It’s the nature of Terriers to defy the odds. So we are not surprised that the Scottish Terrier, CH Mercedes Of Maryscot chose a Friday the 13th to collect her 100th career Best In Show. The rarely attained milestone came today at the Greater Philadelphia Dog Fanciers Association’s show under the appreciative eye of Lee Canalizo.

Sadie and handler Gabriel Rangel have dominated the season like few dogs previously. They currently lead the field by an astonishing 55,000 points. If you have not seen this dog in person, get in your car and find her. We promise you it will be worth the trip. A Big Bravo goes out to Gabriel, breeders Mary O'Neal & Anstamm Kennel, and owner Amelia Musser.

On hand in Mrs. Canalizo’s final to see the historic win were the English Cocker Spaniel, CH Brasswinds Remember When, the Wirehaired Dachshund, CH Gleaneagle's Who’s Famous Now, the Samoyed, CH Selene Of Inn Wang San KR, the Toy Poodle, CH Smash Jp Moon Walk, the French Bulldog, CH Petite Cherie Femme De Puissance, and the Bearded Collie, CH Tolkien Raintree Mister Baggins.

This four day long celebration of dogdom continues tomorrow with the Kennel Club of Philadelphia’s annual National Dog Sow Presented by Purina which will be telecast on Thanksgiving Day.
