GCH CH Fireside’s Spontaneous Combustion

Our Monday morning mop up feels like the morning after the end of the play offs.  This past four days have seen some of the most anticipated match ups all year.  While we have focused much of our attention on Cleveland and it’s four shows there were lots of drama elsewhere.

In Allentown PA the Lehigh Valley Kennel Club and the Delaware Water Gap Kennel Club gathered over 3000 dogs for two days of fierce competition.  On Saturday the LVKC asked Dr Michael Manning to choose a BIS from the Wirehaired Pointing Griffon, GCH CH Fireside’s Spontaneous Combustion, the Scottish Deerhound, GCH cH Foxcliffe Hickory Wind, the Bernese Mountain Dog, GCH CH Adesa The Heat Is On, the Cairn Terrier, GCH CH Maverston Double Dutch, the Maltese, GCH CH Ta-Jon’s  Just Bee-ing Silly, the Schipperke, CH DeLamer Point Break, and the Rough Collie, CH Milas Latin Lover.

He chose the WPG, Buster.  Buster and handler Michelle Scott have been  working their way up the rankings lately and are now the Number 14 Dog All Breeds with eleven BIS.

GCH CH PalaceGarden Malchy

As we reported here yesterday, the Pekingese, GCH CH PalaceGarden Malchy, spent Sunday in Allentown picking up the Best In Show at the DWGKC’s event.  Challenging Malachy in Jacqueline Stacy’s final were the Weimaraner, CH Northwoods Send Money Honey, the above named Deerhound, the Bernese Mountain Dog, CH Liebenhund’s Who’s Your Daddy, the American Staffordshire Terrier, CH Castle Rock’s Sbigstaff Mad About You, the Standard Poodle, Apacchi Jungle Fever, and the aforementioned Collie.  While we can’t be sure of the exact number of points that Malchy now trails the Number One Dog, we calculate that he will need to pickup around 1400 points to catch the leader.  We suspect there is a plane ticket to San Francisco in Malachy’s Christmas Stocking.


  1. Florida in Saturday, Pennsylvania on Sunday? Man this little dog is on the road! Good luck to both of the leaders. Two fine dogs shown by wonderful handlers!
