The Shih Tzu, GCH CH Hallmark Jolei Rocket Power, is one of this year’s great stories. In a year full of outstanding performances, it is hard to get noticed. However, no one can ignore the accomplishments of Rocket and breeder/owner/handler Luke Ehricht.
Rocket was judge Patricia Hess’ Best In Show at Sunday’s Del-Otse-Nango Kennel Club show in Bainbridge NY. Judge Hess also considered the Wirehaired Pointing Griffon, GCH CH Fireside's Riding High ,SH,CGC, the Basenji, GCH CH Akuaba N Eldorado Bungle In The Jungle, the Newfoundland, GCH CH Cypress Bay's Big Sur, the Kerry Blue Terrier, GCH CH Class Act By Hallsblu, her RBIS, the Standard Poodle, GCH CH Unique Diamond In The Ruff, and the Australian Shepherd, GCH CH Collinswood Sparks Fly.
Rocket has ten BIS this month, including three hat tricks in three weekends, bringing his 2014 record to 12 BIS and 29 Toy Groups. In a year when the record for the Number of BIS by a Toy Dog was broken, we have seen one of the most fierce competitions for Number One Toy Dog. Check with us mid-week for this weekend’s standings.
