Am/Can Ch. Westwind The Poet Laureate (9 Ch's)
"Robbie" gave us
several "firsts". He gave us our first National class
placement, and it was a thrilling win that came as a complete
surprise as he didn't have the maturity of the other competitors.
Robbie was our first Best of Breed winner and he also won a
U.S. major at his first U.S. show and was our first American
Champion! He was a fun and delightful little dog.
our first Best in Show winner. Pete campaigned
Sparkle in 1995 and she became the first Sheltie in either Canada or
the U.S. to top the Herding Group (Number One Conformation for the
year)! She was a
multiple Best in Show winner and a multiple Best in Specialty Show
winner, a Canadian National Specialty Best of Breed winner and an
American National Specialty Award of Merit winner. She was a
delight to show and our sweet beloved friend.
Am/Can Ch. Laureate Laredo, ROMC
"Dallas" was our first Best Puppy in Specialty
Sweepstakes winner. He won his first Best in
Sweeps win at exactly six months of age, pictured above
with judge Carol Howell.
His next show he won again, this time over 70 puppies!
At his next two Specialties, he won again, bringing his
undefeated string to four U.S. Specialty Best In
Sweeps. He was also our first Best Puppy in Show
winner, winning under noted judge Michelle Billings.
Dallas then went on to finish his U.S. Championship with three
back to back majors, two at
Specialties. He was a Best in Show winner and
despite being out of coat, placed 3rd at the Invitational "Show of Shows"...a
first for us!
