We love it when one of our rare breeds gets a BIS. The Canaan Dog is 156th in the AKC registry and one of the best Cannan Dogs anywhere, CH Pleasant Hill Magnum Of Samara, was Paula Nykiel’s Best In Show today at the Echo Hills Kennel Club Of Ohio in Troy OH. Rounding out her final were the Weimaraner, CH Smokycity Nanis Dbl Silhouette, the Greyhound, CH Gaia Elfin Dance, the Samoyed, CH Stolicnaya, the Norwich Terrier, CH Saram Ma-Ya‘s My Sweet Valentine, the Pomeranian, CH Mountain Crest U Don’t Own Me, and the Standard Poodle, CH Jaset’s Satisfaction. We do think this was the first Herding Group One and all breed BIS this year for Mag, the 2010 Westminster Breed Winner and 2009 AKC/Eukanuba National Championship Breed Winner. Congratulations to breeder Donna Dodson, owner Pamela Stacey Rosman and handler Bruce Schultz.
