GCH CH AfterAll Painting the Sky
The Cabrillo Kennel Club’s two shows in Valley Center in Southern California were our third West Coast set this weekend. On Saturday the seven waiting to get BIS judge Vicki Abbot’s decision were the Field Spaniel, Pridemark's War & Wisdom, the Ibizan Hound, GCH CH Harehill's Ace In The Hole, the Portuguese Water Dog, CH Roseknoll Sunny Benjamin, the Wire Fox Terrier, GCH CH AfterAll Painting the Sky, the Miniature Pinscher, GCH CH Brackley My Amazing Warrior, the Miniature Poodle, GCH CH Durandel Bella Donna, and the Shetland Sheepdog, Castlebay Noteworthy.
Her RBIS was the Portie and her BIS was the country’s Number One Terrier, the Wire, Sky. Sky’s 23rd BIS of the year will keep her comfortably in the Number Four All Breeds spot.
Sunday Sky was the only of the Saturday finalists to make it back to see Doris Miller. Rounding out the seven were the Weimaraner, GCH CH Silhouette’s LifeInTheFastLane, the Borzoi, GCH CH Aruzia Priority One JC, the Rottweiler, CH Banshee's Duke Of Rott'n Acre's RA, the Shih Tzu, GCH CH Foxfire Pocket Edition, the Xoloitzcuintli, GCH CH Shida Mighty Joe Young, and the Cardigan Welsh Corgi, GCH CH Serah Celtic Legend of Llynhill.
Taking home the Reserve ribbon was the Rottweiler, Duke, while the Corgi, Dewi, got the top prize and all the points. We think this is the first BIS for Dewi, but beyond that Dewi is a mystery to us. We hope that someone will tell the owners to get us a photo to celebrate the occasion. Congratulations to breeder/owner Patrick Smith and owner Barbara J Tannahill.
A reminder to all you Reserve Best In Show winners, we do publish a photo of all RBIS winners. It’s free, send in your photos and then tell your friends your dog got a DSP shout out.
