Alberta Ormsby with CH X-Pert Brindle Biff

Alberta said this about Biff: " He'd just lift his feet like a horse, you know? Like a show horse. And away we'd go. Come on Biff we're going now. He'd wake right out of a sound sleep and on the collar would go. I'd change his collar from a bench collar to a show collar and we'd hurry over to the win! I always thought I had the best dog in the ring. I went in with the intention of winning."
