GCH CH Hill Country Tag I'm It
In the grand tradition frequently found in the region, the split venue, exhibitors packed up and caravanned 60 miles further away to Lebanon PA for Sunday’s Lancaster Kennel Club show. There they found judge Ann Hearn in the final ring with the Chesapeake Bay Retriever, GCH CH Chesastar Hudson Bay RN, the previously seen Foxhound, Jewel, the Doberman Pinscher, CH Alisaton Blackbird v Allure Beaulane, the Airedale, GCH CH Joval’s Angel’s whisper, the Pug, JJ, the aforementioned Mini Poodle, Laney, and the Briard, GCH CH Deja Vu Mia Cool As A Cucumber.
Redeeming his frequent traveler miles was the Pug, JJ, taking home the big rosette. The Foxhound, Jewel, would take the Reserve ribbon back home. JJ is the nation’s Number One Pug, Number Two Toy Dog, and, as we stated earlier, the Number Nine Dog All Breeds with six BIS this year.

When our home base was Brooklyn NY we looked forward to our weekends out on the Island (that’s Long Island, for those not from the area). This past weekend the spilt venue belonged to the Ladies Kennel Association of America and the Long Island Kennel Club. The LKCA opted for the show grounds in Oyster Bay NY. Friday they asked judge Gary Andersen to take the opening day final. The seven dogs asking for his consideration were the German Shorthaired Pointer, CH Starfield's Army Strong V Bulkley JH, the Bloodhound, GCH CH The Magpie's Sophisticated Lady, the Samoyed, GCH CH McMagic Mojo’s, the Miniature Schnauzer, CH Joker Land's Glacyka FCI, the Papillon, GCH CH Wildfire on the Edge, the Bulldog, GCH CH Cherokee Legend Cowboy, and the above named Briard, Dill.
Taking home the day one BIS was the Briard, Dill. RBIS went to the Sammie, Mojo. We have seen a number of beautiful Briards this Year. Dill is the Number One Briard with three BIS and 17 Herding groups this year.
