VENTURA CA, DAY ONE

GCH CH R and G’s Mystical Dancer 

 If you were to write a recipe for a perfect dog show weekend, you would mix 2000 plus dogs with perfect weather, and a pristine seaside setting, let it set for three days and you would have this weekend in Ventura CA.   

Today's Channel City Kennel Club BIS would belong to a Southern California boy, the Boxer from Riverside, GCH CH R and G’s Mystical Dancer.  While Danny would take home all those points, his Segundo, the Standard Poodle, GCH CH Brighton Lakeridge Encore, would collect fewer points than the some of the other five finalists that she beat.  They were the English Springer Spaniel, GCH CH Wynmoor Champagne Supernova, the Rhodesian Ridgeback, GCH CH Diablo's Dark Knight's Nemesis, the Wire Fox Terrier, GCH CH AfterAll Painting the Sky, the Papillon, GCH CH Involo The King Of Pop, and the Bearded Collie, GCH CH Classical's My Turn.
