Earth dog Halloween Spooktacular Oct 28/29, 2018

Greetings Earthdoggers—

The Border Terrier Club of Southern California is relieved to announce that our annual Annual Earthdog Test and Halloween Spooktacular WILL be held this year on Oct.27 & 28 at CANYON RV PARK in Anaheim, CA.

The den sites will be relocated to a new location out of the environmentally sensitive zones, but close enough to the parking area that we still be able to hold the other activities of our Spooktacular in their usual spots.

Please join us in thanking Dennis Broderick, Anne Dove, Carol Hamilton, Steve and Cheryl Shultz, and our own John Ruege who investigated potential sites and eventually worked out an agreement with the people at Canyon RV so that we could hold our event at the RV park this year.

Hope to see you there—

–Alan Izumi

Recap of BTCSC Specialty

The weather was lovely and so were the dogs. There was morning coffee and pastries before judging. Following the judging, there was a luncheon for all Border Terrier friends and competitors.

Although we had a small entry this year and there were a number of absentees, the dogs and their people had a great time. Best of Breed went to GCH Mchill’s Hat Trick. WB, BOW, BOS was Meerly Smash Talk. WD was Bohunt Paw Me Another and RWD went to Greley’s Gimme Shelter @ Aldawn. Selects were Ch. Rangel Fizzing Wizzbees and Ch. Ott To Be Rockin’ the Louboutins. Best Otter Head was awarded to Ch. Bannerkin’s Rainmaker.

Puppy Sweepstakes winners were Best to Lndi’s Strong Tower and Best Opp to Lndi’s Eye of the Storm. Best Veteran was GCH Lndi’s Ricki Lake.

Congratulations to all the winners!
