Our show week ended Monday in Scottsdale AZ where the Superstition Kennel Club and the Scottsdale Dog Fanciers Association hosted four shows this past weekend.  Two dogs dominated the set gathering up all the big rosettes in a game of leap frog through the four days.  We told youalready that the Wire Fox Terrier, GCH CH AfterAll Painting the Sky, took the SKC’s opener on Friday, while the Old English Sheepdog, CH Bugaboo’s Picture Perfect, grabbed the RBIS.

On Saturday Bart Miller would prefer the OES, Swagger to the Wire, Sky, whom he liked better than the Clumber Spaniel, GCH CH Clussexx Collaboration with Traddles, the Harrier, GCH CH Downhome Hitech Innovator, the Bernese Mountain Dog, GCH CH Loriendells Sword Of Elendil, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, GCH CH Miletree Northern Star at Shirmont, or the Bulldog, GCH CH E Clive´s Witchful Thinking.

Sunday Edd Bivin would see it the other way round, choosing Sky over Swagger.  Rounding out his final were the Irish Water Spaniel, GCH CH E Clive´s Witchful Thinking, the above named Harrier, the Akita, GCH CH Ruthdale's Candy From A Baby, the Blenheim & Prince Charles English Toy Spaniel, GCH CH Loujon Backroads to Paris, and the Bulldog, GCH CH Imperious Hamitup Double Vision.

It was the ninth BIS in 28 final appearances for Sky, the nation’s Number One Dog All Breeds.

Sunday BIS judge Sulie Greendale-Paveza would put Swagger back on top and give the runner up spot to the Borzoi, GCH CH  Majenkir Bookstor Vintage Glamour.  On hand for the occasion were the German Wirehaired Pointer, GCH CH Mountain View National Acclaim, the Doberman Pinscher, CH Raklyn's Talbot of Alisaton, the Norwich Terrier, CH Winsome's Aston Martin, the Affenpinscher, CH Tamrin Tarheel, and the Keeshond, GCH CH Summerwind's Rumor Has It.

The BIS wins were the first of the season for Swagger whose 2013 resume also includes two RBIS, including the first ever awarded by the Westminster Kennel Club, and three Herding Groups.  Not bad for three weeks’ work.  Our congratulations to breeder/owner/handler Colton Johnson and breeder/owner Heather Johnson.
