Our friends from the Midwest have checked in with the results from this weekend’s Illinois shows.

CH Cornerstone Soliloquy

Saturday the Blackhawk Kennel Club was in Amboy with Kent Delaney in the final ring. His seven were the Irish Setter, CH Vineyard’s Bad Boy, the Basset Hound, CH Topsfield-Sanch American Express, the Doberman Pinscher, CH Francesca’s Bewitched, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier, CH Cornerstone Soliloquy, the Blenheim & Prince Charles English Toy Spaniel, CH Royalist Ready To Reign, the Standard Poodle, CH Dawin Spitfire, and the Polish Lowland Sheepdog, CH Sasquehanna Malinnik Ponadto.

His BIS was the Staffordshire, Piper, the only Staffordshire Bull Terrier to win a BIS this year.

CH Sno Klassic Play The Game

On Sunday, the crown moved to De Kalb for the Greater De Kalb Kennel Club’s two day stand. Piper was back Sunday in Richard Lashbrook’s final as were the Irish Setter and the Standard Poodle. Also asking for consideration were the Irish Wolfhound, CH Highgate’s Andrew Of The Ridge, the Alaskan Malamute, CH Sno Klassic Play The Game, the Yorkshire Terrier, CH Gloveshire’s Allure, and the Cardigan Welsh Corgi, CH Bleazak’s Blue Nude.

BIS went to the Malamute, Player, making him the highest scoring Malamute in AKC conformation.

CH Dawin Spitfire

Yesterday, Jay Richardson closed the weekend with prior finalists, the Basset, the Polish Lowland Sheepdog, and the Standard Poodle. Making their first appearance of the weekend were the Chesapeake Bay Retriever, CH Sandbar’s Stock Exchange, the Newfoundland, CH Paladin’s Thomas Jefferson, the Norfolk Terrier, CH Max-Well’s Viper, and the Smooth Coat Chihuahua, CH Galway’s Dark Eyes.

Taking home the remaining big rosette was the big Poodle, Spitfire, her fifth this year. She is one of the six Standard Poodles to win a BIS this year. We were lucky enough to see Spitfire earlier this year. We highly recommend the experience.
