GCH CH Tolkien Raintree Mister Baggins

Meanwhile back on the east coast, where hockey is a favorite sport, the Bearded Collie, GCH CH Tolkien Raintree Mister Baggins, has pulled off the hat trick, equally rare in dogs as on ice, three BIS in a row.  Today’s win came at the Long Island Kennel Club show in Bethpage NY.  Dr John Reese-Newson picked Roy out of line up that included the Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever, GCH CH Lennoxlove Susqudilla’s Mini Cooper, a Norwegian Elkhound from the Bred By Exhibitor class, Ellyka’s Gray Expectations, the Samoyed, GCH CH McMagic Candie Ham of Pebbles’Run, the Welsh Terrier, Sarendon It Had To Be You, the Pug, GCH CH San Remo’s Tug of War, and the Tibetan Terrier, GCH CH Salishan’s My Special Angel.

The win brings Roy’s career total to 60 all breed BIS.  Maybe they should rename him Mickey Mantle.
