Today we caught a plane at 6:00 AM and managed to visit DC’s Union Station and the Smithsonian’s Museum of Natural History. Ladies (and all of you who aspire to impress them), if you are ever in this town visit the National Gem Collection for the ultimate in bling. All the Hip Hop artists on the planet can not come close to the sparkle that Marie Antoinette, Marjorie Merriweather Post, and Janet Anneberg Hooker regularly displayed.

Here on this blog, we have our own kind of sparkle and it comes with fur. East Coast denizens that decided to eschew Kentuck and stay closer to home were in York PA for the last four days. We’ve told you about Thursday’s results, but we have kept you waiting for the remaining results.

On Friday, Judge Lydia Hutchinson assembled the Wirehaired Pointing Griffon, CH Fireside’s Sugar Plum Faerie, Irish Wolfhound, CH Wildisle Castkekeepers Quest, the Bernese Mountain Dog, CH Avatars Try Try Again, the Airedale, CH Stirling Cool Hand Luke, the Toy Poodle, CH Smash JP Moon Walk, the Standard poodle, CH Hillwood Dassin De-Lovely, and the Rough Collie, CH Kelso’s Moon Dancin,PT, before naming the Bernese her BIS. It was the first Best In Show for the three year old “Ty.”

On Saturday, The Bernese,, the Airedale, and the Standard Poodle, all showed up to plead their case with Judge Ken Ryner Jr who also entertained the Labrador Retriever, CH Casbar’s Hart To Hart, the Scottish Deerhound, CH Foxcliff Hickory Wind, the Italian Greyhound, CH Honores Lilly-Bell, and the Old English Sheepdog, CH Whisperwood’s Wild Biscuit. Ty showed all of us that lightening can strike twice in the same palce as he collected another top prize.

On Sunday, it was a doggy reunion as the Bernese, Ty, the Toy Poodle, Walker, the Standard Poodle, Sissy, and the Rough Collie, Prince Phillip all returned to see Judge Doris Cozart. Also looking for attention were the German Shorthaired Pointer, CH Fieldfines Back In Action,JH, the Rhodesian Ridgeback, CH Of Afrikka Spring Valley Dorian Gray JC, and the Kerry Blue Terrier, CH Bluebeard’s Suddenly Bridey. It was the Standard Poodle, Sissy, Thursday’s winner adding to her resume, taking home another BIS.

Now, we are going to help our daughter prepare for tomorrow’s Georgetown interview. But we will be up bright and early to give you the rest of this weekend’s results.
