While we were all focused on the rivalry between the the Giant Schnauzer, CH Galilee's Pure Of Spirit, and the Pointer, CH Cookieland Seasyde Hollyberry, another great dog, the Sealyham Terrier, CH Efbe's Hidalgo At Goodspice, ran away with Judge Robert Frost's heart and the BIS title at today's Santa Cruz Kennel Club show in San Mateo CA, proving once again that no one can predict the ourcome of an AKC dog show.
The win complicates the race for number one. If either the Giant or the Pointer wins tomorrow's Oakland Kennel Club show, she will be the 2008 number one dog. However, if neither wins, the Giant may win the national title by the slimmest of margins, 200 to 300 points.
