Our four day stint closed with Douglas Johnson doing Best In Show for the Chenango Valley Kennel Club . The final ring consisted of the Irish Setter, CH Shadagee Caught Red-Handed (more about this dog below), the Rhodesian Ridgeback, CH Of Afrikka Spring Valley Dorian Gray, JC, the Siberian Husky, CH Noatack's Party Of One, the Border Terrier, CH Meadowlake Overnight Success, the Havanese, CH Harbor's It Had To Be Me, the Bulldog, CH Kepley's Showbiz Razzle Dazzle, and the Puli, CH Moremi Mind Your Manners.
His Best was the Bulldog, her second of the weekend. Now back to that Irish. Emily, as she is known, just won the Irish Setter Club of America Nationality Specialty last weekend in Lancaster PA over an entry of nearly 500. Imagine that, 500 all red, all Irish, all Setters. Pretty Amazing. Then she follows that impressive win with three Group Ones this weekend. We think a special congratulations is due breeders Ellen Bieler, Debra & Tim Burke, owners Debbie Burke & Nancy Lee Conner, and handler Adam Bernardin.
