GCH CH Jaset’s Satisfaction
(Photo by Jeffrey Hanlin)

While we love hitting the shows, especially the big clusters where we can actually see a lot of the breed judging, we hate coming home to a stack of unreported show results.  We will abandon our normal process of traveling across the country, east to west, and report out on the results that have been waiting the longest, i.e. the five and four show clusters.  We have fully reported out on the shows from the Western Michigan Apple Blossom Cluster and the Atlantic Show Memorial Classic in Freehold NJ.  We also gave you the results from the first day of the Memorial Weekend Classic in New Castle PA, the largest of the clusters this weekend.  Go here for a report on Thursday’s Laurel Highlands Kennel Association.  

The Trumbull County Kennel Club picked up the action on Friday, ending with Bill Cunningham mulling over the Weimaraner, GCH CH Doc N Camelot's Heaven Can Wait, the Rhodesian Ridgeback, GCH CH Spring Valley's Always There, the Doberman Pinscher, GCH CH Protocol’s Veni Vidi Vici, the Kerry Blue Terrier, CH Pennterra's Cool Beans!, the Havanese, CH Wyhaven's How D'ya Like Me Now, the Standard Poodle, GCH CH Jaset’s Satisfaction, and the Old English Sheepdog, CH Lambluv’s Daytime Hustler.  

Best went to the Number One Non-Sporting Dog in America, the Standard Poodle, London.  London has dominated the group this year with 18 BIS.
GCH CH Kiarry’s Pandora’s Box

The next two days belonged to the country’s Number One Hound, the American Foxhound, GCH CH Kiarry’s Pandora’s Box.  At Saturday’s New Castle Kennel Club show Jewel and breeder/owner/handler Lisa Miller impressed Charles Olvis more than the Irish Setter, CH Northwind's First Reign,  the Giant Schnauzer, GCH CH Kenro’s Witching Hour, the Scottish Terrier, GCH CH McVan’s be Bop Baby, the Papillon, GCH CH Fenice Le Beaudreaux, the Finnish Spitz, Marblehill’s Gleaming Icecaps, or the Pyrenean Shepherd, GCH CH La Brise Sun Bear.

Sunday was day two for the TCKC and the second BIS of the set for Jewel.  Anne Katona might have chosen  the aforementioned Giant, Scottie, Standard Poodle, or Pyrenean, or the Gordon Setter, GCH CH Sastya's Eleven Eleven, 0rthe Pug, CH Feilong By Woowoo Oh No It's Opal, but she didn’t .

That’s ten all breed Bests for Jewel, one of AKC’s rarest breeds. Jewel  started last week as the Number 15 Dog All Breeds.  Jewel is one of five dogs knocking on the door of the Top Ten.  Check back with us in a few days and we will tell you if she got in.

Jon Cole closed the set for the NCKC.  The seven that stayed to the end were the previously seen Weimaraner, Foxhound, & Standard Poodle, the Siberian Husky, CH Coventry's Peace Negotiator, the Kerry Blue Terrier, GCH CH Dornick's El Capitan, the Pug, Trump's Ascob, and the Bouvier des Flandres GCH Quiche's Grand Finale.  Best went to the three year old Kerry, his first.  Congratulations to breeder/owner Doreen Fletcher and handler Klayton Harris.   We hope to have a photo for you soon.
