They say "Man Bites Dog" is news. In the show world it is news when our Top Two Dogs All Breeds fail to win a Best In Show. Yesterday saw our Top Two both finish behind a couple of Great Danes. The nation’s Number Two Dog, the Portuguese Water Dog, was judge Patricia Hess’ Working Group Two behind the Great Dane, GCH GHDD Seamus Lord of The Dance, at Friday’s Tidewater Kennel Club Of Virginia show in Virginia Beach VA.

Judge Stacy would go with the country’s Number Three Dog, the MinPin, Classie, as his BIS and the Irish Setter, Adele, as his RBIS. It was the 53rd BIS in 104 trips to the final ring this year for AKC’s winningest Miniature Pinscher in history.
