We have an I-Reporter on site at the Little Fort Kennel Club Of Waukegan show in Grayslake IL.
She tells us that judge Robert Hutton’s finalists were the Irish Setter, CH Vineyard’s Bad Boy, the American Foxhound, CH Kiarry’s Foolish Pride, the Samoyed, CH Polar Mist X-Tasy, the Scottish Terrier, CH Roundtown Mercedes Of Maryscot, the Papillion, CH Arkeno’s Ears To You, the Standard Poodle, CH Bar-None Dawin Travelin’ Man, and the Bearded Collie, CH Dunhill Inspiration.
BIS went to the smallest dog in the ring, the Papillion, Cobb. This poster child for the phalaene, the drop ear version of the butterfly dog, has been knocking off the toughest competition in Toy Groups all year, and now has two all breed BIS this year. Congratulations to breeders/owners Kim McKay & Murray Berg, co-breeder James Barnes, co-owners Salwa Alfadl & Mary Jo Loye, and handler John Oulton.
