Out with the old. In with the new. The first all breed Best In Show of 2009 was recorded yesterday by the five year old Puli dog, CH Cordmaker Field Of Dreams, with Judge Robert Forsyth making the call at the Greater Daytona Dog Fanciers Association in Deland FL. “Conrad” was bred by the quartet of P Turner & A Quigley & A & S Lawrence, is owned by Susan Huebner & Jackie Beaudoin, and handled by Linda Pitts. The dog with the dreds finished 2008 as the 16th highest scoring AKC dog in conformation.
Joining the Puli in yesterday’s final seven were the ASCOB Cocker Spaniel, CH Lydgate Rise N Shine, Petis Basset Griffon Vendeen dog, CH Rokeena Carte Blanche, the Rottweiler, CH Loral's Number One Caesar, the Smooth Fox Terrier, CH J'cobe Kemosabe Vigilante Justice, the Pomeranian, Starfire's Kiss Me Big, and the Bulldog, CH Emerald Red Baron. The Smooth Fox, who is juat 21 months old, left last year's top Terrier, the Sealyham, CH Efbe's Hidalgo at Goodspice, back in the group with a second place rosette. He caused quite a stir when he went Best of Winners at Montgomery County back in October and already has one BIS to his credit. Will he be one of our new top ten? Stay tuned.
