As we work our way back east, we stop in Alexandria LA where the Alexandria Kennel Club took the second half of this week’s only four day stop.  Check our archives for results on the first two days with the Baton Rouge Kennel Club.

 On Saturday, Murrel Purkhiser’s final included the Weimaraner, GCH CH WinWeim's It's My Grey Goose, the Harrier, GCH CH Downhome Hi-Tech Innovator, the Great Dane, GCH CH Longo Miller N Lore Diamond Lil, the Norwich Terrier, GCH CH Skyscot's Texas Hold' Em, the Papillon, GCH CH Copella's Rising Attraction, the Bichon Frise, GCH CH Saks Hamelot Little Drummer Boy, and the Cardigan Welsh Corgi, GCH CH Aubrey's Tails Of Mystery.

Best went to the Harrier, Chet.  It’s the first of the year for Chet, who finished 2011 with five Bests In Show and 17 Hound Groups, including the Group at last month’s AKC/Eukanuba National Championship.  Chet is one of our picks for this year’s Westminster Hound Group and we think he is a DOG2WATCH.  Congratulations to breeders Susan Lowder, Ken and Miriam Nell, owners Carla & Joe Sanchez, and handlers Jorge & Suzie Olivera.

GCH CH Rocheuses Me And My Shadow At Cornus

Colonel Joe Purkhiser closed the set on Sunday with Chet, the above named Great Dane & Bichon, the English Springer Spaniel, CH Designers I Think I Am In A Dance Off, the Miniature Schnauzer, GCH CH Rockyhill Icees Raisin' The Bar, the Pomeranian, GCH CH Bar-Net Rocky Road Of Samron, the Bouvier des Flandres, GCH CH Rocheuses Me And My Shadow At Cornus.

His Best In Show was the Bouvier, Casper.  It’s the second of the year for Casper and handler Heather Johnson.


  1. That would be Casper handled by Heather Johnson, as she has put both BIS's on Casper this year, and most of them last year as well. I don't believe Colton was even in LA, just Heather.
