Every year in January, as we do our show reports we note all the new names that pop up in the group placements. While it not unheard of for a dog to win a Group from the classes, it still catches our eye when it happens. One of the names we kept seeing was that of the German Shepherd Dog, CH Bandheim’s Captain Crunch. We first reported that he took a Group from the classes back on January 19th.. Since that time he has taken four more Herding Groups, one in Atlanta, two in Indianapolis, and yesterday in Greenville SC
Today he grabbed over 1500 points and the BIS at the Hendersonville Kennel Club show and he did it over major competition. Rounding out Robert Hutton’s final were the Irish Water Spaniel, GCH CH Poole’s Ide Got Water RN, the Whippet, GCH CH Starline Chanel, the Newfoundland, GCH CH Voldemort At Chekrd Des Oursons Du Vent, the Norfolk Terrier, GCH CH Cracknor Crosrr The Ts, yesterday’s BIS winner, the Affenpinscher, GCH CH Banana Joe V Tani Kazari, and the Bulldog, GCH CH Bully Hills James Dean.
We do believe it’s the three year old’s first all breed BIS, but we really don’t know much about this dog. If anyone out there can enlighten us, please do. Congratulations to breeder/owner Carlos Navarro, and fellow owners James Moses, D Stern, J Lange, & M Deschamps.
