There was a fierce snow storm in upstate New York, but it didn’t stop exhibitors in Hamburg NY. Friday, local favorite, the Labrador Retriever, CH Millmar's Truely High Lites, grabbed the BIS from Judge Peter Baines at the Kennel Club of Buffalo. The two year old yellow bitch, bred and owned by June Marie Miller, was piloted by Karen Mammano.
Rounding out the final seven were the Afghan Hound, CH Shenandoah Smoke And Mirrrors, the Siberian Husky, CH Kontoki's A Bend In The Road, the Irish Terrier, CH Breezy's X-Tra Top Priorty, 2008 top Shih Tzu, CH Hallmark Jolei Surfer Girl, the American Eskimo Dog, CH Nuuktok's Atka Inukshuk, and the 2008 top Old English Sheepdog, CH Lambluv's Daydream Believer.
The OES, Winston, bred by Ron Szekeres & Kathy McBride, owned by Jere Marder & Kay Richardson, and handled by OES guru Jere, would dominate the location for the next two days winning both the second day of the KC of Buffalo on Saturday and the Ashtabulas Kennel Club Show. Joining the bobtail on Saturday in Judge Edeltraud Laurin’s BIS ring were the English Setter, CH Editions Good Morning America, the Greyhound, the CH Fairlanes Lorricbrook Lola, Border Terrier, Tretile's No Rest For The Wicked, the Pekingese, CH Fairisle Starr Struck, and the Standard Poodle, CH Hillswood Dassin De-Lovely.
We are still trying to get the rest of Sunday’s results from the frozen north. If you know the group winners from yesterday’s show, please share their names with all of us.
