2008 Westminster Winners: Sporting Group

We kicked off Day Two of Westminster with the Sporting group. Made up of dogs that point the game with their noses (i.e., the pointers), flush the game out (i.e., the spaniels), and then retrieve the game (i.e., the retrievers), these pooches are bred to be busy bees. With all those spaniels in the group, it's no surprise that a couple were finalists here. Ranging from the biggest, the Clumber Spaniel, to last year's Best in Show, James (the English Springer Spaniel), they're certainly popular and both the English Cocker and the A.S.C.O.B. made the Sporting group's short list last night. Curious to learn what an A.S.C.O.B is (oh, and see who won the group), just

.

The A.S.C.O.B Cocker Spaniel stands for "any solid color other than black" and is represented by Dylan, seen at the bottom right. Neither he, nor the English Cocker (top left), captured the Sporting group title. It went to the grey ghost – Marge, the Weimaraner.

Rounding up the group placement:

  1. Weimaraner: Ch Colsidex Seabreeze Perfect Fit. Female born Sept. 3, 2003.
  2. Pointer: Ch Cookieland Seasyde Hollyberry. Female born Dec. 20, 2005.
  3. Spaniel (Cocker) A.S.C.O.B.: Ch Lydgate Rise N' Shine. Male born Jan. 2, 2005.
  4. Spaniel (English Cocker): Ch Chestnuts Selling The Drama. Male born Apr. 4, 2002.

The Weimaraner was very elegant. If Uno couldn't win I would have liked to have seen her win, or the Aussie Shepherd or the Akita.
