  1. Billy, thanks so much for including Fort St. Clair, we much appreciate it. Just wanted to add a few special details about Sunday's BIS. The BIS winner (Smooth Fox Terrier) and the RBIS (Golden Retriever) were both bred by Amy Boothe, who handled the Golden. The Smooth Fox was beautifully handled by 14-year-old Caroline Clegg (also Best Junior that day) and her exhilaration at the win was contagious! I've never seen so many people grinning so broadly after a show. Thanks again! - Larkin Vonalt, Fort St. Clair Kennel Club
