GCH CH Tells Matrix Reloaded

While most of the dog world was focused on Orlando, a sizeable group of fanciers were having a great time in Allentown PA where the Lehigh Valley Kennel Club & the Delaware Water Gap Kennel Club offered up a weekend alternative.  One of our Top Dogs made the most of it.  The nation’s Number Three Hound, the Afghan Hound, GCH CH Tells Matrix Reloaded, took both of the BIS awards.

At Saturday’s LVKC, Matrix and handler Christian Manelopoulos, were joined in judge  Lorraine Bisso’s final by the Reserve Winner, the English Springer Spaniel, GCH CH Cerise Sentinel, the Samoyed, GCH CH Pebbles Run Cot'N Pic'N Cotton Gin, the American Staffordshire Terrier, CH LBK’s Night Ryder, the Havanese, GCH CH Viva’s Angus Khan, the Bichon Frise, GCH CH Vogelflight’s “Honor” to Pillowtalk, and the Briard, GCH CH Deja Vu Mia Cool as a Cucumber.
