GCH CH Blackhawk Finnegan’s Wake

His RBIS was the Schnauzer, Finn, and his BIS was the Schipperke, TJ.  The win breaks the record for most BIS by a Schipperke, formely held by CH De LaMer Beach Blanket Baby.  TJ finished 2012 as the Number One Schipperke with six BIS and 45 Non-Sporting groups as well as a Group Three at last month’s AKC/Eukanuba National Championship.  Congratulations to breeder/owner Amy Gossman, co-breeder Gene Johnson, owners Amy Gossman, Michael Jameson MD, P Allsion & Sandra Middlebrooks, and handler Erin Roberts.
