GCH CH Skyscots Texas Hold’Em

We love living in the South.  People down here generally keep the government at arms length and as a result it is very dog friendly country.  However, we do occasionally have some nasty weather, a situation compounded by the fact that we live in Memphis’ historic district where the trees are 200 years old and the power grid is nearly as old.  When you combine old trees and old power lines, you get frequent power outages.    We’ve suffered through two annoying outages in the last week, which has delayed us bringing you results.  So without out further explanations or excuses.  Here’s what’s been happening the last two days.  

GCH CH Chancellor Flirt's High Flyin' Gladiator  

Out in Elk City OK fanciers gathered Thursday for four days with the West Central Oklahoma Kennel Club.  On Thursday the Golden Retriever, Bravo Rycroft's A Wrink L N Thyme, the Saluki, GCH CH Sandstorm Blue Nile Bubbles of Jatara, the Rottweiler, GCH CH Chancellor Flirt's High Flyin' Gladiator, the Norwich Terrier, GCH CH Skyscots Texas Hold’Em, the Toy Poodle, Donnchada Angel Wings At Dulcinea, the Bulldog, GCH CH Mytoys Epic Against the Wind, and the Rough Collie, CH Arrowhill Swords Held High all showed up in Charles Trotter’s final.  

He went with the two black & tan dogs, the Rottweiler, Pilot, who got the Reserve, and the Norwich, Decker, who took home the Best In Show.  While Decker and handler Brenda Combs are no strangers to Oklahoma, we are delighted to see that Decker and Brenda have been out and about more this year.  The two of them together are a lot of fun to watch.  We will definitely be looking for this one at Montgomery.  We have this as Decker’s sixth big rosette of the year.  

GCH CH Wind Dancer Jenstar Backstage Pass  

Friday, Decker & Brenda, would be the only of the Thursday finalists to make it back to Bradley Jenkins final.  Making their first appearance of the set were the Vizla, Regal Point Pinnacle of Kilauea, the Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen, GCH CH Soletrader Maggie May at M&M, the Boxer, GCH CH Winfall I Dream of Style, the Silky Terrier, GCH CH Wind Dancer Jenstar Backstage Pass, the Schipperke, GCH CH Dante Fire When Ready HOF, and the Australian Shepherd, GCH CH Harmony Hills Money Talks.  

Decker would pick up the RBIS and the Silky, Andy, would take the BIS.  It’s Andy is a multi specialty and Toy Group winner and  was the Silky Terrier breed winner at the 2011 AKC/Eulanuba National Championship.  This is his first all breed BIS.  Congratulations to breeders/owners Teresa Gallegos & Linda Hurt.
