GCH CH Cragsmoor Buddy Goodman

Atlanta GA was the place to be this week if you were looking for majors and ranking enhancing big points.  The Douglasville Kennel Club Of Georgia opened the three all breed set and finished up the day with Lee Canalizo’s final.  Hoping to collect more than 1500 points were the Wirehaired Pointing Griffon, GCH CH Fireside’s Spontaneous Combustion, the Greyhound, GCH CH GrandCru Erasmus, the Great Dane, GCH CH DRD’s The Revelation, the winner of Thursday’s Atlanta Terrier Club show, the Skye Terrier, GCH CH Cragsmoor Buddy Goodman, the winner of Thursday’s Greater Atlanta Toy Dog Association show, the Miniature Pinscher, GCH CH Marlex Classic Red Glare, the Lhasa Apso, GCH CH Ta Se Bon James Bond, and the Puli, GCH CH Cordmaker Rumpus Bumpus.

Day one was one for the record books as judge Canalizo’s BIS was the 37th career win for the Skye, Buddy, breaking a record that has stood for 40 plus years.  Buddy is the most consistent Terrier in the US with 98 Terrier Groups this year alone, nearly twice the number of any other Terrier.  Our congratulations to breeders Eugene Z Zaphiris & Matthew H Stander, owners Carolyn Koch & Victor Malzoni Jr, and handler Larry Cornelius.
