New York fanciers spent a leisurely three days in Apalachin NY this past weekend for the Susque-Nango Kennel Club’s and the Tioga County Kennel Club’s three shows. However one dog kept busy, the Irish Water Spaniel, GCH CH Whistlestop’s Riley on Fire, spent the time collecting three Sporting group Ones & two BIS.

On Friday Riley and handler Richard Krieger plead their case with Robert Indeglia at the SNKC’s final. Judge Indeglia’s Reserve was the French Bulldog, GCH CH Tinkertime Justus Smooth Operator. Also on hand were the American Foxhound, GCH CH Kiarry’s Pandora’s Box, the Doberman Pinscher, GCH CH D’s Remember When, the Lakeland Terrier, GCH CH Larkspur Acadia Save Me a Spot, the Pug, GCH CH Castlerock Pine Cone Mountain Rain, and the Pembroke Welsh Corgi, GCH CH Nchanted Silk Lining.

As you read below Riley’s sister, Annah, was also picking up a big BIS in Enumclaw WA on Sunday. Annah is the Number One Irish Water Spaniel in breed points, but Riley is Number One in all breed points with five all breed Best to her credit this year. Now that’s a sister act we can endorse.
