CH Rokeena Carte Blanche

Finally, from Lake Waccamaw NC, we hear that the Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen, CH Rokeena Carte Blanche, has snagged the BIS at the Myrtle Beach Kennel Club Saturday show. This win will help CeeJay hold onto his top five ranking.


For my late night readers, we have some late results. From the Walla Walla (WA) Kennel Club we have this.

CH Mojo's Rock'N Your World

BIS judge Chuck Murray collected the Welsh Springer Spaniel, CH Royailes Hasta B A Cut Above, the Black & Tan Coonhound, CH Silver Ridge Showtyme At Windbourne, the Akita, CH CH Mojo's Rock'N Your World, the Smooth Fox Terrier, CH Warfox Double Exposure, the Blenheim & Prince Charles English Toy Spaniels, CH Cheri-A Wingo Lord Nelson, the French Bulldog, CH Highwood’s Big Shot, and the Australian Shepherd, CH CH Whidbeys Moonligh Frost RA.

His Best In Show went to Coupe, the Akita. Coupe was bred by Paul & Stacey Borrmann. Stacey co-owns Coupe with Bill Rule. Al Lee Jr has the lead. Congratulations to them all.


From the Seward County (NE) Kennel Club we hear that judge Karen McFarlane had seven outstanding dogs in her final today.

CH Toasty’s Treasure Island

They were the Golden Retriever, CH Toasty’s Treasure Island, the Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen, CH Afterglow Ebeneezer, the Portuguese Water Dog, CH Timbermist's Foot Off The Boat, the Maltese, CH Rhapsody's Too Many Remarks, the Smooth Fox Terrier, to be named later, the American Eskimo Dog, CH Silveroaks First & Foremost, and the Australian Shepherd, CH Windrift’s Latitude.

The country’s number one Sporting Dog, Treasure, had seven BIS last year. With today’s win she has ten already this year. Congratulations to breeders/owners Jerome and Pamela Oxenberg, co-owners Jane Bates & Carolee Douglas, and handler Clint Livingston.


OK, we are Terrier owners, but is not true that we have any cosmic influence on the show circuit. However, we are kind of giddy about the results this weekend. We have just heard that the Smooth Fox Terrier, CH J’Cobe Kemosabe Vigilante Justice, has taken the BIS, courtesy of judge Wendy Willhauck, at the Progressive Dog Club of Wayne County in Birch Run MI.

CH J’Cobe Kemosabe Vigilante Justice

Dodger’s fellow finalists were the Irish Setter, CH Jewelset Second Attraction, the Otterhound, Scentasia’s The Price Is Right, the Bernese Mountain Dog, CH Lovahagen’s Emo, the Smooth Coat Chihuahua, CH Dartan On The Rocks, the Lhasa Apso, CH Northwind Nothing But Trouble, and the Bouvier Des Flandres Quiche’s Demetrius.

While the number one Terrier, the number one dog all breeds, is way ahead of everyone, the number two Terrier spot is shaping up to be a slugfest. Today’s BIS is Dodger’s fifth BIS this year.


CH Hi-Kel Terrydale Soldier Of Fortune

It’s still Beaumont TX and it’s still the Baytown Kennel Club hosting and today the BIS still belongs to the Lakeland Terrier, CH Hi-Kel Terrydale Soldier Of Fortune. Oh, they did have a different judge, Marjorie Underwood.


CH Foxlorr Double Dare

What did we just say about clusters? We have a report that the Smooth Fox Terrier, CH Foxlorr Double Dare, has scrambled home with the top prize on day two of the Wilmington Kennel Club in Bear DE. Giving the two year old some stiff competition were the Doberman Pinscher, CH Allure Blazing Star Alisaton, and the Dalmatian, CH Perdiata Absolute Adorable. Congratulations to breeder/owner Lorraine Gyenge, co-owner Jane Gardner, and handler Michael Scott.


We don’t know if they have happy hours in Lewisburg WV, but we do know that they have some great dogs there this weekend. The Magic Valley Kennel Club brought in Patrica Hess to judge BIS.

CH Stirling Cool Hand Luke

Her finalists today were the Weimaraner, CH Smokycity Nanis Dbl Silhouette, the Whippet, CH Sporting Field’s Bahama Sands, the Boxer, CH Hi-Tech's Southern Belle, the Airedale Terrier, CH Stirling Cool Hand Luke, the Shih Tzu, CH Xerlane’s Face The Music, the Lhasa Apso, CH My Thai Ta Sen Halleluiah Chorus, and the Puli, CH Cordmaker Field Of Dreams.

