GCH CH Pikkanokas Lightning Bug

With the increasing number of shows with less than 400 dogs competing, many of our exhibitors have been looking for venues with bigger numbers.  On recent opportunity were the four shows two weeks ago in Cambridge MN.  The Anoka County Minnesota Kennel Club opened the set and asked judge Gloria Kerr to choose her top two.  Her options were the Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever, GCH CH Pikkanokas Lightning Bug, the Afghan Hound, GCH CH Kryslaurs Blueprint Carbon Copy SC, the Bernese Mountain Dog, Holidays Singular Sensation, the Australian Terrier, GCH CH Dunham Lakes Scout Master, the Pomeranian, GCH CH CR Chase What Matters, the Keeshond, CH KJs Hot Date, and the Pembroke Welsh Corgi, GCH CH Lismores Phantom Legacy.

The Toller, Flash, would collect his second BIS of the set at Sunday’s closer.  Joining him in Bob Schreve’s final were the Saluki, CH Blue Nile Special Keeper, the above named Bernese, the Australian Terrier, Pom, & Keeshond, and Reserve winner, the Border Collie,  GCH CH Sporting Fields Heiress Hsas.  That makes three BIS in seven final appearances this year.  All three BIS have come in the last five weeks.


  1. Kerr did not judge BIS on Thursday, it was a man from Brazil. This makes the toller, Flash the top winning Duck Toller of all time after his second BIS in Biloxi, his first came in late 2011.
