It was a great show and it will be a dramatic Thanksgiving Day event. The US’ number one dog attains a major AKC distinction, 100 all breed BIS, in a venue that will be seen by 20 million television viewers. What? You thought the Scottish Terrier, CH Roundtown Mercedes Of Maryscot, hit that mark yesterday? Here’s the background story.

CH Roundtown Mercedes Of Maryscot

Yesterday’s total included the 2009 Montgomery County Kennel Club BIS title. Well, although MCKC is an all breed club and awards an all breed rosette at it’s show, we all know it is a limited breed (all Terrier) show. So look for the announcers on Thanksgiving Day to tell you that it was Sadie’s 100th all breed BIS. Anyway you look at it, she has 100 all breed Best In Show awards and that puts her in the most exclusive company in AKC.

And is always the case in this show, everyone of the finalists was an outstanding, crowd pleasing representative of his/her breed. Also visiting Mrs Robet D (Polly) Smith’s BIS ring were the Labrador Retriever, CH Casbar’s Harrt To Hart, the Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen, CH Celestial CJ’s Hearts On Fire, the Doberman Pinscher, CH Allure Blazing Star Alisaton, the Miniature Pinscher, CH Kimro’s Soldier Boy, the Bulldog, CH Kepley’s Showbiz Razzle Dazzle, and the Bearded Collie, CH Tolkien Raintree Mister Baggins.

So on Thanksgiving Day, between the Macy’s Parade and your Aunt Tilly’s pumpkin pie, do participate in a bit of dog show tradition and history. Watch the National Dog Show, brought to you by the Kennel Club of Philadelphia and Purina.
