We have always considered ourselves good with the written word. We rarely consult a thesaurus or a dictionary, as evidenced by our frequent misspellings. However, the Pointer, CH Cookieland Seasyde Hollyberry, is beginning to strain our ability to come up with yet a new superlative.
Once again the Pointer, Holly, and handler Michael Scott, have accepted another Best In Show trophy, the latest coming from Judge Whitney Coombs at the Annapolis Kennel Club in West Friendship MD, pushing the number of BIS in a row to a perfect ten. Some might try to marginalize this accomplishment by dismissing the competition. However, Holly‘s fellow finalists included the 2008 best Pekingese, CH Pequest Match Point, the latest multiple BIS winning Standard Poodle from Joseph Vergnetti, CH Hillwood Dassin De Lovely, as well as the Irish Terrier, CH Fleet St Fenway Fan, the Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen, CH Monkham's Famous Grouse, the Rottweiler, CH Ecko Ridges American Justice VVonWilhelms, and the Bearded Collie, CH Tolkien Raintree Mister Baggins.
We know this winning streak will eventually end, but you have to admit, it’s a pretty fun way to start the year.
