GCH CH Tolkien Raintree Mister Baggins
Our dog show week begins as it ended, with records falling. The Bearded Collie, GCH CH Tolkien Raintree Mister Baggins, has set a new record for the most all breed BIS won by his breed. He picked up his 36th career best today at the Saratoga New York Kennel Club show in Ballston Spa NY. On hand to witness the event were judge Eugene Blake, the Irish Setter, GCH CH Shadagee Caught Red Handed, the Afghan Hound, GCH CH Genesis Silverado, the Doberman Pinscher, CH Jaroe Legend of Irish Spirit, the Smooth Fox Terrier, GCH CH J’Cobe Kemosabe Vigilante Justice, the Toy Poodle, GCH CH Smash Jp Moon Walk, and the French Bulldog, GCH CH A Vigdors Caudataire Du Roi Tuunrat's El C. The win puts Roy one show shy of tying the Beardie record for most BIS in a year with 21 in 2010. Congratulations to breeders/owners Larry & Angela Stein, Lesley Woodcock, & Robert Lamm, owners Ellen Charles & Susan Ross, and handler Clifford Steele.
