 2009 AKC/Eukanunba National Champion
CH Roundtown Mercedes Of Maryscot 

We promised to give you some expanded coverage of this weekend’s AKC/Eukanuba National Championship.  We apologize in advance if we don’t mention your favorite breed or dog, but we will try to cover as much as we can.  Be sure to visit the AKC’s terrific on line coverage of the event to find out all the details. 

First let us tell you this.  The two day format has four Groups competing on Saturday, Sporting, Hounds Non-Sporting & Toys, with the Working, Terriers, Herding, & Best In Show reserved for Sunday.  With so many competing events around the US, there has been much speculation about which of our top ranked dogs would appear at AKC’s premier event.  We do know that 28 of the top fifty dogs in the country are entered.  However, several dogs are double, and even tripled entered. 

We can tell you that two of our Top Ten are not entered, Number Four, the Boxer, GCH CH Winfall Brookwood, Styled Dream, and Number Five, the Black Cocker Spaniel, GCH CH Casablanca’s Thrilling Seduction, both of who were in the final of yesterday’s Beaufort Kennel Club show in Savannah GA.  Also in Savannah yesterday, but entered in Long Beach, are Number Two, the Smooth Fox Terrier, GCH CH J’Cobe Kemosabe Vigilante Justice, and Number Eight, last year’s Non-Sporting Group Winner, the Standard Poodle, GCH CH Dawin Spitfire.

Four who have already been competing in Long Beach are Number One, the Pekingese, GCH CH PalaceGarden Malachy, Number Three, defending Sporting Group winner, the Irish Setter, GCH CH Shadagee Caught Red Handed, Number Seven, the Whippet, GCH CH Starline’s Chanel, and Number Nine, the Bearded Collie, GCH CH Tolkien Raintree Mister Baggins.  Our remaining two, Number Six, the German Wirehaired Pointer, GCH CH Ripsnorter’s Mt View Lookout, and Number Ten, the Smooth Fox Terrier, GCH CH Slyfox Sneaks A Peek, are entered, but we have been unable to verify that they are in Long Beach yet.

We will be posting tidbits all day, so check back with us frequently.
