Best went to the Saluki, Sammy D, and Reserve to the Sheltie, Ludo. Like the Afghans, we are lucky this year to have several BIS winning Salukis out. Sammy was lead to the win by one of the sport’s premier sighthound experts, breeder/owner Gene Blake. It was the second BIS in ten trips to the final ring this year for Sammy D.