We have observed that both shows and BIS wins come in clusters. We just reported a BIS by a Lakeland and now we have a BIS by an Airedale. Lucas has been the top Airedale in the US for the last two years and this win puts him in the top twenty dogs all breed.


Why do you think that the Florida shows always have their reports in first? We think it’s because exhibitors all want to get their favorite resort libation at happy hour prices. Whatever the reason we have results from the Treasure Coast Kennel Club show in Vero Beach FL.

CH Shoal Creek’s Sangria V Barick

Sonny Ambrosio had the Best In Show judge’s book and his choice of the Labrador Retriever, CH Robnie’s Chantilly At Lighthouse, the Whippet Karasar’s Par Excellence, the Great Dane, CH Raintree Erinwood Dixie Magic Dragon, the Parson Russell Terrier, CH Laurel Oak Shockwave, the Pug, CH Norkus’ Risky Business, the Chow Chow, CH Liontamer’s Dial 1-800 Hotstuff, and the German Shepherd Dog, CH Shoal Creek’s Sangria V Barick.

Back around Thanksgiving we predicted that the GSD, Rhea, would start winning BISs, but we underestimated this spectacular bitch. Rhea who is not yet three years old, has already collected five top prizes this year and a top twenty all breed berth. Congratulations to breeder/owner Giovanni Middei, co-owners Edward Farrell, Barbara Stamper & Lee Jewel, and handler Scott Yergin.


CH Tupelo ShoBoat Tu China Tu

It's no mistake. The Pug, CH Tupelo ShoBoat Tu China Tu, Pug, CH Tupelo ShoBoat Tu China Tu, aka Boo has been named top dog by BIS judge Denny Mounce at the Champaign Illinois Kennel Club show in Decatur IL . We don’t have all the finalists, but we do know that the Alaskan Malamute, CH Sno Klassic Play The Game, the Tibetan Terrier, CH Cedar C Barnstrom L&D Edition. and the Old EnglishSheepdog, CH Lambluv’s Daydream Believer, were all on hand in the final seven. We expect to have several more shows to report on today. We’ll have more later.

CH Hi-Kel Terrydale Soldier Of Fortune

And for you night owl readers we have this report on the Baytown Kennel Club show in Beaumont TX. The Lakeland Terrier, CH Hi-Kel Terrydale Soldier Of Fortune took home the big rosette today courtesy of judge Janet Allen. That’s number eight for the number two Terrier, Ranger, who is quietly moving her way up the rankings.


CH Allure Blazing Star Alisaton

We just heard that the Doberman Pinscher, CH Allure Blazing Star Alisaton, has picked up another BIS. The latest comes today courtesy of judge Patricia A. Mowbray-Morgan and the Wilmington (DE) Kennel Club.


Good News is always worth waiting for. We just heard that our daughter, Wellesley, will receive a Georgetown Scholars’ at George Washington Hospital Scholarship to attend the university’s nursing school.

Wellesley Windover Wheeler
Our Daughter, Georgetown Bound

We originally had been promised an answer to her application for the scholarship by last Wednesday, but the school at the last moment decided to delay final decisions until today. Then, with less finesse than Ryan Seacrest announcing who got the fewest votes, they waited until the very last moment today to notify applicants less than a hour ago of the committee’s selections. The scholarship provides an 80 percent tuition credit in exchange for a commitment to work at the hospital for three years. That’s a guaranteed job upon graduation AND more than $62,000 tuition assistance. Sounds like a Happy Meal for parents.

Our thanks to all of you that wrote with words of encouragement. We truly appreciate you sharing in our joy.


Bless those I-Reporters, who share results with us. This report comes in from the Decatur IL where the Sandemac Kennel Club had judge James Covey doing BIS.

CH Cerise Jesse James

His finalists were the English Springer Spaniel , CH Cerise Jesse James, the Otterhound, CH Scentasia's Double Trouble, the Alaskan Malamute, CH Sno Klassic Play the Game, the West Highland White Terrier, CH Whitefire's Fancy Dancer, the Pug, CH Tupelo ShoBoat Tu China Tu, the Chinese Shar-Pei, CH Chaoyang Take it To the Limit, and the Old English Sheep Dog, CH Lambluv's Daydream Believer.

Seems the Sporting Group has been having a good run since we observed a lack of BIS by that group. They just love to prove us wrong. Congratulations to the Springer, Jesse, his breeder/owner DorothyCherry and his handler Howard Huber Jr.


