BISS Multi BIS Can. & Am. Ch. Aotearoa Lee Ridge Tote "Salt"
In August 2011 BISS Multi BIS Can. & Am. Ch. Aotearoa Lee Ridge Tote ( Salt) made a spectacular come back to the all breed show ring after an absence of almost 18 months. Now in his prime at 5 years of age many did not recognize him as he has matured and darkened so much. In just 6 weekends from August to November he shot to a clear #3 position in the Top Dog rankings for the breed for 2011 with 3 Group 1sts, 8 Group 2nds, 1 Group 3rd, and 1 Group 4th. The following photos show some of the highlights from these 6 exciting weekends which made such an splendid finish to the 2011 show season for the AOTEAROA Irish Wolfhounds.
