GCH CH Claircreek Impression de Matisse

This week our Number Two Dog All Breeds, the Portuguese Water Dog, GCH CH Claircreek Impression de Matisse, surged ahead of the Number One Dog, in total number of shows won, by collecting four BIS in two different venues.  You can read about the first two shows here.

The second two came at the Skyline Kennel Club shows in Fisherville VA.  On Saturday judge Mary Ann Alston liked Matisse better than her Reserve, the Bearded Collie, GCH CH Ha’Penny Miramar The Fab Fawn, who she liked better than the English Springer Spaniel, GCH CH Birchwood's Tropical Night Fever CGC RA, the Smooth Dachshund, GCH CH TurningPt Cass Edge, the American Staffordshire Terrier, GCH CH An Garda Deja Vu Looking At You, the Pekingese, GCH CH Yakee Easily Persuaded, and the Lowchen, GCH CH Paceaway Play It Again.

GCH CH Yakee Easily Persuaded

Sunday Mattise would be Debra Thorton’s choice over her RBIS, the previously seen Peke, Rodger, the Weimaraner, GCH CH Unity’s Bzyfeet Laverne DeFazio, the Ibizan Hound, CH Serandida Abbaio La Contessa Scalza, the Scottish Terrier, CH Invercrest Surely Why Not, and the above named Lowchen & Beardie.

Mattise now has 32 BIS in 2013, more than any other dog.  However, He still trails the Number One Dog by a substantial 13,000 points.  The good news, at least for the Portie, is he leads the Number Three Dog by5000 points.
