Get Your Greeley On! Day Two

8:00 AM

GCH CH Jbrwoki’s A Canterbury Tail

I am starting my day with 32 15-inch Beagles, one of our most recognizable breeds. The Greeley Kennel Club’s all-breed show and its accompanying limited-breed show & specialties have drawn entries from all over the US. However, today Clay Coady’s Best Of Breed would be a local dog, from the Veteran class, 11-year-old GCH CH Jbrwoki’s A Canterbury Tail.

9:00 AM

GCH CH Coventry Allure at Wyndstar

My next stop was Lydia Hutchinson’s ring to see the 46 Pembroke Welsh Corgis, including, eight Specials & two Veterans. Not surprisingly, the breed winner was yesterday’s BIS winner, GCH CH Coventry Allure at Wyndstar.

10:00 AM

GCH CH Dreamland’s Wanna Be a Billionaire

I’m sitting at Raymond Filburn’s ring to see his 10 Chow Chows. Is there anything as cute as a Chow puppy? The adults I’ve seen today are pretty impressive, including two smooth coats. The one that impressed judge Filburn was yesterday’s Non-Sporting Group winner, the rough coat, GCH CH Dreamland’s Wanna Be a Billionaire.

11:30 AM

CH Kimik’s Sir Gawain

Someone advised me to check out the Tibetan Terriers while in Colorado because the locals really brought out some nice dogs. I spent a pleasant hour talking to some of them and learned a lot. I’m not sure I believe the part about never wrapping the coat, that it just grows that way. Nonetheless, every dog I saw was presented in immaculate condition. Judge Robert Schreve’s Best Of Breed was not a local dog, but CH Kimik’s Sir Gawain, who is currently residing in Texas.

2:30 PM

GCH CH Gallant Majestic Shaken Not Stirred

If you read my post, My Fantasy Campaign, you know I have a soft spot for an English Cocker Spaniel. I stopped by to see Sherrie Berklin Morgan’s 28 English Cockers. Unfortunately, the judging was delayed because Ms. Morgan was, like many of us flat-landers, adversely affected by the altitude and got a late start. Since I first began showing, I have admired how fit so many of our judges are. Judging all day can be pretty hard. Happily, Ms. Morgan rebounded, and I did get to watch a portion of the judging. I’ll let you know who the breed winner was at Group time. (Ms. Morgan’s BOB was GCH CH Gallant Majestic Shaken Not Stirred, who went on to take a Sporting Group Four.)
