When Mr. Pearson lined Cooper up behind this outstanding multi-BIS and RBIS American Pit Bull Terrier, the elkhound gallery started holding their breath!
The BIS Rosette went to Sue Phillip's APBT, and Reserve Best in Show went to Cooper!! What an exciting evening!
Unfortunately, I opened my BIG mouth, and while thanking the judge said..."If he doesn't do another thing all weekend, this was so worth it." Of course, Cooper took a back seat to his kids for the rest of the weekend...but isn't that what it's all about? Cooper's one weekend out of retirement this year gave us our most memorable UKC moment to date.
