We don’t know why we are just getting the results from the Duluth (MN) Kennel Club’s four day outing last week. After all they could have put the results on an ox cart and got them to AKC before this. Nonetheless, superintendent Jack Onofrio has published these results.

CH Hi-Kel Terrydale Soldier Of Fortune

You may recall that we did tell you that the Lakeland Terrier,CH Hi-Kel Terrydale Soldier Of Fortune, left her native Texas to an invading horde of nationally ranked dogs and sacked the northern regions of Minnesota, seizing all four BIS available. Here are the finalists that watched her pillage their village.

CH Avalor’s INXS

On Thursday, Eugene Blake saw the Golden Retriever, CH Avalor’s INXS, the American Foxhound, CH Devlon’s Fame And Fortune, the Kuvasz, Szumeria’s Wildwood Silver Six Pence, the Yorkshire Terrier, CH Stringer’s Something Got To Give, the Keeshond, CH Daimer’s Caviar Dreams, and the Border Collie, CH Sportingfield’s Reflections O Borderframe.

CH Bellatak My Funny Valentine

Friday, Ranger’s fellow finalists in Jon Cole’s ring were the Golden, the Foxhound, the Kees, the Akita, Buckridge Posative Energy, the Havanese, CH Bellatak My Funny Valentine, and the Bouvier des Flandres, CH Limerick’s Shakespeare. Saturday, Michele Billings runners-up were the Golden, the Foxhound, Thursday’s Border Collie, the Rottweiler, CH Cammcastle’s Friar Tuck, the Smooth Coat Chihuahua, CH Yuum Gomez, and the Miniature Poodle, CH Amity Mystical Horizon’s Heaven Sent.

Closing it out Sunday with judge James Reynold were the German Wirehaired Pointer, Ch Ripsnorter’s Mt View Lookout, the Whippet, CH Sportingfield’s Bahama Sands, and the previously cited Kuvasz, Havanese, Miniature Poodle, & Border Collie.

It may not have matched the heat of San Antonio, but it was still a grand group of AKC champions.
