CH Tolkien Raintree Mister Baggins

We are a bit behind in our show reports so it’s canine catch up time. We will do things geographically. Starting in New England where the Providence County Kennel Club & Rhode Island Kennel Club gave us two shows on Saturday, it was Dr Robert A Indeglia with the Field Spaniel, CH Tamarack's Race You To Calico, the Rhodesian Ridgeback, CH Mzazi's Beau De Soleil, the Giant Schnauzer, CH Skansen's C'Sofia Of Grandeur, the Irish Terrier, CH Fleet St Fenway Fan, the Pomeranian, CH Tabletop's Return To Sender, the Tibetan Terrier, CH Salishan's My Special Angel, and the Bearded Collie, CH Tolkien Raintree Mister Baggins. His BIS was the Beardie, Roy, his seventh this year. Roy is in a neck and neck race for the Number One Herding Dog and is now knocking at the door of a top ten berth all breeds.

CH Salishan's My Special Angel

Sunday, Jon Cole saw the Roy, the same Irish Terrier & Tibetan Terrier, the Weimaraner, CH Camelot's Knockin' On Heaven's Door, the Borzoi, CH Aashtoria's Aucassin Mascha, the Boxer, CH Jacquet's Laredo El Encanto, and the Boxer, CH Jacquet's Laredo El Encanto. It was the Tibetan Terrier, Mika, picking up the Best In Show. We think it might be the first for the two year old ever. We know it’s the first this year. Congratulations to breeders/owners Gary & Susan Carr, owner Robert Hennings, and handler Clifford W Steele.


  1. Thank you Jon Cole for your understanding of the Tibetan Terrier breed standard and for putting up such a truly beautiful TT bitch for BIS. It is refreshing to see a TT shown in natural coat as the standard calls for without any sculpting or scissoring of the dogs coat and without any exaggeration of breed type. Mika represents the breed standard perfectly and is a credit to her breeder owners and testament to their devotion and love of the breed. Congratulations to Gary and Sue Carr, Bob Hennings, and of course Cliff Steele great job.
