GCH CH Brighton Lakeride Encore
Our next stop is Napa CA where the invitingly named Wine Country Kennel Club held sway for two days. Matching the elegant location was the Standard Poodle, GCH CH Brighton Lakeridge Encore, who too both of the BIS back to her Washington state home.
Dr Donald Sturz had the day one final and chose Ally as HIS BIS and the Smooth Fox Terrier, CH Absolutely Out of Sight, as his RBIS. Also putting their best paw forward were the Weimaraner, GCH CH Silhouette’s LifeInTheFastLane, the Norwegian Elkhound, GCH CH Vin-Melca’s The Norseman, the Saint Bernard, GCH CH Lasquite’s Denver V Lucas, the Japanese Chin, GCH CH Victory Spencer, and the Pembroke Welsh Corgi, GCH CH Coventry Allure at Wyndstar.

Sunday Keke Kahn chose Ally and the above named Corgi as her top two. Her other options included the previously seen Weimaraner, Elkhound, & Saint Bernard, the Lakeland Terrier, GCH CH Hi-Kel Terrydale Fortune In My Eyes, and the Toy Fox Terrier, GCH CH Barbary’s That’s So Raven.
Ally and handler Tim Brazier have maintained a more relaxed schedule this year than most of our Top Twenty, but have been doing quite well, with 21 BIS in 60 finals this year.
