The nation’s Number Two Dog All Breeds, the Portuguese Water Dog, GCH CH Claircreek’s Impression de Matisse, made appearances in New York, Virginia, and Tennessee this week, collecting four BIS along the way. The last two came at the Greater Murfreesboro Kennel Club’s two shows in that Tennessee town.
Saturday Matisse was the choice of judge Roger Hartinger for BIS. Judge Hartinger also liked the Puli, GCH CH Cordmaker Topsy Turvey, for his RBIS. Rounding out the Saturday final were the Chesapeake Bay Retriever, GCH CH Chesastar Hudson Bay RN, the 15” Beagle, GCH CH South N Encore Caught Red Handed, the Scottish Terrier, Brookhill's Sweet Talk, the Long Coat Chihuahua, GCH CH Matriart LG Muffin, and the Tibetan Terrier, CH Rinchen's Blazing Illusion By Dzine.

Judge John Reeve-Newson would see it the same way choosing Matisse as his Best and the Puli, Charlotte, as his Reserve, while the Parti-Colored Cocker Spaniel, GCH CH Conquest's This Is It!, the Rhodesian Ridgeback, GCH CH Raquel Welch Of Malabo APD, the Smooth Fox Terrier, CH West Meade Repeat Performance, the Japanese Chin, CH Touche Mishamai Ringleader, and the Dalmatian, GCH CH Bret D Gabriel's Lost Art CD RE, watched.
Matisse would collect a little less than 3200 points for the four shows, bringing his 2013 record to 64 BIS & 98 Working Groups.
