The Wire, Sky, started the weekend 9500 points behind the Number Three Dog, the Doberman Pinscher, GCH CH Veni Vidi Vici.  She is now less than 7000 points behind.  Can she catch the Doberman, FiFi, or even the Top Two?  We will be the first to tell you when the standings change.

While the north shore of Long Island in Suffolk County NY is some of the most exclusive real estate in the US, it is not true that exhibitors had to get a blood test to show at the  Flowerfield Fairgrounds in St James NY, the site of today’s Suffolk County Kennel Club.
