GCH CH Rocheuses Me and My Shadow

Although the Kennel Club of Palm Springs had the biggest numbers of the weekend, there were other venues to get an early start on the show year.  In the Midwest the place to be was St Paul MN where the Land of Lakes Kennel Club offered up a shot at over 3500 points.  Asking Charlotte Clem Mcgowan for a piece of the action on Saturday were the  English Springer Spaniel, GCH CH Wynmoor Champagne Supernova, the Whippet, GCH CH Lucy Is Fashionably Late JC, the Great Dane, GCH CH Lobato's Code Red, the Border Terrier, GCH CH Meadowlake's Simply Sinful, the Maltese, CH Chrismans Shiny Toy Gun, the Standard Poodle, CH Brighton Endevour, the Bouvier des Flandres, GCH CH Rocheuses Me and My Shadow

Grabbing his first all breed Best of 2012 was the Bouvier, Casper.  Casper had a good year in 2011 finishing as the Number One Bouvier (all breeds) with six BIS & 29 Herding Group top prizes.  Casper was bred by Douglas W Johnson & Karen Brown, is owned by Frank & Corrine Dreyfus & M Johnson, and handled by Heather Johnson.  To them all we say, "Well Done!"

They were joined by the above named Springer, Border Terrier, & Maltese, the Longhaired Dachshund, GCH CH Hundeleben Queens Armada SL, the Samoyed, CH Hawkwinds Rocks The Gene Pool, and the Keeshond, GCH CH Karolina Bonnyvale Meant To Be.

Picking up his first BIS of the year was the English Springer Spaniel, Peyton.  Peyton ended up 2011 as the Number One English Springer Spaniel, the Number Two Sporting Dog, and the Number 13 Dog All Breeds, with 17 Bests In Show & 71 Sporting Group First awards.  Congratulations to breeders Billie, Erin, & Charlie Kerfoot & Ruth Kirby, owners Celie Florence, Beth Fink,  Erin Kerfoot, PhD, Ken Goodhue-McWilliams, PhD, & Delores Strength, and handler Robin Novack.


  1. I think you may have inadvertently flipped the Saturday and the Sunday results from St. Paul, MN.

  2. Peyton is a GORGEOUS Dog!!!
