As prevalent as the Standard Poodles are in the Non-Sporting Group, they can only have one placement in the Group. Here’s Whom else we will Watch at Westminster (WWW).

CH Kepley’s Showbiz Razzle Dazzle

The number one Non-Sporting Dog in the country last year was/is a New Yorker, the Bulldog, CH Kepley’s Showbiz Razzle Dazzle. Uli’s combination of balance and showmanship charmed judges and galleries everywhere and garnered her 20 BIS & 77 Non-Sporting Groups. Uli was bred by Marjorie D Kepley & Jack Kepley, is owned by Joan L Fisher, Robert D Speiser & Barbara Wolfe, and handled by Phoebe Jordan Booth.

CH Rushmar’s Charmer

The 2009 number four Non-Sporting Dog was the Lhasa Apso, CH Rushmar’s Charmer, who battled a herd of big Poodles to collect four all breed BIS and 34 Non-Sporting Groups. Buzz was bred and is owned by Linda McCutcheon and handled by Lois DeMers.

CH PaRay’s Rime Time

Bichon Frise are another breed where we could go four deep, but we won’t. We will bite the bullet and go with 2009’s number one Bichon, CH PaRay’s Rime Time. Sloan took home 32 Non-Sporting Group top awards last year as well as two all breed Bests. He was bred by Deb Wentz, is owned by Laura Rosio & Martin Winston, and handled by Tray Pittman.

CH Liontamer’s Dial 1-800-Hotstuff

Last year’s number one Chow Chow was CH Liontamer’s Dial 1-800-Hotstuff with three all breed BIS & 19 Non-Sporting Groups. We think this young dog will stand out anywhere. He was bred by Jaquelin Greene & Karen Tracy, is owned by Karen Tracy & Gerry Roberts & Richard Roberts, and handled by Jan Kolnik.

We still have the Herding dogs for you.
