GCH CH J’Cobe Kemosabe Vigilante Justice

We always like to ring in the New Year with a bang and we couldn’t have asked for a more thrilling end to the year that the down to the wire rankings race.  For most of the year the Smooth Fox Terrier, GCH CH J’Cobe Kemosabe Vigilante Justice, led the field, though he was constantly challenged by the Number Two Dog, the Pekingese, GCH CH PalaceGarden Malachy, and the Number Three Dog, the Irish Setter, GCH CH Shadagee Caught Red Handed.  By November, the Smooth & Peke had pulled ahead of the field.

Weekend after weekend the Peke, Malachy, would come within one win of overtaking the Smooth, Dodger, only to have Dodger answer with another BIS.  However, on November 20th Malachy would grab the top prize at the big Lima Kennel Club show in Columbus OH and take the Number One ranking.  It was beginning to look like the determined little Peke would remain there for the duration of the year.  However, there is nothing like Terrier Tenacity and Dodger and owner/handler Amy Booth would doggedly pursue Malachy until they finally regained the top spot on December 18th  with a huge win at the Richland County Kennel Club show in Cleveland OH.  He would double down the next day taking the BIS at the Western Reserve Kennel Club show.  It all came down to the last week of the year and the Final Four shows in San Mateo CA.  Malachy fired the opening salvo on the 28th with a BIS at the Oakland Kennel Club show.  However the Peke’s valiant final rally would fail and Dodger would finish at the head of the line for 2010.

Dodger first caught our eye in January of 2009 when he went three for four in Florida against the 2009 Crufts winner, the Sealyham Terrier, CH Efbe’s Hidalgo At Goodspice.  We immediately made him a DOG2WATCH.  He has since gone on to become the winningest Smooth Fox Terrier in history, winning 105 all breed BIS including 74 this year alone.  Dodger was bred by William Dalling & Stacy Turner, is owned by Sandra & Howard Hoffen & Phil & Amy Booth.  Our congratulations to them all on a splendid campaign and career.  We also offer out sincere thanks to Team Dodger for providing us with one of the most exciting years in recent history.
