The UKC closed Thursday with Pat Trotter in the final ring with the English Springer Spaniel, GCH CH Wynmoor Champagne Supernova, the Borzoi, Majenkir Bookstor Vintage Glamour, the Doberman Pinscher, GCH CH Caryola's Antigua, the Miniature Schnauzer, GCH CH Allaruth Just Kidding V Sole Baye, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, GCH CH Quail Garden Loch Lomond Déjà vu, the American Eskimo Dog, GCH CH Silveroaks First & Foremost, and the Cardigan Welsh Corgi, GCH CH Mariel’s Harvest Moon.
Her RBIS was the Borzoi, Glamour, and her BIS was the country’s Number Two Dog All Breeds, the Springer, Peyton.

The rest of the set would belong to the 13” Beagle, GCH CH Bougain'e Naughty-N-Lovely Alvin. On Saturday Faye Strauss chose Alvin and her RBIS, the Boxer, CH Raintrees The Recruit, out of a group that included the previously seen Miniature Schnauzer, Eskimo Dog, & Bouvier, and the Pekingese, GCH CH Dunkirk Imagine That, and the Brittany, GCH CH Mich's Mt Ready Aim Fire. On Sunday Dianne Besoff would follow suit choosing Alvin and the Boxer, Danny, as her BIS & RBIS.
