We return to the Northeast for a report from Wrightstown PA where the Greater Philadelphia Dog Fanciers Association, the Huntingdon Valley Kennel Club, and the Burlington County Kennel Club gave us three chances to see some of the country’s top dogs. The GPDFA was up first and they chose Dr Anthony DiNardo to choose a Best and Reserve from the English Springer Spaniel, GCH CH Birchwood's Tropical Night Fever RA, the Rhodesian Ridgeback, CH Raquel Welch Of Malabo APD, the Portuguese Water Dog, GCH CH Claircreek Impression de Matisse, the Norfolk Terrier, GCH CH Yarrow Venerie Ticket to Ride, the Long Goat Chihuahua, CH Bayard Yours Truly, the Keeshond, CH Showtyme's Happy Feet, and the Australian Shepherd, CH Rosevalley's Special Edition.

Her Best was the Norfolk, Rider, and her Reserve was the Puli, Fringe. The win, Rider’s second of this year, is good enough to make Rider the Number One Norfolk and the Number Six Terrier.

Roger Hartinger had the closer for the BCKC. The seven dogs that stayed to the end to see him were the previously seen Afghan and Norfolk, the Black Cocker Spaniel, GCH CH P’Gell N BLT Bonus Bucks, the Doberman Pinscher, GCH CH Sharjets Starr Catcher CD RN CGC, the Toy Poodle, Baliwick Bit of Class, the Standard Poodle, CH L’Paige Islands In The Stream, and the Smooth Collie, GCH CH Tir Na N’ Og The Legend of Banzai Maguire.
Judge Hartinger would choose Ryder & Rider, the returning Afghan & Norfolk, as his BIS & RBIS. The Afghan Ryder, has garnered three BIS this, all in the last three weekends. Sounds like people are starting to notice.
