Gaining the favor of Dr Smith were the Pom, Chase, and the Elkhound, Eric.  It’s the first BIS this year for Chase.  Chase was 2012’s Number One Pomeranian and Number Eight Toy Dog, with four BIS and 38 Toy Groups.  Congratulations to breeders Robert & Celeste Solano, owner Margo Koga, and handler Noble Inglett.

Sunday judge Robert Hutton would see the same seven save two, the French Bulldog, Rockstar's Purple Haze, and the Bouvier des Flandres, Barbu Jenarae Ruffian.  The two he liked were the MiniBull, Kid, and the Akita, Candy.
