Great Lakes fanciers gathered in Wheaton IL for yesterday’s Starved Rock Kennel Club show, the first of four in the Chicago area this week.  Top dogs  from all over the nation braved the threat of winter weather, scrambling for the last available points of the year. 

Sharon Krogh’s seven hopefuls were the German Wirehaired Pointer, GCH CH Mt. View's Ripsnorter Silver Charm, the Pharaoh Hound, GCH CH Northgate’s As You Like It, the Doberman Pinscher, GCH CH Cambria's Must Be Fate, the Smooth Fox Terrier, GCH CH Waybroke Broxden Turning Tanner, the Japanese Chin, GCH CH Pem Wy-Syng Lucky Mi, the Standard Poodle, GCH CH Jaset’s Satisfaction, and the Bouvier des Flandres, GCH CH Frontier's License To Carry At Margaux.

Her Best In Show was the Swedish import, the Pharaoh Hound, Qing.  Qing, currently a Texas resident, is the nation’ Number Nine Dog All Breeds with 33 BIS and 120 Hound Groups this year.
