The hamlet of Yorktown Heights NY has a median household income exceeding six figures and a decidedly Aryan population, but the dogs at today’s Taconic Hills Kennel Club show were much more diverse.

CH Dun Myrica Speaker Of Eagle

Judge Lena Tamboer met with the Labrador Retriever, CH Casbar’s Hart To Hart, the Irish Wolfhound, CH Dun Myrica Speaker Of Eagle, the Samoyed, CH Pebbles’ Run Hammy Davis Jr, the Wire Fox Terrier, CH Beinnen’s Painted By Santeric, the Havanese, CH Fuzzy Farm Devil Made Me Do It, the Tibetan Terrier, CH Atisha’s VSOP Courvoisier, and the Belgian Tervuren, CH Waldenmarks Heres Lookin’At Ewe HSAS.

The biggest dog in the ring took on the biggest prize. Handler Marie Sommershoe has piloted the Wolfhound to the number two Hound berth and a number 15 all breed spot.
