We have a late report from Chambersburg PA where the Nita Nee Kennel Club has put their show to bed.  James Reynolds made it two in a row for the Boxer, GCH CH Winfall Brookwood Styled Dream.  Scarlet was accompanied in the final by the English Setter, GCH CH Hemlock Lane Flying Colours , the Whippet, GCH CH Sporting Field’s Bahama Sands, the Standard Manchester Terrier, CH Saint Lazar's Ring Of Fire, the Affenpinscher, CH Banana Joe V Tani Kazari, the Schipperke, CH Sandevel’s Light My Fire, and the German Shepherd Dog, CH Kridler’s Nutmeg V Signature.  Scarlett and handler Diego Fernando Garcia started the week as the Number Four Dog All Breeds.  Will she move into the Number Three spot?  Check with us on Monday.

MORE BIG BIS

GCH CH Ripsnorter’s Mt View Lookout

We  have two more big BIS to tell you about.  The first is today’s 2600 dog Beaumont Kennel Club show in Houston TX where Houston Clark (just a coincidence, we think) chose the Black Cocker Spaniel, GCH CH Casablanca‘s Thrilling Seduction as his BIS.  Beckham, the nation’s Number Seven Dog All Breeds (expect that to change), and handler Linda Pitts now have 14 BIS this year.

In Philpot KY the entry was smaller, but still a noteworthy 1200 dogs.  However, the big story was that the German Wirehaired Pointer, GCH CH Ripsnorter’s Mt View Lookout, picked up his 30th career all breed Best, a new record for the breed.  Congratulations to breeders Helen Witt, Claire Wisch & Kelly Wisch, owners Kiki Courtelis, & Joyce Wilkinson, James Witt & Helen Witt and handler Frank Murphy.

BAD NEWS, GOOD NEWS

Houston’s Astrodome

The bad news is there are just seven places where you can see an AKC dog show this weekend.   The good news is if you live near one of these sites, your chances of seeing the best of the best are the best.    Expect the biggest entries in the big state of Texas where the Houston Kennel Club, the Beaumont Kennel Club, & the Galveston County Kennel Club will kick off a three day weekend on Friday.  Terrier folks should get there early for Wednesday’s and Thursday’s Houston All Terrier Club shows.  There is also a Working Dogs only event on  Wednesday sponsored by the Texas Working Dog Association Of Greater Houston.  All events are indoors in the Reliant Center next to the legendary Astrodome.

New Yorkers will motor on up to the Hudson River Valley to Stormville NY for the Putnam Kennel Club’s two shows Friday & Saturday.  Hound fanciers will then adjourn to Chatham NY for the Hudson River Valley Hound Association limited breed event.  You can also get three all breed shows in central Pennsylvania in the aptly named burg of Centre Hall PA, hosted by the Chambersburg Area Kennel Club & the Nita Nee Kennel Club, starting Friday. 

Your remaining choices are traditional Saturday/Sunday fare in Medina OH with the Medina Kennel Club & the Richland County Kennel Club, in Philpot KY with the Owensboro's River City Kennel Club, in Weston WI with the Paper Cities Kennel Club, or 2000 miles west in Portland OR with the Portland Kennel Club.    We expect entries to be large at all these shows.  If you can visit one of these events you won’t be disappointed.
