 An early winter storm has interrupted the planned dog show calendar along the east cost of the US this weekend.  The Middleburg Kennel Club’s two shows in Leesburg VA were cancelled after the show grounds were transformed into an icy mud puddle.

However Mary Anne Brocious’  final at today’s Queensboro Kennel Club in West Springfield MA was indoors.  The seven she saw were the German Wirehaired Pointer, GCH CH Mt View’s Ripsnorter Silver Charm, the Pharaoh Hound, DC Hallam’s Ethan Ramel MC, the Doberman Pinscher, GCH CG D’s Devil wears Prada, the Cairn Terrier, GCH CH Maverston’s Double Dutch, the Toy Fox Terrier, Barbary Rough ‘n Ready, the Chinese Shar-Pei, GCH CH Firetown’s Out of the Blue, and the Bearded Collie, GCH CH Tolkien Raintree Mister Baggins.

Best today was the GWP, Oakley.  Oakley and handler Phil Booth have been doing a lot of winning lately collecting four of their six BIS this year in the last 60 days.  There is a winter storm warning still in effect for tomorrows QKC show, but New England exhibitors are a tough lot and we expect the show will go on..
