No dog dominated it’s group last year like the Wire Fox Terrier, GCH CH AfterAll Painting the Sky, who won 98 of 108 groups last year. Her record this year is even more impressive as she has won 19 out of 19. Although she did not join the 2012 campaign until after Westminster, she won 39 BIS and climbed all the way to a Number Four All Breeds ranking. She storms into New York with those 19 straight groups and five BIS this year.
We have been impressed with the Miniature Schnauzer, GCH CH Allaruth Just Kidding V Sole Baye, since we first saw him in Sacramento in April. Justin was 2012’s Number Four Terrier with 11 BIS and 58 Terrier Groups. Justin has one BIS, one RBIS, and seven Group Ones so far this year.
The Russell Terrier did not join the fray until late June and by July, GCH CH Goldsands Columbus had collected the breed’s first BIS. By the end of the year Bosse would accumulate three more BIS and 28 Terrier Groups and the Number Ten Terrier title. He has continued setting breed records this year with two BIS, two RBIS, and seven Group Ones. We think this guy will make the breed’s first appearance at the Garden count.
We nominate the Border Terrier, GCH CH Meadowlake’s Simply Sinful, as our dark horse of 2013. Maya was 2012’s Number Six Terrier with four BIS and 53 Terrier Groups. While some of the flashier Terriers have been gathering all the attention early in the season, Maya has quietly collected two BIS and eight Terrier Groups.
