Thursday was the trophy for BIS at the Sandusky Kennel Club show in Columbus OH with 1549 dogs showing. Three top ten dogs were there and all three were in Judge Mareth K. Kipp’s final seven: the Pointer, CH Cookieland Seasyde Hollyberry, the Giant Schnauzer, CH Galilee's Pure Of Spirit, and the Affenpinscher, CH Tamarin Tug. At the end of the day it was Spirit walking away with the top prize, retrieving the title of Number One Dog in the nation from Holly. Oh, well. It’s good to be Queen, if only for a day.

Three more top ten dogs were in competition on Thursday. The Harrier, CH Downhome Family Tradition, was in Syracuse NY watching Judge James Covey give the BIS to the Norfolk Terrier, CH Cause For Celebration, at the North Country Kennel Club event. The Brussels Griffon, CH Cilleine Masquerade, had to get past the number eleven dog, the Pug, Tupelo Shoboat Tu China Tu, in the Toy Group, to take the Best In Show trophy from Judge Pamela Peat at the Town And Country Kennel Club show in Chickasha, OK. Lincoln picked up 698 points pulling within 171 points of Taser and the title of Top Toy Dog.

The National Capital Kennel Club show, in West Friendship MD, produced a very respectable Thursday entry with 962 present and competing. The one top ten dog present, the Sealyham Terrier, CH Efbe's Hidalgo At Goodspice, caught the eye of Judge Allen M. Buckner and took home another BIS. The win was good enough for Charmin to bolt past Taser into the number four spot in our ranking. What will today bring? Check back tomorrow and find out.


  1. Hello, is there any way that you can post about the amazing Field Spaniel, Ch. Evan's Rumor Has It who recently went Best in Show this past friday. This is a very rare thing to happen in this breed and all those in his fan club (myself included) are very proud of him.

  2. Ashley, Rumor lost in the Breed on Friday, 7 November. Are you talking about yesterday, 14 November? I don't have all of Fridays results in yet, but you can bet I will be featuring any rare breed that picks up a BIS. If it some other recent date, give me the date and name of the show and I will definitely give Rumor a special mention.

  3. He won on November 14 at the Chenango Valley KC the judges were Breed & Group Judge James Covey and Best in Show was Professor Douglas Taylor. I would love to see a feature about him. He is an amazing example of the breed. I have worked with him and his father, Reggie, Ch. Coralmist Close Encounter.
