      Battle of the breeds at Saginaw Valley dog competition

      A black standard poodle wins Best in Show at the Saginaw Valley Kennel Club dog show competition Sunday.

      It was a big weekend for man's best friend at the Birch Run Expo Center, where about 1,300 dogs of all breeds from across Mid-Michigan competed in the Saginaw Valley Kennel Club dog show competition Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

      There were long-haired, short-haired, big and little dogs strutting their stuff to please the judges.

      A regal, black standard poodle won the coveted ??Best in Show?? title Sunday.

      Show organizers were determined to stay impartial, when asked about their personal favorites.

      "My favorite dog? That's a loaded question,?? responded William Bills, chairman of the Saginaw Valley Kennel Club. ??All of them are my favorite dogs, they're all in my show."
