We end our weekend round up where we left off, in sunny California, where even the dog show crowd managed to get in an Oscar watching party after the Saturday and Sunday Silver Bay Kennel Club Of San Diego shows. Del Mar may not be as glamorous as Hollywood, but the beaches are better, and this weekend, the dogs were there.
Saturday, Judge Arthur Davison, put up one of the many fine Boxers we have in the country this year, CH Capri’s Magic Maker Of Sassy. Adding a bit of doggy glamour to the festivities were a trio of last year’s top ten dogs, the Affenpinscher, CH Tamarin Tug, the Standard Poodle, CH Randenn Tristar Affirmation, and the Pembroke Welsh Corgi, CH Coventry Vanity Fair. Also in the hunt for heavy silver were the Wirehaired Pointing Griffon, CH Flatbrook Royal Point Attitude JH, the Norwegian Elkhound, CH Vin-Melca’s Voyager, and the West Highland White Terrier, CH Serendipity’s Crazed About You.
The Elkhound and the big Poodle were the only two holdovers that showed up Sunday in Judge Edd Bivin’s BIS ring. They were joined by the ASCOB Cocker Spaniel, CH Mei-Hardt's Shining Quasar, the Great Dane, CH Shalako Conspiracy of Rondomar, the Bedlington Terrier, Boardwalk’s Bling Bling, the Toy Fox Terrier, CH Ultra Quest Be Bop’n Bobbie, and the Bearded Collie, CH Brigadoon Daybar Believe It Or Not. And while the stars in Hollywood may be fading, those in our world still burn brightly, with the Standard Poodle, “Yes” providing us the kind of Hollywood ending we like, another Best In Show.
