Before we move on to our next show report, we have one back story to share.  The Terrier Group at Saturday’s Gloucester County Kennel Club show turned out to be a showcase for owners/handlers, the cornerstone of AKC dog shows, with all four placements going to owner handled dogs. 

The Group One went to a Staffordshire Bull Terrier, CH Thunder Bays Mister Prime Time, bred, owned & handled by Ann Lettis, Group Two was the Bedlington Terrier, CH Peremi Roll The Dyce, bred, owned, & handled by Joan Weiskopf, Group Three taken by the Skye Terrier, GCH CH Gleanntan ComeFlyWithMe bred, owned, & handled by Michael Pesare, and the Group Four, won by the Lakeland Terrier, CH Thor-Kourt Tweetbt Tyrakeag, owned and handled by Fernando Salas.

Moss Bow Foley recently did an analysis of their shows and found that two thirds of all the breed wins were by owner handlers.   Days like Saturday in New Jersey are an inspiration to all of us that take the family dog to their local shows for a day of fun with friends.  Our congratulations to Ann, Joan, Michael, & Fernando.  You did us proud!
