Jack’s celebrity cameo at the 2020 Beverly Hills Dog Show

Deb & Jack, CH Hollyhock Go Figure

Each year it seems celebrity newsperson Maria Menounos hunts for a Bichon Frise to play with as she does interviews at the Beverly Hills Dog Show. Last year she spotted Romeo. This year it was Jack’s turn. She is a big dog fan, and has had bichons in the past. She spent about 20 minutes with Jack in between her interviews on the red carpet. Needless to say, I’m guessing Jack was her favorite!

Here’s a video clip of Jack with celebrities Maria Menounos and Akbar Gbaja-Biamila as they cuddle with him during one of their news clips created for the show. The 2020 Beverly Hills Dog show will be televised on NBC on May 17, 2020.

Team Romeo headed to the AKC Nationals in Orlando Florida for a weekend of shows and visits with some of our extended Hollyhock family.   Pam and Dave Williams made the journey to Orlando from their home just outside of Atlanta Georgia and were instrumental in making sure we had all our equipment for the show.  They also documented our journey and took lots of the photos and videos.  We could not have done it without them!  Carrie and Dawn Abreu traveled all the way from Massachusetts with Peppermint and Jellybean and Peppermint and her owner/handler Carrie brought home the second place rosette for the Open Bitch class.  Andrea and Jamie Gardner came from Arkansas to see their youngster, CJ, make his debut in the show ring.  CJ and his handler, Jana Klein, were in town for the entire week and CJ placed better at each show he entered.  This little guy seems to like the show ring and should be a contender as he matures.  Romeo, groomed immaculately by Haemi Choi, brought home the Best Of Breed prize for the #1 Owner Handled Bichon Frise on Friday but fell short of getting a ribbon at the big show on Saturday.  With 41 bichons entered, it was still a great day watching some of the best bichons in the country.  We had a wonderful weekend with our extended families and their bichons and we hope to make this trip to Orlando an annual tradition!

Watch Romeo in Orlando, 2019 (duration 6:17).
