His top two were the IWS, Riley, and the Toy Poodle, Sakura. Riley is the country’s Number One Irish Water Spaniel and Number Three Sporting Dog with ten BIS this year. The question is how close is she to a Top Ten berth. Check back with us mid-week and we will tell you.
Riley and the above named Rottweiler, Standard Poodle, & Briard would all be back on Saturday to see BIS judge Ken Murray along with the Afghan Hound, CH Scaramouche Show Must Go On, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Sheaman’s Son Of A Irishman, and the Italian Greyhound, GCH CH GDM Zenyatta at Lakeridge.
Saturday Riley would play bridesmaid to the Standard Poodle, who would take the BIS. It’s the first BIS for the two year old bitch. Congratulations to breeder Cindy Rochow, owner Robert McL Smith III, and handler Kaz Hosaka.
