CH Sporting Fields Shameless

We also have not yet told you about the St Croix Valley Kennel Club’s two shows in Lake Elmo MN, two of the largest all breed shows this past weekend.

Better than 1400 dogs showed up for Saturday’s show.  The seven who made it to Russell McFadden’s final were the English Setter, GCH CH Stargazr’n Wingfield Time Will Tell, the Whippet, CH Sporting Fields Shameless, the Mastiff, GCH CH Willow Ridges Risky Business, the Airedale, GCH CH Joval Angel’s Whisper, the Shih Tzu, GCH CH Itsa’s Hurricane Chaser, the Lhasa Apso, GCH CH Ha-Lee Kiki-Ari Captain Morgan, and the Border Collie, GCH CH Majestic Avatar Storm Warning.

The two who came out on top were the Whippet, Brazen, and the Mastiff, Kruz.  It was Brazen’s first outing as a special.  Brazen joins a long line of Sporting Fields BIS winners.  Congratulations to breeder/owner/handler Amanda Giles, breeder/owner Debbie Butts, and owner Jane Cooney Waterhouse.

Sunday’s prize was a little smaller, but still over 1300 points.  Judge Judy Webb would  choose her top two from the German Shorthaired Pointer, CH Robin Crest Spectacular Bid, the Whippet, Brazen, the Great Dane, GCH CH Gracyn Lost Creek The Descendant Of Elan, the above named Airedale, the Pug, GCH CH Moonstruck’s In The Pocket!, the previously seen Lhasa, and the Bearded Collie, GCH CH Spiritwood’s A Dream Is A Wish.

She would go with the Beardie, Ziva, as her Best, and the Whippet, Brazen, as her Reserve.  Ziva is the daughter of GCH CH Tolkien Raintree Mister Baggins, the top winning Bearded Collie of all time.  Ziva’s first ever BIS was just last weekend in Wisconsin.  Can’t wait to see these two girls in the flesh.  Maybe in Orlando?
