I was looking at MBISS Am. Can. Int. Ch. Beechcroft Study's Top Secret (James) and was wondering what MBISS stands for? Thanks.

Some people are like slinkies. Not really good for much, but bring a smile to your face when pushed down the stairs.
It's a variation on MMM-Bop.

Yep... this would be a dog who has won Best Of Breed multiple times at a specialty show. Since at a specialty show, Best Of Breed (BOB) is the highest conformation award (at all-breed shows, that dog would go on to compete against other breeds in the sporting dog group), that automatically makes him Best In Show. This is further designated as a "specialty show" win by the BISS (Best In Specialty Show- BIS would indicate that the dog had won Best In Show at an all-breed show... going Best Of Breed, 1st Place Sporting Group, then Best In Show). Or MBISS for dogs who have done it more than once.

I have seen people put this sort of thing (BNPIMBS) on their websites, and I have no idea what it means? It sure isn't an AKC abbreviation?
I know MBISS is Mulitple Best In Specialty Show, BIS Best In Show, BOS Best Of Opposite Sex, etc...

For the folks that put stuff like BNPIMBS...I absolutely hate it. It's usually done by folks that SHOULD know better too. Sometimes those abbreviations stem from UKC as well (not official or recognized in that forum as well). Best Novice Puppy in Multiple Breed Show...That's my guess. Novice Puppy is a UKC class and they will award Best Novice Puppy to the best pup in the show that day. Novice Pup is a non-standard class for the young ones and no points are awarded. It is like the new class offering AKC has for the young 4-6 month pups that can't actually compete in the show yet. Very similar to Best Puppy award that is often awarded at an AKC show for the best pup out of the pup classes.
Thanks LuvBrown, (I love brown too!) that is what I figured it probably meant, but wasn't sure. I tried UKC a few years ago, (I like AKC better) it wasn't my thing, although I know a fair amount of people that do like it.
