GCH CH Hightide Eclipse

In Roswell NM the emphasis was not on extraterrestrials, but extra special canines, as the Rio Pecos Kennel Club gave us a two show weekend.  David Kirkland’s lineup on Saturday included the Golden Retriever, CH Gemini’s High Flyer CD JH NA NAJ, the Whippet, CH Oxford Sunbeam It Happened One Night, the Mastiff, CH Oasis Like Sand Through the Hour Glass, the Wire Fox Terrier, CH Dalriada Mgk High Voltage, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, GCH CH Bekenhall Jailhouse Rock, the Standard Poodle, GCH CH Hightide Eclipse, the Bearded Collie, CH Britannia Spotacular in Blu.

Best on day one was the two year old Poodle.  With so many great Standard Poodles out every year, it’s easy to miss a good one.  We are delighted to see this Florida based girl out and about more as she and handler Christian Manelopoulos pick up their second big rosette of the year.

The sun set on day two after Beverly Capstick’s final with the German Shorthaired Pointer, CH VJK-Myst Marvel’s Adam X-Treme, the Basenji, Ahmahr Nahr’s Lost Angel Gabriel, the Rottweiler, CH Loma’s Anakin Vader RN, the Bedlington Terrier, CH Elante Evening in Paris, the Toy Poodle, CH Smash Jp Winning Ribbon, and the above named Standard Poodle & Beardie.

It was the three year old Beardie taking home her first AKC BIS. Congratulations to breeders/owners Kelly Canham & Michelle Ritter and owners Ruth Jeram & Kim Raleigh.  If you know where we can get a photo of this girl, let us know.
