Six of the finalists are multiple BIS winner. One is this year's Number One Hound.  Another has been the Number One Herding Dog for the last two years.  Yet another is the Number One Non-Sporting Dog & the 2011 AKC/Eukanuba National Champion.  A fourth was the Number One Dog All Breeds in 2011.   

It was last year’s Number One, the Cocker, Beckham taking home a record setting 109th career BIS.   He has now on 18 big rosettes this year.  Remember to check out those small shows.  You never know who will show up.
