We begin our show reports this morning with the largest show of the week, the Finger Lakes Kennel Club show, where nearly 2000 dogs gathered in Romulus NY. The seven that made it all the way to judge Diane Malenfant’s final were the Irish Water Spaniel, GCH CH Whistlestop’s Riley on Fire, the Longhaired Dachshund, GCH CH Aviance's Pramada For Terms Of Endearment SL, the Doberman Pinscher, CH Bellnhans Wannabe Irish, the Norfolk Terrier, GCH CH Yarrow Venerie Ticket to Ride, the Pekingese, GCH CH Yakee easily Persuaded, the Standard Poodle, CH Dawin Wildrose Raisin' The Stakes, and the Old English Sheepdog, CH Haystac's Bristol Breeze.
Picking up her second consecutive BIS was the IWS, Riley. Getting the Reserve was the Dachshund, Dimitri. The win, her 15th in 49 final appearances this year will likely move her back into the Top Ten All Breeds, pending today’s shows.
