|Judge - Frank Tate|
I had the honor of judging Rockland County's first back to back show!
Lots of Listers showed up considering it was a work day. Miguel Betancourt,
lost without his lovely wife and help mate Beth, Trish Wylie with some
old guy in tow(old enough to be her father)<G>. There was even
a new (to me at least) young handler, named Pam Roose. Then there
was the ever anxious
and nervous Zoe Backman, with her unique doubling technique for all breed shows. Perhaps more on that later. Believe it or not, considering we were in the NE corridor and this being such
a small Friday show and all, we had animals here, sired by Ben(Evan & Tedi) in California, Ann Schultz in Michigan and Deeda Duncan, who I believe is from North Carolina.
WD & BOS - Am Bred dog -Espionage of Edan - Bred and Co-owned by Ann Schultz and handled by her co-owner Pamela Roose! This is a large strapping youngster. Clean at both ends. BONE. Good ears, mouth and temperment, good ring presence for such a yound dog. He beat out a very nice young dog who went
RWD 12-18 Dog - Breauhausen's Code Red - Bred by Leon and Betty Breault and Virginia Farnswoth and owned by the very gracious and bubbly Kathy Salvucci. This dog was very dry with a nice high wither and good back for such a young dog. showed great attitude and good temperament. Good mouth, feet, bone, temperament. The difference was inconsistentcy. The older dog just had a better day, but I felt either dog could have represented us in the group that day.
My surprise of the day, even to myself when I was forced to make my final decision, was.....
9-12 Puppy Bitch LEALYNN'S DARK ANGEL V ASGARD.Breeder Liz Leschhorn and
Owned by Dr Zoe M and daughter Janyne Backman & Liz Leschhorn.
RWB Open Bitch D'Cans Forever Love Breeder /Owner Deeda Duncan Again a nicely dark pigmented bitch. Good mouth, bone, feet, etc Great temperment, attitude, really wanted to go...which perhaps, caused her the loss. She performed much better in her class win then she did in the finals for winners bitch.
I want to thank
those exhibitors who manged to come, skipping a days
