We are beginning out Monday Morning Mop Up with the showdown between the nation’s Top Two Dogs All Breeds. The Portuguese Water Dog, GCH CH Clair Creek’s Impression de Matisse, and the Old English Sheepdog, GCH CH Bugaboo’s Picture Perfect, met Sunday in Chicago for the fourth time this week. This time it was the OES, Swagger, walking away with the top prize.

Joining Matisse and Swagger in judge Col Joe Purkhiser’s final for the International Kennel Club of Chicago were the English Springer Spaniel, GCH CH Telltail American Ride, his RBIS, the Greyhound, GCH CH GrandCru Philips Insignia, the Smooth Fox Terrier, CH J’Cobe Broxden Shark Dressed Man, the Smooth Coat Chihuahua, CH Ouachitah One Life To Give, and the Bichon Frise, GCH CH Saks Winning Card.

Swagger returns home to Colorado with nine BIS, six RBIS, and 20 Herding Groups this year, and just a step behind the PWD, Matisse. We are so looking forward to this year!
