Closing the weekend were the Afghan, Ryder, with the BIS, and the four year old Siberian bitch, with the RBIS. This has been a great year for Afghans with three multi-BIS winning Afghans out. Ryder is the Number Six Hound with a breed leading 11 BIS as well as 35 Hound Groups. We like that batting average.
