The Portuguese Water Dog, GCH CH Claircreek’s Impression de Matisse, surfaced in Huntington WV yesterday, taking the top award at the Magic Valley Kennel Club’s day one show. It’s the third venue this week for the nation’s Number Two Dog All Breeds, who was in Topeka KS on Thursday and Chagrin Falls OH on Friday.

Also competing for Keke Kahn’s attention were the Weimaraner, GCH CH Doc's Crosswinds Absolut Ten Of Acadia, the Rhodesian Ridgeback, GCH CH Raquel Welch Of Malabo APD, her RBIS, the Kerry Blue Terrier, GCH CH True Blue Madonna, the GCH CH Matriart LG Muffin, the Lowchen, CH Paceaway Play It Again, and the Bearded Collie, GCH CH Ha’Penny Mirimar The Fab Fawn.
Matisse’s 55th BIS of the year gives him a 11 show lead in the race for Show Dog of the Year. However, at 184 points the win will do little to reduce the almost 8,000 point lead in the traditional rankings held by the Number One Dog, the Wire Fox Terrier, GCH CH AfterAll Painting the Sky.
