THE FIGHT FOR NUMBER ONE
It probably won’t last long, but we say give credit where credit is due. By our numbers, and they are our numbers and ours alone, we have a new number one dog. Yesterday’s shut out of the Giant Schnauzer, CH Galilee's Pure Of Spirit has allowed the Pointer, CH Cookieland Seasyde Hollyberry to take over the number one spot, if by the slimmest of margins. By our calculations Holly has amassed 93 BIS this year and 113,080 points to Spirit’s 64 Bests and 112,855. Folks, that’s a difference of just 225 points or 0.2 percent. Now that’s a horse race. As we said, Spirit is competing today and Holly is packing her bags for the trip west. Thus, it is likely that Spirit will regain the lead by tomorrow morning.
