Once again while we were awaiting some all breed show results, a thoughtful reader provided us with this. Yesterday at the Willamette Valley St. Bernard Club specialty Donna Buxton tapped CH Alta Visa’s Billion Kilowatt as her BISS. Kilo, who weighs a few kilos, was the number one Saint in 2008 and is the number one Saint so far this year. Kilo was piloted to the win by Erin Hines.
Erin is an associate of Saint Bernard specialist Billy Buell, Billy missed Kilo’s win as he spent most of Friday undergoing back surgery. He awoke to find Kilo had won another Specialty. We wish Billy a speedy recovery annd offer our congratulations to breeders Thomas & Viola Brown and Skee & Shirly Tsagris, Robert A. Bonito, Esq, co-owner of Kilo with the Browns, and handler Erin Hines. You did know that our first time in the ring was with the family’s pet Saint?
