GCH CH Jamelle’s Aristocrat V Elba RN
The day two show of the Hatboro Dog Club ended a little later than yesterday’s day one show, but it was well worth waiting for. Two of the day one finalists were not even entered today, but there were plenty of worthy dogs to replace them.
Kathleen Steen’s seven finalists were the German Wirehaired Pointer, Mt View’s Ripsnorter Silver Charm, the American Foxhound, GCH CH Kiarry’s Pandora’s Box, the St Bernard, GCH CH Jamelle’s Aristocrat V Elba RN, the Russell Terrier, CH Goldsands Columbus, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, GCH CH We-Syng Royal Etiquette, the Bichon Frise, GCH CH Saks Winning Card, and the German Shepherd Dog, GCH CH Babheim’s Captain Crunch.
GCH CH Babheim’s Captain Crunch
Judge Steen decided she would do her Reserve award first because she did not want the BIS to seem “anticlimactic”. Reserve went to the GSD, Capi, and the BIS was anything, but anticlimactic, as her surprise BIS was the Saint, Aristocrat. The massively impressive dog dressed in a splashy, broken pattern coat, had put on a dignified, but spirited performance winning the approval of the gallery and the judge. Congratulations to breeders Michelle & Jack Mulligan, owners Edward & Linda Baker and handler Melody “Snooki” Salmi
