Be Inspired

Today’s Best In Show Daily features a singular competitor in the sport of purebred dogs, as well as a young lady who’s only just begun to compete.

CH Altana’s Mystique, the record-setting German Shepherd Dog handled by Jimmy Moses, holds the all-time record as the top-winning dog of all breeds. Her lifetime achievements, awarded by breed specialists and all-arounders alike, put her in a class by herself.

Ellie Goiffon is a 12-year-old breeder of champion Australian Terriers who has already proven herself a contender in the ring. With the support of her family, this young lady presents her homebred dogs with the same level of commitment as a seasoned exhibitor. Like ‘Mystique,’ Ellie seems poised to set records of her own.

I suspect you’ll find inspiration in both ladies’ stories.

CH Altana’s Mystique is, to our knowledge, far and away the top Best-in-Show-winning Herding dog, and indeed the top Best-in-Show-winning dog or bitch of all breeds, of all time.
