GCH CH Longo Miller N Lore's Diamond Lil

After two family funerals and week long bout with the flu we begin an extended version of our Monday Morning Mop Up.  We have two weeks of BIS wins to report and statistics to compile.  We will get all the awards and photos posted in time and thank our readers for their patience.

We start with a report on the Great Dane, GCH CH Longo Miller N Lore's Diamond Lil.  The spectacular black bitch was in Mitchell NE a week ago for Scottsbluff Kennel Club’s trio of shows and in Elkton FL this weekend for the Greater Orange Park Dog Club’s two shows.   She returns home with five more BIS to her credit and the attention of all the other Top Twenty Dogs All Breeds.
