GCH CH Lobato's JitterBug Man

Once again, we were lucky enough to have a reader provide us with results from Fredericksburg VA where the Northern Neck Kennel Club Of Virginia had imposed a blackout on their day two show.  BIS judge Charles Olvis chose his Best from the Black Cocker, GCH CH Casablanca’s Thrilling Seduction,  the Scottish Deerhound, GCH CH Foxcliffe hickory Wind,  the Great Dane, GCH CH Lobato's JitterBug Man, the Scottish Terrier, GCH CH Lomondview Clementina, day one BIS winner the Affenpinscher, GCH CH Banana Joe V Tani Kazari, the Miniature Poodle, CH Surrey Sugar Baby, and the Border Collie, GCH CH Bon-Clyde's Take One.

BIS was the striking Great Dane, James .  James was the Number One Great Dane in 2010 (based on breed points) with 8 Working Group top prizes. Congratulations to breeders/owners Mary Ellen Thomas & Joy P Lobato, co-owner Glenda Cole, and handler Marie Sommershoe.


  1. It appears that someone has had a change of heart - results for both Weds. and today's shows are now posted on InfoDog.

    Results are up on Infodog.

  3. It appears the loudly squeaking wheels got the grease. The idea that not publishing the results would somehow boost catalog sales is ludicrous.

    People who use their smart phones at shows to get a listing of entries in the catalogs to see who is there or who a particular dog is are the same ones who in the pre-smartphone days would have asked their neighbor with the catalog if they could have a look at it or would go over to the steward's desk and look at the catalog there.

    People who purchase catalog generally do so because they 1) have a large entry breed and want to mark class winners/make comments on entered dogs contemporaneous to the judging 2)want to have a quick reference to look at while they are watching multiple breeds and don't have a smartphone or want to mess with expense and time of pulling up a catalog and/or 3) because they want to have something that they can peruse at their leisure later or put on their bookshelf for later reference.

    The first group generally have no plans or intent to buy a catalog. The second group would have purchased a catalog anyway. Rarely, would the fact catalog entries were available online or not change either groups intent or desire to purchase a catalog.
