We start our dog show week with a renewal of the head-to-head drama we have seen these past couple of weeks as four of the Top Five Dogs All Breeds gathered in Greensboro NC for today’s Danville Kennel Club show.
The excitement started early as the Number One Dog, the German Wirehaired Pointer, GCH CH Mt View’s Ripsnorter Silver Charm, faced off with the Number Two Dog, the English Springer Spaniel, GCH CH Wynmoor Champagne Supernova in Stephanie Hedgepath’s final. However, neither would advance as it would be the English Cocker Spaniel, GCH CH Edgewood Casino Celebrity, who would advance, while the Springer, Peyton, & the GWP, Oakley, would pack up their Group Two & Group Three ribbons and head for the RV.
Joining Celine and handler Marcelo Veras in William deVilleneuve‘s final were the Number Three & Five Dogs, the Doberman Pinscher, GCH CH Protocol’s Veni Vidi Vici, & the Affenpinscher, GCH CH Banana Joe V Tani Kazari. Rounding out the final seven were the 15” Beagle, GCH CH Lochnaw Something Good, the Scottish Terrier, GCH CH Lomondview Clementina, the Keeshond, GCH CH Sprookje Lunar Appellation HOF, and the Puli, GCH CH Rumpus Bumpus.
It would be the Affenpinscher, Joey, playing bridesmaid for the eighth time since the Reserve award went into effect, while the Doberman, FiFi, got to be the center of attention for the 28th time this year. Whatdaya think? Pretty exciting stuff for a Wednesday.
