We had two sites, 1100 miles apart, in Region Five, the South Central Region. The first is Lake Charles LA where the Calcasieu Kennel Club hosted a pair of shows.

CH Cragsmoor Buddy Goodman

Saturday the judge was James Frederickson and his finalists were the Black Cocker Spaniel, CH K-J's Othello, the Afghan Hound, CH Genesis Silverado, the Portuguese Water Dog, CH Camlin Sea Dancer Makitso Secretariat, the Skye Terrier, CH Cragsmoor Buddy Goodman, the Pekingese, CH Franshaw Hear Me Roar, the Chinese Shar-Pei, CH Elite's By Design, and the Rough Collie, CH Sylvan Argent Simply Irresistible.

His BIS was the twice as long as high Terrier, the Skye. Skyes get over looked (and yes, we have tongue firmly planted in cheek) by a lot of Terrier enthusiasts, but one this good will always get noticed. He’s the only Skye to win a BIS this year and now he has two. Congratulations to breeds/owners Eugene Zaphiris & Matthew Stander and handler Lawrence Cornelius.

CH Donnchada Sweet Dreams

Sunday, Buddy was back in the final ring with judge Edd Bivin the Afghan, the Peke, and the Collie. The newcomers were the Pointer, CH Penpoint's In Dress Blues, the Mastiff, CH Lazy D's Southern Gentleman, and the Standard Poodle, CH Donnchada Sweet Dreams.

And it was the big Poodle, Patsy, running away with the BIS. Because we’ve had one spectacularly great Standard on the scene the last couple of years, some have forgotten that we have several great Standards out. This one is, indeed, a dream.

CH Bugaboo’s Georgie Girl

Meanwhile the Colarado Springs (CO) Kennel Club gave as two shows this weekend. We gave you Saturday’s results over the weekend. Sunday, judge C P Heredeen, had mostly familiar names in his final, the Golden Retriever, CH Toasty’s Treasure Island, the Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen, the Portuguese Water Dog, CH Spyglass;s Leend Of Bahia, the Kerry Blue, CH Kallehan’s Hot N Spicy Of Jorkaite, the the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, CH Orchard Hill Shirmont Backtalk, the Lhasa Apso, CH Rushmar’s Charmer, and the Old English Sheepdog, CH Bugaboo’s Georgie Girl.

BIS went to the bobtail, her fourth this year. We are lucky to have two OES winning BIS in two different parts of the country. Hopefully, you will get to see one or the other this year.

We still hve more results coming.
