GCH CH Skansen’s Holy Knight 

Thanks to the holiday weekend our show week included several locations with Monday offerings. We last checked in on Lexington KY on Friday when we told you that the Wbippet, GCH CH Sporting Fields Shameless was judge Bonnie Linnell Clarke’s BIS at the Northern Kentucky Kennel Club’s day one show.

Saturday it was the hometown Lexington Kennel Club’s turn to host and they asked judge Steven Gladstone to choose a BIS and RBIS. His options were the Black Cocker Spaniel, GCH CH Ashdown’s Time to Thrill, the Bloodhound, GCH CH Flessenr’s International S’Cess, the Giant Schanauzer, GCH CH Skansen’s Holy Knight, the Welsh Terrier, GCH CH Sahireab’s Bayleigh Maid of Honor, the Shi Tsu, GCH CH Hallmark Jolei rocket Power, the Standard Poodle, GCH CH Litliann’s Show Time, and the Cardigan Welsh Corgi, GCH CH Riverside Telltails Coco Posh. 

His Best was the Giant, Knight, and his Reserve was the Corgi, Coco. Knight has six BIS this year, three in the last month. Nothing like momentum go into the stretch.

Joining them and judge Anne Katona were the English Setter, GCH CH Stargaze'R 'N Wingfield Wait Wait Don'T Tell, the Portuguese Water Dog, GCH CH Claircreek’s Impression de Matisse, and the Puli, CH Moonshadow A League Of Her Own CD BN RA.
