"She's definitely in the big-time now," said Kent Boyles, co-owner of 3-year-old German Shepherd Rumor, who enjoyed celebratory meaty treats backstage after winning an earlier round on Monday on her way to being named best herder of the bunch. Panda, a 2-year-old shih tzu, won best of the toy group on Monday.
