Dr Wanda Spediacci had the judge’s book at today’s Ingham County Kennel Club show in East Lansing MI.  Her final lineup included the English Springer Spaniel, GCH CH Ocoee Dsqd With A Vengeance, the Greyhound, CH Gaia’s Elfin Dance, the Great Dane, GCH CH Valhalla’s Ascent At Rochford, the Bedlington Terrier, GCH CH Kaylynn’s Party Crasher, the Shih Tzu, GCH CH Hallmark Jolei Austin Powers, the Xoloitzcuintli, GCH CH Bayshore Giorgio Armani, and the Smooth Collie, GCH CH Traveler’s Mustang Sally.    

Grabbing the first big rosette of the set was the biggest among them, the Great Dane, Sierra.  It’s the second this year for the three year old bitch.  We are sure there will be more.


  1. At Ingham, the shih tzu GRCh Hallmark Jolei Austin Powers won the toy group

  2. I think I've seen Sierra (and taken her photo), she is very striking and I really liked her.

  3. Billy, I couldn't help mention that at the two MI shows and the two Edwardsville IL shows, ALL four Herding Group winners were FOUR different Smooth Collies! Two (Mustang Sally & Pierce Arrow) are littermates from the same kennel. Smoothies have come a long way baby!
