We continue our weekend reports with results from Augusta NJ, the only site that had a Monday show. When we last checked on the New Jersey shows, we told you that judge Chuck Winslow chose the Norfolk Terrier, GCH CH Yarrow Venerie Ticket to Ride, as his Best In Show at Saturday’s Palisades Kennel Club show. The rest of the stop would belong to the Country’s Number One Dog all Breeds, the Portuguese Water Dog, GCH CH Claircreek’s Impression de Matisse, who would take both of the BIS at the Ramapo Kennel Club’s Sunday and Monday shows.
