CH Cliffrose Call Of The Dove

New Mexico is one of those states that few Americans visit and it is their loss.  Dog fanciers were able to combine a visit to the Land of Enchantment with a four day dog show stay in Alamogordo.  It kicked off on Friday with the Mesilla Valley Kennel Club’s day one show which had Cecilia Ringstrom choosing the first BIS winner.  Her options were the CH Autumn’s Stardust And Roses, the Bloodhound, CH Quiet Creek’s Kiss And Tell, the Neapolitan Mastiff, CH Bruno Della Vecchia Roma, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier, CH Angranian Derry Mucker, the Pomeranian, CH Cliffrose Call Of The Dove, the Chinese Shar-Pei, GCH CH Vaje’s Miss Jane Hathaway, and the German Shepherd Dog, GCH CH Enchanted’s American Thunder.   It was the Pom, Woody.  It was the first BIS for the 18 month old.  Congratulations to breeders Krystal Morris & Lana Price, owners Krystal Morris, Ron and Merilyn Smith, and handler Curtiss Smith.
