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.
