GCH CH Shine’s Deck the Halls
They started on Thursday in New Castle with the Laurel Highlands Kennel Association show. Day one ended with judge Douglas Johnson looking over the Irish Water Spaniel, GCH CH Whistlestop’s Riley on Fire, the Greyhound, GCH CH GrandCru Phelps Insignia, the Newfoundland, GCH CH Rosewood’s Royal Flush, the Welsh Terrier, GCH CH Shaireab’s Bayleigh Maid of Honor, the Pug, GCH CH Hill Country, the Chinese Shar-Pei, GCH CH Shine’s Deck the Halls, and the Shetland Sheepdog, GCH CH Jesstar Nirvana.
It was the little guy, the Pug, JJ, grabbing the big rosette, while the Shar-Pei, Tinsel, picked up the Reserve ribbon. JJ is the Number Two Toy Dog and the Number Nine Dog All Breeds with seven BIS this year.

Yesterday it was judge Jeffrey Bazell in the final ring for the Trumbull County Kennel Club. His seven hopefuls were the above named IWS, the Bloodhound, GCH CH Flessner’s International S’Cess, the Doberman Pinscher, GCH CH Tiburon Ariel Bella Donna, the same Welsh Terrier, Jennie, the Pug, GCH CH Caper’s Sirius Endeavor, the Shar-Pei, Tinsel, and the German Shepherd Dog, GCH CH Wolf Creek Galaxy of Merivern.
The second time around was lovelier for Tinsel, the Shar-Pei, as she collect the Best In Show. Reserve went to the IWS, Riley. Tinsel has been enjoying herself this year picking up three BIS and 12 Non-Sporting Groups. This one will make her the Number One Shar-Pei in the US.
