GCH CH Legibach Captain Crunch

This is a critical week as the dog show world prepares for next month’s Canine Super Bowl, the Westminster Kennel Club show. The largest entries were to be found in Atlanta GA where the four show Cherokee Rose Cluster had drawn nearly 8,000 dogs.  However, Mother Nature intervened with one of the coldest weeks on records, preventing many of exhibitors from reaching Atlanta.  Cluster officials decided to cancel today’s opener, the Griffin Georgia Kennel Club show, as a precaution. 

GCH CH CR-Wicca’s Trade Secret

It’s colder in Wildwood NJ, but thanks to its beachfront location, the Atlantic Ocean Cluster opened on time yesterday with the Union County Kennel Club show.   Judge Larry Berg had the day one final and his pick of the English Springer Spaniel, GCH CH Wynmoor Sweetgrass White Diamonds, the Wirehaired Dachshund, GCH CH Legibach Captain Crunch, the Akita GCH CH CR-Wicca’s Trade Secret, the Wire Fox Terrier, GCH CH Crispy Legacy, the Toy Poodle, GCH CH Smash Jp Beauty & Beat, the Schipperke, GCH CH De LaMer Point Break, and the Bearded Collie, GCH CH Ha’Penny Miramar the Fab Fawn.

His BIS was the Dachshund, Captain, and his RBIS, was the Akita, Trader.  It’s the first BIS in four final appearances this year for Captain and handler Angela Llyod.  Congratulations to breeders/owners Gina Middings & Pat Leone, and owner Sally Sweatt.
