We hadn’t heard much from Region Five this weekend, just that the Golden Retriever, CH Toasty‘s Treasure Island, had posted the big win on Saturday‘s Rio Honda Kennel Club show in Albuquerque NM. We gave you some of Saturday’s finalists as well, but we now can tell you that the Bernese Mountain Dog, CH Mountair’s Genuine Draught, the Kerry Blue Terrier, CH Kallehan’s Hot N Spicy Of Jorkaite, and the Standard Poodle, Calae’s Standing Ovation, were all there.

CH Tamarin Tug

Sunday’s final was judged by Anne Bolus. Treasure was back, as were the PBGV, Afterglow Ebeneezer, the Bernese, the Affenpinscher, CH Tamarin Tug, and the Old English Sheepdog, CH Bugaboo’s Georgie Girl. Making their first final appearance of the weekend were the Wire Fox Terrier, CH Kathrich Maximo $$$, and the Miniature Poodle, CH Alegria Shamus.

BIS went to the dog that loves to shock, Taser, the Affenpinscher. Always on, this little guy has five BIS so far this year.

It was the little redheaded Lakeland, Ranger, marching away with the BIS.
