We have another hat trick to report. The Bearded Collie, CH Tolkien Raintree Mister Baggins, has picked up his third BIS of the weekend in Essex Junction VT.

CH Tolkien Raintree Mister Baggins

Today’s win came under judge Patricia Laurans at the Green Mountain Dog Club. The Beardie, Roy, was joined in the big ring by the Irish Setter, CH Shadagee Caught Red Handed, the Basset Hound, CH Topsfield-Sanchu Pop Art O’Bridi, the Bernese Mountain Dog, CH Alpenspirit‘s Lion King, the Airedale Terrier, CH Stirling Cool Hand Luke, the Pomeranian, CH Jan-Shar’s Elementary My Dear Watson, and the Tibetan Spaniel, CH Wassong’s Djebel of Lollipop.

We don’t know how long Roy and handler Clifford Steele can keep up this pace, but we know we are enjoying watching.


  1. CJ went BIS for three in a row in OH. #25 BIS this year for CJ and Carissa
