Her Best was the Bichon, Bingo, and her Reserve was the Maltese, Ohso.    Bingo is the nation’s Number One Bichon and the Number Four Non-Sporting Dog with six BIS.

Bingo and the above named Basenji, Lakeland, Maltese, & Bouvier would return on Sunday to see judge Judy Webb.  Joining them were the Pointer, CH Chesterhope State Of T Art, and the Giant Schnauzer, GCH CH Skansen’s Harvard.  This time the RBIS would go to Bingo and the BIS would fall to the Pointer, Miley. 

The following weekend the action would move to Marshall where the Caddo Kennel Club of  Texas hosted two shows.  At Saturday’s final the Pointer, Miley, would make it two in a row.  Judge Paula Hartinger would select another Rhapsody Maltese as her Reserve, CH Rhapsody's Someone Like You.  Rounding out the final seven were the aforementioned  Saluki, GCH CH Issabaa’s Gogothegold, the Leonburger, Kalahari's Call To Attention, the Smooth Fox Terrier, GCH CH Sayo's Jai Ho, the  Chinese Shar-Pei, GCH CH Jade East Do You Know The Way To San Jose, and the Australian Shepherd, GCH CH Harmony Hill’s Money Talks.

The two wins gives Miley seven BIS on the year.  Look for her to really move up in the rankings after the summer’s big shows in Texas.

Sunday judge Robert Hall would see the Pointer, Miley, the Ibizan Hound, CH Serandida East So Bigstar, the Greater Swiss Mountain Dog, GCH CH Derby's Toast with Gusto, the West Highland White Terrier, TullyBloom's Classified Credendials, Saturday’s RBIS, the Maltese, Adele, the previously seen Shar-Pei, Jose, and the same Australian Shepherd, Cash.

He would choose the Shar-Pei, Jose, as his Best and Adele, the Maltese, as his Reserve.  Jose is the country’s Number Three Non-Sporting Dog with three big BIS.

CH Pocket's Ameci

This past weekend Texan exhibitors gathered in Denton for the hometown kennel club’s shows.  The seven dogs that made it to Alane Gomez’ final on day one were the Golden Retriever, CH Vanreel's There Goes My Money CD, the Whippet, GCH CH Starline's Oxford Victim Of Love, the Mastiff, GCH CH Willow Ridges Risky Business, the Cairn Terrier, GCH CH Dogwood’s Treasure Hunter, the Pug, CH Pocket's Ameci, the Keeshond, Ruttkay Chance, and the Cardigan Welsh Corgi, CH Riverside Telltail Coco Posh.

The two that caught judge Gomez eye were her BIS, the Pug, Ameci, and her RBIS, the Golden, Token.  It’s  the first BIS for the 22 month old dog.  Congratulations to breeder/owner Rosemary Robles, owner Jane Bale-Woodside, and handler Brooke Young.

GCH CH Involo The King Of Pop

Five of Saturday’s finalist would be joined by the Boxer, CH Breho Fortuity Shared Treasure, and the Papillon, GCH CH Involo The King Of Pop, on Sunday to plead their case with BIS judge Nelson Huber.

It would be the two newcomers who would succeed.  The Papillon, Jackson, would collect the BIS and the Boxer, Milee.  Jackson now has four BIS on his 2013 resume.
