Taking the BIS was the Doberman, Glory.  Picking up the RBIS was the Boston Terrier, Vinny.  Glory is one of the early leaders in the Working Group with two BIS, three RBIS, and seven Group Ones so far this year.

Judge Gomes would name Tanner his BIS and the Springer, Randy, RBIS.  Tanner is the first belge Affenpinscher to win a BIS since we have been writing this blog.  Tanner is the son of CH Tamarin Tug, who was the Number Three Dog All Breeds in 2008.  Congratulations to breeders Tamarin Kennels (Jackie and Terry Stacy), owners Ann & Gary Shultz, and handler Jorge Olivera.
