The masses in Syracuse NY may be licking their wounds over their loss to Oklahoma, but we are licking our chops over the terrific weekend of show dogs just completed. Judge Michael Heflin closed out the weekend calling the Best In Show at the Onondaga Kennel Association show.

CH Efbe’s Merci Pour Le Poivre

Lining up for his consideration were the Labrador Retriever, CH Casbar's Hart To Hart, the 15" Beagle, CH Torquay's Midnight Confession, the Doberman Pinscher, CH Allure Blazing Star Alisaton, the Sealyham Terrier, CH Efbe’s Merci Pour Le Poivre, the Toy Poodle, CH Smash JP Moon Walk, the Standard Poodle, Afterglow Sugar Daddy, and the Bouvier des Flandres, CH Quiche's Demetrius.

It was just a matter of time before the Sealyham Terrier, Merci, picked up a BIS here in the US. He was Canada’s top dog before joining his more famous brother, CH Efbe’s Hidalgo At Goodspice, here in the US last year to stand in for the family at the 2008 AKC/Eukanuba National Championship. Since taking the Terrier Group there he has been mostly on the sidelines while Charmin finished out his show career. However, since Charmin retired earlier this month, Merci has been consistently making final sevens. Congratulations to breeder Frances Bergeron and owner/handler Margery Good and co-owner San dra Middlebrooks.

  2. I see there is another winning dog from the afterglow kennels. did anyone see the poodle sugar daddy? i think he is a son of the big tease who was reserve best at crufts.

  3. Yes, AfterGlow Sugar Daddy is Am Eng Ch AfterGlow The Big Tease's son.
