Pointer, Holly, Captures Best in Show at the 2008 National Dog Show

The 2008 National Dog Show Champion Is . . .

Oh, by golly, it's a holly jolly dog show this year! That's right, I'm not just caught up in Holiday mania, but the winner of the 2008 National Dog Show was this pretty Pointer, Holly. Her official show name: Champion Cookieland Seasyde Hollyberry!

The three-year-old pup hails from Marstons Mills, Mass. and took home the big title on the event which aired on Thanksgiving Day, adding to 95 Best In Show awards won since Sept. 2007. I'm thinking she's one to watch once Westminster rolls around in February . . . especially with that second place group finish in 2008.

I think Holly deserved to win. She is a gorgeous dog!! There were lots of great dogs I would also have been happy to see take the prize, but Holly was a good pick in my opinion.

Not one of the dogs I liked won! I liked the Bulldog that had the tiger patches on him. :(
