 They finished as they did the day before, with the Corgi, Allie, as Best, and the Wire Fox, Sky, as Reserve.  The two wins are two of the biggest of Allie’s impressive career.  We will have to wait until all the results are in before we can tell you how much Allie’s tenth BIS will improve her standing. Our thanks to Kevin Rogan for providing this show report.
