We’ve just returned from the oral surgeon after a double extraction. We offer this information not in a search for sympathy, but as an explanation for drug induced errors that are sure to follow.
We now have your results from the Clinton Iowa Kennel Club’s double header. Lining up Saturday in Dewitt IA to see BIS judge Loraine Boutwell were the Gordon Setter, CH Firethorn & Sandpiper Easy On The Eyes, the Irish Wolfhound, CH Druick Rock Shellane Skylark JC, the Bullmastiff, CH Royal Allr’s Of Steelsaheart, the Norfolk Terrier, CH Max-Well’s Viper, the Pug, CH Tupelo Shoboat Tu China Tu, the Tibetan Terrier, CH Cedar C Barnstorm’s L&D Edition, and the Rough Collie, CH Highcroft Bourne Ultimatum.
It was the first BIS this year for the three year old Tibetan Terrier, who finished 2008 at the top of his breed with eight BIS to his credit. Congratulations to breeder/owner Donna Ogden, co-owners, Patricia Bernardo & Mary Lou Laffler, and handler Lynn R Meyer.
On Sunday he, the Norfolk, and the Pug all tried again with judge Jane Roppolo. She also had the German Wirehaired Point, CH Ripsnorter Mt View Lookout, the Rhodesian Ridgeback, CH Adili’s American Idol, the Samoyed, CH Polar Mist, X-Tasy, and the Pembroke Welsh Corgi, CH Tim Tam Avante Garde.
The scrappy little Norfolk turned three on Monday and what better way to celebrate a birthday than to win a Best In Show? He is the latest collaboration of handler Susan Kipp & breeder Barbara Miller. Barbara was the 2007 AKC Breeder of the Year and has produced over 100 champion Norfolks including ten BIS winners. Congratulations to Susan and Barbara.
