GCH CH Bruno Della Vecchia Roma

We have seen a lot of records fall these past few weeks.  Today we have a brand new record that, will never be equaled.  The Neapolitan Mastiff, GCH CH Bruno Della Vecchia Roma, has become the first of his breed to win an AKC all breed Best In Show.  It happened today at the St Clairsville Ohio Kennel Club show in St Clairsville OH.  On hand in Dr Ronald Spritzer’s final to witness the event were the English Cocker Spaniel, CH Nonnies Déjà Vu, the Pharaoh Hound, CH Tiara Ne-Kabu Abu Simbel Ankh, the Border Terrier, CH Meadowlake Overnight  Celebrity, a Pomeranian from the BBE class, Expression It Is What It Is , the Standard Poodle, CH Hillwood Ale Kai Walking On Air, and the Puli, CH Catsun Corinth.  Bruno is the Number One Neapolitan in the US and was the Breed Winner at the 2010 Westminster Kennel Club show and the 2009 AKC/Eukanuba National Championship National Championship.  Congratulations to breeder Thierry Jenny Paratore, owners Janice E Wolf DVM & Judd & Pam Atchley, and handler Anthony Gurrola.
