GCH CH Starline’s Chanel

One of our Top Ten Dogs All Breeds headed for the Land of the Midnight Sun and Kenai AK, the home of the world’s largest Salmon this weekend.  However, the Whippet, GCH CH Starline’s Chanel, trophies from the visit were from the Kenai Kennel Club’s three shows.

Chanel & handler Lori Wilson took advantage of the Alaskan summer to collect two BIS and three Hound Group Ones.  We don’t have all the details, but we can tell you this much.  On Saturday Chanel was challenged for Chris Walkowicz’ eye by the Irish Setter, GCH CH Glen Rose Solitary Star, the BullMastiff, Can CH Leathernecks It's a Bull's Eye, the Colored Bull Terrier, CH Magor the Minotaur from Stone Bull, the Bulldog, CH IMOK‘s Snowflake Jake, the Papillion, CH Petitchien's  Moon River, and the Pembroke Welsh Corgi, Arctic Tern’s Sir Baskin Robbin.
