Venues do not get anymore genteel than the Ladies Kennel Association Of America in Oyster Bay NY. For those of you not familiar with the history of Long Island, Oyster Bay is part of the fabled “Gold Coast”, home to the Astors, the Vanderbilts, and a President named Roosevelt (no, not that one.. the fun one)

CH Efbe’s Merci Pour Le Poivre

However, the competition at today’s show was fierce. Lining up for judge Loraine Boutwell, the Labrador Retriever, CH Casbar’s Hart To Hart, the Afghan Hound, CH Nachtmusik’s Spirit Warrior JC, the Boxer, CH Hi-Tech’sSouthern Belle, the Sealyham Terrier, CH Efbe’s Merci Pour Le Poivre, the Miniature Pinscher, CH Kimro’s Soldier Boy, a Tibetan Terrier from the classes, Panchen’s Great Ball Of Fire, and the Briard, CH Sendero’s Simpy Irresistible.

BIS went to the Sealyham, Merci, the second all breed BIS this year for the latest from breeder Frances Bergeron and handler Margery Good. Merci is co-owned by Margery and Sandra Middlebrooks.
