GCH CH Chaparral Tour De France

When we were children we spent summers trout fishing in the streams of Wyoming.  Dog fanciers spent Memorial Day weekend fishing for points in Casper & Laramie WY.

The fun started on Friday in Casper where the Central Wyoming Kennel Club held their two shows.  Day one’s final was in the hand of judge Neil Graves.  The seven dogs he considered were the Brittany, GCH CH Rainbow Splash's Ruggedly Handsome, the Greyhound, GCH CH Chaparral Tour De France, the Siberian Husky, CH Takhari Stinkin Ice Winter Haven, the Miniature Schnauzer, GCH CH Laroh's Irish Road Warrior, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, GCH CH Miletree Northern Star at Shirmont, the Lhasa Apso, GCH CH Sundancer Hylan Shotru Secret Dawn, and the German Shepherd Dog, GCH CH Von Zecher’s Broken Arrow.
