We were happy to see two of our extreme breeds (we know we will hear about that characterization) dominate the action here in the South last week. The Pekingese, GCH CH Oakhill's Two Times The Dragon, and the Bulldog, GCH CH Itsa Brix, each collected two BIS this past week. The Peke, Deuce, took both of the top prizes at the Decatur Alabama Kennel Club’s two shows and the Bulldog, Brix, grabbed the BACK2BACK BIS at the Huntsville Kennel Club’s two shows in Priceville AL.
On Thursday Janice Pardue chose Deuce and Brix out of a seven that included the Irish Setter, GCH CH Herihundas Table for One, the Wirehaired Dachshund, Raydachs Ride My Ducati Sw, the Great Dane, GCH CH Longo Miller N Lore's Diamond Lil, the Wire Fox Terrier, GCH CH Gordon's Bite Of The Apple, and the Finnish Lapphund, Sugarok Macce Too.
CH Insights No Bias No Bull
Friday’s DAKC final fell to Peggy Dillard Carr who gave the BIS to Deuce and the RBIS to the Longhaired Dachshund, CH Insights No Bias No Bull, while the Welsh Springer Spaniel, CH Rolyart's Tale-Gator, the Samoyed, GCH CH Polar Mist Cruz'n T'Party At Zamosky, the Miniature Schnauzer, GCH CH Allaruth Just Kidding V Sole Baye, the Bichon Frise, GCH CH Vogelflight’s “Honor” to Pillowtalk, and the German Shepherd Dog, GCH CH Karizma's Ike Of Edale, watched.

There to the end were the previously seen English Springer, LH Dachshund, Solo's Playboy SL, Schnauzer, & Sheltie.
