We are taking a break from the kitchen to watch the NBC broadcast of the National Dog Show, the Kennel Club of Philadelphia’s Saturday, November 17th show, the third show of the four show cluster hosted by the KCP, the Penn Treaty Kennel Club, & the Greater Philadelphia Dog Fanciers Association.

Everyone wore their television broadcast worthy outfits on Saturday in hopes that they might get a cameo during the Thanksgiving broadcast in Vicki Abbbot's final.  The seven dogs that got the most air time were the Field Spaniel, GCH CH Sandscape Pardon Me Boys, the American Foxhound, GCH CH Kiarry’s Pandora’s Box, the Great Dane, GCH CH Lobato’s Jitterbug Man, the previously seen Wire Fox, Affenpinscher, & Tibetan Spaniel, and the Bearded Collie, GCH CH Dunhill Celebration.

Getting some extra TV time was the Affenpinscher, Joey, while the Wire Fox, Sky, got the spotlight and the Best In Show.  Sky is the country’s Number One Terrier and has many of the country’s marquee titles among her 33 BIS awards this year.

At Sunday’s KCP closer  Sky and Joe would again take the top awards.   Except this time Joey would collect the BIS and Sky would get the RBIS.  Also asking for Dr Alvin Krause’s consideration were the now familiar English Setter, American Foxhound, & Tibetan Spaniel, the Rottweiler, CH Nighthawk's Livin' La Vida Loca, and the Rough Collie, GCH CH Devinwood’s A Perfect Stranger.

Joey is AKC’s Number One Toy Dog with 36 BIS and an amazing 115 Toy Groups.
