We have been sidelined for the last ten days with an as yet unidentified winter bug, but we are now back and find the 2015 show season in full bloom. Palm Springs is in the record books, the Florida Marathon has passed the mid-way point, and Portland’s Rose City Classic is underway. Down in Florida, the 2014 AKC/Eukanuba National Champion, the Skye Terrier, GCH CH Cragsmoor Good Time Charlie, is basking in the glow, and making most of the giant point haul available in Brookville FL, taking five of the seven BIS offered up so far. The latest win came at Wednesday’s Manatee Kennel Club show.
GCH CH Mephisto’s Speak of the Devil
