The Solano County Fairgrounds, adjacent to the Six Flags theme park, is not the most glamorous venue in the Bay area, but there was plenty of glamour among the competitors. Attendees at yesterday’s Santa Cruz Kennel Club show were treated to another Best In Show performance by the 2008 Highest Scoring Dog in Conformation, the Giant Schnauzer, CH Galilee's Pure Of Spirit.
In addition to the Giant, Spirit, Judge Stephen Hubbel had the Wirehaired Pointing Griffon, CH Flatbrook Royal Point Attitude JH, the Petit Bassett Griffon Vendeen, CH Rokeena Carte Blanche, the Smooth Fox Terrier, CH Warfox Double Exposure, the Pekingese, CH Pequest's Grand Slam, and a duo of Paray pooches from Tray Pittman, the Bichon Frise, CH Paray’s Rime Time, and the Shetland Sheepdog, CH Paray Cirque De Soleil.
For those of us keeping score (and who isn’t?), this was all breed BIS number 97. Got the fireworks ready?
