GCH CH Casablanca’s Thrilling Seduction

In addition to the four shows we had in western Tennessee in Jackson, the Greater Kingsport Kennel Club hosted two shows in the town of Gray in the eastern part of the state.  AKC’s Number One Dog All Breeds, the Black Cocker Spaniel, GCH CH Casablanca’s Thrilling Seduction, picked up yet another set of bookends winning both of the GKKC’s two offerings.  Read about day one here.  Today it was Jane Roppolo who chose Beckham from a seven that included the 13” Beagle, GCH CH Skyline’s Dream Big, the Boxer from the 12-18 month bitch class, Fourbears‘ Scarlett Robe for Linmar, the Dandie Dinmont Terrier, GCH CH Redclay Dreamboat Lieutenant Disher, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, GCH CH Stepamgar King of Memphis, from the 9-12 month puppy dog class, Byrum’s a Kiss is Just a Kiss, and the Pembroke Welsh Corgi, GCH CH Dalarno Nite Song at Morningstar

While it is true we have great AKC dogs out every year, each year we usually have different breeds in our Top Ten.  We haven’t had a Cocker Spaniel in the Top Ten since 2004 when the Parti-Color, CH San Jo's Born To Win, finished the year as the Number Five Dog All Breeds.   We will let the breed historians tell us if a Cocker has ever been Number One.  The point is, get out there and see this one.
