GCH CH Hallmark Jolei Austin Powers

The Midland Michigan Kennel Club finished up their day two show early today with Katie Gammill’s final.  Her seven options were the German Wirehaired Pointer, CH Mt View’s Ripsnorter Silver Charm, the Afghan Hound, GCH CH Thaon’s Wall Street, the Giant Schnauzer, CH Kenro‘s fleeting Moment, the Smooth Fox Terrier, GCH CH Waybroke Broxden Turning Tanner, the Shih Tzu, GCH CH Hallmark Jolei Austin Powers, the Lhasa Apso, GCH CH Northwind Nothing But Trouble, and the Old English Sheepdog, GCH CH Windchymes Change of Winds Chistopher.

Best went to the Shih Tzu, Austin.  It was the 20th all breed final for the winner of last weekend’s Shih Tzu Club of America National Specialty, yet his first all breed BIS of the year.  We love a persistent Shih Tzu. We say, "it's about time" and congratulations to breeder/handler Luke Ehricht, co-breeder Diane Ehricht, and owners Joe & Bobbi Walton.
