Meanwhile back on the East Coast dog folks were gathered in York PA for five days of festivities. We did give you the results from last Wednesday & Thursday.
On Friday, it was the hometown York Kennel Club hosting and judge Jan Paulk in the final ring with the Black Cocker Spaniel, GCH CH Casablanca’s Thrilling Seduction, the American Foxhound, GCH CH Kiarry’s Pandora’s Box, the Samoyed, GCH CH McMagic's Candie Ham Of Pebbles' Run, the American Staffordshire Terrier, GCH CH Wonderlands Heavily Armed Agitator, the Shih Tzu, GCH CH Krissey's Savvy Jasper, the Miniature Poodle, GCH CH Surrey Sugar Baby, and the Australian Shepherd, GCH CH Propwash Reckon.
It was 2011’s Number One Dog All Breeds, the Cocker, Beckham, picking up his 13th BIS of 2012. Will it be good enough to hold on to his Number Three All Breed ranking? We will be the first to tell you.
