SHOW RESULTS BEFORE THE MALL CLOSES!
It’s Friday evening and my wife and daughter are home from the mall and the front room is full of shopping bags. I’ve been playing the doting father and husband, feigning interest in the spoils of the day, nodding and murmuring admiration as they display one captured prize after the next, all the time wondering how I can find someone who knows the results from the Yuma (Arizona) Kennel Club Show.
However, we do have the results from the first day of the Savannah (Georgia) Kennel Club show. As we expected it was not a large show, 576 dogs present and competing, but, like any AKC show there was something to admire. One of our top ten, the Sealyham Terrier, CH Efbe's Hidalgo At Goodspice, was there and made it all the way to Judge Pete Dawkins final seven. Charmin was joined by the ASCOB Cocker Spaniel, CH Lydgate Rise N’ Shine, the Basnji, CH Klassic’s Ms Mata Hauri JC, the Doberman Pinscher, CH Alpha's Road Warrior, the Pug, CH Norkus Risky Business, the Bichon Frise, CH Allure s U Chenoa Joe, and the German Shepherd Dog, CH Shoal Creek s Sangria V Barick. In addition to Charmin, the Cocker, the Basenji, and the Bichon have previously won Best In Show, and the remaining three are young dogs that are already challenging their elders.
But it was the Cocker, who went BIS last weekend over the Affenpinscher, CH Tamarin Tug, recording the weekend’s first BIS. However, I have to admit, I look for the Doberman and German Shepherd to add the “BIS Winner” prefix to their names before too long. Take a look at the photos. Don’t you agree?
