Yesterday’s Starved Rock Kennel Club show in Wheaton IL was the only all breed show in the US Thursday and as such it drew several of the nation’s top dogs looking for a few extra points. The Number One & Number Two Dogs All Breeds, the German Wirehaired Pointer, GCH CH Mt View’s Ripsnorter Silver Charm, and the English Springer Spaniel, GCH CH Wynmoor Champagne Supernova, finished two/one in Christinna Hubbell’s Sporting Group, with the Springer, Peyton, getting a pass to Michele Billings’ final.

Peyton was joined in the BIS ring by the Harrier, GCH CH Downhome Hitech Innovator, AKC’s Number Seven Dog All Breeds, the Kuvasz, Szumeria’s Wildwood Silver Six Pence, the Smooth Fox Terrier, GCH CH J’Cobe Broxden Danea, the Shi Tzu, GCH CH Hallmark Jolei Bells Will Be Ringing, the Bulldog, GCH CH Accolades Spencer, and the Old English Sheepdog, GCH CH Lambluv Gambolon Blue Thunder.
Reserve would go to a dog not among AKC’s Top 100 (not yet), the Smooth Fox, Nea, and Best In Show went to America’s Number Two Hound, the Harrier, Chet. Chet was last year’s Hound Group winner at the AKC/Eukanuba National Championship and leads all hounds in Hound Groups win this year with 95.
