GCH CH Meadowlake Simply Sinful

Chicago area fanciers were in Woodstock IL this weekend for the Fox River Valley Kennel Club’s two shows.    Saturday they were treated to Merle Taylor’s final with the Golden Retriever, CH Malagold's Wish Upon A Star, the Basset Hound, GCH CH Fort Merrill Topsfield Yahoo, the Great Dane, GCH CH Diola's Start Your Engines, the Border Terrier, GCH CH Meadowlake Simply Sinful, the Brussels Griffon, GCH CH Knolland Amber Moon, the Tibetan Terrier, GCH CH Ri Lee's Diamonds Are Forever, and the Belgian Tervuren, DC HR Magical Dragon's Wizard CD RE TD HSAds HSBs NF.

BIS at the opener was the Border Terrier, Maya.  That’s three for Maya this season, all of which have come in the last 30 days.  She also has a suit case full of Terrier Group firsts, all good enough for us to say this is a DOG2WATCH.

GCH CH Hallmark Jolei Austin Powers

Tom Kilcullen celebrated his birthday Sunday by choosing the day two BIS.  His options were the English Springer Spaniel, Foxboro Rendition Top Call, the Afghan Hound, GCH CH Wynsyr Taking Chances, the Samoyed, GCH CH Sammantic Now Or Never, the Norfolk Terrier, GCH CH Max-Well's Violet, the Shih Tzum GCH CH Hallmark Jolei Austin Powers, the previously named Tibetan Terrier, and the Border Collie, GCH CH Bon-Clyde's Pistol Pete Of Nahrof.

He chose the striking Shih Tzu, Austin.  Austin seems to have hit a summer bloom, collecting a National Specialty win and two BIS in the last 30 days.


  1. Why is there no picture of the BIS Puppy? Your club premotes BIS Puppy so it's only right you post the name and picture of the dog / breed.

  2. The Fox River Valley Kennel Club did not submit this report. As editor/publisher of this blog, I am the sole arbiter of what is printed on the blog. As a one man shop, I cover the BIS winners and seven group winners of over 1500 all breed shows a year. Regrettably, I do not have the resources to cover Best Puppies, Best Bred By, or other special categories.
