Deja Vu All Over Again

In one of my earlier posts I was reminiscing about all the breed records that fell in 2011. As I head to Palm Springs CA for the first show of the year, I am getting a sense of déjà vu for I have learned that several of the past season’s dogs will be followed by a new crop of related hopefuls.

The Bearded Collie, GCH CH Tolkien Raintree Mister Baggins, aka Roy, was shown by handler Cliff Steele to a breed best 75 career BIS. One of Roy’s daughters, CH Dunhill Celebration, will join Cliff this year. Olivia was Winner’s Bitch at her 2007 National Specialty and collected an Award Of Merit while watching her Dad go BISS at the 2011 National. Olivia was bred by & is owned by Carolyn O’Neil & Ray Harrington & Dr Kathy Harrington.

NOA

Handler Ernesto Lara showed the Dutch import, GCH CH Banana Joe v Tani Kazari to a Number Five Dog All Breeds ranking in 2011, capturing 34 BIS and finishing the year with a Toy Group First at the AKC/Eukanuba National Championship (AENC) last month. While Joey was doing his usual scene stealing thing, another Dutch Affenpinscher was working on her AKC championship in Orlando. Three year old NOA spent most of 2011 in Indonesia collecting BIS rosettes. Now she’s here with Ernesto to continue in Joey’s footsteps. NOA was bred by GA Schilder and is owned by J Budiman.

Faouziah’s Faramir

People ringside at the Hound Group judging at the Central Florida Kennel Club’s Friday show before the AENC were scrambling for their catalog to find out the name of the Pharaoh Hound at the end of Brian Livingston’s lead. It was not his usual charge, GCH CH Northgate’s As You like It, the top winning Pharaoh Hound in AKC history, but another Swedish import, but the three year old dog, Faouziah’s Faramir. After besting Qing in the breed Qiwi finished the day off with a five point major and a huge Hound Group Two. I’ don’t know if Qiwi can duplicate Qing’s 47 all breed Bests, but I know I will have fun watching him try. Qiwi was bred by Larsson Anna & Sadelheim Tanja and is owned by Jennifer Mosing & Jenny Hall.

These are just three of the dogs waiting to impress you this coming season. Check back with me here daily. I have lots more Back Stories to share with you.

    I believe Noa is here in the U.S. to get her championship and be bred – not to be campaigned. Banana Joe will continue to steal hearts and big ribbons in 2011 here in the U.S.
