Yesterday was a national holiday and dog fanciers took advantage of it extending their weekend into Monday.
In Augusta NJ the Ramapo Kennel Club held their second show of the weekend with Lena Tamboer in the final ring. Her seven were the Irish Setter, CH Cumara's Heart Of Oak, the 15” Beagle, CH Torquay Midnight Confession, the Bernese Mountain Dog, CH Trevi's Lonestar, the Border Terrier, CH Meadowlake Overnight Celebrity, the Shih Tzu, CH Krissy's Dream Lover, the Standard Poodle, CH Hillwood Dassin De-Lovely, and the Bearded Collie, CH Tolkien Raintree Mister Baggins.
It was the big Poodle taking home her second BIS of the cluster. Sissy is currently behind the Bulldog, CH Kepley’s Showbiz Razzle Dazzle, on all breed points, but ahead on number of No-Sporting Groups won. We don’t know which one you consider the country’s top Non-Sporting Dog, but we consider both the tops.
Down in West Friendship MD, there is no dispute over who is the US’ number one dog all breeds, number one Terrier, and number one Scottish Terrier. It is CH Roundtown Mercedes Of Maryscot. Sadie finished out a perfect weekend, going three for three BIS, finishing yesterday with the top prize at the Maryland Kennel Club.
The remaining six in Peter Green’s final were the German Shorthaired Pointer, CH Shomberg’s One Hot Ticket Deppe-Haus, the Basenji, CH Reveille Push Button, Great Pyrenees, CH Rivergrove’s Trump This, the Pekingese, CH Linn-Lee’s For The Good Times, the Bichon Frise, CH Bodacious In Enemy Territory, and the Belgian Sheepdog, CH LaNeige’s A Kodak Moment.
For you number geeks (and we are chief among you), Sadie is closing in on the revered 100 Career All Breed Best In Show milestone, Sunday being her 89th. Less apparent is she is also nearing 100,000 dogs defeated, with over 96,000 to date. That’s with eleven weeks to go this year.
