We have a true Monday Morning Mop Up this morning with reports from several sites we have previously visited over the weekend. This season has been one for fresh faces and this weekend saw several dogs pick up their first BIS of the year. You can check our archives for the earlier reports.
First, the carpet baggers have left Houston for other venues and Texas natives flocked to Longview TX where the hometown Longview Kennel Club gave us two shows this weekend. It was one of those native sons, the Bulldog, GCH CH Mytoys Epic Against the Wind, who took home to Fort Worth Sunday’s BIS. Joining Ralph and breeder/owner/handler Dennis O’Connor in Jacqueline Stacy’s final were the Brittany, GCH CH Rainbow Splash’s Ruggedly Handsome, the Whippet, GCH CH Starline’s Oxford Victim Of Love, the Akita, GCH CH Stardust’s See You At The Show RN, the Smooth Fox Terrier, GCH CH Sayo’s Jai Ho, the Reserve winner, CH Maltangel Heavenly Vision, and the Australian Shepherd, GCH CH Broadways Cruisin Like Royalty Of Canyon Lake.

Judge Gerigner’s top two were the Cocker, Taylor, and the Wire Fox, Sparky. It’s the first of the year for Taylor and handler Per Ingar Rismyhr. Congratulations to breeder/owner Beate Pruitt, co-breeder Jamey Pruitt, and owner Megan Pruitt.
Out on the west coast fanciers had the option of the Lompoc Valley Kennel Club’s two shows in that Southern California town or the Hurricane Ridge Kennel Club Of Washington two shows in Sequim WA.
It was the Scottish Deerhound from Washington State, GCH CH Jaraluv’s Tarot, picking up his first BIS at Sunday’s LVKC show. Judge Jon Cole would also like the German Shorthaired Pointer, GCH CH Dogwdcreek's La Vita E Belle, for his RBIS. Rounding out the seven were the Doberman Pinscher, CH Marienburg’s Special Ops Commando, the Wire Fox Terrier, GCH CH AfterAll Painting the Sky, the Affenpinscher, GCH CH Tamarin Tarheel, the Keeshond, GCH CH Summerwind Rumor Has It, and the Pembroke Welsh Corgi, GCH CH Coventry Allure at Wyndstar.

Congratulations to breeders/owners Jana & Ray Brinlee and handler Stuart McGraw. We hope to have a photo for you soon.
GCH CH Cambria’s Kid N Play
Up in the Pacific Northwest, it was the Miniature Bull Terrier, GCH CH Cambria’s Kid N Play, taking home the Best and the Golden Retriever, GCH CH Rush Hill’s Drama’Geddon JH, picking up the Reserve award. We suppose judge Lynne Myall might have chosen the Basenji, GCH CH Jasiri-Sukari Win Tin Tin, the Doberman Pinscher, GCH CH Tiburon Arsenal, the Silky Terrier, GCH CH Tawny Mist Myan Mystic, the Chow Chow, Padow’s Too Hot To Handle, or the Cardigan Welsh Corgi, GCH CH Mariel’s Harvest Moon, but she didn’t.
