But, once again, our little Sweetie (Malagold's Everlasting Love) shows everyone how to do it - and wins the Open Bitch class. Malagold's Fast Cars N Freedom (Hemi) takes first place in her class and watches as her favorite traveling companion, Sweetie, goes on to take Winners Bitch, Best of Winners and Best of Breed as well.
