GCH CH Sandpiper’s Let Freedom Ring
While Portland may have drawn the largest entry, “Winterfest” provided the week’s most beautiful venue, Seaside Park in Ventura CA. Judge Debbie Campbell-Freeman chose the Golden Retriever, GCH CH Sandpiper’s Let Freedom Ring, as the Los Encinos Kennel Club’s Best In Show and the Pembroke Welsh Corgi, GCH CH Coventry Fly Me To The Moon, as the Reserve.
Rounding out the final seven were the Basenji, GCH CH Jasiri-Sukari Win Tin Tin, the Bernese Mountain Dog, GCH CH Alpenspirit Its Our Game, the Miniature Bull Terrier, GCH CH Dytona VIP, the Maltese, GCH CH Scylla Small Kraft Re-Lit, and the Miniature Poodle, GCH CH Durandel Bella Donna. It was the first BIS for the Golden, Freedom. Congratulations to breeder Patty Pace, owner Toyomi Tsumura, and handler Tara Schultz.
