Five of Saturday’s finalists were back to see BIS judge Bart Miller with the Irish Setter, GCH Herihunda's Table For One and the Wire Fox Terrier, CH Dalriada's Sir Robert Peel joining the others.  Best In Show was the Collie, Ivan, making him the winningest male Rough Collie in history with 12 all breed Best In Show.  Ivan will make a couple of more specialty appearances, but will now concentrate on passing along his top winning form to his off spring.  Congratulations to breeders Patsy Gordon & Darlene Tyler Zabelle, owners Patsy Gordon,  Dr Gerard Nash & Laurie Jeff Greer, and handler Laurie Jeff Greer
