Last year’s Somerset Hills Kennel Club show was canceled because of storms that flooded the show grounds. Today they raced to finish Joan Goldstein’s final in North Branch NJ ahead another major incoming storm. But finish they did.

The seven braving the weather were the German Wirehaired Pointer, GCH CH Mt View’s Ripsnorter Silver Charm, the Rhodesian Ridgeback, the Whirlaways Ida Belle's A Ringing, the Samoyed, GCH CH McMagic’s Candied Ham of Pebbles’Run, the Scottish Terrier, GCH CH Lomondview Clementina, the Affenpinscher, GCH CH Banana Joe v Tani Kazari, the French Bulldog, and the Bearded Collie, GCH CH Dunhill Celebration.
All that determination paid off for the GWP, Oakley, who picked up the Reserve, and for the Affenpinscher, Joey, who got the big BIS. The win, worth better than 1800 points, is Joey’s 28th of the year. The fast moving storm should clear the area tonight and fair weather is predicted for tomorrow’s Westchester County Kennel Club show.
