Toy Dogs

Three of the four Kenilworth Dog Show Toy Dogs award winners are listed in each of clues 3 and 5; the clues cannot overlap completely, or Shue and Eastman would be one person, but there must be an overlap between the clues: either Eastman trains Prince Sherman or Greta is Shue. Trying the first scenario, between clues 3 and 5, Greta's entry would have won 1st place, Eastman's Prince Sherman would have placed 2nd, Shue's animal would have won 3rd prize, and the Shih Tzu would have been 4th--with Shue's dog then being a Papillon. By clue 1, then, Jack would be Eastman--which he is not (7). So, between clues 3 and 5, Prince Sherman was judged 1st-place winner, the dog trained by Greta Shue won 2nd prize, Eastman's entry finished 3rd in the judging, and the Papillon was 4th--with Eastman training the Shih Tzu. By clue 1, Jack trains Prince Sherman. Ramona doesn't train the Papillon (6); she is Eastman and trains the Shih Tzu, and Ben trains the Papillon. Ben is Thompson and Jack Wilhelm (4). Jack's entry is a Maltese and Greta's a Brussels Griffon (4). By clue 6, neither Ben nor Ramona trains Salty Dogg, so Greta does. Ramona trains Konga Dharva and Ben Max's Moonbeam (2). The first four places in the Kenilworth Dog Show's Toy Dogs competition went to

• 1st - Prince Sherman, a Maltese trained by Jack Wilhelm
• 2nd - Salty Dogg, a Brussels Griffon trained by Greta Shue
• 3rd - Konga Darva, a Shih Tzu trained by Ramona Eastman
• 4th - Max's Moonbeam, a Papillon trained by Ben Thompson