It’s just 6:00 PM on the East Cost and we already have show results for you…these from the Magic Valley Kennel Club show in Lewisburg WV.

Thursday, April 23, 2009

Wednesday, April 22, 2009


Wow, didn’t we just finish last weekend’s show reports? And don’t we still have rankings to update? Well, time waits for no blogger and neither does the dog show calendar.

Snoopy Spring Fling

Kicking it off tomorrow is the Super Spring Fling Cluster (sounds more like a sale at the mall than a dog show circuit) in Lewisburg WV with the Beckley West Virginia Kennel Club and Magic Valley (wonder what they grow in the Magic Valley) Kennel Club hosting a four day fun fest. Also opening for business tomorrow is the Progress City Dog Show Cluster. Progress City would be Decatur IL as designated by the Champaign Illinois, the Sandemac, Mattoon Kennel Clubs., who also have four shows planned.

Rite Of Spring

Three cities will host three day events, Friday through Sunday. In Bear DE the Wilmington & Penn Treaty Kennel Clubs host, in Montgomery AL, the Anninston Montgomery, & Cahaba Valley KCs will present, and in Beaumont TX, it’s the Baytown and Beaumont Kennel Clubs entertaining us.

That’s 43 all breed shows in 18 different cities. So are you going to go to an AKC dog show this weekend?

Tuesday, April 21, 2009


One club whose results were overlooked by the AKC Weekly Wins was the Bee-Tex Kennel Club who was busy putting on two shows this past weekend.

CH K-J’s Othello

Saturday, the club had judge Alane Gomez making the BIS call. She had the Black Cocker Spaniel, CH K-J’s Othello, the Harrier, CH Pacific’s Serenading Anthem, the Doberman Pinscher, CH Phillmar Monster Magnificent, the Smooth Fox Terrier, CH Foxxsake American Spirit, the Miniature Pinscher, CH Windwalkers Call In The Clowns, the Bichon Frise, CH Risgae Miabella Sweet Georgia, and the Shetland Sheepdog, CH Weststar Blueprint.

The Cocker with the Shakespearean name posted his first BIS. Congratulations to breeder/owners James & Kay Pruitt, co-breeders Coy & Adrianna Grimes, and handler Joe Payne.

CH Windwalkers Call In The Clowns

Sunday judge Carolyn Herbel saw the same Cocker, Harrier, Doberman, Smooth Fox, & MinPin along with the Miniature Poodle, CH Mipar Revamp, and the Australian Cattle Dog, CH Gravan Silverpark Wethr Patrrns CD. The MinPin, Emmett, pranced to the top spot. Congratulations to breeder/owner Bobbie Mills and co-owner Larry Dewey on Emmett’s first BIS.


We have a couple of corrections to post. However, a word about how we collect our information.

For show results our primary source is the AKC Weekly Wins. Because these results are usually only posted during bankers’ business hours, we also use the superintendents websites for information. INFODOG, MBF’s site, is especially timely often posting results within an hour of BIS, even on weekends. Finally we have a network of I-Reporters that send us in reports.

Now all of these sources make errors. Owners, especially, should check to ensure the AKC is getting it right. The Weekly Wins report is an unofficial report, but if they got it wrong there, they may have the official record wrong as well.

CH Shor’Line Jetoca High Seas Adventure RN JH
and Handler Kate Batzner-Northern

We got a comment this morning on our 19 Jan 09 report on the Central Iowa Kennel Club show in Des Moines IA on 18 Jan 09. The anonymous commenter noted, three months after the fact, that we got the Sporting Group winner wrong. Well, we checked the AKC Weekly Wins, and they still have the reported Golden Retriever, CH Halogolds Take Me On A Journey, listed as the winner. A review of the superintendent’s, Jack Onofrio Dog Shows, site reveals the actual winner was the Golden, CH Shor’Line Jetoca High Seas Adventure RN JH. Since the super posted his results a week after our report, we were unaware of the AKC’s and our errors.

Our apologies to breeder/owner Cynthia Binder, co-breeder Julie Caruthers, and handler Kate Batzner-Northern, our congratulations to them on their Group win, and our admonishment, check those AKC reports, they may have the official record wrong. Finally, thank you for providing us the correction. We do try to get you results timely and accurately.

CH Aurora’s Walk This Way

We also received this more timely correction from Julie Mueller of Aurora Kennels. Julie was one of those brave exhibitors that fought the bad weather to show at the Claremore Kennel Club of Oklahoma. She was rewarded with a Hound Group One win for her striking Saluki, CH Aurora’s Walk This Way, only for us to get it wrong.

