Thanks to an anonymous tipster, we have been notified that some poor little AKC computer nerd spent his/her Sunday morning uploading dog show results and here they are!
First, we play catchup. On Friday, four of our top ten gathered in Yuma AZ for the first day of a four day weekend, the Scottish Deerhound, CH Jaraluv’s Ouija, her kennel mate, the Giant Schnauzer, CH Galilee's Pure Of Spirit, the Scottish Terrier, CH Roundtown Mercedes Of Maryscot, and the Affenpischer, CH Tamarin Tug. All four won their respective groups, giving Judge Susan St. John Brown one of the toughest finals this year. When it was all over, it was the Affenpinscher posing for the photographer. No sooner was he done than he was off to the airport for the flight to East Lansing MI where there more points and less competition. Those left behind had another go at it on Saturday, but only two made it to the final seven. The Deerhound, Ouija, finished third in the Hound Group, failing to make it to Judge Zell Von Pohlman’s ring. Judge Pohlman also went for a toy dog, the Pomeranian, CH CR Tuff Guy of Isabella. “Macho“, a multiple BIS winner, was bred by Robert & Celeste Solano and Lori Drew, is co owned by the Solanos, R & M Smith and P&B Pongsak and handled by Curtiss G Smith.
The Affenpinscher, Taser, made it to East Lansing Saturday and the final ring of the Ingham County Kennel Club show and Judge Gareth Morgan-Jones liked him well enough to give him the big rosette and the 1907 points that went with the BIS. Up in New England two of our top ten are in Fitchburg MA at the Worcester Kennel Club show, the Pointer, CH Cookieland Seasyde Hollyberry, and the Harrier, CH Downhome Family Tradition. The Pointer, Holly, made it through the Sporting Group Saturday to take part in Judge Richard William Powell’s BIS ring, but the Harrier, Coda, finished second in the Hound Group behind the Rhodesian Ridgeback, CH Of Afrikka Spring Valley Dorian Gray JC, and Holly made the most of it, adding yet another top prize to her resume.
We are stilling waiting to hear from our last three ranked dogs, the Standard Poodle, the Brussels Griffon, and the Pembroke Welsh Corgi. If anyone has seen them, let us all know.
