In contrast to the nasty weather and huge numbers of the Pacific Northwest show scene, was today’s West Oahu Kennel Club in Ewa HI. Exhibitors were treated to the usual beautiful weather and a leisurely schedule with just 276 dogs present and competing.
The seven considered by for Best In Show by judge Sandy Wheat were the Labrador Retriever, Misty Mountain A Cut Above, the 13” Beagle, GCH CH El Caporal, the Doberman Pinscher, GCH CH Fantasy Island’s Inspiration, the Kerry Blue Terrier, Waimanalo Blues Barney, the Pomeranian, CH Sofine’s So You Think You Can Dance, the Lhasa Apso, GCH CH Xerlane’s Kid Rock, and the Australian Shepherd, CH Aumoehoku Dipped In Chocolate.
Best went to the two year old Aussie, his career second and his first of 2012. Congratulations to breeders/owners Tina Beatty & Lily Bhalang. Hopefully one of our island readers can send us a photo?