Tyler-Joe, was the sole puppy in a litter produced by artifical insemination from 22 year old sperm. This very special three year old was bred Nancy Bodine, is owned by Julie & AKC judge Eugene Blake. Gene Blake was a professional handler for over three decades before becoming a judge and piloted Tyler-Joe to this win. Bravo on the win and thanks for the great photo and the opportunity to correct our error.


This week our weekend extended into Monday with four locations holding shows. We gave you the Idaho results last night. Here are the others.

This was a big weekend in Timonium Md with large entries. Yesterday it was the Catoctin Kennel Club hosting and Kenneth McDermott doing the BIS call. His finalists were

CH Lambluv's Daydream Believer

We all love a shaggy dog story, especially when it ends in a BIS for the country’s number one OES. That’s number five for Jere Marder and her bobtail.

Sunday, the judge was Dr John Reeve Newson and the finalists were the same Saluki, Siberian, Keeshond, OES, and the Curly-Coated Retriever, Clarions Blackberry Bramble, the Smooth Fox Terrier, Osages Ur Gonna C More Of Me, and the Papillion, CH Starsigns Trickin St Nick.

Back to back wins are not unheard of, but they are an amazing accomplishment. Bravo to the OES, Winston.

Did we just say that BIS wins by the gun dogs had become rare. Well for the second time this weekend, the Sporting Group representative collected the top prize. The Black Cocker has led her breed for the last two years and this BIS should help her hold onto that spot this year.

CH Jenda’s Hail The Queen

There were a lot of dogs in Timonium MD this weekend, so we forgive them for being a little slow to get their results in. There were specialties and limited breed shows galore on Friday, but we are here to focus on the all breed shows.

CH Dun Myrica Speaker Of Eagle

On Saturday one of the older clubs in the country, Old Dominion Kennel Club, hosted and the judge was Dawn Hausen.

A big show needs a big finish and they don’t get any bigger than the Wolfhound, who picked up his fourth all breed BIS this year and a top twenty berth. We don’t remember ever telling you that the big guy’s breeders are Samuel Evans Ewing III & Sam Houston McDonald. McDonald & Joe Roland are the lucky owners and Marie Sommershoe is his very accomplished handler. Congratulations to them all.

CH Palisades Silhouette

Today it was the Baltimore County Kennel Club’s turn and Howard Falberg judging the final seven. Competition was so fierce that the Wolfhound was the lone holdover from Saturday. The other finalists were the English Setter, CH Palisades Silhouette, the Boxer, CH Tamaron's Leonidas , the Skye Terrier, CH Cragsmoor Buddy Goodman, the Pug, CH Nonesuch Aniie’s Mainsail, the Lhasa Apso, CH My Thai Ta Sen Halleuiah Chorus, and the Border Collie, Borderframe Signature.

We don’t usually start our weekends on Sunday, but that’s what they are doing in Columbus OH where Saturday was filled with a group of specialty shows and today the Central Ohio Kennel Club held the all breed show with Dr Eric Liebes doing the Best In Show duties.

The five year old bitch was bred by Sandra D'Andrea & Perry Hazelwood, and is owned by Sandra D'Andrea, Dr Stephen & Susan Rich, & Grant George. Congratulations to them all.

From West Springfield MA and the South Windsor Kennel Club, we have this report.

CH Kalil Cool Casey From Bull Run

Judge Louis Bond assembled the Brittany, CH Tonan-Hope's R U Kiddin' Me, the Irish Wolfhound, Shanachies Tulamor Of Sherwood, the Doberman Pinscher, CH Allure Blazing Star Of Alisaton, the Cairn Terrier, CH Kalil Cool Casey From Bull Run, the Pekingese, CH Lin-Lee’s For The Good Times, the Keeshond, CH Quest Stand By Me, and the Bearded Collie, CH Tolkien Raintree Mister Baggins.

The Dobie, CJ, won’t take over the title of number one Working Dog…yet. Today’s BIS, puts her within a couple of big wins to overtake the Giant Schnauzer, CH Galilee's Pure Of Spirit, who is resting up after hitting the 100 BIS milestone. We think it’s time someone send us a new photo for CJ. Looks like we are going to need it.


Our first report of the day comes in from Zolfo Springs FL where the Heartland Dog Club Of Florida had judge Beverly Vic calling Best In Show.
