GCH CH Perrisblu Kennislain's Chelsey

West Coast dog fanciers finished out the old year at the site of  the 2010 AKC/Eukanuba National Championship, Long Beach CA.  You can read our report on Friday’s Beverly Hills Kennel Club show here.

The Los Encinos Kennel Club took over on Saturday and gave Carolyn Cederman her pick of the English Springer Spaniel, GCH CH Otein Cap'n Jack Sparrow, the Bloodhound, GCH CH Quiet Creek's Kiss And Tell, the Portuguese Water Dog, GCH CH Fishbay's Faith Hope And Love, the Kerry Blue Terrier, GCH CH Perrisblu Kennislain's Chelsey, the Long Coat Chihuahua, GCH Kokura Yama JP Silent Rose, the Keeshond, GCH CH Summerwind's Rumor Has It, and the Bearded Collie, GCH CH Aellen Jive Talkin'.

Her BIS was OUR DOG2WATCH, the Kerry, Chelsey.   Chelsey and handler Bill McFadden now have as many BIS as all the other Kerries in the US combined, five.  We like that.

GCH CH Brighton Lakeridge Encore

Sunday, it was Ken McDermott in the final ring for the Long Beach Kennel Club.  Back for one more try at the last big rosette of the season were Chelsey, the aforementioned Bloodhound, & Portie, the English Setter, GCH CH Set'r Ridge's Exclusively Gold, the Shih Tzu, GCH CH Peking Midnight Vision At Wenshu, the Standard Poodle, GCH CH Brighton Lakeridge Encore, and the Australian Cattle Dog, GCH CH Carben Copy's If The Shoe Fits. 

It was the winner of the Friday BHKC show, the Standard Poodle, Ally closing the season with her 46th Best In Show.  Ally finishes the year as AKC’s Number Four Dog All Breeds. 


  1. It was a great year in the ring - I enjoyed watching the dogs ringside and capturing the movement candids with my camera. See you next year, everyone!
