If things seem to be repetitive in Maryland, the crowd in Brooksville FL seems intent on mixing things up. The German Shepherd Dog, CH Shoal Creek s Sangria V Barick, was the only dog from yesterday’s final to make it back to the BIS ring at the Tampa Bay Kennel Club event. Also presenting themselves to Judge Robert Indeglia for consideration were the Black Cocker Spaniel, CH Bracon’s Leaping Lily Pads, the Rhodesian Ridgeback, CH Adili's American Idol , the Doberman Pinscher, CH Allure Blazing Star Alisaton, the Airedale Terrier, CH Stirling’s Cool Hand Luke, the King Charles & Ruby English Toy Spaniel, CH Southdown Nonetheless, and the Lhasa Apso CH Rushmar’s Charmer.
Keeping with the spread the wealth theme, the three year old Dobie bitch walked off with the BIS, her first. Bred by Carmen Pitts and Gwen DeMilta, and owned by Carmen, Nancy Bosley, and Julie Porter, she is handled by Gwen’s daughter, Carissa DeMilta Shimpeno.
