The first of the weekend’s results are in from the Middlesex Kennel Club show up in Boston MA. We have been concentrating on the nation’s top ten dogs, but as we often have stated there are always good dogs at an AKC event. This show drew three top ten dogs and an additional two from the top twenty. Not all made it to Judge Charles Foley’s Best In Show ring. The Harrier, CH Downhome Family Tradition was the most notable victim of the day’s extreme competition, failing to place in the Hound Group.

CH Dramatic Story Of Sherry Shoot Jp

The remaining four all gathered for the final festivities, the Pointer, CH Cookieland Seasyde Hollyberry, the Boxer, CH Dramatic Story Of Sherry Shoot Jp, the SealyhamTerrier, CH Efbe's Hidalgo At Goodspice, and the Pug, CH Tupelo Shoboat Tu China Tu. The Pointer walked away with the best silver and 834 points to get just a little closer to the number one ranking.

CH Woodside Pacino

Finally, we have this just in from a reader, two of our top ten dogs were at the Northlake Kennel Club Of Greater Covington in Biloxi MS today. the Brussels Griffon, CH Cilleine Masquerade, and the Affenpinscher, CH Tamarin Tug were duking it out in the Toy Group. Taser’s been on a streak lately, but today was Lincoln’s day, as he took the top Toy award. However,it was the country’s number 20 dog, the German Shepherd Dog, CH Woodside Pacino, who went Best In Show. “Tony”, who is handled by Shepherd legend James Moses, is one of our picks for dogs to watch in 2009. Thanks to all you readers who help us keep up to the minute.
