We had hoped that we would be well enough to make at least one of the Franklin TN shows, but, alas, it was not to be. Our apologies to all those we had planned to meet and our special apologies to the Cairn exhibitors who had been counting on our entry.
Equally, frustrating is the missed opportunity to see some of the nation’s best dogs this weekend. Friday’s Tullahoma Kennel Club of Tennessee show featured Elizabeth Muthard in the final ring with the German Wirehaired Pointer, CH Ripsnorter's Mt View Lookout, the Scottish Deerhound, CH Foxcliffe Hickory Wind, the Siberian Husky, CH Topaz T.R.O.U.B.L E., the Norwich Terrier, CH Skyscot's Poker Chip, the Pekingese, CH PalaceGarden Malachy, the Schipperke, CH Dante Fire When Ready, the German Shepherd Dog, CH Shoal Creek's Sangria V Barick.
BIS went to the Deerhound, Hickory. She has been incredibly dominant in her Group wining three quarters of the Groups she has appeared in for a total of 19 Group wins.
