Well, one dog that decided staying in Pennsylvania was a doggy version of Thermopylae (OK, that was a stretch, but if you saw Gerard Butler in “300”, you know the reference) was the Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen, CH Rokeena Carte Blanche. CeeJay and handler Jane Myers hopped a flight to Lincoln NE and collected a BIS at today’s Cornhusker Kennel Club Of Lincoln Nebraska show.

CH Rokeena Carte Blanche

Also showing up for judge Judy Goodin were the Clumber Spaniel, CH Moonrysn's Moon Dawg, the Doberman Pinscher, CH Phillmar Sisterella, the West Highland White Terrier, CH Plum Creek Di's Amazing Grace, the Havanese CH Harbor's It Had To Be Me, the Bichon Frise, CH Paray's Rime Time, and the Shetland Sheepdog CH Rosmoor Rapture.

CeeJay is the US’ number one Hound and number five dog all breeds.


Well, ladies & gents, it was a long and arduous journey, but we are here in suburban Philadelphia waiting on a real east coast pizza and tomorrow’s Montgomery County Kennel Club show. We won’t bore you with our experience with airport security. Just suffice it to say they have more places to look on a fat guy.

CH Somerset’’s Sweet Talking Girl

We are a bit behind on our reports, so let’s get to them. First, from today’s Devon Dog Show Association event, we have the continuing dominance of the Terriers as the Scottish Terrier, CH Roundtown Mercedes Of Maryscot, took home another BIS. As it has been at this weeks previous shows, Virginia Lyne’s final was chock-a-block with talent, the ASCOB Cocker Spaniel, CH Somerset’’s Sweet Talking Girl, the Irish Wolfhound, CH Dun Myrica Speake Of Eagle, the Doberman Pinscher, CH Allure Blazing Star Alisaton, the Toy Poodle, CH Smash Jp Moon Walk, the Schipperke, CH Dante’s Fire When Ready, and the Bearded Collie, CH Tolkien Raintree Mister Baggins.

CH Echo of Aran Cross the Rubicon

We know you Terrier fans will hound us until we give you John Sim’s Terrier Group placements. They were Sadie in First, the Airedale, CH Stirling Cool Hand Luke in Second, the Kerry Blue, CH Echo of Aran Cross the Rubicon (Don’t you love how we are getting all these new faces in the Kerry Blues?) and the Sealyham Terrier, CH Efbe’s Merci Pour Le Poivre.

Will be right back with more.

CH Fleet St Fenway Fan

OK, OK, for our fellow Terrier noodges, Michelle Billings' Terrier final on day two were 1, 2, 3, & 4, the Airedale, CH Stirling Cool Hand Luke, a Bristish born, Canadian owned, Kerry Blue Terrier from the classes, Cranmoss Finbar of Colinca, the Irish Terrier, CH Fleet St Fenway Fan, and the Norwich Terrier, CH Skyscots Poker Chip. Our thanks to the readers that helped us get the details on the Terriers.


On a day when Rio De Janeiro was named the host city of the 2016 Summer Olympics it seems fitting that the day two show of the Hatboro Dog Club would have a Brazilian BIS judge.

CH Stirling Cool Hand Luke

Mario Renato Leme Duarte was in the final ring with the Golden Retriever, CH Tempo's U'Ve Got What Gets Me, the Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen, CH Rokeena Carte Blanche, the Doberman Pinscher, CH Allure Blazing Star Alisaton, the Airedale Terrier, CH Stirling Cool Hand Luke, the Toy Poodle, CH Smash Jp Moon Walk, the Schipperke, CH Dante's Fire When Ready, and the Puli, CH Cordmaker Field Of Dreams

His BIS was the Airedale, Lucas, the nation's number four Terrier and 23rd dog all breeds. That's number six for Lucas this year. Congratualtions to breeders Shirley R Good & Susan S Rodgers, owners Torie Steele & Frank Pulice, and handler Ernesto Lara.

Thursday, October 1, 2009


OK, before I’m charged with a bias in favor of Terriers (of which I am truly guilty), a reader did ask me to post the Terrier Group placements from Thursday’s Hatboro Dog Club show.

CH Stirling Cool Hand Luke

They were the Scottish Terrier, obviously, CH Roundtown Mercedes Of Maryscot, the Airedale, CH Stirling Cool Hand Luke, the Smooth Fox Terrier, CH Slyfox Sneaks A Peek, and the Irish Terrier, CH Fleet St Fenway Fan, in that order.

We expect more surprises before the week is out.


