Today’s Mid-Kentucky Kennel Club show opened the sport’s biggest weekend, the Kentuckiana Cluster in Louisville KY. With almost 2700 dogs entered, the show drew many of the nation’s top dogs.
However, only two of judge James Noe‘s finalists are currently in the Top 50 dogs all breeds, testament to the fierce competition at the breed and group level. The seven that made it through were the Irish Setter, CH Militza’s My Cherie Amour, 15” Beagle, CH Tashtins Lookin For Trouble, the Alaskan Malamute, GCH CH Peace River Silverice Summer Solstice, the Smooth Fox Terrier, GCH CH J'Cobe Broxden Shark Dressed Man, Pug GCH Caper's Sirius Endeavor, the Chinese Shar-Pei, GCH CH Shine's Deck The Halls, and the Old English Sheepdog, GCH Bugaboo's CH Picture Perfect.
The dog getting all those points was the OES, Swagger. The dog getting the Reserve award and the photo op was the Beagle, Miss P. Is Swagger’s 12th BIS of the year big enough to make him the Number One Dog in the US? We will have to wait to hear the rest of today’s results before we can tell you.
