Chesterhope State of the Art

As we slog through the email we gathered while in New York, we realize that we owe you a report on the West Texas Kennel Club shows in Midland Texas last weekend.  The Pointer, Chesterhope State of the Art, made a dramatic debut taking both of the big rosettes from the Open Bitch class.

On Saturday Roger Hartinger preferred Miley to the Whippet, GCH CH Karasar's Rememberence, the Siberian Husky, Icewind's Blue Suede Shoes, his Reserve winner, the Welsh Terrier, CH Malvado Devil Woman, the Italian Greyhound, CH Infiniti Rave Review At Valhasar, the Chow Chow, GCH CH Dreamland's Wanna Be A Billionaire, and the Shetland Sheepdog, GCH CH Karosel Kartwheels.

GCH CH Karasar's Rememberence

On Sunday Miley was Paula Hartinger’s pick over the above named Whippet, the Doberman Pinscher, GCH CH O’s Godiva Demitasse Chocolate, the Aforementioned Welsh Terrier, the Pug, GCH CH  Pocket’s Ameci, the Keeshond, GCH CH Showtyme’s Happy Feet, and the Pembroke Welsh Corgi,  Tri-Umph The Gem of The Ocean.  Her reserve was the Owner/Handler Number One Dog, the Whippet, Britanee.

These were the first AKC BIS for the five year old bitch.   However, this is far from her first big win.  Miley is a multi-BIS winner in her native New Zealand and we look for her to do the same here. Congratulations to breeder Diane O'Neil, owner Jordyn O'Neil, and handler Brian Livingston.
