Despite intermittent thunder showers, fanciers slogged on at today’s Grand Rapids Kennel Club Show in Kalamazoo MI.  Today’s show was the largest of the Apple Blossom Cluster attracting better than 1700 dogs, some taking advantage  of the multiple specialties and supported entries.  

The seven who got the most benefit of all those points were the German Wirehaired Pointer, GCH CH Mt View’s Ripsnorter Silver Charm, the Whippet, GCH CH Sporting Fields Bahama Sands, the Komondor, GCH CH Nagyalma Unforgettable Too, a fine representative of our breed, the Cairn Terrier, GCH CH Cyntu’s Twist n Shout, the Shih Tzu, GCH CH Hallmark Jolei Bells Will Be Ringing, the Bichon Frise, GCH CH Vogel flight’s “Honor” to Pillowtalk, and the Smooth Collie, GCH CH Travlers Pierce Arrow.  

Best went to Luke & Diane Ehricht’s latest protégé, the Shih Tzu, Willy.  It’s the first for the three year old.  We expect more will be on the way.  Congratulations to breeders/owners/handlers  Luke & Diane Ehricht.
