This Week’s Top Ten

As we get poised for another show week, I thought I would share the following chart showing the relative position of our Top Ten Dogs All Breeds. If you have been visiting Dog Show Poop (and we hope you have), you know that the Doberman Pinscher, GCH CH Protocol’s Veni Vidi Vici has had a very successful couple of weeks with four big BIS, putting FiFi in the Number One Dog spot with over 21,000 points.

However, last week’s Number One, the German Wirehaired Pointer, GCH CH Mt View’s Ripsnorter Silver Charm, is just one BIS behind. The next four dogs, the Kuvasz, GCH CH Szumeria’s Wildwood Silver Six Pence, the English Springer Spaniel, GCH CH Wynmoor Champagne Supernova, the Black Cocker Spaniel, GCH CH Casablanca’s Thrilling Seduction, & the Miniature Pinscher, GCH CH Marlex Classic Red Glare, are tightly bunched together, but will likely need three big rosettes to catch the leaders.

The next three dogs, the Affenpinscher, GCH CH Banana Joe V Tani Kazari, the Standard Poodle, GCH CH Jaset’s Satisfaction, & the Kerry Blue Terrier, GCH CH Perrisblu Kennislain’s Chelsey, are all within 200 points of one another, though almost 2,000 points behind the Number Six Dog. Rounding out the Top Ten is the English Setter, GCH CH Oakley’s B’Dazzled, who is about 2,500 points behind the Number Nine Dog.

GCH CH Windemere's Dusting Of White At Pevyne

On Friday, we will examine more in-depth the volatility of this year’s race, highlighting the dogs who have made impressive moves up the rankings in the last few weeks. But before I go, I want to mention the classic underdog, the dog that rarely gets any recognition, the country’s Number 11 Dog All Breeds. That dog is the Pekingese, GCH CH Windemere Dusting of White at Pevyne, who is a scant 500 points outside the Top Ten. And that’s today’s Back Story.
