In Region Five, the South Central Region, there were shows everywhere. So we will break up this report for those with short attention spans.
CH Vineyards Bad Boy
In Oklahoma we had three shows in Grove OK. On Friday the Northeast Oaklahoma Kennel Club held its first of two shows this weekend with judge Jane Kay assembling the Irish Setter, CH Vineyards Bad Boy, the smooth Dachshund, CH Bessdach Drisheen Hot Shot, the Siberian Husky, CH Antaras Put On The Red Light, the Norwich Terrier, CH Skyscot’s Poker Chip, the Yorkshire Terrier, CH Starbarks Dreamgirl, the French Bulldog, CH Raindrops Justus Lifes A Game, and the Old English Sheepdog, CH Lambluvs Daydream Believer.
It’s always hard to overlook a red head and the Irish Setter would not be denied his first all breed Best In Show. Congratulations to breedrs/owners D Johnson, J Hubbard, K Salfi, Drs R & B O'Keefe, and handler Laura L King
On Saturday the club asked judge James Fredericksen to chose from the same Irish Setter and OES or the Basenji, CH Ab Rafiki The Icon Of Cool, the Alaskan Malamute, CH Sno Classic Play The Game, the Kerry Blue Terrier, CH Irisfingel Blue Badge, the Yorkshire Terrier, CH Galway Dark Eyes, and the Bulldog, Milams Hug-o-Bull Cap'n Morgan.
The two year old Kerry Blue, Finnegan, picked up his first BIS of the year. Congratulations to breeders Juan Carlos Diaz Portales & Montse Sanchez Valverde, owner George Sullivan, and handler Doug Carlson.
CH Skyscot's Poker Chip
Sunday, it was the Mid Continent Kennel Club’s turn to host and Jon Coles’s turn to judge Best In Show. His finalists were the Basenji, the Norwich , the Golden Retriever, Goldentrip Snow Dreams, the Great Dane, CH Kairov Code of Excellence, the Papillion CH Queen Bess Jp World Idol, the Standard Poodle, CH Dawin Spitfire, and the German Shepherd Dog, Heidelbergs Oklahoma Natashac.
And it was the dog bought with the proceeds of a lucky hand of cards, the Norwich, Poker Chip, taking home another BIS, his second.
We’ll be right back with more Region Five results.
