COLUMBUS—Ohio Senate President Larry Obhof (R-Medina) recently recognized Wadsworth resident Emily Holmes on the Senate floor. She competed in the Westminster Club Dog Show in New York last February with her Rhodesian Ridgeback "Bro," who won the "Best of Opposite Sex" title, which is the best dog that is the opposite sex to the "Best of Breed" winner. 

Holmes is a sixth-grade student at Central Intermediate School in Wadsworth, and this was her first time showing at the Westminster Club Dog Show. It is Bro's second appearance at the internationally-recognized show. 

"I'm impressed by Emily's hard work and determination which led to this championship," said Obhof.
