GCH CH Banbury Bedrock Bright Star Bright
While there were four and even five day clusters this past week, there were some of the traditional, more leisurely two day offerings. The Tonawanda Valley Kennel Club was in the upstate New York town of Albion, just west of Rochester.
Saturday’s final was in the hands of judge David Alexander who chose his top two from the Irish Setter, GCH CH Evergreen Good Intentions, the Scottish Terrier, GCH CH Gayleward’s Star Caerwicce, the Siberian Husky, GCH CH Davik’s Snowstorm Gussit, the Colored Bull Terrier, GCH CH Banbury Bedrock Bright Star Bright, the Shih Tzu, GCH CH Jianzhuang-De Get Back Jo Jo, the Chinese Shar-Pei, Tzo Wen N Xiao Mais Rhythm Of Rio, and the Bearded Collie, GCH CH Dunhill Steeler Nation.
Best went to the Bull Terrier and Reserve went to the Shar-Pei puppy bitch. It was the third BIS of the year and second in the last month for the Bull Terrier, Yum Yum, and breeder/owner/handler Mary Remer.
GCH CH Weymouth’s En Fuego
Yum Yum would be the only one of Saturday’s finalists to return to the final ring on Sunday. Joining him in judge Gloria Geringer’s ring were the English Setter, GCH CH Weymouth’s En Fuego, the Saluki, GCH CH Sandstorm It’s All About The Bling! JC, the Bernese Mountain Dog, GCH CH Honeoye Arundel’s Arm Candy, the Ruby English Toy Spaniel, GCH CH Sirius The Red Saint, the Keeshond, GCH CH Thistledown Chautauqua Lace, and the Cardigan Welsh Corgi, CH Roragyn’s Susy Snapdragon.
Yum Yum would take the RBIS on Sunday, but the BIS would go to the Setter, Blaze. Blaze is the Number Four Sporting Dog with ten BIS this year.
