Yes, it’s just Thursday, but we do have show results for you from Decatur IL where judge Pat Trotter made the call at the Champaign Illinois Kennel Club’s show.

CH Tupelo ShoBoat Tu China Tu

Her finalists were the Irish Setter, CH Vineyard’s Bad Boy, the Plott, CH Alexander's Mob Boss Capone, the Great Dane, (to be named later), the Irish Terrier, CH Huntermoon Midnight Ryder, the Pug, Ch Tupelo ShoBoat Tu China Tu, the Tibetan Terrier, CH Cedar C Barnstrom L&D Edition. and the Old English Sheepdog, CH Lambluv’s Daydream Believer.

The little guy, the Pug, Boo, kept his hat in the ring for number one Toy Dog. Boo is within a handful of points of the Toy Poodle, CH Smash Jp Moon Walk, who currently holds the top Toy berth.


  1. Great Blog. You're the ESPN of the Dog World! Have to post a correction. The Irish that won the terrier group was Ch. Huntermoon Midnight Ryder, breeder, owner handled by Bruce Petersen.

  2. Thank you for the correction. I have to admit that I was guessing about the actual winner. I got an report that an Irish won the Terrier group, so I figured that I would throw up the name of the usual suspect and wait for someone to correct it or correct it tomorrow when AKC published the results. You got me the correct info in record time. Don't you just love participatory journalism. lol

  3. Just keep up the great work. Your reports are one of the best ideas to hit the dog world in years. Hope everyone gets the word out!

  4. Congrats to Boo's owners Michele and Jamie and the rest of their crew. Way to go. Thank you for the great blog it really keeps us fanciers up to date, great job Bill.
