GCH CH Marlex Classic Red Glare
The Toy Group is always one of the most competitive at the Garden each year. This past year we watched two Toy Dogs dominate the competition, the Affenpinscher, GCH CH Banana Joe V Tani Kazari, and the Miniature Pinscher, GCH CH Marlex Classic Red Glare. The Affenpinscher, Joey, claimed the top spot with 37 BIS in 128 final appearances while the MinPin, Classie, went 30 for 102. Joey has chosen to sit out this year and rest up for the Garden. However, Classie has been busier than ever this year collecting six BIS in 14 attempts.
When we last stepped into the ring at the Garden it was with one of our Maltese. Accordingly, we will be watching 2012’s Number Three Toy Dog, the Maltese, GCH CH Scylla’s Small Kraft Re-Lit. Hank finished 2012 with 12 BIS and 55 Toy Groups. The Pug, GCH CH Hill Country Tag I’m It, burst onto the scene in May winning back2back BIS in Alexander NY at the tender age of 13 months. JJ has just gotten better since, capping the year with ten and 40 Toy Groups.
Next up, the Non-Sporting Group.
