Best was the Gordon Setter, Teddy, Reserve the Bouvier, Blue. Teddy was a precocious youngster, winning the 2011 national specialty of the Gordon Setter Club of America. However, Gordon Setters are the heaviest of the Setters and tend to just get better with age. It’s the second BIS of the year for Teddy and handler Mary Grill in six final appearances this year.
