It’s Monday morning and there is lots of news to report. First the bad news…Mother Nature has intervened in Savannah GA causing the cancellation of Sunday’s and today’s Beaufort Kennel Club shows in Savannah GA. The rain flooded the show grounds leaving the Sealyham Terrier, CH Efbe's Hidalgo At Goodspice, high and dry with no points for the two days. We extend our condolences to the club and all the disappointed competitors.

Up in New England the weather was kinder to the Worcester Kennel Club, the Pointer, CH Cookieland Seasyde Hollyberry, and the Harrier, CH Downhome Family Tradition. The Harrier, Coda, won a Group One and Judge Michael Faulkner gave the Pointer, Holly, a BIS. It’s snowing in East Lansing MI, but it was warm and toasty inside the show hall for the country’s number 19 dog, the English Setter, CH Chebaco Blames It On Trabeiz, who went Best In Show under Judge Robert Vandiver over the Affenpinscher, CH Tamarin Tug, at the Ingham County Kennel Club event.

Out in Yuma AZ it was warm and sunny at the Imperial Valley Kennel Club show, though two of our top dogs got the cold shoulder from judges. Both the Scottish Terrier, CH Roundtown Mercedes Of Maryscot, and the Scottish Deerhound, CH Jaraluv’s Ouija failed to get a group placement. However, the country‘s number ten dog, the Pembroke Welsh Corgi, CH Coventry‘s Vanity Fair, collected a Group One win and a spot in Judge Lee Anthony Reasin’s final seven. Joining Carly in the final was the country’s number one dog, the Giant Schnauzer, CH Galilee's Pure Of Spirit, who romped to another Best In Show.

Conspicuously absent from the weekend’s festivities were the Standard Poodle, CH Randenn Tristar Affirmation, and the Brussels Griffon, CH Cilleine Masquerade, allowing the Affenpinscher, Taser, to move into the number three spot, with almost as many points as frequent flier miles. Thanks goes out to all of you who have been sending in reports from the shows. It helps us be the first to give you all the dog show news.


  1. I hear that Lincoln went Best both days in Illinois

  2. I love the column and information, but PLEASE spell AIREDALE correctly. It's been being spelled without the first E. Keep up the good work.

    Thank you

  3. LOL. Thank you for bringing the misspelling to my attention. As a terrier owner, I should be beaten with a Kangol Grouser Hat. I know better than to rely on my spell checker. One typo and it perpetuates it forever. I've corrected all the errors. I'm glad you enjoyed the blog. Tell your friends about us.

  4. The Scottish Terrier was not shown in the group Sunday at Yuma, so it's inaccurate to say she failed to get a group placement. She did win the breed.
