The Cherokee Rose Cluster got underway a day late, after Thursday’s Griffin Georgia Kennel Club show was cancelled.  Friday’s Sawnee Mountain Kennel Club Of Georgia show drew almost 1900 dogs.

The seven that made it all the way to judge Robert Vandiver’s final were the English Springer Spaniel, CH Telltale American Ride, the Whippet, GCH CH Ableaim Que The Music, the Portuguese Water Dog, GCH CH Claircreek’s Impression de Matisse, the Skye Terrier, GCH CH Cragsmoor Goodtime Charlie, the Pug, GCH CH Caper’s Sirius Endeavor, the Chinese Shar-Pei, GCH CH Shine’s Deck the Halls, and the German Shepherd Dog, GCH CH Wolf Creek’s Galaxy of Merivern.

The PWD, Matisse, continues his relentless march through January, collecting another BIS.  The GSD, Galaxy, added the RBIS to his already impressive 2013 total.  Matisse, 2013’s Show Dog of the Year, now has 12 BIS, one RBIS, and a Group Two in 14 shows this year.  That’s a lot of momentum going into the Westminster Kennel Club show, now just over a week away.
