There can be no dispute that many of our top dogs evoke images of elegance and refined tastes. So what could be more fitting that a Chanel and a Gucci show up at two of our most stylish venues?

Meanwhile, in Boca Raton, the Florida town that is the sportier sister of Palm Beach, we had some sibling rivalry emerging. The Rough Collie, CH Sylvan Argent It’s All About Me, aka Gucci, younger sister to 2009 number one Rough Collie, CH Sylvan Argent Simply Irresistible, aka Sax, picked up her first BIS at yesterday’s Boca Raton Kennel Club show under Jeffrey Pepper. Gucci was bred by Dr Cindi Bossart, Connie Dubois & James Efron, is owned by Cindi, Connie, Jennifer Mosing, & Gail Currie, and handled by Brian Livingston. Congratulations to them all. Shouldn't they have spelled it Saks?
