We have some partial results from Denver CO and the Plum Creek Kennel Club Of Colorado day one show.  Judge Ann Hearn final seven included two of the Group winners fresh from the Westminster Kennel Club show.  Her super seven were the Black Cocker Spaniel, GCH CH Casablanca’s Thrilling Seduction, the Bloodhound, GCH CH Heather’s A Little Night Music, the Kuvasz, GCH Sumerian’s Wildwood Silver Six Pence, a yet to be identified Miniature Schnauzer, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, GCH CH Mile tree Northern Star, the Chinese Shar-Pei, GCH CH Vaje’s Miss Jayne Hathaway, and a Shetland Sheepdog,  GCH CH Thunderhill’s Apple Bottom Jeans.

Riding the Westminster Wave to a big BIS was the Shar-Pei, Miss Jayne.  It’s the first BIS this year for the Westminster Non-Sporting Group winner.  Jayne and handler Clint Livingston finished 2010 as the Number one Shar-Pei with two all breed Bests and 31 Groups.  Wanna bet she bests that record this year?  Congratulations to Clint and breeder/owners Jeff & Vicki Mauk.


  1. A lot of people were surprised when this girl went Group 1 at the Garden (I know I overheard some second-guessing.) But I had the good fortune to have ringside seats Monday night (THANK YOU, English couple who gave me your tickets!) and I have rarely seen such a great performance. Playful, alert, moving flawlessly, licking her handler.... all this from a breed that's known to be aloof. You go, Jane! I haven't cared much for Shar Pei's, but you make me reconsider!
