The North Country Kennel Club had the first day of the four day stop in Syracuse NY. Yesterday’s final included the German Wirehaired Pointer, GCH CH Mt View’s Ripsnorter Silver Charm, the American Foxhound, GCH CH Kiarry’s Pandora’s Box, the Doberman Pinscher, GCH CH D’s Remember When, the Lakeland Terrier, GCH CH Larkspur Acadia Save Me a Spot, the Affenpinscher, GCH CH Banana Joe v Tani Kazari, the Chow Chow, GCH CH Imagine Love’s second Chance, and the Briard, GCH CH Fairytale’s Balthazar Le Sage.  

Col Joe Purkhiser’s BIS was the GWP, Oakley.  Oakley & handler Phil  Booth are locked in a close battle for the Number One Dog All Breeds.  We will have to wait until the weekend is over to see if Oakley has regained the top spot with his tenth big rosette of the year.


  1. Go Oakley and Phil!

    Love Oaskley's expression in this photo.

  2. I love this dog. The sporting breeds are unfamiliar to me but he exudes confidence and quality. MS
