GCH CH Folklore Celtic Crossfire Trail
We had an owner handled Irish Water Spaniel, CH Beaufield's Boundary Waters at Pooles Ide, give us back2back BIS at the Rochester Minnesota Kennel Club this weekend. Lake and owner Debbie Patterson were the ones to which Sari Tietjen pointed at Saturday’s final. Judge Tietjen also chose the Dalmatian, GCH CH Folklore Celtic Crossfire Trail, as her Reserve Best In Show. Rounding out the day one seven were the Greyhound, CH Lorricbrook Royal Picture, the Doberman Pinscher, CH Vondura's Exeleration Belle Amie, the Australian Terrier, GCH CH Dunham Lake Scout Master, the Shih Tzu, Symarun Loves Me Tender, and the Bouvier des Flandres, CH Margaux's Takes Two To Tango.
Lake would be the only of Saturday’s finalists to make it back to see BIS judge Gale Young on Sunday. Judge Young would like Lake more than she liked the Pug, GCH CH Moonstruck’s In The Pocket!, whom she liked more than the English Foxhound, Tallis Au Birchwood Tamsall, the Newfoundland, CH Castanefwf’s Kodiak Bear, the Miniature Schnauzer, Pride’s It Started With A Whisper, the Lhasa Apso, CH Shoyu Blowin’ My Horn At Orlane, or the Briard, GCH CH Lightning Strike El Xargall.
Lake, who is not yet two years old, showed promise early taking Winners Dog and an Award of Merit at the national specialty of the Irish water Spaniel Club of America back in April. Congratulations to Debbie, breeder/owner Bridget Kvarnlov, and owner Gregory Siner. We hope to ahve a photo of Lake for you soon.
