We are ready to move on to the Great Lakes Region, Region Three. Over the weekend we gave you complete results on the Michigan shows and a peek at the Kentucky shows, but we have talked about the McKinley Kennel Club shows in Canton OH.

CH Hillwood Dassin De-Lovely

Saturday, Keke Kahn made the BIS call from these seven, the Golden Retriever, CH Goldentrip Snow Dream, the 15” Beagle, CH Windkist's Stealin Hearts, the Boxer, CH Avalon's Urban Legend, the Lakeland Terrier, CH Talydales Friend Of The Force, the Papillon, CH StarSighn's Trickn St Nick, the Standard Poodle, CH Hillwood Dassin De-Lovely, and the Puli, CH Catsun Corinth.

Her BIS was the Poodle, Sissy. Admittedly we don’t really know how to refer to this girl. So we will just say it this way. She is the top Standard currently competing every weekend. How’s that. She’s officially the number one Non-Sporting Dog. We look for her to improve her top twenty standing every month.

CH White Eagle's Celestial Sky

Sunday, it was Paula Hartinger in the final ring with the Sissy and the same Golden and Lakeland. Also on hand were the Pharaoh Hound, TiaRa Ne-Ne-Kabu Abu Simbel Ankh, the Samoyed, CH White Eagle's Celestial Sky, the Smooth Chihuahua, CH Ayrwen Star Kissed Delight, and the Australian Shepherd, CH Fallfires Frist Frost.

Best In Show went to the Samoyed, Celeste. Now, Celeste doesn’t have as many breed points as some Sammies and she doesn’t have as many groups as others, but she has the most all breed BIS of any in her breed. Which would you rather have?

CH TMC Victorious Natasha For Sissy

Now, about those Paducah KY shows. Saturday, it was Elaine Mathis with the English Springer Spaniel, CH Capulets Innovation, the Irish Wolfhound, CH Highgates Andrew Of The Ridge, the Rottweiler, CH TMC Victorious Natasha For Sissy, the Lakeland Terrier, CH Hi-Kel Terrydale Soldier Of Fortune, the Pomeranian, CH Castiles Endless Love, the Standard Poodle, CH Bar-None Dawin Travelin Man, and the Shetland Sheepdog, CH Jesstar Affirmation.

BIS went to one of the most popular red heads since Lucy, the Lakeland, Ranger. She is currently the country’s number three Terrier and number 15 all breed dog.

CH Hi-Kel Terrydale Soldier Of Fortune

We told you that the Smooth Collie, CH Sunnland's Grand Entrance HIC, was Ellen Fetter’s BIS on Sunday, but we didn’t tell you the other finalists were Ranger, the Wolfhound, the English Springer Spaniel, CH Capulets Innovation, the Great Dane, KCWW V Mariners Skookum Chuck, the Pug, CH Brazos River Legal Lion, and the Bulldog, Benchmarks Murphy Brown Of Chenoweth.

Next, we have Region Four.
