Another OKC Summer Classic is in the record books and today’s closer was just as dramatic as the prior three days. First the Black Cocker Spaniel, GCH CH Casablanca’s Thrilling Seduction, was absent in the breed today, making it a little easier for the German Wirehaired Pointer, GCH CH Mt View’s Ripsnorter Silver Charm, to take yet another Sporting Group One.
Joining Oakley in Donna Buxton's final were the 15” Beagle, GCH CH K-Run Lanbur The Truth All Around, the Kuvasz, GCH CH Szumeria’s Wildwood Silver Six Pence, the Miniature Schnauzer, GCH CH Allaruth Just Kidding v Sole Baye, the Blenheim & Prince Charles English Toy Spaniel, GCH CH Royalist Ready to Reign, the Schipperke, GCH CH Dante’s Fire When Ready HOF, and the Bouvier des Flandres, GCH CH Quiche’s Grand Finale.
The nation’s Number One Dog, the GWP, Oakley, capped a very successful week, collecting his second BIS of the set, bringing his 2012 total to 33 BIS.
