While many of the nation’s finest flocked to Pennsylvania this weekend in search of a piece of the big point action, others preferred to stay closer to home and enjoy their local shows.  The Northwest Arkansas Kennel Club was in Fayetteville AR for their two shows.

The first day wrapped up with James Briley looking over the Clumber Spaniel, GCH CH Cajun’s A Change Is Gonna Come, the Pharaoh Hound, GCH CH Northgate’s AS You Like It, the Bernese Mountain Dog, Lavish’s Dark Horse v Ayehli, the Smooth Fox Terrier, Trimore Three Things to Remember Nilee, the Pomeranian, GCH CH CR Simply Irresistible, the Chinese Shar-Pei, GCH CH Chaoyang Chick Magnet at Asia, and the Shetland Sheepdog, GCH CH Kylene Eden The Dragon Slayer HIC.

The top Pharaoh Hound in AKC history added another BIS to his record, his 29th of the year & his 46th career BIS.
