GCH CH Banana Joe V Tani Kazari  

It’s just Thursday and the Naugatuck Valley Kennel Club already has two shows in the record books this week.  They started on Wednesday in West Springfield MA with Wendy Willhauck calling the BIS.  The seven she saw were the English Springer Spaniel, GCH CH Cerise Red Hot n’ Blue, the Basenji, GCH CH Akuaba N Eldorado Speed Of Light, the Doberman Pinscher, GCH CH D’s Remember When, the Kerry Blue terrier, CH Class Act By Hallsblu, the Affenpinscher, GCH CH Banana Joe V Tani Kazari, the Bulldog, GCH CH Tango’s A Perfect Present for the Dulins, and the Pembroke Welsh Corgi, GCH CH Dalarno Bite Song at Morningstar.

Judge Willhauck made history by being the first judge to select both a Best In Show and a Reserve Best In Show at an AKC show.  Her Best was the Affenpinscher, Joey, and her Reserve was the Bulldog, Blitz.  Joey is the country’s Number One Toy dog with 21 BIS this year.  However, it likely that Blitz’ win will be the one that is remembered,  Congratulations to his breeder/owner Millie Watkins, his co-breeder Brian Holmes, and owners Martin & Janet Dulin.
