Thank you to Judge Mr. Luc Boileau for awarding our young Rose Best of Breed at Silver Bay Kennel Club on Feb. 25, 2012. Entry was 15 Wolfhounds, including 5 champions. 
Rose is forging ahead toward her Grand Championship title; in just two show weekends she has now amassed 16 points, including four majors. All were wins over other champions.
