We start our Monday morning mop up with a recap of the Orlando shows. While this is a departure from our normal approach, we have a method to our madness.

CH Campostela The Perfect Storm

Friday, the host club was the Brevard Kennel Club, the BIS judge was Patti Widdick Neale, and the seven final contenders were the Golden Retriever, CH Happy Hour Highmark Tasty, the Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen, CH Rokeena Carte Blanche, the Rottweiler, CH Camcasles Hollywood First Lady, the Skye Terrier, CH Cragsmoor Buddy Goodman, the Pug, CH Norkus Risky Business, the Miniature Poodle, CH Campostela The Perfect Storm, and the Puli, CH Cordmaker Field Of Dreams.

Friday’s Best In Show went to the US’ number one Herding Dog and number three all breeds, the Puli, Conrad.

CH Genesis Silverado

We reported earlier that Saturday’s Central Florida Kennel Club show was won by the Pug, CH Winsome’s Trouble AT Coral Bay (Yes, we need a photo). Surprisinly, none of Friday’s finalists made it into Helen Lee James’ BIS ring Saturday. Her other finalists were the Labrador Retriever, CH Salty Dog Of Tampa Bay, the Afghan Hound, CH Genesis Silverado, the Potuguese Water Dog, CH Camlin Sea Dancer Makitso Secretariat, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier, CH Prada Classic Aran Isle At Donatellas, the French Bulldog, CH Raidrops Justus Lifes A Game, and the Pembroke Welsh Corgi, CH Riverside In The Dark Zone.

CH Norkus Risky Business

Sunday, it was the Space Coast Kennel Club Of Palm Bay and Victor Clemente’s turn to call BIS. His finalists were the German Wirethaired Pointer, CH Star K‘s Mile Hi Valentine, the Afghan Hound, CH Genesis Silverado, the Boxer, Kim’s Amazing Grace Custom Made, the Wire Fox Terrier, CH Chevoit’s Aston Martin, the Pug, CH Norkus Risky Business, the Standard Poodle, CH Dawn Spitfire, and the Puli, CH Cordmaker Field Of Dreams.

And BIS was the GWP, Tina, her second this year. Some of you may have read our post last night reporting the PBGV, CeeJay, as the BIS winner. That was an erroneous report base on a comment from a reader. We regret the mistake and offer our apologies to all and congratulations to Tina’s breeders/owners Richard & Linda Stark, co-owner Victor Malzoni Jr, and handler Jane Alston-Myers.
