We continue with the weekend mop up. Elsewhere in Region Three, we had the Echo Hills Kennel Club of Ohio two shows in Troy OH. We previously posted Saturday’s results. Now we have Sunday’s winners for you.

Betsy Yates did the BIS honors on Sunday and she selected from the Gordon Setter, CH Firethorn & Sandpiper Easy On The Eyes, the Whippet, CH Sporting Field's Bahama Sands, the Border Terrier, CH Tyrolian Eight Belles At Meadowlake, the Smooth Coat Chihuahua, CH Ayrwen Star Kissed Delight, the Keeshond, CH Sprookje Lunar Appellation, and the Australian Shepherd, Thornapple Dirty Mind.

It was the second BIS in as many weeks for the Whippet. Congratulations to breeder/owner Dionne Butt, co-breeder Jesse Martin, and co-owner, and handler Amanda Giles.

CH Bluebeard’s Suddenly Bridey

There were three shows in Grayslake IL, two all breed shows and an all Terrier show. We have reported on Friday’s all breed show and the Terrier show and we told you that the BIS winner at yesterday’s Chain O’ Lakes Kennel Club show was the Keeshond, CH Daimler’s Caviar Dreams. The remaining six finalists were the Irish Setter, CH Vineyard’s Bad Boy, the American Foxhound, CH Kiarry’s Foolish Pleasure, the Alaskan Malamute, CH Sno Klassics Play The Game, the Kerry Blue Terrier, CH Bluebeard’s Suddenly Bridey, the Papillion, CH Arkeno’s Ears To You, the Polish Lowland Sheepdog, CH Sasquehanna Malinnik Ponadto.

We abhor negative reporting, but we would be remiss if we did not mention that the Kerry Blue had to beat the country’s number one dog, the Scottish Terrier, CH Roundtown Mercedes Of Maryscot, to get to this final. To give you an idea of how rare that is, As of June 1, Sadie had appeared in 60 Groups and won 53 of them, roughly 90 percent.

We’ll be right back.
