His Best was the Foxhound, Jewel, and his Reserve was the Setter, Reign. Jewel is the country’s Number One Hound with 15 BIS to her credit.
Joyce Fortney wrapped it up for the BKC on Sunday. The seven who stayed to the end were the now familiar Irish Setter, Foxhound, the Rottweiler, Shih Tzu, Shar-Pei, & Pyrenean Shepherd, and the Wire Fox Terrier, Royal D's Freedom Works. She would favor the Shih Tzu, Willie. Once again the Irish Setter, Reign, would cop the Reserve award. It’s the first of the year for the country’s Number One Shih Tzu.
