We don’t often take note of a Puppy BIS win, but here’s one we thought you might find interesting. While perusing the Detroit kennel Club show results, I noticed that a Scottish Deerhound dog, Lehigh Ennis Carmichael, was selected Best Puppy In Show. "Ennis", bred by Paula Pascoe & Pam Smithson, owned by Paula & her husband, Grant Winchell, and handled by Grant, was sired by CH Jaraluv Michael out of CH Lehigh Darkwynd Caragh.
Both sire and dam are multiple BIS winners. Deerhound fans may recognize CH Jaraluv Michael as the sire of the top winning Scotttish Deerhound in history, CH Jaraluv Ouija, who brought us so many memorable appearances this past year, including a Group One at the 2008 AKC/Eukanuba National Championship. At only seven months old, we may be looking at one of next year’s top ten dogs. It may be a little too early to call Ennis a DOG2WATCH, but it’s not too early to say congratulations to Paula Pascoe, Pam Smithson, and Grant Winchell and good luck with this eye catching boy.
