The next two days belonged to the GWP, Oakley, as he picked up the BACK2BACK wins. On Friday, Oakley impressed Johan Becerra-Hernandez more than did the Afghan Hound, GCH CH Tells Matrix Reloaded, the aforementioned Schnauzer (his Reserve), Wire Fox, or MinPin, the Dalmatian, GCH CH Spotlight’s Ruffian, or the Briard, CH Majestique Brave Heart.
