CH Dv9k9's Red Hot Star
We love Reno NV. When we lived in Northern California we made regular runs to Reno to gamble, see the shows, and enjoy the wild mountain landscape. This weekend fanciers got a chance to visit Reno for the hometown kennel club’s two shows.
On Saturday Dr Albert Bianchi chose his top two from a seven that included the English Setter, GCH CH Sagebrush's Simply Irresistible, a Whippet from the classes, Starline’s Walk of Fame, the Great Pyrenees, CH Framboise Something Ventured Something Gained, Border Terrier, GCH CH McHill's HRH Prince Gizmo House Of Gremlin, Pomeranian, GCH CH CR Chase What Matters, the Finnish Spitz, CH Dv9k9's Red Hot Star, and the Puli, CH Prydain Oscar's Wilde Child.
Taking home the top prize was the Spitz, Rocket. Collecting the Reserve award was the Border Terrier, Gizmo. It’s the first BIS this year by a Finnish Spitz and the first Non-Sporting Group For Rocket. Congratulations to breeders Michelle & Stephanie Leathers and owners April Bruce & Erika David.

Judge Peggy Beisel-McIlwaine’s BIS was the Pom, Chase, and her RBIS, Rocket, the Spitz. We haven’t seen a lot of Chase this year, but he still has managed to collect two BIS and 21 Toy Groups in 2013.
