GCH CH Dynasty's BR Donald Rockfeller
As we mentioned here earlier, this past weekend was one of the slower we have seen in a while. The good news is that gives me time to talk about the Heart of America Scottish Terrier Club specialty held this past Friday at Purina Farms in Gray Summit MO. While we spend most of our time talking about the big all-breed competitions, the real essence of our sport are the specialties. It is not uncommon to hear a first time visitor to an AKC show remark on how different a particular breed looks in the show ring from the specimen the spectators sees at his local dog park. What is overlooked is that standing next to the first timer is often a person who has dedicated 50 years to a breed wondering how the dog in the group line up ever made it out of the breed.
Judge Robert Paust’s chose as his Best Of Breed the four year old dog, GCH CH Dynasty's BR Donald Rockfeller. His Best of Opposite Sex was the GCH CH Sodak Vanguard's Tira Bella, owned by Marilyn & Gerald Cathcart. Additional awards went to GCH CH Anstamm Sodak Go West Young Man (Select Dog), CH Oban's Tale of the Dragon (Select Bitch), and GCH CH Cumbria's Ready Jet Go (Award Of Merit). Class awards went to Winners Dog, Talisman Dance With the Devil, and Winners Bitch & Best Of Winners, Anstamm Ben Scott Vamp of Savannah.
Breed winner, TRUCK, was bred by Jerson Valle & Mario Duarte, and is owned by Rebecca Cross and Danica Burge, who piloted Truck to the win. Congratulations to them all.
