CH An Garda Deja Vu Looking at You

On Sunday judge Sharol Candace Way would see the same Pointer, Saluki, AmStaff, and Papillon.  Rounding out the final were the Boxer, GCH CH Winfall I Dream of Style, the Bichon Frise, GCH CH Saks Winning Card, and the Pembroke Welsh Corgi, CH Coventry Just A Little Crush.  She would like the Saluki, Ally, for her BIS and the AmStaff for her RBIS.  It’s the second BIS in 18 final appearances this year for Ally and breeder/owner/handler Gerry Thornton.


  1. When you realize that the heat index on Saturday was well over 100 degrees, it's amazing that all those coated breeds stood up so very well in the Groups and then Best in Show too!
    Of course after a cold front rolled in Sunday was downright chilly!
    Typical Texas weather - if you don't like it, wait a minute and it will change.
