FINAL SHOW OF THE YEAR

GCH CH Avalon Frontier Sleepnlady Webber

The 2010 race to Number One Dog All Breeds came down to the wire at the San Mateo Kennel Club Show.  Rick Gschwender gathered the final final seven  in San Mateo CA.   They included the Norwegian Elkhound, GCH CH Vin-Melca’s Voyager, the Smooth Fox Terrier, GCH CH Slyfox Sneaks A Peek, the Pekingese, GCH CH PalaceGarden Malachy, and the Bouvier des Flandres, GCH CH Avalon Frontier Sleepnlady Webber.  We will bring you the full lineup shortly.

Best went to the Bouvier, Webber, one of our original DOGS2WATCH.  Webber and handler Larry Fenner have collected eight BIS this year.    We have heard that Larry  Fenner will be leaving the professional handling ranks to take another job.  It's a big loss to the show ring.  Hopefully we will still see Larry frequently.  We find it fitting that he should cap his handling career with a BIS over the toughest competition AKC has to offer.

The win decides the National Title of Number One Dog All Breeds of 2010.  Congratulations to the little engine who could, the winningest Smooth Fox Terrier in history, GCH CH J’Cobe Kemosabe Vigilante Justice!
