GCH CH AfterAll Painting the Sky
For two sites here in the US, the dog show weekend extended into Monday and both featured back2back performances. First in Pueblo CO, the nation’s Number One Dog, the Wire Fox Terrier, GCH CH AfterAll Painting the Sky, ended her five day work week with three BIS. The last two came at the Sunday and Monday shows of the Colorado Springs Kennel Club.
GCH CH Bugaboo’s Picture Perfect
Sunday’s final was called by judge Houston Clark who considered the English Springer Spaniel, CH Killara Ono! The British Are Coming CA, the 15” Beagle, GCH CH Skyline N Magnolia’s Road Trip, the Portuguese Water Dog, CH Aspencoves Nothing Like This Majik, the Pug, GCH CH Bookmark’s Uncommonly Good, the Keeshond, GCH CH Spektacles’ Feast For The Eyes, and the Old English Sheepdog, GCH CH Bugaboo’s Picture Perfect, before naming Sky his Best In Show and the OES, Swagger, his Reserve.
Monday judge Cindy Vogels would see it the same way, naming Sky BIS and Swagger RBIS, after seeing the Irish Water Spaniel, GCH CH Whistlestop’s Riley On Fire, the same PWD & Pug, and the Shiba Inu, CH Jotoichi Perfect Madness. The four wins brings Sky’s 2013 record to 75 BIS and 127 Terrier Groups. While Sky has led the field in dogs defeated for most of the year, she trails the Number Two Dog, the Portuguese Water Dog, GCH CH Claircreek’s Impression de Matisse, in the Number of BIS. Matisse finished the week with 79 BIS and 116 Working Groups.
