Terri Erickson is home whelping puppies, but she still managed to get this to us. The Affenpinscher, CH Tamarin Tug, was defeated in the breed today at the second show of the Palm Spring Kennel Club. The culprit was CH Pramada's Naughty Natalie, who had finished Best of Opposite Sex to Taser at last year’s Westminster. She is a joint venture of Taser’s breeder, Jackie Stacy and Pamela & David Peat, owned by Dean Gehnert & Lucy Bitz, and handled by Shea Skinner. Now that’s keeping it in the family.
An anonymous reader has alerted us to two more BIS winners. The Pointer, CH Cookieland Seasyde Hollyberry, has made it two in a row at the Clemson Kennel Club, winning another Best in Pendleton SC today. Also getting a BIS, at yesterday's Greater Daytona Dog Fanciers Association event in Deland FL, was the Rough Collie, CH Sylvan Argent Simply Irresistible. “Sax” is bred by Dr Cindi Bossart, James Efron & Connie Dubois and is owned by Dr. Cindi Bossart, Connie DuBois, Nancy Comparato, Debbie Green, Dr. Stacy Smith and Leah Warner. We know handler Diane Steele has Sax on weekends. Wonder who gets her holidays and summer vacation? Well, Hillary says it takes a village and we congratulate them all.
