Ladies Win UKC Hunting Beagle National, plus Herding Dog Entries

Editor Susan Chaney reports on the historic results of this year’s United Kennel Club’s Hunting Beagle National. A female dog, owned by a woman, dominated the entry at the Cochocton County Fairgrounds in Cochocton, Ohio – Vicky Bassitt of Millersburg, Ohio and her Hunting Beagle GCh. Hurry Up Lucille. Meet the top scorers in this year’s hunt, including the winner of the Hunting Beagle National Bench Show.

The Herding Group is comprised of some of the dog world’s most beautiful working breeds, from the colorful Australian Shepherd to the rather glamorous Shetland Sheepdog. So why isn’t this collection of sheep and cattle dogs doing better in inter-group competition? Find out what Blogger-in-Chief Billy Wheeler has to say about the shortage of Herding dog entries.

Many of this year’s top show dogs are featured in their own beautiful mini-websites on Best In Show Daily. Simply click on a banner ad to see the dog’s up-to-date show history, plus a slide show of photos that reveals exactly why it’s a top dog.

Beagles Swarm Ohio Town for UKC Hunting Beagle Nationals
By Susan Chaney

Hunting Beagle enthusiasts returned to Cochocton, Ohio, in April for the fourth year to compete in and attend the United Kennel Club Hunting Beagle Nationals. Little did they know they’d be witnesses to a little bit of history too.

At the end of three days of hunting in the area of the friendly town of 12,000, two females stepped forward to receive the National Grand Hunting Beagle Champion trophy for the first time: Hunting Beagle GCh. Hurry Up Lucille, owned by Vicky Bassitt of Millersburg, Ohio. Under her son Brad’s handling, Lucille tallied up a score of 632.5+ to earn the coveted title. It’s the first time a dog, owned solely by a woman, has won the event in its 22-year history. more

Where Are the Herding Dogs?
By Billy Wheeler

This has been a year of contrasts in the show ring. On one hand we have the Top Five Dogs All Breeds that have racked up incredible numbers. On the other hand we have 63 of our Top 100 with two or fewer BIS to their credit. Last year we had two Sporting dogs atop our rankings. This year has seen our Working dogs occupy seven of the Top 20 spots. more
