I couldn't find an online story about the winner but it was the puggle, Panco Villa who was very cute. (I'll post it when it comes out.) He did a routine that included some surfing. Very talented!
And a look back at Truman, last years winner. http://www.maineboats.com/print/issue-102/boatyard-dog-102 An update on him: He was adopted by a boatyard person (boatbuilder) who saw him in the magazine but was returned after a year for being to active. Fortunatly someone who knew him through the boatyard he was living at came and adopted him. He is doing fabulous in his new home. (I just love spotlighting him because no one expects a HOUND to win training competitions.)
