FIVE CENTS
THE DOG SHOW
Champions Landsdowne Sunflower and
Pride's Hill Tweak 'Em Premier Winners
Over 200 Entrle From All Sections
of the Untied States and
Cauada
It was a great Dog Show and sur
passed, to be trite, the most sanguine
expectations of its most sanguine pro
moters. There were about 200 entries and
half of them were technically 'show
dogs. The entry count omits dogs en
tered for exhibition only, which later
category included Police Dog Champion
Fels, Police Dog Reserve Grand Cham
pion Bodo von Weissenberg, and a num
her of other entries equally well known.
The contest for Best in Show narrow
ed down, on the closing day, to Capt.
Quincey Adams Shaw McKean's wire
haired fox terrier Champion Pride's
Hill Tweak 'Em, and Mrs. B. F. Lewis
Jr's. equally celebrated greyhound,
Champion Lansdowne Sunflower. Tweak
'Em shaded his rival in the matter of
record, having been four times adjudged
Best in Show at Madison Square and in
London one more premier honor than
had been taken by Lansdowne Sunflow
er, if our records are correct but the
decision of the judges finally went in
favor of the Greyhound, with Tweak
'Km adjudged Best in Opposite Sex. It
is said that the two winners of the lead
ing honors will shortly meet in compe
tition again, in London, and it will be
interesting to see whether the Pinehurst
decision is confirmed or reversed at that
time As matters now stand, the two
dogs are now on an absolutely equal
footing, so far as bench show record
is concerned.
There was an exceptionally large en
try for the Pointer class, as large if
not larger than the entry at the last
Madison Square show. This class brought
out Applejack, an upstanding black
and white pointer owned by W. W.
Lindley, who won straight through from
Novice to Winners.
The Willowbrook Kennels' Willow
brook Eock, one of the best English
Setters shown in recent years, won
against a field that was as high in qual
ity as any that has been exhibited in
this country.
The Greyhound Class brought togeth
er the famous trio, Lansdowne Star,
Lansdowne Sunbeam and Lansdowne
Sunflower, and the Shepherds, better
known as Police Dogs, had also an ex
ceptionally classy entry, although the
judges lost not time in awarding Win
ners Dogs to the Lewanno's Kennels
Artus Mercedes and the Winners Bitch
es to Meta of Lewanno.
The Airedale Class wa a bit one sided
or one dogged, Champion Normanton
Tipit winning easily.
The class of the show is well il
lustrated by the fact that entries as
well known , as Norwood Johnson 's
French griffon, Homerc's Jack, and
Miss Runyon's Yorkie, Peggy, had to
content themselves with secondary hon
ors in the Miscellaneous Class.
One thing that went a long way to
wards achieving the show's big success
was the remarkable array of trophies
and prizes offered. According to the
exhibitors, the prizes, taking them all
together, were the most satisfactory
ever offered at any dog show.
