Finishing one/two were the Chin, Mimi, and the Setter, Kiki. Mimi is the top winning Japanese Chin of all time with 16 career all breed BIS. That is even more remarkable considering that she broke the record in just ten months. Congratulations to breeder Patricia Mushrush, and owners James Dalton, Dr John Turjoman, Marsha Ballard & N Wright, and handler Nancy Wright.
