Maggie Fisher
CH NorthWyn Lord Merlin's Legacy  "Logan"

Judge Bud McGivern held everyone in suspense as he picked his  final dogs for best of breed.  Every dog was examined from head to toe, stem to stern, coats, tails, shoulders, movement, etc..  He was very methodical in his examination, measuring and going over each dog with a fine tooth comb.  He lined his choices up and he moved them - switched them, sent them out two at a time and moved them again.  One could not read who was going to take breed.  He switched the breed dog and the best opposite dog only to then move up another to the front. I think he was sending a message to the crowd that he had some outstanding dogs before him.  He told exhibitors to not stop working as he had not made his final decision.  After much deliberation, he sent them around and pointed to Josh for the Breed.  Hats off to the breed exhibitors as they worked so hard for  their wins.
