Parson Russell Terrier 'Toodles' Sets Breed Record
“Toodles,” a spirited 3-year-old white-and-tan Parson Russell Terrier, has become the winningest dog in breed history. With nine Bests in Show and 46 Terrier Group Firsts, Multi-BIS/Multi-BISS GCH Brywood Heluva Ride set a record when he won his fifth Best in Show in 2016. The previous record holder was his dam, “Heidi” (Multi-BIS/Multi-BISS GCH Foxbend Colour Me More). Toodles, the 2016 and 2017 Parson Russell Terrier National Specialty winner, also captured Bests of Breed at the 2016 and 2017 Westminster Kennel Club dog shows with breeder-owner-handler Dana Bryson-Benn of St. Augustine, Florida. “Toodles has definitely lived up to his ancestors’ legacy. His granddam, ‘Fuzz’ (Multi-BIS/BISS CH Fox Valley Frolic), was the Best of Breed winner at Westminster in 2001 and also was a past National Specialty winner,” says Bryson-Benn. Co-owned by Bryson-Benn’s husband, Chris, and John and Kathy Garahan of Annandale, New Jersey, Toodles is fed Purina Pro Plan SPORT Performance 30/20 Grain Free Formula.
