His Best was the Afghan, Wally, and his reserve was the Sheltie, Satoshi.  We haven’t heard much  from Wally since February of last year  when he picked up a BIS in Indianapolis.  The KCKC win is his first of 2013. Congratulations to breeders/owners Jay Hafford & James Blanchard, and owners Debbie Rogers & JW Rogers.

GCH CH Allaruth Just Kidding V Sole Baye

The Sheltie, Satoshi, would be the only of Saturday’s finalists to make it back to Patti Widick Neale’s BIS ring.  He was joined by the Golden Retriever, CH Quailwood's Outta The Park Grand Slam, the Whippet, GCH CH Fanfare's Cordova At Runners, the Boxer, CH Daybreaks Bad Influence, the Miniature Schnauzer, GCH CH Allaruth Just Kidding V Sole Baye, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, GCH CH Quail Garden Loch Lomond Déjà vu, and the Standard Poodle, GCH CH Brighton Lakeridge Encore.

And it would be Satoshi taking home the big rosette.  The Schnauzer, Justin, picked up the Reserve.  Satoshi has showed great promise since winning back2back BIS in Portland in January.  This was his fourth BIS this season.
