GCH CH Bugaboo’s Picture Perfect 

 Over the past six years we have brought you our Monday Morning Mop Up from a variety venues, airport lounges, hotel rooms, & even New York’s Madison Square Garden. Today we are blogging from a hospital room while we await surgery tomorrow to repair our ten year old heart bypass. We had a busy show weekend and we will strive to get in all the reports between the interruptions by doctors, nurses, and hovering family members. 

GCH CH Thaon’s Wallstreet 

We start with a report on our Number Two Dog, the Old English Sheepdog, GCH CH Bugaboo’s Picture Perfect. Swagger spent the weekend in Duluth MN where he picked up two BIS and four Herding Group Ones. Sunday Swagger was judge Gene Blake’s BIS at the Duluth Kennel Club’s closer. 

 Swagger was challenged by the Golden Retriever, CH Forever’s All Jacked Up CGC, the RBIS, the Afghan Hound, GCH CH Thaon’s Wallstreet, the Rottweiler, GCH CH Gamegard I’ll Have Another V Braeside, the Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier, GCH CH Bryr Rose Phoenix Rising, the Pomeranian, GCH CH Katella’s Pressed and Mezherd Gold, and the Standard Poodle, Safaris This Side of Paradise.  Swagger is the winningest Old English Sheepdog in history with 45 BIS and 81 Herding Groups this year alone.


  1. Hope the surgery goes well and you recover soon! Thanks for bringing us all the latest dog show news :)

  2. Billy, we all hope your heart bypass re-do is a success and that you will rebound quickly. But can we assume you won't be at the Houston shows this year? We might GUESS you won't, but we kinda know how you are about things like this.
