Her BIS was the Basenji, Blade, the country’s number one Basenji. Congratulations to breeders Wanda Pooley & Michelle Gahgan, owners Kim Witt, Michael Jameson MD, P Allison & W Pooley, and handler Erin Roberts.

Saturday the Montogmery Kennel Club asked Ralph Lemcke to wear the judge’s hat. Blade, the Cocker, the Bichon, and Bouvier were all back along with the Doberman Pinscher, CH Sun Styles Sensation, the Sealyham Terrier, CH Goodspice Sweep'em Up Hoover, and the Havanese, CH Harbors It Had To Be Me.

Once again the Basenji would grab the big rosette, his second of the weekend and the year.

Sunday, the host was Cahaba Kennel Club and the judge was Dr Gerard Penta, Five of th finalists were repeat visitors, the Basenji, the Doberman, the Welsh Terrier, the Havanes, and the Bouvier. Only the English Springer Spaniel, CH Kytrasw Keep To The Kode, and the Schipperke, CH Dante Fire When Ready, were making their first appearance of the weekend.

Making a great first impression was the Schipperke, a seven year old with much of the same team as the Basenji. Congratulations to breeder/owner Amy Gossman, co-breeder Gene Johnson, co-owners Michael Jameson MD & P Allison, and handler Erin Roberts.

We’re no where near through. Come back in a few.
