Judge Hess remedied that, selecting the OES, Eric, over his more experienced competitors.  Her RBIS was the Westie, Party Boy.   Congratulations to Eric’s breeder/owner Joyce Wetzler, co-breeder Karen Burdash, and owner Joyce Wetzler.

Judge McCartha’s RBIS was the Dal, Ian, and his BIS, was the Foxhound, Jewel.  Jewel is the winningest American Foxhound in AKC history with 26 career all breed BIS, all this year.  This win will move her into the Top Ten Dogs All Breeds after weeks of sitting in the Number Eleven spot.
