GCH CH Trystn Statesman Cactus Blue

One of the nice things about this year’s campaign is the large number of unranked and first time Best In Show winners we have seen.  The Welsh Springer Spaniel, GCH CH Trystn Statesman Cactus Blue, was Dr Bob G Smith’s BIS at Saturday’s Kennesaw Kennel Club show in Marietta GA.  Dr Smith also liked the Pembroke Welsh Corgi, GCH CH Riverside Xtra Style, who he gave the RBIS.  Rounding out the day one final were the Whippet, GCH CH Karasar’s Remembrence, the Standard Schnauzer, GCH CH Blackhawk Finnegan’s Wake, the Skye Terrier, GCH CH Cragsmoor Good Time Charlie, the Pug, GCH CH Caper’s Sirius Endeavor, and the Bichon Frise, GCH CH Glenleigh Gangs N Roses.

It was the first BIS for five year old Maddux.  Congratulations to breeders/owners Meghan Bassel & Sandra Holmes, owners Susan & Spencer Doss, and handler Meghen Riese-Bassel.
