The Giant Schnauzer, CH Galilee's Pure Of Spirit, moved one step closer to the century milestone today, picking up BIS number 98 at the San Mateo Kennel Club show in Vallejo CA. This Best came courtesy of Judge , Dr Robert D Smith.

Also in contention for the BIS were the German Wirehaired Pointer, CH Star K’s Mile Hi Valentine, the Basset Hound , CH Blossomhil’s Mamma Mia, the Kerry Blue Terrier, CH Perrisblu Paris, the Pekingese, CH Pequest Grand Slam, the Chow Chow, CH D-Jin Gang Of Anna Kennel, and the Shetland Sheepdog, CH Paray Cirque De Soleil.

We think you should keep an eye on the Kerry Blue, a four year old bitch, that was campaigned heavily last year on the east coast by handler Ernesto Lara. She ended 2008 as the number one Kerry Blue and the 15th highest scoring Terrier. It should be interesting to see how she fares under the direction of Bill McFadden who handled the unforgettable Kerry Blue, CH Torums Scarf Michael, know worldwide as Mick.
