From Des Moines IA we hear that Nancy Smith Hafner has tapped the Saluki, CH Aurora's Walk This Way as her Best In Show at today’s Cyclone Country Kennel Club Of Ames.
Tyler Joe’s fellow finalists were the Brittany, CH Melridge Stir N It Up, the Rottweiler, CH Cammcastles Friar Tuck, the Parson Russell Terrier, Posey Canyon No Brainer!, the Shih Tzu, CH Olive's Grove Odd Thomas, the Dalmatian, CH Daldorado Dotzinks Bond, and the Old English Sheepdog, CH Lambluv Gambolon Blue Thunder.
Tyler Joe is the product of an artificial insemination breeding using 22 year old frozen semen from the breed‘s all time top winning male, CH Karim Zahab Al Bokay. Tyler Joe has had multiple group placements, including four Hound Group Firsts in 2009, although the four year old has only been shown on a limited basis. We do believe this to be his first all breed BIS Congratulations to breeder Nancy Bodine and owners Julie Mueller & Eugene Blake.
