Ok, we know you guys on the West Coast have been patiently waiting for show results, but you do get up later than we all do. The big entries were up in the Pacific Northwest in Seattle.

On Saturday, Judge Virginia Lynne saw the seven best of more than 1500 dogs. They were Irish Setter, CH Ashton Peaceful Easy Feeling, the Afghan Hound, CH Polo's The Aviator, the Doberman Pinscher, Foxfire's All The GiitzNGlamour, the Smooth Fox Terrier, CH Warfox Double Exposure, the Chinese Crested, CH Deja Vu B Careful What U Wish For, the Boston Terrier, CH Sunglo's Sparkling Wine Cooler, the Belgian Tervuren, CH Sky Acres Spy Plane. The Smooth Fox, the 2009 Westminster BOS, took home her first BIS of the year. This two year old girl had been knocking at the BIS door all year, and we think she is a DOG2WATCH.

Sunday, Judge Sandra Goose Allen had the same Smooth Fox, Irish Setter, and Afghan as Ms Lynne, but she also had the Portuguese Water Dog, CH Aviators Luck Be A Lady, the Smooth Chihuahua, CH Baroque Creme De Cassis, the Standard Poodle, CH Randenn Tristar Affirmation, and the Puli, CH Lajosmegyi Singin In The Rain. And yes, it was the Poodle, Yes, picking up career BIS number 95.

Meanwhile, down in Victorville CA, Judge Darryl Vice was kicking off the Apple Valley Kennel Club’s two shows. His finalists included the Brittany, CH Gourley’s DFL 99 Carat Diamond, the Basset Hound, CH Splash’s The Professor, the Boxer CH Belmar’s Desert Gold Strike, the Colored Bull Terrier, CH Mystique The Grinch, the Maltese , Scruffy’s More Than A Memory, the Dalmatian, CH Xanadu’s Angel Sabrina, and the Pembroke Welsh Corgi, CH Coventry Vanity Fair. The two year old Bull Terrier, bred by Taryn Johnston, Susie Harris, & Duff Harris and owned by Johnston & Lorene Wilson, walked away with the heavy silver and his first Best In Show. Congratulations to them all.

Sunday, Judge Jean Zuver’s repeat visitors were the the Maltese, the Dalmatian and the Corgi. Maiking their first appearance of the weekend were the Weimaraner, CH Smokycity Silhouette Dbl Ur Pleasure, the Saluki, CH Srinagar Glory Halelujah Ladyhawk, the Bullmastiff, CH Escalades All Tricked Out, and the Wire Fox Terrier, CH Kathrich Maximo. No career firsts here. It was last year’s number one Herding Dog, the multiple BIS winning Corgi, Carly, taking home the Best In Show.

We’ll be back later with a weekend wrap up.


  1. Congrats to all BIS winners and special Kudos to
    CH Warfox Double Exposure on her firs BIS of the year!

  2. Ch Kathrich Maximo is a Wire Fox Terrier, not a Smooth. Ch Warfox Double Exposure has had a Best In Show win already, but in 2008.