CH Grand Cru Clos Erasmus

Among the many National Breed Clubs holding specialties this week in Pennsylvania is the Greyhound Club of America who had Michelle Billings judging the regular classes yesterday in Wrightstown PA. BISS was the 21 month old CH Grand Cru Clos Erasmus. “Era” completed her championship from the Bred By Exhibitor class with four Group Ones! To date she has racked up seven Group ones. Era was bred by Melanie Steele, Rindi Gaudet-Krickeberg & Clint Livingston, is owned by Melanie & Rindi, and handled by Rindi. Congratulations to them all.


Our only all breed dog show today is the Hatboro Dog Club’s opening show in Wrightstown PA. BIS judge at the Terrier heavy show was the veteran Michele Billings.

CH Roundtown Mercedes Of Maryscot

Her final consisted of the English Springer Spaniel, CH Wil-Orion's Twenty Twenty, the Afghan Hound, CH Genesis Silverado, the Alaskan Malamute, CH Sno Klassic Play The Game, the Scottish Terrier, CH Roundtown Mercedes Of Maryscot, the Toy Poodle, CH Smash Jp Moon Walk, the Bulldog, CH, Showbiz Razzle Dazzle and the German Shepherd Dog, CH Shoal Creek‘s Sangria V Barick.

Her Best In Show was the nation’s number one dog all breeds, the Scottie, Sadie. Sadie came out of a Terirer Group that was the largest seen so far this year with over 800 Terriers entered. It was such a stellar group that top twenty dogs were defeated in the breeds or failed to make the cut in the group judging. This will be a week to watch.

Wednesday, September 30, 2009


We’re embarrassed to admit that the last show results to come in from this past weekend are from our own state, Tennessee, where the Greater Murfreesboro Kennel Club Kennel Club held two shows in the Nashville suburbs.

We hope you get to see one or both of these dogs this year.


Now for the rest of this week’s shows, the Chaparral & Mesilla Valley Kennel Clubs will team up to bring you four shows in Alamogordo NM. The only other cluster we have this week is in Hilo HI where the Kona Coast Kennel Club & the Orchid Island Dog Fancier Club will give three shows. Both sites will start the weekend on Friday.

Our remaining shows are in Humble TX near Houston where the Greater Humble Area Kennel Club iwill set up Saturday & Sunday and in the Northern California town of Roseville with the Donner Trail Kennel Club (don’t eat the beef stew) also offering two shows.

After weeks of blazing heat and torrential rains, we expect beautiful weather is most locations. What better way to spend the weekend than at an AKC dog show?


This week’s shows are dominated by the Philadelphia area lead up to Sunday’s all Terrier party, the Montgomery County Kennel Club show. The Hatboro Kennel Club will stage two shows Thursday & Friday in Wrightstown PA, followed by over 2500 dogs at Saturday’s Devon Dog Show Association’s even in Ludwig Corners PA. Sunday’s Montgomery County KC show will be in Blue Bell PA.

CH Efbe's Hidalgo At Goodspice
2008 Montgomery County Kennel Club BIS Winner

While entries are down by a third from two years ago (and shame on you clubs that are not supporting this show), the show is still, with over 1800 dogs entered, the granddaddy of limited breed shows. Not only is it the largest, it is eclipsed in prestige only by the Westminster Kennel Club show. While the total entry is down, there are still some impressive entries within certain breeds. There are 162 American Staffordshire Terriers, 146 Soft Coated Wheaten Terriers, 138 Border Terriers, 138 Scottish Terriers, and 126 Norwich Terriers. You can visit the INFODOG site to get details on the other Terrier Breeds.

CH Roundgtown Mercedes Of Maryscot

CH J'Cobe Kemosabe Vigilante Justice

CH Hi-Kel Terrydale Soldier Of Fortune

CH Stirling Cool Hand Luke

CH Fleet St Fenway Fan

CH Troika Serendipity

Here’s the promised update on Sunday’s Elmira Kennel Club show in Romulus NY. We did tell you that the Smooth Fox Terrier, CH Slyfox Sneaks A Peek, was Dr Alvin Krause’s BIS. The remaining six were the Labrador Retriever, CH Casbars Hart To Hart, Saturday’s Best In Show winner, the Scottish Deerhound, CH Foxcliffe Hickory Wind, the Doberman Pinscher, CH Allure Blazing Star Alisation, the Pekingese, CH Linn-Lee`s For The Good Times, the Dalmatian, CH Troika Serendipity, and the Bouvier des Flandres, Quiche`s Demetrius.

These four shows had the largest concentration of points in the US this past weekend with over 8,000 entries total. However, it made no difference in the tradition top ten standings (See the left side bar ofr the latest standings) What isn’t apparent is how tight the race is in the top ten. While our top three dogs are likely to stay in their respective positions, we expect a lot of jockeying for position for the rest of the year in spots four through ten.

Monday, September 28, 2009
