This group is dominated by Boxers, who claim four of the top ten spots in the current group rankings, but I’m going to go out on a limb and choose a dog of another breed as the group winner.
1 – GCH CH Topaz T.R.O.U.B.L.E. – A Siberian Husky ranked 16th in the Working Group at the end of 2010. “Travis” recently took 2nd place in the Working Group at the Mississippi State Kennel Club show last December.
2 – GCH CH Skansen’s Sir August Briggs – A Giant Schnauzer ranked 12th in the Working Group at the end of 2010. In his most recent show, this regal dog took 2nd place in the Working Group at the Rubber City Kennel Club show in January.
3 – GCH CH Winfall Brookwood Styled Dream – A Boxer ranked 1st in the Working Group at the end of 2010. “Scarlett” took Best of Breed at Westminster 2009. Wonder if she knows “Rhett”, my pick for the Sporting Group winner?
4 – GCH CH Pepper Tree Zorro V Morgenwald – A Standard Schnauzer ranked 11th in the Working Group at the end of 2010. “Zorro” took Best of Breed at the 2009 AKC/Eukanuba National Championships.
Tomorrow, I’ll post my picks for Best in Show. Assuming my top picks from each group win, here are the contestants for Best in Show:
- GCH CH Kridler’s Nutmeg V. Signature: A German Shepherd representing the Herding Group
- GCH CH Torquay Midnight Confession: A Beagle representing the Hound Group
- GCH CH Dante Fire When Ready: A Schipperke representing the Non-Sporting Group
- GCH CH Annian’s Gone With The Wind: A Vizsla representing the Sporting Group
- GCH CH Skyscot’s Poker Chip: A Norwich Terrier representing the Terrier Group
- GCH CH Riversong’s Broadway Joe: A Pug representing the Toy Group
- GCH CH Topaz T.R.O.U.B.L.E.: A Siberian Husky representing the Working Group
Now, of course, since my picks for the breed group winners were just wild guesses, I’ll post another guess when we get the real breed group winners on Tuesday evening.
Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
