A NEW GRAND CHAMPION FOR TULLYBLOOM!

With his Best of Breed win and Grand Champion major the first day of the Lone Star State Classic dog show cluster in Dallas, Texas (December 6-9, 2012), Commander Chaos earned his Grand Champion title to end the year 2012 as GCH CH TullyBloom's Covert Commander Chaos.  Our thanks to Breeder/Judge Dr. Frederic B. Asking for this very special win at the North Texas Terrier Club show, supported by the Trinity Valley West Highland White Terrier Club.  Commander went on to take Best of Breed wins the next two days under Judges Betsy Dale and Robert Sein (making the cut in the large Terrier Group on Saturday under Judge Betsy Dale) and was Select Dog on Sunday under Judge Dr. H. Scot Kellogg.  CC missed the major she needed to complete her championship title, but not by much, taking Winners Bitch the frist day and Bred-by 1st place with Reserve wins two of the three other days.

In addition to retiring from the show ring at year-end as a new Grand Champion, Commander Chaos also managed to earn a spot of distinction as one of the Top Westie dogs (#11 bred and #18 all breed) in the country for 2012.

Commander Chaos and CC - The New Storm Chasers

Hurricane Isaac had weakened to a tropical storm with heavy rains on August 30, 2012 by the time we arrived in Monroe, Louisiana for the four-day Cotton Land Dog Show Cluster (Bayou KC and Vicksburg KC of Mississippi, August 31 – September 3, 2012).  Commander Chaos (top photo) earned points toward his Grand Champion title by winning Best of Breed the first three days under Judges Jane Roppolo, Gloria L. Geringer and Fred G. Ferris, and then took Best Opposite Sex when CC (directly above) won Best of Breed on the last day of the show under Judge Edd E. Bivin.  CC started the weekend as Reserve Winners Bitch the first day, and then pointed out with extra points by taking Winners Bitch the rest of the weekend plus Best of Breed on Monday.
