GCH CH Torquay Midnight Confession

As exciting as the all breed week has been, we would be remiss if we didn’t mention some of the excitement going on at the breed level.  We are aware of at least three National Breed Specialties this week.  First, the National Beagle Club has been out in Vancouver WA all week for their 2010 National.  When it was all over Steve Allmand chose the dazzling couple of the 15” Beagle, GCH CH Torquay Midnight Confession, and breeder/owner/handler Marcelo Chagas as BISS.  In the intervariety competition BOS went to 15” Beagle, CH Jabrowoki's A Canterbury Tail.

Additional winners were BOV, 13” Beagle, GCH CH Del Rey Roosevelt's Rough Rider, 13” BOS CH Skyline's Dream Big, 13” BW/WD  Copper Rose Merf the Smerf, & WB Albedo's Next Supermodel and in the 15” variety, BOS CH Jabrowoki's A Canterbury Tail, BW/WB Tortuga's Irishharpo'celtlan, & WD Ha-Penny's Double Ought Six.

Lola and Marcelo have collected 29 career all breed BIS, four shy of the breed record.  Our congratulations to all the winners and a special Brava! to Marcelo and co-breeders/owners Marco Flavio Botelho & Allesandra Botelho.
