The largest show this weekend, with 2522 dogs entered, was in the heartland, in Indianapolis IN, where the members of the Hoosiers Kennel Club know how to pick a name. And Judge Darryl Vice knows how to pick a BIS winner, tapping the Staffordshire Bull Terrier, CH Cornerstone Soliloquy, as his top dog.
The finalists included the Gordon Setter, CH Firethorn & Sandpiper's Easy On The Eyes, the Afghan Hound, CH Karakush Dot Com A U, the Alaskan Malamute, CH Nanuke's Still The One, the Pug, CH Tupelo ShoBoat Tu China Tu, the Standard Poodle, CH Bar-None Dawin Travelin' Man, and the Old English Sheepdog, CH Lambluv's Daydream Believer. It was a very big first BIS for the 16 moth old bitch, “Piper”. Congratulations to breeders Damon Folmar & Sam Royall, owners, Maryanne & Larry Goethals, and handler Holley Eldred.
