DOGS2WATCH. Come on, some of you must be old enough to remember Groucho Marx’s TV game show, You Bet Your Life, but I digress. As I said, no sooner had I used the DOGS2WATCH appellation, I got the show results from the Glens Falls Kennel Club event in Queensbury NY reporting that DOG2WATCH, the Toy Poodle, CH Smash JP Moon Walk, had won his first BIS of the year. Walker had an abbreviated 2008 campaign, but did manage to win three BIS last year.
Joining Walker in Judge Sandy Gunn’s ring, were the English Setter, CH Reidwood Red Alert, the Rhodesian Ridgeback, CH Of Afrikka Spring Valley Dorian Gray JC, the Irish Terrier, CH Fleet St Fenway Fan, the Bulldog, the Portugese Water Dog, CH Ebb Tide's Poetry In Motion, CH Kepley’s Showbiz Razzle Dazzle, and the Old English Sheepdog, CH Windfall Slamdunk. Hound Group Judge Gary Doerge could not find a place in his top four for the 2008 top Hound, CH Downhome Family Tradition, giving the Group 4 to a class dog, the Afghan Hound, Gengala Nobody Bizness, an Australian champion. And tomorrow’s secret word is…Ringer.
