GCH CH PalaceGarden Malachy
The Tennessee Valley Kennel Club opened the four day set in Knoxville TN today with David Kirkland calling the final. He had his choice of some of the best AKC has to offer including the Black Cocker Spaniel, GCH CH Casablanca’s Thrilling Seduction, the Bloodhound, CH Heather Father And Son, the Giant Schnauzer, GCH CH Skansen's Sir August Brigs, the Border Terrier, GCH CH Devon Lady Simper Fi, the Pekingese, GCH CH PalaceGarden Malachy, the Schipperke, GCH CH Dante Fire When Ready, and the Old English Sheepdog, GCH CH Lambluv Gambolon Blue Thunder.
His BIS was the US’ Number Two Dog All Breeds, the Peke, Malachy. Malachy and owner/handler David Fitzpatrick’s 48th BIS should have put them within one BIS of the Number One Dog. However, we hear that the Smooth Fox Terrier, GCH CH J’Cobe Kemosabe Vigilante Justice, also picked up another BIS at today’s La Porte County Kennel Club in Fort Wayne IN. We expect we will still be seeing a very close race between Numbers One & Two come Monday morning.
