By taking on our first four day cluster in a while we had hoped to test our stamina and maybe pick up some points on our Cairn bitch.  We are happy to report that we did all right on the former, though we did cheat a little by packing up after our morning judging.  While we did leave before today’s final in Jackson TN we do have lots of results for you from yesterday & today.

GCH CH PalaceGarden Malachy

First, from Marietta OH, we hear that Saturday’s second iteration of the Greater Clarksburg WV Kennel Club ended with Michele Billings choosing the Pekingese, GCH CH PalaceGarden Malachy, as her Best In Show.  Malachy and owner/handler David Fitzpatrick were accompanied by the winner of both Thursday’s & Friday’s shows, the Golden Retriever, GCHC CH Summits Emery It’s In The Bag, the Pharaoh Hound, GCH CH Northgate’s aS You Like It, the Samoyed, GCH CH Stolichnaya, the Norfolk Terrier, GCH CH Cracknor’s Cross the Ts, the Standard Poodle, GCH CH Hillwood Ale Kai Walking On Air, and the Briard Bigtree-Act All About Love.

Malachy, the Number Two Dog All Breeds, is a step ahead of the rest of the field, with 13 BIS & 35 Toy Group wins.

GCH CH Cracknor’s Cross the Ts

Sunday the Blennerhassett Kennel Club took over and asked Charlotte McGowan to judge their day two BIS.  While we are still trying to find out who the herding Group finalists was, we can tell you that five of Saturday’s finalists did come back for a second crack at Best In Show, with the Bichon Frise, GCH CH Vogel flight’s “Honor” to Pillowtalk making her first appearance of the weekend.  Best was the country’s Number One Norfolk Terrier, Plum, who picked up her third BIS of the year.
