Another Milestone For America’s Top Poodle!
Congratulations to Danburg Management’s own London The Standard Poodle, who won his 68th Best In Show at the Blennerhassett Kennel Club in Marietta Ohio on May 20. Thank you Group and Best In Show Judge Mrs. Robert (Polly) D. Smith for this amazing recognition and honor.
London is now the top winning black standard poodle in history! What a better way to memorialize a great dog than with a bronze life sized bust. Here is the first step in its creation, that began this weekend.
But that’s not the only fine art inspired by this fine canine. We’d like to thank Sophia E. from our neighbor NCCI, who sent us this great drawing of our favorite poodle !

London takes another BIS in Saginaw Michigan.
According to http://dogshowpoop.blogspot.com
Best went to the nation’s Number One Non-Sporting Dog, the Standard Poodle, London. London is also the country’s Number Seven Dog All Breeds with 15 BIS this year, the most by any dog this season.
Dog Show Poop has London as #2 in it’s top ten rankings behind Fifi The Doberman. London finished ahead of the Doberman on in Michigan on Sunday while the Fifinator won her 12th BIS of the season Saturday. It looks like these two will be going head to head, or snout to snout all year. London loves to compete with his friend Fifi, they’re both great dogs and we look forward to many more BIS’s for both.
April 1,2001 – No Fooling – London Impresses in the Land of Cheese !
London was the big winner in Manitowoc Wisoconsin this weekend taking two more Best In Shows, running the count to 65 BIS titles ! According to Billy Wheeler at www.bestinshowdaily.com:
“The reigning AKC/Eukanuba National Champion has a habit of taking a weekend off and coming back with all his batteries charged to have a multiple BIS performance. This weekend London was in Manitowoc, WI, to pull off back-to-to-back BIS at the Packerland Kennel Club’s two shows. “

March Madness goes to the Dogs
As March Madness gets into full swing, Boca Raton’s London The Standard Poodle is in basketball-crazy Louisville Kentucky for the Louisville Kennel Club’s annual Dog Show. London is competing for his 64th “Best in Show” Title.
To put it in perspective, London’s 63 Best in Shows are equal to number of wins by Muhammad Ali (The Muhammad Ali Center is in his birthplace of Louisville) plus the seven National Championships won by the University of Kentucky. (The University of Louisville has 2 more championships) London won the prestigious AKC/Eukanuba National Championship back in December and has 12 Best In Shows already in 2012.
The event takes place from March 15th – 18th at the Kentucky Exposition Center. The Louisville Kennel Club was founded in 1886 and has been holding annual competitions since 1915. For those of you celebrating St. Patrick’s Day this weekend, remember that Kentucky produces 80% of the World’s Bourbon which is a great American alternative to Irish Whiskey. London also wants all his fans in Kentucky to know that his favorite toy is a squeaky replica of a Louisville Slugger.

What a weekend ! Back home in Florida, London won his 59th and the milestone 60th Best In Show at the Pensacola Dog Fanciers Association Event. Two days earlier he won his 58th ribbon taking Okaloosa Kennel Club BIS honors in Fort Walton Beach. You can tell from Vincent Zuniaga’s photo provided by at Dog Post Daily that London was very excited with the results ! So were his fans and his family at Danburg Management.
