GCH Shine’s Deck the Halls
We get to our Monday Mop Up after spending much of our weekend in the hospital with our 83 year old mother.  Happily she is much better and we now are able to tell you about what’s been happening in Indianapolis and Phoenix this past weekend.

GCH CH Stargazer N Wingfield Wait Wait Don’t Tell
We continue to see breed records fall with the latest coming at Sunday’s Hoosier Kennel Club show in Indianapolis where judge Houston Clark awarded the Chinese Shar-Pei, GCH Shine’s Deck the Halls, her 21st AKC all breed Best In Show.   Joining Tinsel in the final ring were the RBIS, the English Setter, GCH CH Stargazer N Wingfield Wait Wait Don’t Tell, the Bloodhound, GCH CH Flessner’s International S’Cess, the Doberman Pinscher, GCH CH Kamterra’s Legato, the Russell Terrier, GCH CH Baylock Heart of Fire, the Brussels Griffon, GCH CH Fist Face A Penny for your Thought, and the Old English Sheepdog, GCH CH Lambluv Sultry Sensation.

Tinsel has been the Number One Chinese Shar-Pei these last two season and leads the Non-Sporting Group this year with three BIS, three RBIS and eight Group Ones.
