GCH CH Appassionato Jp Monamour’s Star
While last year’s top dogs were picking up awards in New York at the annual Dogs In Review Show Dogs of the Year dinner, many of this year’s hopefuls were competing today for the more than 2,000 points at the Central Indiana Kennel Club show in Indianapolis.
Judge Faye Strauss chose her top two dogs from the Golden Retriever, CH Forever’s All Jacked Up, the Saluki, GCH CH Sandstorm Blue Nile Bubbles of Jatara, the Mastiff, CH Kimmit’s Rockstar, the Russell Terrier, GCH CH Appassionato Jp Monamour’s Star, the Pug, CH Careva’s Boodelicious, Matiff, CH Kimmit's Rickstar, the Chinese Shar-Pei, GCH CH Shine’s Deck the Halls, and the Australian Shepherd, GCH CH McMatt’s Autumn Breeze.
Collecting all those points was the Russell, Tribute. Picking up the Reserve award was the country's Number One Shar-Pei, Tinsel. It’s the second BIS in three final appearances this year. Tribute is one of only two Russells to win an AKC BIS. He is likely to meet the other next week at the Westminster Kennel Club. We look forward to that moment.
