Our Monday Morning Mop Up begins in Erie PA where the hometown Erie Kennel Club was set up for two days.  The seven that made it to Gary Anderson’s final on Saturday were the English Springer Spaniel, CH Cerise Dixieland Duchess, an Afghan Hound from the classes, Winterbourne's Mijkelh Amanyara, the Newfoundland, CH Rosewood's Royal Flush, the Welsh Terrier, GCH CH Darwyn Esmeralda in Sanherpinc, the Pomeranian, CH Babbie’s Capitan Of The Ship Of Mtn Crest, the Standard Poodle, CH Hillwood Dassin Rock On By, and the GCH CH Deja Vu Mia Cool As A Cucumber. 

The two that he chose were his Reserve, the nine month old Afghan, Qi, and the Best In Show, the Welsh Terrier, Emme.  Emme is just beginning her show career which has included two Bests of Breed at the 2012 Hatboro Kennel Club shows Montgomery County weekend.  This is her first AKC BIS.  Congratulations to breeders Larisa Hotchin & Bruce Schwartz, owners Judith Anspach, Mary Duafala, & Pam Allen, and handler Santiago Pinto.

  1. Emme did not win BOB at Montgomery County, that honor went to one of the Bayleigh-Shareab Welsh Terriers (I forget which one.)
