We wonder if fanciers realize just how unusual this season is. We cannot recall when the sport’s top competitors have maintained such a high level of excellence. For the second consecutive weekend, our Top Three Dogs All Breeds have dominated the shows at their respective locations.
The Standard Poodle, GCH CH Dawin Hearts on Fire, the Number Three Dog’s weekend consisted of a pair of BIS performances at the Little Fort Kennel Club of Waukegan’s two shows on Friday and Sunday in Grayslake IL. Today’s win under judge Michael Dougherty was against the English setter, GCH CH Stargaze'R 'N Wingfield Wait Wait Don't Tell, the RBIS, the Otterhound, GCH CH Aberdeens Under The Influence, the Rottweiler, GCH CH Gamegards I'll Have Another V Braeside, the Dandie Dinmont Terrier, GCH CH King’s Mtn.
