Grand Junction CO was one of only two sites offering four shows this week. As we told you earlier, the Old English Sheepdog, GCH CH Bugaboo’s Picture Perfect, took the BIS at Thursday’s and Friday’s shows.
Saturday Swagger would do it all over again, convincing judge Helen Haas to give him his third consecutive big rosette. Judge Haas also liked the Clumber Spaniel, GCH CH Clussexx Collaboration with Traddles, whom she gave the Reserve ribbon. Rounding out the final were the Harrier, GCH CH Downhome Hitech Innovator, the Akita, CH Redwitch Adrenaline Junkie, the Standard Manchester Terrier, GCH CH Oasis Razzmatazz, the Affenpinscher, GCH CH Tamarin Tarheel, and the Lhasa Apso, CH Sundancer Hylan Shotru Secret Dawn.
Sunday Swagger would plead his case with BIS judge James Ham. Providing the competition were the Brittany, GCH CH Rainbow Splash's Ruggedly Handsome, the previously seen Harrier, Chet, another Akita, GCH CH Stardust's See You At The Show, the Bedlington Terrier, GCH CH First Class Willow Wind The Phoenix, the Pug, GCH CH Winsome-Nirvana-Blaque Triple Play, and the Bulldog, GCH CH Newcomb's Pandamonium @ Beda.
Judge Ham would choose the Bulldog, Panda, as his Best and the Pug, Slugger. It’s the second BIS in 14 final appearances for Panda and handler Jay Serion.
