We gave you most of the Northwest Region, Region Six, results already, but we do have Sunday’s results from the Sacramento Kennel Club show. You will recall that Saturday we saw the Giant Schnauzer, CH Galilee's Pure Of Spirit, win her 100th BIS.

CH Sanherpinc Paisa

After that moment, it would be hard to top the drama, but judge Donovan Thompson to give us a thrilling final nonetheless. Actually, the drama started earlier in the day when Judge Mareth Kipp placed the number one dog in the country, the Scottish Terrier, CH Roundtown Mercedes At Maryscot, third in her Terrier Group behind the Welsh Terrier, CH Sanherpinc Paisa, and the Irish Terrier, CH Fleet St Fenway Fan. In no way was is this an observation about judge Kipp’s decision, but it is a commentary on the quality of the 361 Terriers present and competing. The Irish Terrier had beaten the Scottie earlier in the week at the NORCAL Terrier show. The Welsh has been finishing second to the Scottie all year.

CH Penndragon Masaniello

The Welsh, Paisa, moved on to judge Thompson’s final seven along with the Welsh Springer Spaniel, CH Royailes Hasta B A Cut Above, the Basset Hound, CH Blossomhill’sMamma Mia, the Boxer, CH Capri’s Magic Maker Of Sassy, the Affenpinscher, CH Tamarin Tug, the Standard Poodle, CH Penndragon Masaniello, and the Pembroke Welsh Corgi, CH Coventry Vanity Fair.

And Paisa, who just turned three, would collect her third BIS and she did it the hard way, beating three of last year’s top ten dogs along the way. Brava Paisa!

Next, we have to go back to Region One


  1. I got to watch it happen and it was thrilling!!! Woody and Paisa were awesome that day!

  2. what a nice write up! We drove down from Canada to see Paisa and NorCal Terrier show, and you are right, watching Paisa and Woody in the group & best line up was amazing! Breath-taking actually! As a co-owner I might be biased, but this certainly was what I observed - wonderful show with lot's of beautiful dogs!
