Monroe County dog leaves Westminster with ribbon

KENDALL, Wis. (WKBT) – A St Bernard from Kendall in Monroe County is leaving the Westminster Kennel Club competition with a ribbon.

Panda, a 2-year old St Bernard, won the Best in Breed competition Wednesday morning along with his handlers Stacy Pagel and Pamela Bradau. The team moved onto the Working Breed competition Wednesday night. That’s where their journey ended.

Panda is only two years old , so this likely won’t be the last time we’ll see him on the show floor. His handlers hope to get an invite to the Westminster next year.
