GCH CH Downhome Hitech Innovator
As we hurdle toward the end of the year, it seems that the status quo will remain so. The Number One Dog All Breeds, the Wire Fox Terrier, GCH CH AfterAll Painting the Sky, was in Costa Mesa CA yesterday for the day two show of the Shoreline Dog Fanciers Association Of Orange County. Sky made it to judge Kathy Beliew’s final along with the Field Spaniel, GCH CH Promenade's Pay It Forward, the Harrier, GCH CH Downhome Hitech Innovator, the Boxer CH Hijinx This Is How I Roll, the Brussels Griffon, GCH CH Paragons Sharp Dressed Man At Greengate, the French Bulldog GCH CH LeBull's El Morocco At LeCirque, and the Bouviers des Flanders GCH CH Take Aim's Playing For Gryffindor.
Judge Beliew’s top two were the Harrier, Chet, and the Frenchie, Trouble. Chet is the Number Two Hound this year with 15 BIS and 69 Non-Sporting Groups.
