While the individual shows down in Florida were no larger than those in Hilton Head SC, there are four this week in the panhandle.  We have results for the first three.

Fanciers were in Fort Walton Beach on Thursday and Friday with the Okaloosa Kennel Club.  Day one ended with Randy Garren considering the Pointer, GCH CH Solivia's Kalahari Of Marsuz, the 15” Beagle, GCH CH Lokavi´s Battle Flag Of The South, the Boxer, CH Hi Tech The King of Sherry Shoot Jp, the Kerry Blue Terrier, CH Irisblu Mirage, the Pug, GCH CH Hill Country's Tag I'm It, the Tibetan Spaniel, GCH CH Kan Sing Tenzin, and the Shetland Sheepdog, GCH CH Jesstar Nirvana.

Taking home the first big rosette of the set was the Pug, JJ, while the Boxer, King,  grabbed the Reserve ribbon.  It’s JJ’s second BIS this year in nine final attempts.  We love to see persistence rewarded.

The crew would break camp and move 40 miles east for the Pensacola Dog Fancier Association’s two shows.  The first, Saturday, ended with James Briley mulling over the Black Cocker Spaniel, GCH CH Tamra’s N Positively’s Over The Top, the Greyhound, CH Grandcru Caymus, the Saint Bernard, GCH CH Jamelle’s Aristocrat v Elba, the above named Kerry, MinPin, & Tibbie, and the Australian Shepherd, GCH CH Equinox The Edge Of Reason.

The two that judge Briley liked were the MinPin. Classie, and the Tibbie, Tenzin.  Classie already has nine BIS this year, making her the Number One Toy Dog and the Number Three Dog All Breeds.
