GCH CH Topsfield-Sanchu Eenie Meenie Miney Moe
We don’t often get to report back2back, BIS by a Basset Hound, but we have just that report from Auburn IN where GCH CH Topsfield-Sanchu Eenie Meenie Miney Moe took both the top awards at this weekend’s Logansport Kennel Club shows.
BIS judge Robert Hutton picked Tiger out of a lineup Saturday that included the Gordon Setter, GCH CH Sastya's Eleven Eleven the Newfoundland, CH Numa's Cest La Vie Seabrook, his RBIS, the Border Terrier, GCH CH Meadowlake Simply Sinful, the Maltese, GCH CH Scylla’s Small Kraft Re-Lit, the Chinese Shar-Pei, GCH CH Sine’s Deck The Hall, and the Finnish Lapphund, CH Yutoris Shades of Autumn.

Sunday Delores Burkholder would choose the same Top Two over the same Gordon Setter & Maltese, the Rottweiler, Avatar Cosmic Storm, the Bichon Frise, GCH CH Vogelflight’s “Honor” to Pillowtalk, and the Polish Lowland Sheepdog, GCH CH Ponwood's Smoky.
Tiger has been the nation’s top Basset Hound in all breed competition for the last two years. Tiger and handler Brian Martin had eight BIS in 48 final appearances. This year Tiger has maintained a high profile with nine Hound Group top prizes and a Group Two at February’s Westminster Kennel Club show. However, these are the first BIS of the year for Tiger and Brian. We think it’s about time. Congratulations to Brian, breeder/owner Dr Claudia Orlandi, and owner Claire Steidel.
